In my own practice I have witnessed it's positive effects on others and I look forward to working with you and am excited to accept new patients.

What To Expect On Your First Visit

It's best for you to arrive a few minutes before your first treatment to fill out a case history form. We recommend that you book a one-hour appointment to allow time for a full health history review, which may include some range-of-motion, muscle or joint testing.

Any information you provide your massage therapist is completely confidential and protected under the current Provincial and Federal legislations. Your health record cannot be released or transferred without your written consent.

After treatment, your therapist may propose a customized treatment plan, which can include a remedial home therapy program to aid in your recovery and to help with progression in between treatments.

Who Pays for Massage Therapy?

While the Ontario Health Insurance Program (OHIP) does not cover Massage Therapy, there are ways you can receive help with funding your treatments. Many private insurance companies provide full or partial coverage under extended health care plans. Please consult your plan for coverage details. Massage Therapy is also a valid and tax deductible medical expense.
