• What Do You Know About Neck Pain?

    • Stretch after an hour of television viewing or sitting at the computer. - a lot of fitness watches often alert you if it senses that you have been sitting too long without movement.
    • Work on your posture both standing and seated to keep your spine properly aligned.
    • Make sure your work station is ergonomic with good low back support.
    • Drink water to keep the disks of your spine hydrated.

    • Warm up before and stretch out after physical activities such as sports, gardening or other daily projects
    • Lift heavy items safely and slowly, avoid fast jerky motions

    • Falling asleep on the arm of the sofa
    • Thin pillows that provide no neck support - try to sleep on your back if you can

    If neck pain persists, it is best to see a health care professional to develop a personalized treatment and pain prevention plan. 

    Taking a few preventative measures will help reduce your chances of neck pain and keep you discomfort free.

  • ICBC CLAIMS - HOW DOES REIMBURSEMENT WORK?

    We have had a few encounters with individuals that have an ICBC claim and require massage therapy services. We just wanted to clarify how the payment process works, so that there is no miscommunication between both parties.


    ICBC only pays a portion ($23) of the private massage price. The therapist directly bills ICBC that $23 portion that the client did not have to pay. However, they still have to pay the rest of the portion of the massage that the $23 did not cover for services rendered. We do not directly bill the whole portion of the massage to ICBC. 


    Example: A 1 hour massage initially costs $110. All ICBC claimants, once given the go ahead by their adjuster are covered up to a specific amount of massage appointments. Their adjusted fee for a 1 hour massage is now $87 instead of $110 that is payable at the end of the appointment. 

     


  • Parking at Remedy

    Hello everyone,

    With the exception of the last few weeks, we are expecting nice and sunny weather ahead of us. With summer coming and more stores opening up in the complex, we expect higher volume of cars and traffic . If you have a hard time finding parking, there is ample amounts found in the parkade attached to Marshall's. Peak hours are during lunch/dinner times and weekends, where a majority of people looking for parking are for the restaurants. Please try to arrive 5 minutes prior to your massage therapy appointment at Remedy to ensure you have time to look for parking.

    Thank you!
