Frequently asked questions
What do I wear during treatment?
You may wear as much or as little clothing as you wish, whatever makes you feel comfortable. You will be covered by a sheet and blanket at all times. I will uncover one area at a time for treatment and will cover it again when I am finished. I will always explain the treatment plan in detail, along with which part of the body I will be uncovering and touching. If you are uncomfortable with the treatment plan, you can let me know at anytime, and I will modify it to your comfort level.
Is my massage covered under insurance?
Many extended health benefit plans cover massage therapy treatments provided by a registered massage therapist (RMT). If you are not sure, contact your insurance company and ask the following questions:
Is there a deductible? Is it per calendar year (i.e., January – December)?
Is there a maximum amount per visit?
Do I have to obtain a doctor’s note before receiving a massage in order to submit a claim for benefits?
Are massage treatments painful?
What can I expect during my first visit?
How do I book an appointment?
I am happy to offer online booking! Please click the 'Book Appointment' button on the homepage or at the top of the Treatments page. If you cannot find a time that suits you, or do not want to book online, you are able to book an appointment by email, over the phone, or through the contact section located at the bottom of each page. If you cannot reach the receptionist or myself by phone, please leave a message with your name and number and I will get back to you.
Do you offer direct billing?
Yes, I offer direct billing through most major insurance companies. Please contact me to find out if your insurer is eligible for direct billing.
What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping treatments use a combination of massage strokes and suction to lift, separate, and stretch underlying soft tissues. Cups may be applied on an affected area and moved over the surface in a gliding motion, or possibly put on a fascial adhesion or trigger point for a short time to reduce or eliminate it.
