Clinical massage therapy has proven to be an important component of health care and a valuable compliment to chiropractic treatment. We are pleased to make this available in our clinic.

Though relaxation may certainly be a part of your experience, the goal of clinical massage therapy is different than a relaxation massage that you may experience in a spa. Through techniques such as deep tissue massage, trigger point work, myofascial release, and stretching, clinical therapy is intended to rehabilitate, reduce stress and strain, and improve function.

Massage may be effective in treating a variety of muscle, joint, and pain complaints including repetitive stress injuries (carpal tunnel), neck and back tension, headache, jaw pain, shoulder and hip pain, and sciatica.

We currently have three massage therapists on staff. Our therapists are certified, experienced, and collaborate with the doctors to ensure they are providing the most appropriate and effective care.

Appointments are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday - Friday.

Fees

Please call for more information.


Payment for massage therapy is expected at time of service, including co-pays, coinsurance, and deductible.


Note: Massage therapy is billed with CPT codes 97124 or 97140 in 15 minute units. A 60 minute massage will appear as 4 units on insurance claims.

Insurance
Our massage therapists are contracted with many major insurance companies. For example:

  • Cigna
  • First Choice
  • Lifewise Health Plan
  • Premera Blue Cross
  • UnitedHealthcare

Massage therapists are not credentialed with Medicare or Medicaid. Medicare does not cover massage therapy treatment.

Please check the requirements of your insurance benefits policy to determine what your massage benefits are. We require a referral for all patients billing insurance. Although our providers may be contracted, that does not necessarily mean your policy covers massage therapy benefits.

Massage therapy is also available for personal injury and worker's compensation (L&I) claims.

Forms
New patients will need to complete the following paperwork before their first visit. You may print these forms, complete, and bring with you to your first massage therapy appointment.
