What does my first session look like?
During your first session, I will go over your history and review any information that you may have from your primary healthcare physician or other healthcare providers. There will be extensive testing as well as postural assessment to help create a plan for treatment.
My sessions are very hands on and include myofascial release and neuromuscular re-education. Throughout treatment I will ask for your feedback and will re-test often to ensure that we are on the right track. Yoga- based stretches may also be a part of your treatment and instructions will be given so that they can be done at home.
Please note that evaluation and treatment is usually done in your undergarments for easier visual assessment and treatment. If this is uncomfortable for you, please let me know and we can come up with other alternatives such as swimwear or running shorts.
How long are you sessions?
Your first session is 2 hours. Follow up appointments will generally be 90 minutes. In some cases, an individual will need to be treated at 2 hours for their first few sessions.
What are your rates?
Initial appointment (2 hours): $185
Follow up appointments (90 minutes): $165
What are your hours of availability?
I normally do not work on weekends but will consider it for emergencies and clients traveling from long distances.
Do you take health insurance?
At this time I am an out of network provider. I can supply you with a superbill that can be submitted to your personal insurance provider for reimbursement. Many people do this and have been reimbursed at a reasonable percentage but that is up to the discretion of your provider.
To better assist with you with reimbursement, here are some questions to ask your insurance company.
*Do I have out of network benefits and what is my outpatient massage therapy coverage?
*What do I need to be aware of regarding any restrictions or limitations on my massage coverage?
(This includes whether or not payments for out of network massage will go toward your deductible).
*Do I need a prescription or referral? If so, who needs to write it?
What about auto accidents?
I accept Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) patients and have a medical biller on board who can assist in managing bills and any necessary paperwork to be sent to an attorney and auto insurance company. It is also a good idea to have your primary healthcare physician write out a referral for myofascial release.
