Privacy & HIPAA
Unlike certain other massage therapy providers, we at Why Knot Bodyworks respect your privacy by closely following the guidelines laid out in HIPAA privacy policies with concern to client confidentiality. Therefore, we do not document or keep any medical information in either handwritten form nor electronic form. Consequently, if you have any medical conditions they must be stated before each session. Most importantly, we do not acknowledge client existence or status to any entity or person outside of Why Knot Bodyworks with the exception of automated services such as appointment setting software, payment processing, email, and texting. Also, due to complete system automation, you will receive emails and texts regarding your appointment status. By setting an appointment you are agreeing to these forms of service and communication. If you do not agree, please do not set an appointment.
