Insurance & Massage Therapy.
Massage for wellness, therapeutic and clinical can treat a variety of ailments including:
- Frozen Shoulder

- Iliotibial band contracture (IT Band)
- Piriformis Syndrome

- Hypertension and other ailments

- We help with Workers' Compensation Cases
In addition to the benefits of massage, many people may not know that their insurance could actually cover the treatment if it is determined to be ‘medically necessary’ by a doctor, a chiropractor, or a physical therapist.
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 be beneficial to their overall treatment plan. Your doctor can write a ‘massage prescription’ or you can download a physician referral/prescription form on my website in the "PDF Forms" section and can be printed out for your doctor.
