The rules around massage in Washington State are constantly changing, and more than ever you need to make sure you know the updates on draping, breast massage, record keeping, etc. Some of these changes are due to the nature of complaints filed against massage therapists here in our state on these very issues. How do we work with our clients in an environment that’s not only changing but that also sees an increasing number of complaints being filed with the Department of Health against us? And, the Department of Health is not our only area of concern, there are civil and even criminal risks for us and even risks with insurance carriers wanting refunds because of fraudulent practices.
This class, which also meets the Washington State requirements for ethics, including roles and boundaries, is like ethics on steroids and takes an in-depth and candid look at these changes and prepares you for what lies ahead and hopes to encourage you to take a fresh look at your risk management plan.
Your Instructors bring their very unique experiences in teaching this class:
- Marybeth Berney, LMT has served as an expert witness in civil lawsuits involving massage therapists, and has worked for the Department of Health on cases to help determine the legitimacy of complaints brought against massage therapists.
