Scope of Practice
All of Ola Mai I Loko Mai Massage Therapists are Licensed Professionals and held to the highest standards of the American Massage Therapy Association.
Massage Therapy is a profession in which the practitioner applies manual techniques, and may apply adjunctive therapies, with the intention of positively affecting the health and well-being of the client.
Massage Therapists do not diagnose or prescribe for medical conditions nor are they allowed to provide treatment for a specific condition without a doctor’s supervision. The massage therapist is required to refer you for diagnosis and to follow recommendations of your physician.
Existing and New Medical Conditions
It is the responsibility of the client to keep our staff informed of any medical treatment and or medications currently being taken, and to provide written permission from the physician, chiropractor, physical therapist, etc., if needed. The client must also keep the staff informed of any changes in health conditions.
This policy is to ensure that the wellbeing, safety, and health of our clients and staff are held to the highest standards. If you have any questions on the above information, please direct them to the staff at Ola Mai I Loko Mai.
Client Needs and Boundaries
Here at Ola Mai I Loko Mai we hold ourselves to the highest standards in regards to our clients needs and boundaries. Communication is KEY to ensuring that you are within a safe space and comfortable.
**It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to communicate your needs and boundaries effectively to our team members.**
You, the client, may choose to; leave on as much clothing as needed for comfort, refuse any massage methods, or stop massage at any time.
If at any time you feel uncomfortable, do not want a certain area touched, feel any pain, numbness, or tingling, pressure is too heavy or too light, temperature or environment in room or music is not to your liking, or anything else no matter how small please inform our team member immediately.
If at any time a subject, feelings, memories, experiences, or any variety of things come up that feel uncomfortable or unsafe please inform our team member immediately.

Client Sick Policy
In an effort to maintain a healthy environment, we ask that if you are sick (which includes a cold, a fever, the flu, etc.) or have the onset of symptoms of an illness that you reschedule your appointment. If you arrive for your appointment with symptoms of an illness, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment. This is for your well being as well as the health of our employees, therapists and clients.
Receiving a massage when you are sick is not advised. While in the early and acute stages of a cold, the flu or other illness, a massage can accelerate the onset of the infection and intensify its severity (via additional circulation of blood & lymph). If you get a massage after the infection has peaked, you may experience a relapse of symptoms and feel sick again. Please wait until you have been well for at least a week before getting your massage. If you do need to cancel your appointment, please call us as soon as possible and we will be happy to reschedule your appointment for a time when you are feeling better.
