Re: Insurance Ethics!

Thank you both for your advice.

I only provided the client with receipts and SOAP notes. I don't anticipate her rebooking. That's best for both of us.

Insurance Ethics!

A client whom I originally told that I don't handle insurance paid me my normal rate by checks for several sessions. She is now asking for receipts, notes, codes and diagnosis so she can submit these to her insurance company for reimbursement. It is my understanding that I will need to let her know ...

Lap Band and abdominal work?

Does anyone have experience with this?
Do we need to avoid that area?
Can we massage, incl. psoas, the rest of the abdomen?

Re: changing websites?

Thank you Marion, when he gets a chance... More information is my current clients won't be going to my old site, so no one should be looking for it. I think that might matter as to the "just delete" the old one question. If the answer is still "no, I need to have them (they) 301 it," who does that, ...

Re: changing websites?

I found a "delete this site" link in the website info home page of the company I'm trying to move away from. What are the repercussions if I do this?

My new site, with my new company, is up and I (after several tries) submitted it to Google, Bing and Yahoo.

Uh oh!

I was hoping I could just "cancel" the old site since I won't be with that host company anymore. Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to ask your son and posting.

changing websites?

I am switching hosts and changing my domain name but I'm keeping the same business name.

Does anyone know if I need to "unsubmit" my old website from Google so that my new website can rank on a higher page?

Re: merchant can pause Grou pon?

I don't think this is appropriate for me since I'd only want a few and I want to make sure I can manage the details as to how many and how quickly.

I need to take good care of myself and my regulars.

merchant can pause Grou pon?

I was told by a groupon salesperson that the Merchant can pause or stop the sales campaign at any time if they feel they are selling too many appointments. The salesperson knew from the beginning that I only wanted to sell a few but he said their minimum is 50. Does anyone know about this? (I can't ...

If you have to do the flexed fingers stroke for class, practice relaxing fully your non-stroking hand (assuming you alternate left, right, left, right,) even if just for 2 seconds.

My school also "encouraged" us to use Biotone. Ylang-ylang & Orange Massage cream from deeptissue.com has "olive oil, bees wax, coconut oil, ylang ylang & orange essential oil, vitamin E". I think the lavender has even less ingredients. They do have a light smell. I get sensitive to smells and avoid...
