Kentucky legislature passed HB 8 which will go into effect January 1, 2023. This bill forces us to charge tax on Massage Therapy services unless they are "medically necessary." You can ask your healthcare provider (Primary Care Provider, Chiropractor, Psychiatrist, etc) to give you a prescription for massage therapy but make sure they list a date range for the prescription.
What is Egoscue? It is an exercise method that restores balance in your body. So many of you have asked for ways to keep your body balanced daily. Well, this is it!! Before you do this daily 5 minute routine, just stand, feet shoulder-width apart, close your eyes and feel where your weight rests in your feet. Is it on the balls of your feet or your heels? Is it evenly distributed between each side? Notice any areas of pain in the body. Then do the exercise routine and then see where your weight is and if you have pain. Enjoy the results!! If you still have pain, schedule an orthopedic massage.
We understand that there is typically some anxiety that comes with getting your first massage. You have unanswered questions that you may be afraid to ask so we will answer some of them here.
You will be required to complete an intake form to give your therapist enough background medical information to ensure that you may safely receive a massage. You will then be led to the treatment room and you and your therapist will discuss your symptoms and the treatment that will best serve your needs. The therapist will explain how to position yourself on the table and will leave the room while you undress to your comfort level and position yourself on the table under the linens and blanket. You are always covered so some choose to completely undress while others choose to wear underwear. Only the area being worked on will be undraped at any given time. The therapist will knock before they re-enter the room and will ensure you are comfortable. You may sleep if you choose. You will not miss the benefits of the massage if you sleep and we don't mind if you snore. For most people, it is the best sleep they may have had in a while. The therapist will let you know if you need to turn to a different position and will wake you before they leave the room. We suggest you get up slowly as some may be slightly dizzy. You may also stretch before you leave the room. You may need to use the restroom as massage helps release toxins. Your therapist will then answer any questions and discuss further treatment options, schedule future appointments if desired and receive payment. Some clients choose to tip their therapist but we prefer that you do not. We consider massage healthcare and you wouldn't tip your other healthcare providers.
Massage Therapy is a form of healthcare. Muscles pull bones. When your muscles are out of balance, your skeleton is out of balance, causing joint and body pain that adversely affects your life. We focus on the problem that causes the pain, not just the symptoms.
Our therapists listen to you to gain an understanding of your specific issues and how they are affecting your daily life so that they can design the most effective treatment plan.
Our therapists are licensed and experienced in Massage therapy to better assess and treat musculature dysfunction to get you back in the game of life.
The goal of Swedish Massage is to melt away muscle tension and increase the blood flow to your heart. Swedish Massage is extremely beneficial as it decreases muscle toxins, increases oxygen levels in the blood, reduces stress and improves flexibility in the body.
Orthopedic Massage addresses specific joint and muscle pain and conditions. Plantar fasciitis, knee pain, hip/low back pain, sciatica, shoulder impingement, frozen shoulder, neck pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome and elbow pain to name a few. This is a pain-free treatment and clients are dressed so please bring or wear shorts for lower body treatment and/or sports bra or tank top for upper body treatment. This is not a preventative treatment and clients typically only require one treatment with an occasional follow-up appointment.
