Frequently asked questions
How do I make an appointment?
Just call Ron at (218) 368-3628 for
an appointment. If he is unable to answer when you call, please leave him a message and he will return your call as soon as possible. Appointments can be scheduled Monday thru Friday, 8 am to 5 pm.
What will my first visit be like?
At the 522 Beltrami Ave. NW Professional Building, Ron's office is Suite #108. Please walk right on
in to the waiting room that Ron shares with a family therapist. His office door is on the right.
Ron will have a health questionnaire that you will need to complete (you can download each of the forms on the Contact Us page). You and Ron will discuss the reasons for your visit and what results you are hoping to achieve.
What do I wear?
In the private treatment room, you will be left in privacy and you may remove as few or as many clothes as you choose. Lotions or oils may be used on bare skin but massage may also be done through clothing. To what extent you disrobe is entirely up to you—your comfort is what is most important. Ron always knocks before entering the room to begin your session.
Do I need to get permission from my doctor before I get a massage?
In most cases, no. However, if
you’re currently under care
for a chronic condition, be sure to consult with your
health care provider. I’m always happy to receive instructions
from you doctor or chiropractor to better protect your
health and improve the outcome of your massage session.
have any questions or concerns on this issue please give
Ron a call at (218) 368-3628. He will discuss with you the
appropriateness of massage therapy for your situation and
what information you will need to discuss with your health care provider.
insurance pay for massage?
However, in a very few isolated cases, Workman’s Comp
or Auto Insurance may pay for massage with a
written prescription from a doctor. However, you would need
to pay for the massage
and seek reimbursement from the insurance company.
