Our Services

 

This disclaimer relates to Remedial, Sport, Pregnancy, Lymphatic & Relaxation Massage, all services provided by Kala Body.

Remedial Massage Therapists are trained to assess and treat muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue and treat injuries and soreness.

The response to Remedial Massage is different for different people. 

Some people will get bruising or tenderness after the massage, which is a normal response. 

Our service is provided to help rehabilitate within our trained scope. Ease discomfort in our client with a treatment and advise on at-home care(also in our scope).

 

KALA BODY’S RESPONSIBILITY

We provide qualified massage therapists. 

Their qualifications include first aid training, Diploma level Massage Certification in Remedial Massage. All our therapists must maintain their qualification under their associations. We ensure that all our therapists maintain their qualifications following their Association compliance and by conducting quarterly and yearly checks on all therapists.

On the first massage appointment, we will ask for you to complete a Health History Consent form allowing us to treat you and this must be filled to your best knowledge to allow us to adjust the massage treatment if necessary. 

While in the pandemic we will send a Covid-19 health check-up that must be completed before arrival. 

We will then create a treatment plan around any issues or requests you may have. On arrival, we will record your treatment notes electronically on our IPAD using an encrypted server called SOAP notes. We must document our treatment plans for health insurance and for our Association compliance which is in line with our privacy policy.

We will provide you with appropriate draping for your treatment in accordance with our association standards. This ensures that your genitals are always covered, and we only access areas as part of your agreed treatment plan, this should be discussed with you by the therapist at the start and during your appointment.

 

YOUR RESPONSIBILITY

You must give consent to allow a Kala Body therapist to treat you; this will be provided at your first visit or initial appointment. You must complete this document for us to begin our treatment.

Suppose you are not well, or not sure if you should be getting a massage. You should seek medical advice before booking or attending your appointment. If you are unsure, you can contact us so we can advise on what you should do.

If you are pregnant, you must book a pregnancy massage or advise us immediately if you are pregnant or trying to conceive. Pregnancy Massage requires a completely different treatment plan to standard remedial massage, and it is for the safety of your unborn child and yourself that you disclose this information to your therapist as soon as possible.

PROBLEMS

For Kala Body to provide the most appropriate treatment, you must advise us on your current health condition, medications or any health concerns you may have before we begin treatment. You must also notify us at any appointment if anything has changed. Kala Body will store this information in line with the Privacy Act and our privacy policy.

If at any point during your treatment, you must inform the therapist if you experience any pain or discomfort so we can alter our treatment or cease treatment immediately.

If you have any other queries or questions, or you don’t feel comfortable, it is best to raise them immediately with your therapist. The therapist may be able to talk you through your treatment or explain what you may be experiencing, or alter their treatment plan. Or you can ask for the treatment to stop.

At any point you feel unwell after your appointment, if you experience pain that gets worse or stays the same, please seek medical help or advice, please also let us know so we can make a note of your records.

 

SUITABILITY

Our service is not suitable for people who have burns, skin infections, blood clotting issues, fever, certain types of cancer or Rheumatoid Arthritis. Some blood-thinning medications are also not suitable. 

Medications such as ibuprofen or any painkillers are contraindications as they mask pain in treatment and should not be taken up to 4 hours before an appointment.
