Yes. Most extended health plans include coverage for massage therapy treatments. Please contact your insurance company for details of your available coverage.
If you have coverage for massage therapy with Greenshield we can bill them directly. To do this, we require some information from you about your policy. Please notify us if you are interested in having us bill Greenshield directly so that we can have this arranged for you.
Other insurance companies (Manulife, Sunlife) only issue reimbursement cheques to the client – therefore, for these companies, we cannot do direct billing.
Janis provides Swedish massage techniques. Swedish massage is the most well known type of massage available, and involves the application of gentle but firm pressure to decrease tension and pain, improve circulation, and improve mobility and function. She uses her hands to stretch, lift, knead, and compress muscles and connective tissues. Treatments are individualized to each client – some people prefer a gentle approach, while others prefer deep tissue therapy – Janis is able to accommodate different preferences.
Massage therapy never has to hurt. Sometimes discomfort is felt over areas that are already tense and sore but the amount of pressure used by the therapist can always be adjusted to a comfortable level for you.
