I offer in-home appointments in the following Capital Regional District municipalities – Victoria, Oak Bay, Saanich, View Royal, Highlands, Langford, Colwood, and Esquimalt. If you live outside of these municipalities but would like to book an appointment, please contact me by phone or email so I can determine if your location is reasonable for me to get to. Availability varies weekly and currently includes daytime appointments on weekdays, weekends, and some holidays.
I do not offer workplace appointments. COVID-19 update: I am limiting my in-home appointments to one treatment per work day until at least the end of August 2020 to help reduce the risk of transmission of the virus that causes COVID-19. Unfortunately, institutional visits are suspended indefinitely (i.e. hospitals, retirement residences, assisted living facilities, long term care facilities, etc.). I plan to offer these types of appointments again when it is safe to do so.
Fees in Effect until December 31, 2020.
- Registered Massage Therapy…..45 minute appointment – $110
- Registered Massage Therapy…..60 minute appointment – $125
- Registered Massage Therapy…..75 minute appointment – $140
- Fees are inclusive of the clinical fee (administration, assessment, evaluation, treatment, patient education), mobile fee ($25), and GST (5% of total). Reduced mobile fee is available in limited circumstances.
- Initial appointments are 75 minutes.
- Subsequent appointments may be 45, 60, or 75 minutes.
Institutional visits These often need to be relatively short to accommodate your body’s current state of health. Please speak to your primary care provider about whether or not massage therapy is appropriate for you. This type of treatment does not include a standard massage table set up. It is a clothed treatment and you are positioned wherever you are most comfortable (eg. hospital bed, armchair, etc). This type of treatment may take place in your home if your health and mobility make this the best choice for you. 45 minute appointment – $100 (inclusive of clinical fee, mobile fee, and GST as above). COVID-19 update: All institutional visits are suspended indefinitely. In-home appointments of this type may still be possible, please speak to me about your treatment goals and mobility when booking.
Payments – Fees are due at the time of your appointment. They can be paid by electronic money transfer (e-transfer), credit card (visa/mastercard), cheque, or cash (this is the order of preference while COVID-19 precautions are in place). As a health professional I do not expect nor will I accept gratuities. Fees are payable at the time of your appointment.
Insurance – Direct billing is currently NOT available. A receipt will be issued for the full amount of your fees and you can submit this to your private insurer(s) for reimbursement according to the limits of your policy/policies.
MSP, ICBC, Worksafe BC – I am currently not enrolled with MSP – this may change. Appointments for ICBC or Worksafe BC cases are currently NOT available. This may also change in the future.
Cancellation Policy and Missed Appointment Fees – Your appointment time is reserved just for you. There is no penalty for an appointment rescheduled or cancelled with twenty-four hours (24 hrs) notice or more. You will be charged the full fee for appointments rescheduled or cancelled with less than twenty-four hours (24 hrs) notice; the full fee is also due in case of a ‘no-show’ (i.e. I arrive to your home for your appointment and you are not there). Late cancellations due to emergency situations may be excepted. Future appointments cannot be booked when fees are outstanding. COVID-19 update: Until further notice and to ensure honesty when completing screening questions, the cancellation fee (usually applicable with less than 24 hours notice) is waived when cancellation is due to illness or to feeling unwell. The ‘no show’ fee remains in place if I arrive for your appointment and you are not there.
