Scar Care 

Why Scar Care?

Having your abdominal, c-section, mastectomy, plastic surgery or other post surgical scar assessed is important in preventing adhesions, further complications and to fully recover function. 

Scars can also inhibit body connection, body awareness, feeling/sensation and strength. This can be radically changed with manual therapy, stretching and exercises administered through my care. You do not have to be in pain to have this assessed, in fact, I recommend assessment for everyone regardless. It's amazing how much surgery and scarring can play a role in synthesizing optimal movement, function and strength. Even more so, the importance of emotional healing that sometimes gets pushed aside due to life circumstances. 

This holistic approach will greatly support you in having greater peace and harmony in your body, mind and spirit.

Out of Network & Cash Pay Care

 

If you have Health Insurance that's great! You will likely get reimbursement for your visit. 

Step 1: Call your Insurance Provider and ask if they cover Out of Network Care. Then ask if they require a doctor referral for physical therapy. 

Step 2: If a doctor referral is required, please get that before your initial visit. 

Step 3. After each visit with me, you will receive a special receipt to submit to your insurance company. If they also require a referral you will submit that too. The reimbursement will either go toward your deductible or back to you directly. 

You can use HSA, FSA, Credit, and Debit for Payment Online

If it doesn't cover out of network then you can still see me as Cash Pay!
