General FAQ

      Do you accept insurance?

 

No, we do not bill 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.

      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.  I often do an assessment and reset neurological firing to tight muscles 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?  

 

Most therapy sessions are approximately 90 minutes.  Some clients do schedule for two hours.  We do offer one-hour appointments for medically frail, pediatrics, and follow-up visits for minor issues.  Therapy time includes consultation, assessment, undressing, re-dressing, and checkout/rescheduling. 

      How much do you charge? 

 

Most non surgery related therapy sessions are $160 for approximately 90 minutes with the therapist. Pricing varies based on the service and session length.  Please view each therapy to see the pricing.  

      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.
