Massage Coverage when Injured on the Job

INSURANCE CLAIMS

Did you know our clinic is registered with WSIB as providers of care? This means that, should you have suffered a soft tissue injury at work, we can provide you with massage therapy services to assist you in your recovery. WSIB has developed, along with the assistance of many Regulated Health Professionals, including the Registered Massage Therapists’ Association of Ontario, several Programs of Care designed to help with this type of injury.

Our Clinic is also registered with the HCAI (Health Claims for Auto Insurance), so should you have been involved a motor vehicle accident (MVA), we can bill your Insurance Company, saving you the inconvenience of having to pay us on each visit and then wait to be reimbursed.

At Touch Works London we recognize that being injured can cause great anxiety and fear, particularly when it interferes with your ability to not only participate in your usual activities, but also the tasks required of you at work. It is our goal to always do our best to provide you with the support, education and quality massage therapy care required for your recovery. We also know that the process of making a claim to either WSIB or your Insurance Company can seem daunting and at times confusing, so we hope with the information we provide that we can make that easier for you.

CLINIC NEWS

Vacation: I will be away from the office from July 30th until August 20th. During this time, for those of you who normally see me, know Linda or Heather will take great care of you should you be in need of a massage.

Discounts: During the next few months we are offering all new clients a 15% off their initial visit. Should you have made a referral to us we shall extend this discount to your next massage as a way to say thank you for your trust and confidence in our clinic.

Please note that right now my practice is full and so I am not able to accept any new clients. This saddens me as I so enjoy meeting and working with family, friends and colleagues of my clients; however I am happy knowing that they will be in good hands when they book in with either Linda or Heather.

UPDATES

I have introduced Cupping Massage into my practice with some great results. This ancient art originated in China and was used often in Western medicine until sometime in the 20th century. It involves placing a glass or plastic jar on the skin and creating a vacuum by removing the air. The underlying tissue is raised, or sucked, partway into the cup. One way to think about cupping is that it is the inverse of massage, rather than applying pressure to muscles, the suction uses pressure to pull skin, tissue and muscles upward. This modality allows for a unique approach to the fascia and body fluids and can be used to affect the deeper tissues, remove facial restrictions and increase range of motion, with little stress on the therapists’ hands. For those of you who would like to know more about the uses and benefits of cupping check out the link below.
