General FAQ

      Do you accept insurance?


No, we do not bill health insurance.  Medial massage and osteopathic manual therapy are usually billed under manual therapy codes, and it may be possible for you to receive reimbursement from your insurance provider if you have met your in-network and out-of-network deductibles.  We have a form to walk you through calling your insurance provider on our Forms page.  It is your responsibility to find out your eligibility and and file for re-imbursement. 


We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, FSA, and HSA cards. We do not accept American Express.  Payment in full is required at time of scheduling for all clients, and it is non-refundable.  For a full list of our policies, please visit our Policies Page.

      What should I wear?


Most people just come in their clothes from work.  Ideally, a t-shirt and shorts or stretchy pants are best for orthopedic work.  Often assessment and resetting of neurological firing to tight muscles are performed before a client undresses.  


Some therapies such as Neural Reset Therapy, Brain Therapy, and Visceral Manipulation, do not require a client to undress at all.  Other therapies such as Medicupping and Lymphatic Drainage do require direct contact with skin.  


We ask that all clients be clean and free of strong odors, including perfume or smoke, out of respect for the therapist and other clients.   

      How long does a session take?  

 AMT is different.  Sessions are results oriented, and not time based.  This is very similar to going for a haircut and color.  You go for a result, not necessarily a time.  So you can plan, most therapy sessions are approximately 90 minutes in total.  Some sessions may be longer or shorter as needed to relieve your pain or acheive your results. 

Not sure if you're ready to schedule and need to talk?  We offer a Wellness Consultation over the phone which takes about 20-30 minutes.

      How much do you charge? 


Therapy sessions start at $235 for new clients and are approximately 90 minutes for the first visit. Some sessions may be longer or shorter as needed.  Please view the Manual Therapies, BioMat Therapy, and Heart Centered Therapy pages to learn more. 


Not sure if you're ready to schedule and need to talk?  We offer a 20-30 minute Wellness Consultation over the phone for $50.  

      Where are you located?


Advanced Massage Therapies is located at 306 Bankhead Hwy. at the intersection with Cedar St. We have a copper colored roof which helps many people identify us.  

      Does therapy hurt?


No.  Many people think that therapeutic work is painful.  Actually, if it is painful, it is not nearly as effective as working with the body so that the nervous system does not guard or brace against the pressure.  Our therapist is trained in many gentle yet highly effective modalities to help you get great results without pain.  We believe in using maximum precision and minimal force.
