Individual Sessions

Welcome to my sessions page! I offer a variety of skilled bodywork/ massage . If you have been recently injured, the early stage of injury is a tremendously important time in the recovery process in which much can be done to optimize your return to health. Each session will be tailored to your particular needs. Since every injury is unique, I will spend some time up front listening to you and assessing your condition. If you are coming in for a series of sessions with a specific focus, expect our first session to be weighted towards assessment compared with subsequent ones.

If you are working with a healthcare team and have just been injured, you are most welcome to receive a few sessions to address your swelling. Once resolved or managed sufficiently, many clients will transition to another therapist for subsequent treatment. While I am well versed in orthopedic injury treatment and supporting trauma injuries, it is seeing you progress expediently through the first stage of your injury that I am particularly attached to.

What to Expect

If you have not read it elsewhere, acute injury care is light touch. It needs to be. Expect to settle in to a comfortable, warm table and receive light, repetitive techniques. If we are doing craniosacral therapy or some variation of trauma release, the touch is equally light and will involve supportive holding to ease and release the underlying tension and trauma. Much of this work can be done clothed and we can discuss this beforehand. When managing a specific injury, you are welcome to either wear shorts/ a tank top for access the particular region.

Rates

These vary from each location. Contact Rehabilitation Options of Issaquah for specifics there.

60 minute session – $90
This session is my standard length during the week. If you are seeking care from an injury, an hour session will be plenty to assist your body in getting the swelling down, or supporting it through the early injury phase.

90 minute session – $135
This extended time can further deepen release, and can cover the body more fully. It can be very helpful for releasing deeper traumas from injuries. Often our body is just beginning to ‘settle in’ after an hour, and the subsequent time can offer significant change. Please note that insurance reimburses for 60 minutes/ day only.

Payment

I take cash, checks and credit cards. For the latter, I add on a small percentage for the card fee.

 

First Visit/Forms

I like to keep paperwork to a minimum. Your health history form you will receive electronically from a secure service via email. This you fill out online. There will be a couple additional forms to print and bring in prior to your session. See the ‘Appointments’ page.

Cancellation Policy

I require 24 hours notice for cancellations. There are many people seeking acute injury care. If you cancel inside this window, it can be a lost opportunity for someone in need and potential income loss for me. Please respect this policy.  I charge a $60 cancellation fee.

Health Care Insurance

I am currently a primary provider for the following insurance companies:

  • PIP (personal injury protection for auto related injuries)
  • Labor and Industries

 

PIP

‘PIP’ or ‘Personal Injury Protection’ is medical insurance you add to your auto policy. It provides medical coverage (and more) should you be involved in an accident. It is not required by law, however, your insurance company must offer it to you under Washington State Law. If you have not declined it in writing, the insurance company has to add it to your policy and charge you for it.

Regardless whether you are at fault, the billing of medical bills will go through your insurance company until the claim is closed or your coverage is exhausted.

If you are seeking treatment following an auto injury, contact your insurance company and open a claim. Once open, please bring the following information:

  • Policy Number
  • Claim Number
  • Claim Adjuster Name and Number
  • Address Where to send medical Bills

For more information for the State of Washington, go to http://www.insurance.wa.gov/consumers/auto/PIP.shtml

Knowing how much ‘PIP’ coverage you have can help you manage your own health care and plan between your PIP and personal health insurance should it be needed.

L&I Injuries

If you are injured at work, and your claim is accepted, workers’ compensation (L&I or your self insured employer) pays for medical care directly related to your accident or illness. Please have the following information:

  • Your Claim Number
  • Your Claim Manager’s Name and Number
  • Date of Injury
  • The accepted condition/body part of your work injury

If you have been injured and need the information on the claim process, visit the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I):
