Client Assessment and Treatment Planning
The Client Assessment and Treatment Planning section of the massage exam determines the MBLEx candidate’s understanding of this component of the massage therapist’s skill set. Professional massage therapists should be able to perform a competent client assessment, and then establish a safe and effective treatment plan and client goals based on these findings. The initial assessment includes written data collection, as well as visual assessment for things like posture and gait analysis. The hands-on evaluation uses palpation assessment skills and range of motion assessment skills to gather more information needed to establish the treatment plan. The MBLEx exam candidate must demonstrate good clinical reasoning and knowledge of the basic organization and flow of the evaluation and treatment process. Our MBLEx flashcards are a great addition to a comprehensive massage exam preparation.
