Our policy is to charge $30.00 after THREE missed appointments not cancelled 24 hours in advance. This $30.00 reservation fee is the deposit amount needed to reserve your time. The full amount will be credited back to you when you show up for your appointment. If you don’t show up for your appointment, you will forfeit the $30 and be required to pay the same fee to reschedule that appointment. The charges will be your responsibility and billed directly to you. Please help us to serve you better by keeping your appointment.
Pregnancy and Lymphatic Massages
If a licensed massage and bodywork therapist is providing pregnancy massage or lymphatic massage for first week post-surgery, he/she will need to meet the requirements pursuant to Rule .0502 as provided below:
.0502 GENERAL REQUIREMENTS
In the practice of massage and bodywork therapy, licensees shall:
(1) provide only those services that they have the training and practical experience to perform, and that are designed to benefit the health and well-being of the client;
(2) deliver treatment that ensures each client’s safety, comfort and privacy;
(3) inform clients of the scope and limitations of massage and bodywork therapy.
The Board is of the opinion that ‘trained and competent’ means either attending continuing education courses or courses through the initial massage therapy education. The LMBT should be trained and competent to provide pregnancy or lymphatic massage and such competence should be demonstrated and documented. The Practice Act and Rules and Regulations of the Board do not state specific hours that need to be attended. It would be beneficial for an LMBT to either speak with the CE provider or massage therapy program instructor regarding this information since they would be an expert in this field.
