I release my massage therapist from any and all liability from problems arising for my treatments as a result of information not given, or incorrectly given in the patient history and consultation prior to my massages. Because my personal and medical information is confidential, I understand that none of this information will be shared with any third parties unless I give my consent in writing. My therapist may recommend cupping to me as an alternative way to release tissues/muscles. If cupping is agreed to, I will communicate to my massage therapist any physical discomfort during the sessions. I have fully disclosed all health factors to my therapist, including those not mentioned on this Massage Consent Form to avoid any complications. It has been explained to me that there is a possibility of bruising from the release and clearing of stagnation and toxins from my body with cupping. I further understand that this will dissipate after a few days to a week. Clients and practitioners will refrain from alcohol or recreational drug use for at least 12 hours prior to any appointment. Clients who are taking prescription or over-the-counter drugs, including medically prescribed cannabis for pain management or anti-inflammatory purposes, should inform the therapist prior to the session.
