CONSENT I understand that this consent is purely voluntary. I have had the opportunity to discuss any concerns with regard to the services and treatment and by which all questions were answered accordingly and to my satisfaction. I understand that I can withdraw anytime from working with Red Beard Somatic Therapy.
I understand that any service provided by the practitioners working for Red Beard Somatic Therapy is intended to enhance relaxation, improve autonomic nervous system regulation, reduce pain caused by muscle or connective tissue tension, increase range of motion, improve circulation, and offer a positive experience of touch (where applicable).
The general benefits of bodywork and other somatic treatments, possible contraindications, and the treatment procedures have been explained to me. I understand these therapies are not substitutes for medical treatment or medications, and that it is recommended that I concurrently work with my Primary Caregiver for any condition I may have. I am aware that the therapists do not diagnose illness or disease, nor prescribe medication, and that spinal manipulation will not be part of any therapy performed with Red Beard Somatic Therapy.
I have informed my therapist of all my known physical conditions, medical conditions and medications, and recent or relevant traumas that may influence our work. I will keep the therapist updated on any changes. I have received a copy of the Practice Policies. I understand them and agree to abide by them.
