Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept health plans or coverage?
We submit to most major health insurance plans. Contact me to see if you're covered.
How will I feel after a Massage?
Most people feel relaxed and free from pain after massage. After initially feeling slowed down, people often experience an increase in energy. It is very important to drink water after a massage and whenever possible, have a hot Epsom salt bath. If you do have pain it is normal and should clear up within 24 hours. If pain persists beyond a day, call your massage therapist because it is a sign something new is presenting and should be addressed.
Do I need a doctor’s note?
Massage is no longer covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Program (OHIP), so you don’t need a referral if you are paying out of pocket. If you have additional insurance, your carrier might need proof of a doctor’s note. Your massage therapist will provide you with a receipt with a registration number that your insurance carrier will need.
Can I have a massage if I’m sick?
Generally the short answer is yes, you can have a massage when you are sick, but one of two things may happen: due to the increase of circulation, your symptoms may worsen for a short time but your recovery will be faster, or there may be no change at all.
