Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect when I go for a massage therapy appointment?
On your first visit you will fill out a confidential health history form. Your therapist will go over your health history form with you to determine treatments needs and goals.
Do provincial health care programs cover Massage Therapy?
OHIP does not cover Massage Therapy but many extended health care insurance insurance programs offer full or partial coverage.
Does Massage Therapy hurt?
Some massage manipulations may cause discomfort. The Massage Therapist will ask you how the pressure is throughout the massage to ensure they are working within your comfort level.
Must I undress for my Massage?
Your comfort level is important to us. Massage Therapists are required to cover/drape you with a sheet exposing only the area being worked on. You only remove clothing that is within your comfort level.
Am I expected to talk during my Massage?
We try to respond and not initiate conversation during treatment. Some clients prefer a silent massage while others prefer to talk. The therapist may, however, require verbal information pertinent to health findings during the treatment.
After my appointment, is there anything specific I should do?
An epsom salt bath or Soothing Sea Kelp Soak
(from Seaflora) is recommended to soothe and calm muscles. Drink plenty of water to keep tissues hydrated.
