Therapeutic massage is an important part of your health maintenance plan by reducing or eliminating pain, improving joint mobility, improving circulation, improving immune system functioning, increasing lymphatic drainage, reducing depression and anxiety, reducing tension within muscles, and increasing body awareness.

Your first Massage Therapy visit

During your first visit to St. Catharines Chiropractic & Health Centre, you will complete a confidential health history as part of your assessment. This is important since the massage therapist needs to know if you have any medical conditions or are taking any medications. The massage therapist will listen to your concerns, assess your individual needs as well as other factors that may be contributing to your injury (lifestyle, nutritional status, etc.). The massage therapist will then develop a treatment plan with you to ensure you receive appropriate treatment that will help you return, as much as possible, to your normal activities.

Most progressive extended health insurance plans cover massage therapy treatments when provided by a registered massage therapist. Most do not require a physician’s order for treatments, although a few may still have this requirement. Most plans require that the covered individual pay for the treatment and submit the expense for reimbursement. At St. Catharines Chiropractic & Health Centre we will do whatever we can to help you determine from your extended health insurance plan what you coverage is for massage therapy.
