Unlike traditional spas and massage establishments, where there are several types of massages to choose from and price points, we offer a flat rate based solely on treatment time. The reason for this approach to massage services is simple…most people need an eclectic approach to their sessions, which often requires the use of several techniques, types of pressures, etc. to achieve the client’s session goals.
By having a flat fee, it allows both the client and therapist to custom design treatments without the worry of “upgrading” treatment categories and fees. (Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Oncology massage will be pricing exceptions)
(All services except lymphatic and oncology massage)
Medical massage consists of clinically targeted sessions which are 30 – 60 minutes in length, where the goal of a session is to address soft tissue inflammation, release fascia adhesions, realign scar tissue, reduce spasms and alleviate pain for 1-2 specific areas of the body. These techniques often differ significantly from traditional relaxation and therapeutic style massages.
Generally, a more detailed intake questionnaire is completed, and may include additional screening for range of motion, posture and gait screens, muscle imbalances, and nerve impingements. At the conclusion of session there are often follow-up home care exercise recommendations.
Other treatments that may occur in the session can include: E Stim, cold laser, hot and cold therapy packs and more. These treatments are supervised under our medical director when required by law.
Anyone can utilize medical massage services, with or without a physician’s prescription. Typical clients seek medical massage for reasons which include but are not limited: chronic pain, sports injuries, repetitive motion disorders, gait imbalances, vehicle accident and work related injuries and various medical chronic conditions.
Clients may be able to utilize their health insurance to pay for all or part of their services. HSA accounts are also eligible for use. How much is covered depends on several factors such as deductibles, coinsurances and if the plan covers the specific service. If you believe you may be eligible, please let us know and we can verify coverage prior to treatment.
Pregnancy is a special time in a woman’s life. While the joy of becoming a new mother is a time of wonder, the physical changes that each trimester brings there can sometimes lead to discomfort and need for pampering.
PLEASE BE ADVISED:
Pregnancy massage is generally beneficial, however, there are certain times where it might be contraindicated. Pregnancy massage is not suitable for women in their first trimester (weeks 1-12), for those who are considered high-risk by their physicians or post-partum (1-6 weeks post delivery).
In our services, we utilize cupping for scar tissue remodeling, releasing fascia adhesions and alleviating nerve impingements. While light bruising is possible, it is rare with this technique as the cups are in constant motion moving along fascia, muscle fibers and is designed to make soft tissue more pliable. This technique can be applied to a most types of massages and is included at the discretion of the therapist providing the service.
Lymphatic drainage massage is gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids which is in its own separate areas in the body. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps clean your immune system and remove waste and toxins from the bodily tissues. Various health conditions may cause lymph fluid to build up and present congestion which leads to swelling (edema). Lymphatic drainage massage can benefit people with lymphedema, autoimmune disorders like fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis, swelling post injury or surgery and from certain medical treatments.
Massage at most stages of cancer treatment can be highly beneficial. It helps to manage stress/anxiety, pain and discomfort of the treatments and from the condition itself. Oncology massage therapists are required to have extensive training to ensure the patient has the utmost care and safety. Each patient will have an extensive assessment prior to receiving services that will consider your health history, current medications and treatment protocols from all physician recommendations/restrictions.
