Do You Accept Health Insurance?

Yes, we work with most major health insurance companies. Check with your insurance company to see if your specific plan covers massage. You can also check to see if we're in network (currently, only Rachel Joyce accepts insurance) for you. It's handy if you know what your co-pay is too (if you have one). When you come in, make sure you bring your insurance card with you, because we'll need the information on it to bill your insurance. Questions? Give us a call or send Rachel an email at rachel@touchworksllc.com!

How to Reschedule Your Appointment

So you've scheduled your appointment and need to move it? Here's what you do:

First, pull up the confirmation email you received when you first made the appointment. At the bottom of the email you should see a message about rescheduling with a link. Click on the link and it will bring you to your appointment screen. From there, you can reschedule or cancel (but you don't really want to do that, do you?).

If you didn't get a confirmation email, it's because you didn't provide your email address when you made the appointment (or because your appointment is less than 48 hours from when you scheduled it). So give me a call or email me and I'll reschedule it for you.

If your appointment is less than 12 hours away and you'd like to reschedule, you'll need to call or email me to do so. REMINDER: Our cancellation policy requires a 12 hour notice for cancellations. Cancellations made less than 12 hours before your appointment are subject to a $20 cancellation fee.

Is TouchWorks What You're Looking For?

If you've had more than one massage, you probably already know not every massage therapist is the same and there are many types of massage. Here at TouchWorks, we focus on aches, pains and injuries. Why is that important to know? Because we want to make sure you're coming to the right place for the right stuff. We don't stick to just one massage technique here, for instance. So if you are looking for a session of trigger point work and nothing else, you probably won't be pleased with what we do. However, we usually incorporate some trigger point work in each session. We use many other massage techniques as well, and they all help with aches, pains and injuries. Need more help figuring out if TouchWorks is right for you? Please consider the following:

If you...

-deal with aches or pains on a regular basis

-spend your days leaning over your patients (We love to work on folks in the medical field!)

-aren't feeling as young as you once did

-work at a desk or do some other type of stationary work

-find that pain keeps you from performing daily activities

-were recently injured

...and you're interested in using a series of massages to help with your pain (or recieve massage at least once a month to keep the pain away), then we're probably a great fit!

 But, if you...

-want relaxation massage

-want pre-natal massage

-want energy work (like Reiki)

-want hot stone massage

-enjoy massage that hurts so much you can't breathe

...then we probably aren't a great fit. However, we have a list of fabulous massage therapists we can refer you to. Take a look at the Links page to see our list of other healthcare professionals we love. If you don't see what you're looking for, contact me and we'll do our best to find someone better skilled to meet your needs.

Questions? Feel free to contact us and we'll try to give you some answers.
