Services are rendered based upon a'sliding scale' fee.
 
Sliding scale means that you decide how much to pay within the range provided based upon your appreciation and your ability to pay.  For your session, there is a range that you can pay.

Why ''Sliding Scale''?

'Sliding Scale' means that you decide what amount to pay within the range that is offered.  Why?   
 
Some clients are in a position to compensate based upon the average rate for services of this high caliber.
Some clients  need this high caliber of service, yet are constrained financially by factors of health or life situation.
 
Consequently, I price my services so that it is in reach of more people.

Insurance: Auto Accidents
 
 
Billing for Auto Insurance accidents is available based upon a review of the case.
Many Insurance companies allow you to visit a massage therapist after an auto accident without a referal from a Physician or chiropractor.   It is common for a physician or chiropractor to prescribe massage to ease the pain associated with an auto accident.  Insurance companies routinely cover this.
 
 
Insurance: Medical, Health
 
 
As a general principle, I do not bill health insurance companies for payment.  Please discuss your situation with me.
 
Some high end Insurance program cover massage in their service.
Check if your insurance provider covers massage.    Do this prior to your first appointment.
 
Some insurance will cover part of the fees for my services but not all of my fees, as I do advance massage and bodywork.  You may,  therefore have part of your session covered by insurance, and then be responsible for additional payments directly to me. 
 
Payment is required at time of service.
 
Sometimes it is necessary to get a prescription for massage for your physican or chiropractor before your insurance will cover the massage.

I will provide you a receipt for the massage that you can submit to your  insurance provider, if necessary.

Please discuss your situation with me.
