Massage SOAP Notes
We have three SOAP note formats that you can choose to download. Each PDF can be printed and used as it is, or used as a template to create your own custom SOAP note. Massage therapy SOAP notes are commonly used to document regular (non-assessment) massage sessions. Some therapists also use the SOAP note format to document a client assessment (initial evaluation) as well. *Each Multiple Session SOAP note should contain only documentation for one client (3 separate massage sessions). You can learn more about writing SOAP notes in this article.
Chair Massage Forms
These chair massage forms are designed to help therapists organize their next onsite chair massage event. The time column on the chair massage signup form can be used for any massage duration (10-minute, 15-minute, etc.). It can be used at scheduled events where clients sign up for a specific time, or for walk-up events. The chair massage consent form can be used ‘as is’ or as a template to create your own.
Massage Informed Consent and Minor Consent Forms
Massage consent forms are designed to inform clients of the risks, responsibilities and expectations regarding massage therapy and bodywork services. An informed consent form for massage typically states the scope and limitations of massage therapy, and clarifies that the client is voluntarily seeking massage. It provides potential clients with the information needed to make an informed decision about whether or not massage is appropriate for their needs. Consent forms also typically include elements of liability release for the therapist.

Massage Liability Release and Physician Communications
Massage therapists should require every client to review and sign a liability release form or liability waiver before providing massage services. It is important to note that a signed form does not ensure complete protection from liability, especially in cases of negligence or malpractice. The waivers and forms offered here are standard liability release forms, and it is recommended that you consult with a local lawyer to discuss what steps you can take to minimize your liability risk. A medical release form must be signed by a client in order for you to share client information with 3rd parties such as another healthcare or insurance provider. The physician prescription request is a referral form template that massage therapists can use to help a client obtain a prescription for massage from their doctor. This is useful especially for therapists who practice medical massage or who plan on billing the client’s insurance and need to verify medical necessity.

This downloadable PDF massage therapy form was created to assist LMTs when screening new or current clients for coronavirus (COVID-19). This free covid forms may be used as it is, or as a template or framework to create your own customized form. *Please be aware that you may have specific rules and regulations in your jurisdiction regarding screening for covid, or inquiring about massage client vaccination.

Client Feedback Form
Massage client feedback forms are designed to help massage therapists gather useful feedback after client sessions in order to improve the client experience and create better client outcomes. This will ultimately result in increased client retention and referrals. Getting more repeat business means you can spend less time and energy marketing your practice, and spend more time working with clients. It also means happier customers and more financial security.
Massage Client Feedback Form
Remember that liability release forms and liability waivers do NOT guarantee liability protection, even if they are signed by the client. Service providers are still liable (responsible) for the results of their work, and all massage therapists should have liability insurance.

Some jurisdictions may have specific laws and requirements that are not reflected in these forms.
