Q. Should I get a massage if I am ill?
A: Massage is not recomened for people who have a fever, flu or have a UTI, (Urinary Tract Infection). IF you are not feeling well and have a massage scheduled please call as soon as possible to ask if massage would be indicated as something that might help, or make you worse. If you are at the end of a cold, or sinus infection, a massage can help your body in healing. However in cases of UTI or a fever, or the flu, a massage would not help you!
Q. What if I need to cancel my massage?
A. Please let me know as soon as possible if you need to cancle. My policy is a 24 hour notice. I undersand that weather in Nebraska, and illnesses do come on sudden, and allow some leway for these two.
If 24 hours notice is not given, or if you fail to show for your appoitment without notice, you will still owe for your time.
Why 24 hour notice? This gives me time to find someone to fill your spot in my schedule. I currently have more people wanting in, than I can possibly schedule. IF I don't have my appoitments filled, then I do not make any money!!
Q. How often should I get a massage?
A: Listen to your body. It will always tell you when it's time to come back for the next massage. Some people find that once a month works best, others like one every two weeks. Still others find that every three weeks is the best. Whatever you decide, is right. Laura will work with you to find the right pattern that works with your individual situation.
Q: Does my Health Insurance cover massage?
A: Check your policy to see if massage is covered. Some plans allow for so many massages per year. If your plan does not cover massages, you can still use a medical re-imburment account such as a HSA to cover the cost of your massage.
IF your insurance covers massage, ask for a recipet for your appointment, to submit to your insurance compay.
Q: How shall I prepare for my massage? And what should I do after the massage?
A: At home, a nice warm shower or a bath to help start your body relaxing. Once you arrive for you massage, quick trip to the bathroom just before getting on the table is recommended.
After the massage soak in a bath of epsom salts or baking soda. This will help your body remove the junk that has been flushed out of your muscles.
Avoid drinking alcohol, and any stressful activities.
It's also good to stretch your muscles as often as you can, before and after sleeping as well.
