Massage therapy is one of the oldest healing arts, dating back over 3000 years. Medical massage is goal focused, out-come based massage. It is very successful at treating or assisting the treatment of a variety of conditions.
Some of the benefits of Massage Therapy include:
Massage therapy is especially helpful during times of injury rehabilitation, pregnancy, athletic training and during and after cancer treatment. The best way to learn more about how massage therapy may help your specific concerns is to talk to your massage therapist.
Many insurance providers provide medical massage coverage. Your primary care provider or your chiropractor will need to provide you with a massage referral, in essence a prescription for massage. Massage referrals are transferable and may be taken to any licensed massage therapist. Included on the massage referral will be the diagnosis codes for your conditions and and treatment parameters regarding frequency and duration of massage therapy sessions. Your massage therapist will keep medical notes documenting your treatment sessions and progress on the conditions being treated.
Fees & Insurance Billing:
Currently I do not provide insurance insurance billing services. Payment in full for medical massage services is expected at the time of service. The fee for a one (1) hour medical massage appointment is $80.00.
During each appointment there will be an intake form to complete, a discussion regarding changes in your condition since your last medical massage appointment, and a current assessment. You will be given a superbill that you may send to your insurance carrier for reimbursement.
Appointment Cancellation & Rescheduling Policy:
Please provide 72 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. A fee equal to the appointment fee will be charged for appointments changed with less than 72 hours notice.
I do recognize that illness & other unforeseen circumstances do occur. To accommodate this each client has one opportunity annually to reschedule or cancel an appointment and not incur a fee.
