Massage for wellness, therapeutic and clinical, can treat a variety of ailments, including:

  • Migraines

  • Abdominal Constipation
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Iliotibial band contracture (IT Band)

  • Decrease recovery time after a car accident
  • We help with Workers' Compensation Cases 

In addition to the benefits of massage, many people may not know that their insurance could cover the treatment if the doctor determines it as "medically necessary"; it can be a chiropractor or PCP.

Under Obamacare, section 2706 states that licensed massage therapy can be covered by medical insurance.

We suggest that people ask their doctor if massage therapy could benefit their overall treatment plan. For example, your doctor can write a 'massage prescription,' or you can download a physician referral/prescription form on my website in the "PDF Forms" section, which can be printed out for your doctor. 

Our office accepts the following:

  1. Cigna
  2. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oregon.
  3. United Health Care
  4. Aetna Life Insurance Company (PPO; Network Access Benefit Plan) 
  5. Providence Health Plan ( EPO, Preferred PPO; Network Access Benefit Plan.
  6. PacificSource - Voyager
  7. PacificSource - Navigator
  8. Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA)
  9. Workers' Compensation cases (W/C)
  10. Kaiser self-referral 
  11. Kaiser (W/C) cases.

We continue to accept other medical panels and will update our site on any additional medical insurance panels.

Please note that all policies are different, and we need to call to ensure your policy will cover our services!
