SOAP NOTE Documentation
For certification, you will need to document your CranioSacral work with SOAP notes. You may create your own SOAP note form, or use the sample one we offer on the this page. Massage therapists who include some Craniosacral Therapy with their bodywork often add a short section to the template they are already using, so they can document the number of minutes of CranioSacral therapy they did as part of the session.
What does SOAP Mean?
Subjective: What the client says
Objective: What you observe
Assessment: the result of treatment
Plan: What you plan to do next time
Client Bill of Rights
In Minnesota, alternative therapies are covered under Minnesota Statutes 146A.ll. Practitioners of alternative therapies such as CranioSacral Therapy must have their clients sign a Client Bill of Rights. See the required language here.
