Thai Massage is performed on a mat and is often equated to assisted yoga. Come to the session with clothing that you are able to move freely in such as yoga wear.

Question:

Will I experience muscle soreness following a massage treatment?

Most people report feeling very relaxed, and often experience significant relief from aches, pains and stress after a massage session. However some people experience mild muscle soreness which may last a day or two. Once the soreness is gone, they often notice heightened energy levels and an increased range of motion.

Question:

I'm not sure I'm comfortable with a stranger touching me.

Answer:

It is not uncommon for first-time clients to be apprehensive with the personal nature of massage. Most clients lose this apprehension within the first few minutes of treatment. A Thai Therapists will respect your feelings and go out of their way to allow you to feel comfortable.

Question:

Will my extended healthcare plan cover the costs of my treatments?

Answer:

Only certain regulated modalities are eligible for coverage in Ontario. These professionals enjoy a special status in Ontario and with most insurance Companies. Although Thai Massage enjoys this same status in Thailand, where I am registered with the Government and have worked in the health care system there, it is not recognized here in Ontario.  With this in mind, my services are generally not covered by extended health care plans.

With this in mind, you may still wish to invest in a Thai Massage Session, keeping in mind that only a portion of a limited number of massages would be covered through extended health care.

I encourage you to contact your insurance agent and ask them why a Thai Massage is not covered.
