Is there any coverage to help me pay for treatments? 
Massage Therapy is usually covered by extended health care, there may be a cap (only a certain amount you can claim per year), and the coverage is usually a certain percentage of fee. Please contact your service provider for information on your coverage.

MSP can also be claimed for Massage Therapy using form # HLTH2944. Rebate is $23 per massage treatment. You would pay for the massage and then mail in a form for rebate.

Most Veterans receive up to 15 visits  a year with a cap of $110 per treatment toward Massage Therapy. Requests can be made for more treatments, or for coverage on increased hourly price due to need for mobile Massage Therapy by therapist. Please call Veterans Affairs with your K# to check what coverage you may have. The therapist bills Veterans Affairs so you do not have to pay for your visit within allowed coverage.

If you are involved in an accident ICBC has recently changed policy and you would be able to receive some treatments immediately without approval, and continued treatments with approval. ICBC pays under the normal amount for RMT fees so your treatments would be limited to 40 minutes a session or you can opt to pay the difference of $20 for a one hour treatment. 


Do I need a doctors referral?
Generally no referral is needed for any Therapy. A doctor's referral is required if a client is severely ill, has contraindications to Therapy, or is a palliative patient. Please feel free to call if you have questions regarding contraindications, or doctors referrals.

Some insurance providers may want a doctor's note for Massage Therapy treatments, please check with your extended health care provider. 
If you have a claim through WCB please check in with your case worker regarding doctors notes and approved treatments. Veterans will need a doctors note.


Do you bring supplies with you when you treat on site?
Yes! The only things you may need are pillows and a blanket. 


Will you come to the hospital or treat someone in a long term care facility?
No, this service has been suspended due to the pandemic 


Do you treat people in wheelchairs or hospital beds? Yes


If I am coming to your location where do I park?
You can park anywhere. Please be slow going up drive as there is wildlife including my free range, well behaved dog. Thanks.
