Client Agreement

Client responsibility for your well-being

Clients are responsible for your own self care and decision making. If you have a specific medical condition or specific symptoms, somatic bodywork therapies may be contraindicated, including craniosacral therapy, myofascial unwinding, orofacial therapy, Spinning Babies®, Body Ready Method®, or developmental movement therapy. Because these somatic bodywork therapies, listed above, should not be performed under certain medical conditions, you affirm that you have named and described all your known medical conditions. You agree to keep the practitioner updated as to any changes in your medical profile and understand that there shall be no liability on the practitioner’s part should you forget to do so. A referral from your primary care provider may be required prior to service being provided.

You understand that the somatic therapy that you receive is provided for the basic purposes of balancing fascia, muscle tone and coordination, and for restoration of the craniosacral & fluid rhythms. You understand that developmental movement therapy/reflex integration is provided for the activation of essential neural connections. If you experience any pain or discomfort during a session, you will immediately inform the practitioner so that therapy may be adjusted to your comfort. You understand that the breech balancing program is not a guarantee that your baby will rotate, but instead opens space around the baby to allow room for their rotation. 

You further understand that somatic bodywork such as myofascial massage/craniosacral therapy and developmental movement therapy/reflex integration should not be construed as a substitute for medical examination, diagnosis, or treatment and that you should see a physician, chiropractor or other qualified medical specialist for any mental or physical ailments of which you are aware. You understand that somatic bodywork therapists are not qualified to perform spinal or skeletal adjustments, to diagnose, prescribe, or treat any physical or mental illness, and that nothing said in the course of the session given should be construed as such.

Payment Policy

Payment is due on the day of service for most bodywork appointments, and that some appointments may require a deposit. Payment is required in advance for classes, the breech balancing program, gift certificates and discounted packages.
