WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST VISIT
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to fill out your health history form. This is an important document as it is a snapshot of your health over time and lets the therapist know what areas to assess and how your treatment may need to be modified. Your first visit will be 60 minutes so the RMT can asses your condition, formulate a plan and then provide massage treatment. Any follow up treatment can be 30, 45 or 60 minutes, depending on your needs and can be discussed with your therapist.
EXTENDED HEALTH BENEFITS COVERAGE
Massage therapy may be covered under your Extended Health Care Benefits. Check to see if your insurance company requires a referral from a doctor. We will provide you with a receipt to submit for reimbursement from your insurance provider.
