Transparency

  • Seated Massage provides our clients with professional vetted, insured massage practitioners.
  • We and they make every effort to provide all recipients with quality, safe and ethical professional massage services.
  • We require you to be transparent with your massage practitioner regarding your current health.

Responsibility

  • Re: Vaccine rollout – Massage is contra-indicated (not to be applied) if you have received a vaccination within the 3 days prior to our visit. Please advise your practitioner or your employer and exclude yourself from receiving a massage this time.
  • A dual responsibility exists regarding the disclosure of recipient health information.
  • It is the responsibility of your attending massage practitioner to verbally request current health information from you.
  • It is equally your responsibility to advise your attending massage practitioner prior to your massage start, of any current health issues or concerns you have.
  • This, in turn, helps your practitioner determine how to apply and even whether to apply massage this visit. There are instances when it is deemed unethical to apply massage due to recipient ill health or other current health issues.
