We hope this page helps to answer any questions you have about massage therapy & related treatments.
Going into 2021, we are allowed to remain OPEN. Please read our guidelines carefully and follow closely, so that we can ensure the safety of the therapists and the clients of Savannah Massage Therapy and Wellness Clinic.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to direct bill to your private insurance company, if you are currently working with WSIB and have an open claim. You can however, pay privately for a treatment if you wish, this treatment WILL NOT be covered if you submit to your insurance plan.
Yes, most insurance policies will cover all, if not some of your massage appointment. I advise that you check with your insurance company what your plan covers, as your RMT will not have access to this information.
No, RMT’s or clinics do not require a doctors note. Although, some insurance companies require you to have a doctors note in order for them to reimburse you.
You are only to undress to your comfort level. Massage Therapy treatments are effective both undressed and clothed, the therapist will work within your comfort level to provide you with the most effective treatment.
The discomfort you may feel following your massage treatment, is referred to DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). This discomfort is comparable to the soreness you may experience post exercise.
A commonly asked question from clients is, how often should I be getting a massage therapy treatment?
Typically this will depend on a few things- your goals, the nature of the injury and treatment plan designed by your RMT.
If we are treating someone with a specific injury, ie: gaining ROM we may need to see you more frequently. This could vary between 1-2 per week, or every week for a few weeks.
For general maintenance treatments, to keep the tension at a minimum and stress levels low, we suggest anywhere between 4-6 weeks between treatments.
OR if you would like to maximize your benefits, while maintaining a wellness routine, we suggest calculating your coverage over the year.
So I would answer: it all depends on the treatment goals and each treatment and client will vary. Speak to your massage therapist at your next visit, if you would like to know how frequently you should be coming in.
You are always able to lay on your side during a treatment, unless your therapist has a chair massage for you to sit in while having a treatment.
All ages. Children under the age of 16, will need a parent/guardian to sign and give consent for treatment. Parents are more then welcome to sit in for the treatment.
We are still open!
REMINDER: Masks need to be worn to your massage appointments, and must be worn throughout your visit to the clinic.
