Who is massage therapy good for?
Massage Therapy is beneficial for individuals of any age including infants straight through to the elderly. The Registered Massage therapist will go through your health history with you to determine whether massage therapy is right for you and what kind of treatment you require.
What happens on your first visit?
On the first visit, you will complete a confidential health history. This is important information for the Massage Therapist to be aware of any medical conditions or if you are taking any medications. The Massage Therapist will then develop a treatment plan with you so you can receive proper care to address your needs.
The therapist will then leave the room so that you may undress to your level of comfort and cover yourself on the table. During the treatment, only the part of your body being treated will be uncovered. You will have opportunity during the treatment to give feedback regarding pressure and pain levels.
Does Therapeutic Streams direct bill?
Yes, Therapeutic Streams direct bills for most insurance companies. However availability greatly depends on your benefits package and insurance company. A doctor’s note may be required for insurance purposes, so we ask most patient to contact their insurance provider to inquire about needing a doctor’s note to be reimbursed. For any insurance companies that do not accept direct billing or the option is unavailable to the patient. A detailed receipt will be given after treatment with the therapists information so you can manually submit the receipt to your insurance company.
