Motor Vehicle Accidents
First of all, auto accidents are zero fun. I’m sorry it happened and I’d like to help you feel better as soon as possible; the quicker you pursue treatment, the more beneficial for you in the long run.
The state of Oregon attaches Personal Injury Protection (PIP) to every auto insurance policy, so that you can seek medical attention without Claims administration getting in the way of your recovery. It is your legal right to choose which practitioners will help you recover.
You need the following information before your appointment so I can file your paperwork correctly:
- Insurance company name and fax number
- Your adjustor’s name and phone number
- MVA/PIP claim number
- Prescription/referral for massage therapy from your primary care medical doctor, naturopath, or chiropractor
That’s it! From here, all you need to do is show up and I’ll take care of the rest.
Massage isn't a luxury, it's a necessity.
Any massage is better than no massage; done correctly by a licensed professional, they all embody healing properties that begin with increased circulation. For advanced health benefits, you can choose to add tools from oils to cups.
- Deep tissue massage has a slower pace that stimulates deeper into your muscles. You’ll experience benefits right away, from looser muscles to increased mobility.
- Swedish massage is ideal for relaxation and effective for pain management.
During pregnancy, your body is shifting and changing to make room for baby (or babies!). As a Doula, this massage is part of the package I offer.
Otherwise, you are welcome to come in for some relaxation and ease from the discomfort of pregnancy. A relaxed and happy mama is a relaxed and happy family.
The purpose of this treatment is to cleanse the body and aid in detoxification. Every organ, muscle and bone of the body will be stimulated by the use of therapeutic-grade essential oils. The immune system is enhanced, the body is brought into electrical/structural balance and toxins are released – including those caught in your mind and emotions.
The experience is related as improved comfort, relaxation and rejuvenation.
Cupping is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and dates back to the early fourth century. It is helpful in treating respiratory conditions and also provides relief from muscle and joint pain.
Glass cups are placed on the skin, using a flame to draw out the oxygen, with a vacuum effect to anchor the cup to the skin. This causes blood to be drawn up, increasing circulation and providing essential oxygen to the local tissue. Cups are available for use during any massage treatment.
When receiving any type of bodywork, it is essential to keep hydrated. This is why many bodywork practices have water available before and after therapy. Your body responds best with sufficient water circulating your system. A good rule of thumb is to drink half your body weight in water each day; a 180-pound person should drink 90 oz to maintain good hydration.
