I understand that the massage I receive is for the purpose of stress reduction and relief from muscular tension, spasm or pain and to increase circulation. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will immediately inform the massage practitioner so that the pressure or methods can be adjusted to my comfort level. I understand that massage professionals do not diagnose illness or disease or perform and spinal manipulations, nor do they prescribe any medical treatments, and nothing said or done during the session can be construed as such. I acknowledge that massage is not a substitute for medical examination or diagnosis and that I should see a health care provider for those services. Because massage should not be performed under certain circumstances, I agree to keep the massage practitioner updated as to any changes in my health profile, and I release the massage professional from any liability if I fail to do so.
By my signature I authorise Bayside Family Chiropractic to provide remedial massage to my child or dependent under 18years of age. I understand I am required to say with my child or dependant during the massage.
