Commonly Asked Questions
Q: Does My Insurance Cover Massage?
A: In NH, massage therapists are NOT considered health care providers and CANNOT bill insurance companies for massage treatments. However, if you have a flex spend or health savings account you can use those funds to cover your treatments. You will automatically receive a receipt via email so that you can submit it to the insurance company.
Q: What Should I Bring?
A: Most patients usually don't bring anything extra with them to their session. If you feel more comfortable bringing gym wear (i.e. shorts, sports bra for women) rather than undressing, that is perfectly fine. If you are coming in for a specific reason, whether it's to help rehab an injury or per your doctor's recommendation, please feel free to bring any documentation, reports etc. This can definitely help me in determining the best course of treatment for you and give me a better understanding of the underlying problem.
Q: How Often Should I Come?
A: This depends on what you are coming in for. For the best, long term results, it is recommended in the beginning to come in weekly for the first 3-4 sessions. The persistent aches and pains you experience have been around for a while and unfortunately one massage treatment will not "fix" the problem. However, with regular bodywork, changes can and do occur to positively correct muscle imbalances and decrease pain. Once we start to notice these positive changes taking place, it will then be appropriate to curve back the sessions to every other week with the goal of coming in once a month for maintenance work.
Q: Is There Anything I Can Do at Home?
A: Of course! What makes my massage treatments unique is that I give you work to do in between sessions to better enhance the affects of the treatments. These will include: stretches, strengthening exercises and postural restoration exercises. All of these will greatly improve muscle imbalances in the body and decrease overall pain and discomfort.
