Clients are provided with an invoice which can be self-submitted to insurance providers. Please note, reimbursement is not guaranteed and varies based on the individual’s policy, deductibles, and coverage of therapy services. Payments are due in full at time of service and interactions with insurance companies and attempting to receive reimbursement for services are the sole responsibility of the client. Cash, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover are accepted.
If receiving sessions from Joni: most insurance companies require that you have a prescription or referral signed by your doctor to receive reimbursement for physical therapy services. If self-submitting bills for reimbursement, please verify prior to scheduling a session whether or not your insurance company requires a prescription. Otherwise, you may receive up to 8 sessions within 21 days before needing a prescription to receive physical therapy and myofascial release services.
If receiving sessions from Roger: no prescription or doctor’s referral is required to receive myofascial release services.
All sessions are one-on-one with a licensed therapist in a private treatment room. Starting with medical history, followed by evaluation, hands-on treatment is catered to address client’s needs and assessment findings within the first appointment. Session finishes with self-treatment strategies which the client may choose to integrate at home to speed progress.
First session with Joni: Please allow up to 2 hours.
First session with Roger: Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time.
Myofascial release treatment is performed directly on skin. Wear or bring with you a pair of loose-fitting shorts, sports bra, or tank top to ensure most accurate assessment and necessary accessibility for the therapist’s treatment techniques.
The journey of functioning well, resolving pain problems, and restoring fluidity and ease of movement throughout the body varies person to person. Every client presents with a unique history and individualized symptoms such that the required number of sessions are dictated by the client’s needs. Most clients know within the first session whether or not myofascial release treatment is the path that they have been searching for to aid in resolving pain and dysfunction. Due to the length and thoroughness of the initial consultation, some clients experience everything they need within the first session. Others find that a series of sessions is necessary to resolve their issues.
Familiarity with ‘facial’, the skin treatment for the face at a spa, leads many to assume myofascial release is a special release regime only for the face. However, the ‘s’ in ‘myofascial’ makes all the difference and refers to the connective tissue which surrounds and infuses the entirety of our body – head to toe. No oils, creams, or exfoliants, myofascial release is a manual therapy technique applied on dry skin and appropriate for the entire body, far beyond just the face.
Due to pain, trauma, and stress, fascia tightens down following unique 3-dimensional spiraled and webbed patterns. Reaching out like a vine or a snagged run in a woven sweater, restrictions can silently infiltrate other areas of the body that may be symptom-free but contributing to the root cause of the problem. In most cases, it’s essential to explore beyond the pain to multiple areas of the body to uncover hidden causes of the main symptoms in order to experience long-term benefit.
