TraditionalBodywork.com registers individuals, organizations, groups, and networks that offer traditional healing arts, massage, bodywork, alternative or complementary health care services, treatments, education and training.
The information we display about training or treatment providers is based on data encountered on a provider’s Web or Social Media site(s), info sent to us by the provider, or info we’ve found through the Internet or other resources.
Although registered providers may also operate in other fields, our foremost effort is displaying items that relate to traditional, alternative, and complementary medicine systems.
Before adding a trainer or treatment provider in our database we examine the applicable Web or Social Media sites and we use the information found, as is, to register and display the data in our provider directory.
We assume that the content transmitted by the provider’s Web or Social Media site or through email is truthful, accurate, not misleading and offered in good faith, and that the provider has the right to transmit such content.
We do not claim to be complete and may, unintentionally, have omitted provider info or have copied data inaccurately. Providers are welcome to communicate to us any missing, changed or incorrect information or send us an updated profile of their services.
Mind also that registered providers may (have) operate(d) on/in more locations/countries, or may (have) offer(ed) additional services or modalities not related to the traditional healing arts.
A provider may also be affiliated to certain professional organizations or may have accreditations and certifications not mentioned in the provider description. These need to be further verified with the provider.
All content on this website is for informational purposes only and not intended to serve as a substitute for the consultation, diagnosis, or medical treatment of a qualified physician or other professional healthcare provider.
As for examples of exercises provided, if you’re not an experienced bodyworker or health professional, or if you are not sure you can do the exercises described, or have a medical history, please first consult your physician or another medical professional for advice.
Payments & Refunds
Some of our services may require payment. TraditionalBodywork.com may implement such services, for instance, advertisement and sponsored posts, on the website, our social media channels and/or our newsletters. We do this before sending you an invoice in order for you to first review and acknowledge for yourself the correctness of the implemented service before paying us.
Making a payment for a service such as as mentioned above implies you have confirmed the correctness of the service offered and agree with its implementation. We generally use PayPal for these payments. We don’t refund payments of agreed upon services.
