Most services are not covered in our experience. Our professional associations are working hard to correct this. That said some of the extended health care plans cover Natural/Natruo Therapy Appointments which may cover you. Check with your insurance policy for details but typically policies have percentage coverage up to a dollar amount (eg. 80% coverage up to $500 per calendar year). A prescription from your MD may override policies limits so check on that possibility as well.
Your appointment time and fee is the actual ‘hands-on’ time. All assessment & evaluation, client education, and administration, time is free so expect to be in the clinic an additional 15-20min. Consider this a value add.
No, but you will require a doctor’s referral if required by your extended medical insurance policy. Otherwise, no you do not need a referral, but if your doctor has given you a referral, we would appreciate having a copy of it on file.
Only if applies to you- a doctor’s referral (see previous question for requirements), any other important medical documents you would like us to be aware of.
You will be asked to fill out a confidential health history form before your first treatment. If you would like, you can view it online here, print and fill it out, and bring the form with you to the appointment.
Gift Certificates are available and are a great way to treat someone special to the gift of Health
At Naturally Well, we use a whole body treatment approach called Myofascial Release as one of our primary therapies. For this to work effectively we need to be able to have skin to skin contact as much as is possible and appropriate. This is a whole body approach and so even if your pain seems to be located in a very specific location we may be assess other parts of your body and fascial system to see if other restrictions are contributing to your pain.
Because MFR requires movement that is not traditional to massage type work, The less a client is wearing but still modest the better. We will need to be able to assess the structures of your body visually and by palpation (touch). Access to as much of the body surface as possible is necessary as the surface of the body is used to manipulate the inner structures. You will always be expertly draped(covered), exposing only what is needed for treatment. Your comfort is paramount.
We respect any special considerations that may arise and encourage you to speak to us if you have any more specific questions or concerns about what to wear to therapy.
Please DO NOT PUT LOTION ON YOUR SKIN prior to your MFR session. We must gently “anchor” into your skin (like sinking into wet sand or clay) without sliding or gliding through lotion.
Should I receive Myofascial Release treatment if I am already receiving another form of treatment such as Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, Traditional massage etc.?
Absolutely, yes. Myofascial Release treatment will not interfere in any way with adjacent therapies. Creating a more favourable environment in the body for change to occur will simply enhance the results of simultaneous treatment modalities.
