Q: Do I have to take off all of my clothes?
A: Massage is best administered with a skin on skin contact, but if you do not feel comfortable in removing all the clothing then remove only the clothing you are comfortable with removing. You will be fully draped with no compromise of your modesty. Only the area being worked on will be uncovered. Before and after the treatment, you will undress and dress in private.
Q: What parts of my body will be massaged?
A: Depending upon the problem, the body part will be undraped and treated. However your comfort and privacy will be kept in mind and your choice and opinion on what parts of your body you would prefer to be treated will be respected. Please feel free to discuss it with your therapist before the treatment begins.
Q: How many treatments will I need to notice an improvement?
A: It depends on the individual, his or her current state of general health and particular condition. I will suggest a treatment plan including number and frequency of visits. If at any time you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.
Q: What is your availability?
I am committed to ensuring you get an appointment the same day or within 24 hours of your call. There are instances where this is not possible so therefore you are suggested and encouraged that you book an appointment a week or more in advance. I will often suggest scheduling a few appointments to ensure a proper therapeutic response for your body. Since it may have taken years or even decades for these problems to develop, the process of healing may require a series of treatment sessions. It is common to treat a condition for up to six sessions before critically assessing the results of the treatments.
Q: Do you have cancellation policy?
I ask for at least 24 hours prior notice of a cancellation, otherwise you will be responsible for the full treatment fee.
Q: Does my extended health care cover your treatments?
The majority of extended health care plans cover registered massage therapy treatments.
Do I need a doctor’s referral?
You do not need to have a referral to see an RMT. If you are being covered by your extended health care plan be sure to check your policy to see if a referral is needed in order to be reimbursed for the treatments.
