  • What is required for Medical or PIP/L&I Massages?
    When contacting your insurance company regarding potential reimbursement, consider the following information: · Inquire if your insurance plan covers massage therapy reimbursement for both in-network and out-of-network services. · Many insurance providers offer online processing with a quick turnaround time, typically less than a week. However, this process can vary significantly between companies. *Should your insurance company reimburse massage treatments: · Request a general massage therapy prescription from your doctor, which includes a diagnosis code (this is different from a referral to a specific provider). It should be obtained directly from your doctor, who can fax it to us at 425.437.5886, or you may upload it with your massage request form. If we are in-network, we will bill your insurance directly. If we are out-of-network, we will provide a super bill indicating you have paid for your treatment, including our business name, tax ID, address, your name, the service provided, the CPT code for massage (97124), and the diagnosis code. For in-network clients, copay or co-insurance is required at the time of service. For out-of-network clients, full payment is due at the time of service. We also accept FSA and HSA payments. If you have any questions, please reach out. We are eager to assist you.
  • Where will my massage session take place?
    Your massage will take place in a comfortable, quiet room where you will lie on a table specifically designed for your comfort. You may ask for the table to be warmed and soft music may be played to help you relax.
  • Must I completely undress?
    You should undress to your comfort level. Traditionally massage sessions are performed with the client unclothed, however, it's completely up to you. You will be properly draped during the entire session to perserve modesty.
  • Will the therapist be present when I disrobe?
    The massage therapist will step out of the room while you undress allowing you time to get comfortable on the table under the sheets and blanket. They will knock to check that you are ready before returning to the room.
  • Will I be covered during the massage session?
    You will be properly draped at all times both to keep you warm and comfortable. The therapist will adjust the coverings to expose the area on which they are working.
  • What parts of my body will be massaged?
    Typically a full-body massage will include working on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck and shoulders. If you have an area you would like to have excluded during your session, please let your therapist know ahead of time.
  • What will a massage feel like?
    Swedish massage is the standard or baseline for most clients. In Swedish massage, you will feel broad flowing strokes to help calm your nervous system down and relax the exterior muscle tension in your body. As your body becomes more relaxed, pressure will be gradually increased to work on specific areas identified by the therapist. Often the therapist will use a light oil or lotion to reduce friction caused by the massage. Oils and lotions also help hydrate the skin. If for any reason you feel discomfort during the session, please communicate with your therapist so that another method or approach may be taken. If you have allergies, please notify your therapist before starting your session.
  • How should I feel after recieving my massage?
    Most people feel very relaxed after a session. Some may experience less tension or freedom from long-term aches and pains. Most will also feel energized with greater awareness and less stress allowing them to be more productive which can last for days.
  • How often should I get a massage?
    If you feel it's time for a massage, you are long overdue. Most of us should incorporate massage into our self-care regimen. If you are rehabilitating from an injury or surgical procedure, you should probably get massage often. Some may choose to get massage once a month, whereas others may choose to get massages weekly. There is no right answer, however, listen to your body and schedule a massage before you feel it's time. Your body will thank you later.
  • What should I tell my therapist when I come in?
    It is important that you should notify your therapist if you have changes in your health, such as a new injury or health issue. Also, please let them know if you are taking new medications. If you are currently under a doctor's care, it's advisable to receive a written recommendation for massage from your practitioner. Depending on the condition, you would need approval to get a massage.
