A Therapeutic Massage session may be sixty (60), or ninety (90) minutes long. In rare cases, a massage session could be extended to one hundred and twenty (120) minutes.
The Massage Practitioner, might suggest either shorter or extended massage sessions, based on a client’s therapeutic needs, and tolerance to treatment. However, a client’s decision regarding the length of their massage session, and treatment will always be honored, and respected.
The purpose of this practice is to help clients to develop, and maintain a healthy, pain-free, and balanced life-style. In order to stay true to this purpose, the Massage Practitioner may feel the need to provide their clients with helpful, and constructive advices on appropriate types of exercise for each individual case, changes of possibly harmful habits, nutrition, among others.
If the Massage Practitioner believes to be beneficial, they may also refer their clients to other professionals – which could contribute to their journey to health and balance, such as Physicians, Counselors, Physical Therapists, among others.
Other reasons the Massage Practitioner may refer their clients to another professional, are be based on cases that are outside of a Massage Therapist’s scope of practice, or simply due to the realization that the Massage Practitioner and their client are not a good fit for each other.
The success of a client’s treatment depends on compliance, determination, and trust in the Practitioner’s work, and intentions.
