Here is the link to the pdf detailing the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) in Health and Health Care.
I have taken a course called "Diversity: Cultural Competence" on June 10th, 2014 and passed it as my voluntarily compliance with this state legislation's requirement or strong recommendation. Please see my webpage on this website for a copy of the certificate as proof of my professional training.
Living in San Francisco and being born and raised here, I am very comfortable interacting with different cultures. It's one of the most enjoyable aspects of life in SF. I welcome all cultures as potential clients regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other demographic. At the same time, I do reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. I provide all forms in English and Spanish as these are the predominant languages in California. I can translate as needed via an language translation app on my phone.

As a Certified Massage Therapist (CMT), are you considered a licensed health care provider in the State of California?: No. California does not license massage therapy anywhere in the state unlike most states. California regulates and certifies the practice of massage therapy through it's governing body, the California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC). Per California state law SB 577, I am to state therefore that I am not licensed by the state as a healing arts practitioner. It's not a personal reflection on my training or qualifications, it is simply a fact that California does not license any healing arts practitioners.
