Massage Therapist Outcome Measures
The quality of our service is typically managed by self-reported pain measures from our clients.
This is because most people engage in massage therapy to assist with pain management so we like to know if our service is actually helping decrease or manage their pain.
Our massage therapists also work collaboratively with our Allied Health professionals, such as our Physiotherapists, to determine any other areas that we can assist people with.
