If you have “Out-of-Network” coverage, we will still be able to bill these insurances—you just need to call us to discuss your coverage.

Our office would be happy to provide a complimentary benefits check to see if your insurance provider is accepted and the level of your physical therapy coverage.

You are also welcome to pay out of pocket for your massage therapy sessions.
