The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) released a revised Massage Consultation Document for massage therapists. The Texas Administrative Code requires massage therapists to provide a consultation document under the following circumstances:
- Before a client’s first massage therapy session
- If the client’s reason for seeking massage therapy changes
- If any information in 16 TAC, Section 117.91(a)(1-4) is modified
- Before each session during which breast massage will be performed (unless written consent is received on a separate document)
Use this checklist on page two to make sure your current consultation document meets the current TDLR requirements. Page three is a sample consultation document for you to reference to create or update your own. As the use of a consultation document is a Texas rule, failure to comply could result in disciplinary action.
If you have questions, contact TDLR through their website or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
