CRB Checks

Hi All, Just wondered if it is necessary for me to be CRB checked as a holistic massage therapist. I about to do my exams in January in ITEC holistic massage and am planning to set up as a part time therapist but want to make sure I am doing everything correctly. Many thanks. Kind regards, Jo

As far as I'm aware you don't have to be CRB Checked. Your local council may require you To be checked when you apply for your licence To massage, if this is required in your area. Best Check this on your council website. It's a good Idea to be CRB checked and you can state this when Advertising yourself. You will of course have to Pay for it. Hope this helps And good luck with your exams. B

I would recommend that you get CRB checked, especially if you are massaging minors.

I always ensure that the minor's parent or guardian is present throughout the whole massage too and get the minor and their parent/guardian to sign the medical consultation form/consent to massage form.
