Health Insurance

Everybody is exited to hear we accept insurance and wants to know “Do you take MY insurance?” And the short answer is “That completely depends on your Insurance Plan but we will certainly try!”

In order for you to use your insurance to cover our services, we will need to verify your benefits. Since we are a Manual Therapy clinic, our services generally fall under Physical Therapy benefits but some insurers also lump us in with Chiropractors and Acupuncturists in an ‘Alternative medicine’ benefit. All of this is determined by your individual plan.

Yes we are In-Network with Regence/BCBS and Providence and that certainly helps lower cost for folks with those insurers. We can also bill some Pacific Source plans if they have Out-of-Network benefits. Again, it all depends on the plan details.

Once you schedule an Initial visit, you will receive an email to set up your account with our software, where you will be able to fill out our Intake and Health History forms- this is where you will provide us all of your insurance info. We will then be able to check your plan benefits. If your plan does not cover our services we can change your appointment to Self-Pay or we can simply cancel it so you can find a practitioner that is covered (We totally understand,  insurance is expensive and you want to use those benefits!) If you would like for us to check your benefits before scheduling, please contact us via text or email.

Your First Visit

Until you’ve had a session (or two or five) with us, it is a little hard to conceptualize what exactly the experience is like. What we provide is very likely something you haven’t seen or experienced before and thus have no basis to relate to. Even the lofty goals we set out for each session is not common place- we aim to literally create and reclaim functional space within your body, space for movement, space for the literal and metaphorical breathing room, space for clarity and space to think. 

We aim to help you make fundamental change that will not only alleviate the pain you are experiencing but also the underlying pattern that led up to the pain. To be successful you will have to be responsible for making changes to how you move about in this world. And just like any life change, we need solid motivation to carry us through the process. What motivates or inspires you to want change? Beyond just getting out of pain- is it playing with the kids in your life? Being able to do your favorite hobby or sport? Gardening, hiking, pickle ball? Is it being able to get through the demands of work and still have enough energy to do a hobby or activity? Having that specific goal is vital to motivation as well as having a measuring stick for your progress. (It is perfectly ok to start with the goal of just being able to wash your hair or do dishes without pain or even simply wanting a greater sense of stability within yourself.) It ultimately means asking “What are the activities in my life that I want to be ale to do with ease and joy?”

Your therapist will ask about your goal in the first session- your first homework! During the initial interview we will go over your health history as well as do physical assessments. These assessments may include breathing, standing, walking and general range of motion.

The actual structure of your bodywork session is impossible to predict or describe as it will be decided by your therapist based on your current issues, needs and assessments. But we can confidently say you will, at some point, experience your therapist using techniques that employ their hands, forearms, elbows, knees, feet and maybe even sitting (Yes therapeutic sitting! It feels amazing and is very effective!) Your therapist may also incorporate cupping, scraping, Tok Sen, hot herbal compresses and/or medicinal topicals. Towards the end of the session we may share recommendations for corrective exercises or supportive follow up care to be done at home. Whether it happens in the first session or the fourth, everyone gets homework eventually. Our job is to help you reclaim space in your body, your job is to make use of it. No progress can be made if you don’t change “how you do what you do.”

Now that you’ve read our intro, feel free to book your Initial Session. For extra credit, book a few Follow-Up sessions. We strongly recommend having a follow-up session within a week or two (if at all possible) so we can see what did or did not change for you.

 If you are a New Client that is studiously booking your Follow Up visits in advance (Gold star for you!) we implore you to make sure to book your Initial Visit first, lest you provoke the office gnomes who will chatter angrily while waving their fists.
