No, I do not work with “the death.” That would be my cousin Dave the mortician (or his son Randell who has been into taxidermy since he was like 7, seriously, kid gives me the willies).

You always want work with somebody that you believe is a better interpreter than you are. It’s best though when both members of the team follow this rule.
Don’t take this Rule as legal advice, I’m just saying. According to at least one major insurance company:
“Massage therapy is qualified [as a tax deduction] when authorized by a physician confirming that massage therapy is prescribed as treatment of a specific medical condition.

See Rule 60:
Your honor, you are paying me to be here because I’m the expert in something you know nothing about, so please don’t argue with me when I do what you hired me to do. I did not question your ability to be ‘judgey,’ and if not constrained by CPC 2.5 I would offer an opinion that you are very judgey indeed! (In through the nose, out through the mouth…) Please let me do the job you are paying me to do-just get the CDI.
