FAQS

What makes your approach to treatment different?

I have more than one way and set of treatment techniques to treat you.

I have four treatment approaches that are gentle, non-invasive and non-aggressive that require you to only wear loose fitting clothing to be treated. They are Matrix Manual Therapy, Matrix Repatterning Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy and Myofascial Release Therapy.

These approaches may be used for both chronic pain and rehabilitation.

I do treat with lotion for relaxation, pregnancy and deep tissue massage.

Are Athletic Therapy and Massage Therapy covered in My Benefits Plan?

More and more companies are recognizing the value of Athletic Therapy and have it a part of their benefits plan. I would suggest, just like Massage Therapy that you check your policy.

Do I need a doctor’s note to get covered for treatment?

Maybe. It depends on your insurance company’s policy. Some insurance companies do request it.  It’s good to make sure before your initial appointment.

What do I wear for the treatment?

Some of the services that I provide do not require you to undress. It’s best to come to your appointment wearing comfortable, loose fitting or stretchy clothing as this will improve the effectiveness of my assessment and treatment.

***If you are coming for pregnancy, relaxation and deep tissue massage with lotion you may undress to your comfort level. You will be draped appropriately and only the areas worked on will be exposed. ***

What Can I Expect On My First Appointment?

On your first appointment you will need to fill out a health history form. It is advised that you show up 15 minutes ahead of time to do this

Next, I will go over this with you and put you through an assessment. Once the assessment is complete we discuss your treatment plan. This gives you an opportunity to ask questions.

Before I treat you, I go through a verbal informed consent in which I propose the treatment for you. This empowers you to make choices on the treatment.

How long will it take for me to feel better?

The answer to this question depends on your injury history as well as any current irritating factors that exist in your diet and lifestyle. When people come in for Therapy I encourage them to commit to 3-4 treatments. Within these first few treatments you will know if the therapy is working for you and if you want to pursue it further.
