Position Statements and Practice Guidelines

Massage & Myotherapy Australia provides members and the public with Position Statements that are relevant to Massage Therapy, Remedial Massage, Myotherapy and their clients. Position Statements, Practice Guidelines and Policy Statements, are developed in consultation with the Board of Directors who further assess and approve each policy prior to publication and with each review.

The policies and guidelines adopted by the Massage & Myotherapy Australia are based on general moral, ethical and legal standards. Members should note that adherence to these policies and guidelines will not protect Members from the threat of litigation but are designed with the aim of significantly reducing the possibility of the threat of litigation. In certain instances, Members should consider seeking independent advice specific to their own practices.
