Code of Ethics

HOME > About > Ethics Standards

Feel truly safe and full protected

Just relax and unwind. Joseph practices a client-centred approach based on mutual trust and respect in accordance with the highest principles of the massage and bodywork profession.

High quality care

I serve the best interests of my clients at all times and provide the highest quality of bodywork and service possible. I carefully evaluate the needs of each and every client and refer them to another provider if they require work beyond my capabilities, or beyond the capacity of massage and bodywork.

Credentials

I establish my credibility by providing treatments and applying techniques for which I am fully trained and hold credible credentials. I do not use the trademarks and symbols associated with a particular system or group without authentic affiliation.

Respect

I demonstrate my respect for the dignity and rights of all individuals by providing a clean, comfortable, and safe environment, using appropriate and skilled draping procedures, and upholding the integrity of the therapeutic relationship.

Confidentiality

I keep client communication and information confidential and I ensure every effort is made to respect a client’s right to privacy and provide an environment where personal health-related details cannot be overheard or seen by others.

Make peace with your body

Book online with ease. No payment or desposit is required to hold your appointment.

Honesty in business

I set fair fees and practice honesty throughout my marketing materials. I acknowledge the limitations of massage and bodywork by refraining from exaggerating the benefits of massage therapy and related services throughout my marketing.

No discrimination

I do not refuse service to any client based on disability, ethnicity, gender, marital status, physical build, or sexual orientation; religious, national, or political affiliation; social or economic status.

Informed consent

I recognize my client’s right to determine what happens to his or her body. I understand that a client may suffer emotional and physical harm if as a therapist I fail to fully inform, to listen or imposes my own beliefs on choices relating to their care.

Do no harm

I evaluate my client’s health history to rule out contraindications or determine appropriate session adaptations. If I see signs of, or suspect, an undiagnosed condition that massage may be inappropriate for, I will refer the client to a physician.

Boundaries

In my practice I decisively refrain from and prevent behaviors or language that may be considered sexual from clients or myself. 

Profesionalism

I actively strive to positively promote the massage and bodywork profession by committing to self-development and continually building my professional skills.
