What is Remedial Massage Therapy?
Great question! Remedial Massage Therapy is a combination of assessments, manual manipulations, therapeutic exercise and self care strategies to rehabilitate from injury, old scar tissue, postural deviations and chronic pain.
Do I need anything in preparation for my treatment?
Water, water, water! Please ensure that you are adequately hydrate, at least 12 ounces of water 1 hour prior to your treatment as massage therapy has similar physiological effects as a workout! Wear clothing that is loose and that you will be comfortable enough to move around in for assessment and therapeutic exercises. If it’s your first time booking, please be sure to arrive 10 minutes early to complete a health history intake form and to go over informed consent as well as any other questions you may have.
Are sessions covered insurance?
Yes!! You will be given an official receipt for your treatment that you can submit for reimbursement. Direct billing with several insurance providers will be offered by the end of July! The exception for coverage is if you are seeking therapy that is the result of a car accident or work related injury and your sessions are being covered by SGI or WCBI, these sessions are to be scheduled with an MTAS registered therapist. If you would like a recommendation I would happy to make a referral.
How do I pay you?
Current methods of payment accepted are cash, cheque and email money transfer. Direct billing will be offered shortly for those that this applies too!
I have to cancel or reschedule, what is your policy?
That okay! The online scheduler will allow you to cancel or reschedule any appointments up to 24 hours prior to session. Less than 24 hours notice or a missed appointment will result in being charged a fee amounting to the cost of your scheduled treatment. Of course I understand that life happens and events take place that can prevent us from making our scheduled appointments and so if this is an emergency and less than 24 hours, please call me at 306-715-1797, some exceptions apply.
Where are you located and do you have access for those with disabilities?
The treatment space is located inside of Pura Vida Yoga Loft on the 2nd floor of 117 20th Street West. There is no elevator and therefor no wheelchair or disability access. If you require a treatment and have a condition that prevents you from accessing the space, please email me at KellySwanYogaRMT!Gmail.com and I would be happy to make arrangements that would accommodate your needs.
Where do I park?
There is public parking available on street at $2/hour between 9am-6pm Monday-Saturday, free on Sundays, evenings and holidays. There are also several other paid parking lots in the neighborhood that vary from $1-$2/hour.. Avenue D and beyond as well as 21st Street are walking distance and have 2 hour free parking. City transit stops in front of our building, check your local route for your times and options. Bikes can either be locked outside or brought inside.
