Tips to Saving Money

Here are a few tips to saving you money on massage therapy:

  1. Ask your doctor or chiropractor for a prescription. There are many reasons a massage may be medically necessary including, but not limited to, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, anxiety/depression, nervous disorders, IBS, other digestive disorders, and overall stress management.

  2. Use your FSA/HSA. As a medical facility, we are able to accept these methods of payment. (We do not accept insurance at this time, however.) You can also purchase packages of massages so you do not lose your money at the end of the year. We will provide you with a receipt for your records.
