 Information on services, rates, massage offerings, trigger point therapy, insurance, etc.

My office hours are relatively flexible, generally
Monday - Thursday 1PM to 8PM by appointment.
(sometimes outside of those times if needed)

ALL hours are by appointment only.

CALL FOR APPOINTMENT TIMES
724-494-1468  Call or Text
or use the "contact me" page and send me an email note with
"TRIGGER POINT THERAPY" in the subject.

Free 15 minute phone consultation to answer your questions about the treatment, your condition and any other questions you might have prior to making an appointment.

I am willing to answer questions and offer suggestions if you are not in the Pittsburgh or North Pittsburgh area!

Most people are understandably concerned about the investment when it comes to this type of care. For most people, this is an "out of pocket" expense, your health insurance will not pay for my services, but Auto and Workers Comp may.

My fees are based on expertise, training and time spent with you.  However, I do whatever we can to hold down these costs by keeping my fees in line with a high-quality massage. As you may have noticed, what I do is rather different than standard massage, my training was completely different, as will be your results.

I am Board Certified in Myofascial Trigger Point Therapand Certified in Medical Massage Therapy.

I am also licensed by the state of Pennsylvania as a Licensed Massage Therapist  PA# MSG001805

Sometimes you may only need a session or 2 for an acute problem, other times, the difference is how many sessions you will need depends a lot on changes you can make, the willingness to do the "home work"  and the elimination of perpetuating factors. Other people use my services as they would a massage on a regular basis. This could be 1x week, 2x month, 1x month or as needed as maintenance.

What is the investment? 

My "at time of service" (cash, check or Debit/Credit Card) rates:
$80 hour,   $115 90 minutes,    $150 for 2 hours.
Any Friday, Saturday or Sunday appointments are charged at $160 CASH for 90 minutes if I am available.
You may also purchase a $375 Wellness Package
of 5 one hour (or 300 minutes) sessions 
or $550 for 5  90 minute (450 min) sessions of
Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy or Massage 
 
Packages are to be used within a years time, but can be shared with a family member or a friend.
You can usually use your Health Savings Account if you have one. (find out if you need a prescription from your doctor for it to be covered)
Any services that are BILLED are charged my regular rates!
This includes any payment not made at time of service such as bounced check,
invalid credit card, billed to 3rd party etc.

$140 per hour or $35 per 15 minute unit 

 My specialty is Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy and  I am one of few
Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists in the US.
I can bill your AUTO Insurance for injuries sustained in the accident and some Workers Comp
I have 18 years experience with working with Doctors and the
Auto Insurance Companies.

Please note that Nationwide Auto  Insurance will NOT pay for my treatment. Please call and ask them.

They have taken advantage of the wording in our massage license and will only pay a DC, MD, Physical Therapist or a Massage therapist as an employee of these to perform massage!  The skill and training of the MT performing the treatment does not matter, it only matters that they are working under an MD.

Rather often, those that they WILL pay do not have a fraction of the training in Trigger Point Therapy as I do and they are not Certified in the modality.

  Switch insurance companies NOW if you have Nationwide, they are NOT on your side!

They have chosen to deny you effective, hands on, personalized treatment that costs LESS than Physical Therapy

  Unfortunately, in Pennsylvania and most other states, massage therapists can NOT BILL your HEALTH INSURANCE
unless your plan actually offers to pay for massage. (not likely)
(there are a few in the Pittsburgh are area that can, because there is a doctor in the practice, contact me for info)
