Record-Keeping For Massage Therapy
Increasingly, massage therapy is viewed as a health care modality, both by legislation and by consumers. As health care providers, massage therapists are expected to chart all patient visits, regardless of the type of therapy provided. That said, wellness sessions and curative sessions require different styles of charting. In this presentation you will learn how to document all patient sessions including a variety of record-keeping styles to meet the specific needs of your individual massage sessions, including SOAP, functional outcomes reporting, and wellness charting. This presentation is perfect for massage educators, massage students and professionals alike.
