Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a physician’s referral?
Active Solutions Registered Massage Therapy does not require you to obtain a physician’s referral in order to perform an assessment and begin treatment with us as we run on a fee for service structure. However, if you have an extended health care plan and intend to submit your paid invoice for reimbursement, your benefits policy may require a doctor’s referral note in order to process your claim.
Do I have to remove all my clothing for massage therapy?
No. Client comfort is of the utmost importance to all Registered Massage Therapists, whether that is in the context of the clothing you wear or the treatment you receive. It is the client’s choice as to whether they elect to remove any, some, or all of their clothing. All Registered Massage Therapists are trained in proper draping procedures to ensure that your privacy is completely respected at all times during treatment. (www.rmtao.com)
How long does each treatment session usually last?
The length of a Registered Massage Therapy session varies according to the needs of each individual and is billed accordingly. Active Solutions Registered Massage Therapy offers 45, 60, 75, & 90 minute treatment sessions. Please refer to our listed fee schedule for costs.
Due to the unique nature of our company, we require a minimum booking of 75 minutes for your first session with us, also known as the Initial Assessment. We require time during this session prior to your massage to conduct a confidential health history and obtain your written consent to treatment; physical observations and assessments; as well as site observation and equipment set-up (In-home sessions only).
Prior to the start of treatment the Massage Therapist will describe the treatment to be provided to ensure your comfort with the treatment plan. Your consent will be sought before treatment is provided. If you are uncomfortable, your RMT wants you to let them know immediately, whether that discomfort involves the treatment, draping, or any pain you may experience. If you are uncomfortable with any part of the treatment, you may withdraw your consent at any time and the session will stop. As with many treatments affecting the soft tissue, there are times when massage therapy can cause some light discomfort but is not harmful. A comfort scale will be established and the therapist will work within the client’s tolerance level. After completing the health history, if there are future changes to your health, it is imperative that you update this information with your RMT. (www.rmtao.com)
