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.

If you 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.

Will insurance pay for massage?

No. 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.
