It is my choice, as a client, to receive massage therapy with Paula Ondov at Beyond the Bone Bodywork. I understand that bodywork and massage
therapy given here is for the purpose of body/mind/spirit awareness and integration,
stress reduction, relief from muscular tension or spasm, for increasing circulation and energy flow. If I experience any
pain or discomfort during this session, I will immediately inform the practitioner so
that pressure or strokes may be adjusted to my level of comfort.
I understand that massage therapists do not diagnose illness, disease or any other physical or mental disorder;
nor do they prescribe medical treatment of any kind. I acknowledge that massage is not a substitute for medical
examination, diagnosis or treatment, and that it is recommended that I see a physician for these services.
I understand that massage/bodywork practitioners
are not qualified to perform spinal or skeletal adjustments, diagnose, prescribe, or
treat any physical or mental illness, and that nothing said in the course of a
session should be considered as such.
Because massage/bodywork should not
be performed under certain medical conditions, I affirm that I have stated all my
known medical conditions and have answered all questions honestly. I agree to
take it upon myself to keep the massage therapist updated on my health and wellbeing and I
understand that there shall be no liability on the practitioner‘s part should I fail to
I also understand that any illicit or sexually suggestive remarks or
advances made by me will result in immediate termination of the massage, and I will be
liable for payment for the full time scheduled.
