Policies & Procedures
  • Therapist Credentials

    Your LMMT massage therapist is licensed by the Georgia Board of Massage Licensing. This means your massage therapist is licensed for use of therapeutic modalities and agents with the intention of soft-tissue manipulation, neuromuscular reeducation, and/or joint mobilization. Your therapist may recommend home-maintenance activities including but limited to self-massage, self-administrated hydrotherapy, movement and stretching activities, stress-reduction and stress-management techniques, and meditation.

     

    Procedural Details

    Disrobing: Clients may undress to their level of comfort only after the therapist has exited the client’s line of site. The client will give a verbal “OK” once situated under the draping as instructed by the therapist.

    Draping: The therapist will only undrape the areas of the body being worked on. The exception may occur during sports massage if the client remains at minimum in shorts and (for women) a sports bra.

    Re-dressing: The client will wait until the therapist has exited line of site to remove the drape and re-dress.

     

    Post-Massage Expectations

    Massage modalities used to treat muscle spasms and trigger points can often leave a client mildly sore and/or bruised for 1-3 days after a massage. If the client has any concerns about additional effects, those concerns should be communicated to the therapist immediately.

     

    Right of Refusal

    Client: The client has the right to terminate the session at any time for any reason.

    Therapist: The therapist has a right, responsibility, and obligation, when a contraindication is suggested or presented, to refuse to treat a client or local area involved until the client obtains written or verbal permission to proceed from a qualified health practitioner. The therapist may also terminate a session due inappropriate language or actions by a client.

    • If a therapist terminates a session due to inappropriate behavior, an incident form will be completed, and the client is responsible for payment of the entire scheduled session which will be paid before any future sessions.
    • The therapist reserves the right to issue a warning before terminating the therapeutic relationship with the client or to immediately terminate said relationship.

     

    Fees

    Session length and subsequent fees, including discounts, will be agreed upon prior to the start of a session.

     

    Cancellation

    A 24-hour notice is required for cancellation of an appointment, or you will be charged 50% of the scheduled appointment. Payment is due before your next appointment.

     

    Tardiness

    Appointment times are as scheduled and cannot extend beyond the stated time to accommodate late arrivals. Please be on time to your appointment.

     

    Sickness

    Massage/bodywork is not appropriate care for infectious or contagious illness. Please cancel your appointment as soon as you are aware of an infectious or contagious condition. If it is within the 24-hour notice period, the cancellation fee may be waived.
