Will massage therapy help me?
You should know within 1 to 3 sessions if massage therapy can help you.
I generally encourage patients to follow up within 7-10 days after their initial visit. From that point we can talk about what you can do on your own for long term relief. You may return as many times as you wish, but I will never tell you that you require ongoing maintenance.
What if I've been in a car accident?
If you've been hurt in a car crash, you can book in for a massage immediately. ICBC may require a doctor's note for additional visits. You will be required to pay at the time of your treatment, and can submit your receipt to ICBC for reimbursement.
Do you do direct billing?
Direct billing is available through most insurance companies. If your insurance company does not offer direct billing for massage therapists, you will be given a receipt at the time of payment that you can then submit for reimbursement. Direct billing is available for Veterans' Affairs and the RCMP through Medavie Blue Cross.
It is your responsibility to check with your insurance provider for annual coverage limits, and to determine if you need a doctor's referral prior to receiving treatment.
Do you bill to MSP?
For patients on MSP premium assistance, $23 will be deducted from your fee. This applies to your first ten visits to an extended health provider, which includes massage therapy, chiropractic care, physiotherapy, naturopathy, acupuncture, and non-surgical podiatry.
