Lots of things! It helps a variety of things, including but not limited to:
If you're a new client, be sure to fill out new client paperwork via the "Manage My Appointment" link in your confirmation email. Also have something to eat within a few hours of your appointment and bring a pair of shorts and a t-shirt to change into if possible.
Medical Massage is not typically covered by insurance but check with your insurance provider to be sure. If they happen to provide coverage, Laura will not submit to your insurance but, rather, will give you a super bill to submit to your insurance for reimbursement purposes.
Yes, it is!
Acupressure is the method of applying manual pressure to specific acupuncture points on the body in place of the use of needles or as an adjunct to needling.
The training and licensing is different. Medical Massage is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture and therefore is medically based and incorporates acupressure and channel theory into the treatment. Like massage, the practitioner uses his or her hands and arms to help release blocked energies and to relieve pain. However the hand techniques are different as rolling, grasping, kneading, pinching and other methods intrinsic to Tuina ("twee-nah") and TCM are used.
