Legislation and the Masseur

From:- The Journal of the Australian Association ‘Massage Therapists – February 2004 http://www.aamt.com.au/journals/Feb2004/3_legislation_and_the_masseur.doc

Whilst this article is based around the legislation pertaining to massage therapists in Western Australia, it serves as a timely reminder for all therapists to learn and understand any local policies and laws that govern their own businesses. I recommend consulting not only your local massage schools, but also your local/state/federal laws on the matter. I cannot stress how important this is, as well as joining an “Association” such as the ‘Australian Association of Massage Therapists” or the British, American, Canadian, Indian etc counterparts in your own part of the world. As the article says, there is “strength in numbers”.

Code of Ethics

Whilst this article is written in Australia, it is a timely reminder for all therapists around the world about the Code that should be followed/adhered to when providing any type of manual therapy. There are a lot of dangers and risks involved in the manual therapy industry, and it is incumbent upon each and every one of us to follow the rules/ethics of our particular country or state to ensure that a/. the rules are not broken, and b/. that the reputation of ourselves and the whole industry is maintained or even improved upon.
