WA State Laws have been changed and now require that massage therapists receive consent for various types of massage and procedures. This sample template will help you in creating your own form that will suit your massage business.
As licensed health care providers in Washington State our conduct is overseen by the Department of Health (D.O.H.). The D.O.H. serves the primary purpose of consumer protection, seeing to it that the consumers of all forms of health care have an advocate, and at the same time, serving to police the conduct of all health care providers here in our state.
Because there are so many categories of health care providers it is almost impossible for D.O.H. to do all that can be done to educate specific categories of consumers. For instance, currently there is no brochure produced by the state to assist massage consumers in knowing what to look for when seeking real, professional massage here in Washington State. Because of this, the WSMTA. has teamed up with Watson Consulting Services to produce the Real Professional Massage brochures, essentially a consumer’s guide to finding legitimate, licensed and professional massage in Washington.
These generic brochures are available at no cost through the WSMTA website in the form of a PDF file that you can download and print in your office.
