By signing below, I understand that Laura Durbin is not a licensed medical doctor and does not diagnose, treat, cure, or prescribe. I understand that herbal, dietary, and lifestyle recommendations I receive are traditionally considered safe. I assume all responsibility for decisions I make regarding my health. I understand that if I experience any pain or discomfort during my session(s), I will immediately inform the practitioner so that the pressure and/or posture or therapy can be adjusted to my level of comfort. I further understand that bodywork, herbal recommendations, or lifestyle recommendations should not be considered a substitute for medical examination, diagnosis, or treatment. I should see a qualified medical specialist for any mental or physical ailments that I experience. I understand that bodyworkers are not qualified to perform spinal or skeletal adjustments, diagnose or treat physical or mental illness, or prescribe any medications. Nothing said during a session should be interpreted as such. Since bodywork should not be practiced under certain medical conditions, I affirm that I have stated all of my known medical conditions, and I have answered all questions honestly. I agree to keep the practitioner updated to any changes in my medical profile, and I understand that there should be no liability on the practitioner's part if I forget to do so. I understand that the techniques of cupping and gua sha, as well as the use of herbal compresses, can leave reddening/burns or bruised coloring to the skin. I understand that I could have an allergic reaction to herbs, oils, liniments, balms, and herbal compresses. I understand that there is a risk of unknown reactions and injuries that can occur during bodywork, that emotional releases/ reactions can occur, and that I may experience detox symptoms and get a headache. During a session, I will inform my practitioner if the pressure is too much or if I wish for treatment to be stopped.

Lewd or sexual language or behavior will not be tolerated and will result in the immediate termination of the session or service and removal off of the premises or event. I also understand that I will still be responsible for full payment of the session and will not be able to make future appointments with The Belly Woman.
I understand that if I am late to my appointment or event I may not receive the full allotted time of my session or may not be permitted entry into the event, and that I am still responsible for full payment of the session/event. Additionally, if I am more than 30 minutes late to my session/event it may be given to another client, and I will still be responsible for full payment.
