I understand that the above-named practitioner is NOT a primary therapist or a medical professional. She does not, therefore, diagnose or treat. Any idea exchanges are not to be construed as exercise or treatment, but only suggestions based on her training and experience as a Massage and Bodywork Practitioner.
I understand that Massage is now licensed in Massachusetts. Credentials are also available through national associations, approved schools, and accredited continuing education. The above practitioner's certification is the assurance that she graduated from an American Massage Therapy Association's approved school (Potomac Massage Training Institute) and is a member of that national association in good standing. However, no insurance coverage can be assumed.
I understand that I am participating in massage and bodywork sessions with a basic knowledge of its purpose and functions (as outlined in Philosophy, Policies, and Code of Ethics pages). I am aware that I am taking my own responsibility for enhancing my health through this approach.
If I am currently under a physician's care, I have contacted her/him regarding my participation in massage and bodywork sessions, and that physician has given her/his consent for such services.
I have read this Working Agreement in its entirety, have discussed any questions that I have regarding its contents, and have noted here any amendments agreed upon by both parties.
(signed and dated by both parties at the time of the initial session)
