Frequently Asked Questions

Will my insurance pay for bodywork?

Most major health insurers won't pay for the work outright but there are some exceptions: if you have a Flex Plan you will be reimbursed, the Bureau of Workers Compensation (BWC) will pay for treatment in the case of a work related injury; also, if you are a victim of an auto accident, the "at fault" driver's Auto Insurance will pay for your treatments and, in the case of some slip and fall type of injuries the liabiltiy insurance of the "at fault" party wil pay for treatment

Do I have to get undressed for a bodywork session?

It depends on the particular type of therapy being used for your treatment.  Some types of therapy can be done fully clothed but, others may require you to partially disrobe.  However, if it is required that you disrobe, you will be properly covered while on the treatment table while the therapist reaches under the covers to access the area to be to be treated.  You will not be exposed or embarrassed in any way.

 Will it hurt?

No, the work is actually quite gentle.  Sometimes you may notice some slight discomfort for the first 24 hours after your first session as the tissues readjust to the changes that were made during treatment but, normally the experience is a pleasant one with no side effects.

How soon will I notice results?

Most people notice results with the first session.  However, depending on the severity of the problem and the length of time you have been suffering; it may take a few sessions before you start noticing permanent positive results
