AMTA's Approach to the Affordable Care Act
08/07/2013 12:00 AM
Evanston, IL. The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) understands there has been much discussion and debate about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the potential role for massage therapists that it might provide within health insurance based, third-party reimbursement. Similar debates are taking place among other health care professionals as the ACA presents many challenges for everyone involved in health care, from professionals to consumers. While the law was enacted more than 3 years ago, it continues to be debated, analyzed and scrutinized. Meanwhile, the law has evolved and implementation will continue to evolve, especially as states determine their approaches to it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who will perform the massage or bodywork?

A: A licensed and certified massage therapist (MT) will perform your therapeutic massage session.

Q: Must I be completely undressed?

A: The therapist can perform a full body massage with or without clothing. 50% of clients leave their undergarments on and 50% do not.Undress to your level of comfort.

Q: Will the therapist be present when I disrobe?

A: The therapist will bring you into the room and discuss your intake form and any other needs you have for your session. They will then leave the room and close the door for you to undress. There are shelves in each room for clothing and jewelry. Once you are under the sheets and on the table the therapist will re-enter the room and close the door.

Q: Will I be covered during the session?

A: The therapist will only uncover the area that they will be working on. You will be properly draped for your warmth and comfort.

Q: What parts of my body will be massaged?

A: The therapist will discuss your intake form and the areas that you would like to be massaged before you undress. A typical massage will include the back, glutes, legs, feet, arms, hands, neck and head. if stomach massage is needed this can be addressed without exposing or touching the breasts or genitals.

Q: How long will the session last?

A: The massage will either last 20-25 minutes with a 30 minute session, 50-55 minutes with a 60 minute session or 80-85 minutes with a 90 minute session. You will have 5-10 minutes to discuss your intake form, undress before and dress after the massage.

Q: What will the massage feel like?

A: If you have chosen a Swedish/Relaxation massage your massage will be light and relaxing. If you have chosen a deep tissue you will have heavier pressure in areas of concern. The therapists use lotion/oil to reduce friction during the massage.

Q: What should I do during the massage?

A: You should relax and let your mind clear. Be as comfortable as possible. The therapist can help you to achieve maximum comfort by making their pressure lighter or heavier, raising or lowering the face rest, turning the music up or down and other such changes. Let your therapist know whether you need any of these things to help you relax.

Q: When should I get a massage?

A: It is best to receive massage at least once a month. Waiting until you are stressed or in pain will not help alleviate these problems. A LaVida receptionist can help book your appointments in advance or you can book online.

Q: Should I be concerned about the gender of my therapist?

A: All LaVida Massage therapists are licensed and certified. The gender of a therapist will not tell you about their style of massage. Each therapist has a unique massage. You can work with a LaVida receptionist to find the right therapist to meet your needs.

Q: What if I am embarrassed about my body?

A: All of our massage therapists have been trained and are professionals in their practice. They have worked with every body type from both genders.

A: We do not perform prenatal massage during the first trimester of pregnancy. During the second and third trimesters we will require a doctor's note prior to performing this service. Every pregnancy is different and we want to be sure to focus on the health of you and your baby.
