In today’s world, massage therapy is finally being recognized as a away to relieve tension and muscle aches. Yes, there are clients who do seek out massage for the sole purpose of having a spa day, and there is nothing wrong with that. But the majority of clients, at least in my experience as a massage therapist, receive massage for healing purposes. And while most who need a corrective approach are treated for muscle pain or emotional stress, some clients are prescribed massage for injuries or medical conditions.
When it’s a necessity for a specific condition, massage may be eligible for reimbursement. The service can be covered by a health savings account (HSA) to pay for the massage, you must provide a letter of medical necessity from your doctor that therapeutic message is really needed and you'll be able to pay for your treatment by card otherwise it will be a out of pocket expenxe.
