CBD Oil I have been asked on a handful of occasions if I use or would be willing to use CBD oils that clients bring with them. The North Carolina Board of Massage and Bodywork Therapy (NCBMBT) made a decision recently on the subject of CBD oil and ruled that the use of the product was out of the scope of practice for massage therapists to use.

Stretching Sessions A new business has been popping up in North Carolina that offers assisted stretching sessions to clients. While stretching can be a healthy habit, it is important to be aware of your personal limits and the professionals you work with. The NCBMBT, after reports of injuries, recently renewed a decision that stretching practices fall within the scope of massage therapy and sessions must be performed by licensed massage therapists. Why is this important? It comes back to consumer safety; stretching sounds safe and easy but can lead to muscle injury if not done properly. You can read board notes by Clicking Here (Page5, New Business)
