An RMT may terminate a therapeutic relationship in the following circumstances:
Unless treatment is terminated because continued massage therapy is no longer indicated, a patient whose treatment has been terminated is entitled to be referred to another practitioner except where a patient either sexualizes or attempts to sexualize the treatment or treatment environment, or threatens or otherwise endangers the RMT. In such cases:
RMTs should carefully document the reasons for any termination of a patient relationship. This is especially important in cases where the termination occurs as a result of the patient sexualizing the treatment, or threatening or endangering the RMT. The documentation may be kept in the patient file, and should consist primarily of direct facts and observations rather than judgments or subjective comments.
