Below we have put together a number of questions you may want to ask your massage therapist.
- What formal qualifications do you have?
- Do you have a first aid certificate?
- Can I claim the treatment through my Southern Cross insurance?
- Will you ask for a medical history?
For me professionalism is characterized by a couple of things, one been education and the other attitude.
A true professional will incorporate these into their treatments. Education will allow to access and treat clients for their specific needs and the attitude ensuring they are taken seriously to become the link into the health care system by knowing when to refer clients to other health Professionals, if necessary. I work closely with osteopaths, chiropractors , medical herbalists , personal trainers and Pilates instructors.
