Why do massage therapist need to protect themselves and their practice?
There can be several causes of injuries to individuals who undergo massage therapy including:
1- the failure to provide for sanitary massage chairs and beds,
2- failure to adequately train and supervise,
3- defective or improperly maintained equipment,
4- failure to ask for the individuals medical history or provide for a full pre-massage evaluation
Remember, when something goes wrong and a massage client gets injured, you could be liable and possibly sued.
