Center for Neuromuscular Massage Therapy
Are you wondering exactly what happens during a massage session? Not sure if your insurance plan will cover your therapy? Concerned about tipping etiquette? You have questions about your massage. Denver massage practitioners from the Center for Massage Therapy have the answers.
What happens during my massage?
Massage therapists need as much information as they can get regarding your line of work, your lifestyle and any current or historical health issues you may have in order to provide the most effective therapy possible. Before your session begins they will ask you a few questions designed to draw this information out, and to get an idea of why you are seeking a massage.
At the beginning of your session, the therapist will leave the room to allow you to undress to your comfort level and to get on the table, under the sheet and blanket. When the therapist returns and begins your therapy, be sure to let them know if you need more or less pressure, or anything else that might make you more comfortable.
Once your session has ended, the therapist will let you know, and will leave the room so that you may get dressed again. Take your time, get up slowly, and be sure to drink extra water over the next couple of days to allow your body to flush toxins from your system.
How much does massage therapy cost?
Our rates are very competitive for high quality therapeutic massage. Denver massage deals and pricing are available along with the following special offers:
First time client massage special.
Special discounts for seniors.
Birthday month massage discount (after your initial visit).
Package rates of $5 off each visit when you pay for 5 or more at a time. The package credit remains on your account to be used anytime and it never expires.
We appreciate your referrals! Get $5 off your next massage when you refer someone to our clinic. Just be sure they know to mention your name when they come in.
Massage Gift Certificates are available.
We accept SpaFinders gift cards/certificates. However, because they discount their reimbursement to us when one of their gift certificates is redeemed, we are unable to offer any discounts with SpaFinders gift certificates.
While going to a chain may seem like a good deal at first, rather than getting a local massage, Denver-based Center for Massage Therapy offers a lot more quality, for just a bit more money. And, your dollars will be supporting the local economy.
Does my insurance cover massage therapy?
Depending on the benefits of your policy, massage may be a covered benefit. We are usually able to bill Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Colorado. We would be happy to verify your benefits to see if your insurance company would cover massage therapy in our clinic.
If you have been in an automobile accident, we can bill your auto policy if you have a medical payments option with benefits still available. We do require a doctor’s prescription to prove medical necessity.
We can also bill Worker’s Compensation companies if you have a claim for injury and a doctor’s prescription.
Should I tip my therapist?
Tipping is always appreciated but never expected. We would rather have you return soon for another massage therapy session than to have you feel obligated to leave a gratuity. If you are especially pleased with your therapy session, the recommended gratuity is between 10% and 20% of your pre-discount total.
We also appreciate your honest feedback. Please let us know if you have any comments or concerns regarding your massage. Our policy is to exceed your expectations.
What happens if I have to cancel my appointment?
We understand that situations arise over which you have no control. If you need to cancel at the last minute, please just give us a quick call at 303-777-1151, so that we know you did not simply forget. We do require at least a 12 hour notice otherwise, so that we can offer the appointment time to another client. Please be aware that your therapist does not get paid if you do not show up for your appointment. We assess a $35 cancellation or no show fee to cover the therapist’s time.
