What to Expect

On your first visit, a detailed health history and assessment will be taken to better understand your needs and goals. This will be done in first 60-minute session.

All past injuries, traumas, and surgeries will be reviewed before you are recommended a treatment program best suited to you and your specific needs.

During the assessment and treatment, clients are asked to wear a pair of loose fitting shorts and, for women, also a tank top or sports bra. (If you would wear it to the gym or yoga it is acceptable).

There is no lotion used in these treatments to eliminate dragging on the skin and no sheets so as to allow your body to unwind as it needs.

During your MFR treatment, as the physical restrictions are being released, you will become very relaxed and your body will begin to soften. You may feel nothing more than a deep stretch and relaxation as you begin to shut off the chatter of your thoughts and explore the sensations of your body. As minutes pass, you will begin to feel sensations in various parts of your body as the tension released begins to relieve pressure on sensitive organs and nerves.

More often than not, there will also be emotions that come bubbling up. Some may be fleeting, gone as fast as they come. Others may be profound, accompanied by long forgotten or suppressed memories of the past. Whatever the type or intensity, you will be encouraged remain present and soften into the feeling. You will, at all times, be safe.

After the treatment, people often report feeling lighter, more mobile, and straighter. Usually, they also notice a significant decrease of pain.

This can last days or weeks, and it is advisable that you continue with the home care exercises, which will also be given to reinforce your progress.

Sometimes you may be asked to come in multiple times in a week for shorter sessions, depending on the situation.

How Sessions are Booked

You are not just coming in for a general massage, you are coming in for something different, something that will you achieve the lifestyle you want and reduce any pain or symptoms you are experiencing.

The first session is 60-minutes which will consist of a full assessment, education, and treatment.

Our treatments are generally under 60-minutes, as we believe in the less more often model to healing. You will most likely be asked to come in 1-3 times a week for 30-minute durations depending on your treatment plan. We sometimes even suggest a simple 15-minute check-in if needed between sessions.

We do not do general massage. When you come to Perfect Health you are coming for therapy treatments focused on your facia and Myofascial treatment in your body.

These sessions are all performed by Lee Botbijl who is a Myofascial specialist, Registered Massage Therapist, Medical Qigong Trainer, and Nutritional Therapist. He holds multiple other certificates in energy work, bars therapy, and medical cannabis use. You can learn more by visiting his office and taking a look around, or by coming to one of our Dinners With The Therapist.

FAQ

What is involved in the initial visit and how much does it cost?

During your initial visit, a detailed health history will be taken, outlining your past and present issues, including any injuries, surgeries, and traumas you’ve experienced. Your posture will be assessed, as well as a range of motion testing, and possibly some neurological testing to help determine where to begin treatment. You table time will be shorter in this appointment but the long-term benefits will be worth it. Cost for treatments can be found under the description when you go to Book Online. Our prices range is from $55.00 – $135.00.

What combinations of treatment will be used?

Depending on your therapist’s training, it will be a mixture of Active Release Technique (ART), Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT), and Myofascial Release (MFR). These will be used along with a traditional massage therapy and a movement therapy.

Why is the therapist treating other areas of my body than where I'm feeling the pain?

Everything is connected through the extensive fascial network. When one part of the body is injured or restricted, other parts of the body must change in order to compensate for the lack of movement.  By listening to the wisdom of the body, the therapist may be drawn to other areas that are hardened, tender, or pulling, other than where the symptoms are experienced. The client is able to then connect the relationship of the area being treated to the symptomatic issues they are initially there to treat.

Is it covered by my insurance?

Most private insurance plans these days cover a certain percentage or amount for Registered Massage Therapy. If you have a private coverage, check with your insurer to see if you are required to have a doctor’s referral for a Massage Therapy and bring it with you to your first appointment. Unless you are a put a credit card on file with us so that we may bill any outstanding amounts on file, you will be required to pay for your treatment upfront and will be issued a receipt, which you can submit to your insurance company for a reimbursement.
