Common Questions:

Who provides massage therapy?

Tri City Physiotherapy professionals who provide therapeutic massage therapy are highly trained and registered (certified) with their provincial regulatory bodies.

Do I have to remove all my clothing for massage therapy?

Your privacy is our utmost concern. Strict ethical and privacy guidelines are followed by all Tri City massage therapists. Rest assured that your massage therapist is trained in proper draping procedures and your privacy will be fully respected at all times throughout the treatment.

Does massage therapy hurt?

There may be some slight discomfort which is common in many treatments involving the soft tissue, however this is not harmful or long term. Some people describe it as “hurting so good”. Your therapist will establish a comfort scale and tolerance level during your treatment. Inform your massage therapist if you experience pain or discomfort so that the treatment can be modified to suit your needs.

What do massage therapists do when they treat a patient?

The massage therapist will take your medical history, discuss your symptoms and ask you about the results you want to achieve. Initial evaluation is performed and – if there is nothing to be concerned about – your therapist will proceed with the massage. If you are seeking treatment for a chronic condition, the massage therapist may advise a series of sessions.

Do provincial health plans such as OHIP  cover massage therapy?

Massage therapy is covered by many health insurance plans but is not covered under provincially funded health coverage. In cases of injury rehabilitation, Work Place Safety Insurance WSIB (ON), Worker’s Compensation Insurance and auto insurance may cover the cost of massage therapy. Please see the coverage tab for more on insurance and fees.

Coverage Options:

Tri City Physiotherapy services are covered by most extended health insurance companies and in some cases Veterans Affairs and Medicare – such as OHIP. Not sure if you’re covered? No problem. We can help you find out (and usually within the hour). Just call us at 1 (519)-620-2229.
