- Touchstone Wellness Center Responsibility Pledge -
Our mission at Touchstone Wellness Center is to support you in taking control of your own well-being. This is a process that happens one day at a time, one choice at a time. We ask you to make the clear choice to honor the limits of your body during the events you participate in. When you first begin to notice strain in any pose or other activities, honor that signal and relax into the level of stretch or effort you achieved just before the strain was detected. You will not be failing in any way. The sensation of the strain helps identify precisely where you need to relax the tissue. Going beyond that degree of stretch is a disservice to you. There is no value in trying to keep up with others in the group.
I acknowledge that yoga and other physical activities can result in damage to the body if carried out without due consciousness. I acknowledge that I am aware of possible injuries and I hereby release Touchstone Wellness Center and its staff from liability for any injury or damage resulting from my participation in class or workshop.
In addition, I acknowledge that it is my right and responsibility to promptly inform the practitioner of any pain or discomfort during a session, so that the pressure, strokes, or temperature of stones may be adjusted to my level of comfort. I further understand that a licensed massage therapist, and other Touchstone licensed providers, do not diagnose illness, disease or any other medical, physical or psychological disorder and nothing said in a session should be construed as such. I am responsible for consulting a qualified physician for any problems that I have.
I acknowledge that massage and other physical activities can result in damage to the body if carried out without due consciousness. I acknowledge that I am aware of possible injuries and I hereby release Touchstone Wellness Center and its staff from liability for any injury or damage resulting from inaccurate information.
I agree to notify Touchstone Wellness Center of any changes to my physical and mental profile and understand that there shall be no liability on Touchstone Wellness Center should I not do so. Because modalities offered by Touchstone is not appropriate with certain mental and physical conditions, I affirm that I will share all known mental and physical conditions with Touchstone Wellness Center and answer all questions on intake forms honestly.
