Have you been in a car accident? Get Relief With Massage!
If you have been injured in a car accident your car insurance may pay for massage to aid in your recovery. You have to have PIP coverage.
PIP Insurance: If you have PIP (Personal Injury Protection) you will need a prescription from your treating doctor and you can begin getting relief. Don’t wait. The longer you delay the harder it is to get the muscles to relax and regain your original mobility and pain-free status.
Health Insurance: If you have chronic pain and muscle tension or spasm you may be able to get massage paid for through your health insurance. Check your coverage and get in to see your doctor for a prescription for massage therapy. I’m credentialed with most insurance carriers. ( I am not credentialed with Regence.)

I’ve been a Licensed Massage Practitioner since 1989 and have extensive experience in injury/medical massage. I recently completed advanced training on managing Personal Injury (auto accident) claims efficiently from beginning to end. In combination, this gives me the knowledge and expertise to help you speed your recovery and decrease the time spent suffering with pain.
Massage has gained recognition as a great way to rehabilitate injuries and increase overall health.Massage will enhance the results you will get with medical and chiropractic care.
Here are some of the other benefits you will receive from massage.
Interrupts the pain/spasm cycle found in injured muscles.
Speeds recovery from injury and surgery
Relieves pain and increases mobility
Increase lymphatic circulation to reduce swelling and increase overall health
Reduces stress that is often associated with an injury and chronic pain
Increases circulation and the removal of cell waste and is detoxifying
Helps scars to heal in the direction of soft tissue fibers which results in less scarring and less chance of re-injury
I use various modalities to increase the overall effectiveness based on the needs of the client. Some of these include, hydrotherapy, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, lymphatic drainage, active and passive stretching, isometric resistance/muscle energy, Craniosacral Therapy, and Touch for Health. I am certified in pregnancy and infant massage. I also have a thorough knowledge of how to help clients release trauma that often gets locked into their bodies from injuries, assault, or PTSD with Somatic Emotional Release Technique.
Additionally I have unique massage specialties addressing the needs of people who are recovering from elective, cosmetic surgery such as facelifts or liposuction. There is often edema (swelling) and bruising that can be reduced by lymphatic drainage. The new scar tissue can be influenced to heal in the line of fiber keeping it mobile and less noticeable. In the case of liposuction, there can be residual dimpling, uneven areas, and bruising that can be reduced with this massage technique.
If you are considering facelift surgery, or recovering from facelift surgery you may be a good candidate for and alternative to surgery with the Spa Facelift Massage. If you are considering liposuction, but feel hesitant, you may be a good candidate for Cellulite/Inch Loss Massage.
