MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage therapy is an ancient healing art that enhances health and well being while providing a host of therapeutic benefits. Massage is an excellent way to decrease stress, melt away muscle tension, relaxing your body & mind while improving range of motion and flexibility. Therapeutic massage also decreases pain, improves circulation & lymph flow, and stimulates the nervous & immune systems, aiding recovery from pain, trauma and surgery. 

 

We are happy to bill your insurance for your massage. Please be aware that a current doctor's prescription (within 6 months) is required with the following information:

  • Start and End date

  • ICD-10 Diagnosis code(s) specific to your chief complaint(s)

  • Number of visits or frequency/duration of visits

Insurance companies require that the massage be medically necessary. Generally this is defined as treating a condition or issue which is impairing one or more daily functions and is expected to measurably improve with treatment. Maintenance of long term issues and wellness massage is not considered medically necessary. Please contact your insurance company for further details specific to your plan.

 

 

Judith Morrow Brown, LMP

 

 

As a Washington State licensed massage therapist for over thirty years, and a member of AMTA, Judith has practiced in clinics, spa's and home offices, as well as working with elder adults in assisted living communities. With extensive knowledge in a variety of therapeutic techniques, Judith tailors her massage treatments with respect to the needs and issues of each individual.

 

Having worked with hundreds of clients through the years, with issues ranging from daily stress, to traumatic injury, Judith skillfully combines professional training, therapeutic touch and compassionate care.

 

Combining deep tissue methods and Swedish massage techniques to relieve pain, stress spasm, and discomfort, Judith's work promotes healing, relaxation and restoration. Applications of smooth heated stones, quiet music and soothing warm lotions are used to enhance this healthful and comforting experience.

 

Massage is usually applied directly on skin, but individuals may chose to be treated through clothing or a bed sheet, or treatment can be applied to patients while sitting in a chair or wheelchair.

 

Patients with Alzheimer's disease enjoy relief from fears, anger and depression through this treatment. Gently promoting peace, calm and well being, therapeutic massage is a language without words that is understood by the body, mind and spirit.

 

Bowen work is a dynamic muscle balancing technique, resetting tension in muscles and muscle groups by using a unique type of stretch and roll through movement which vibrates nerves on the muscle underbelly. There are precise movements with pauses between each series of moves, allowing the body to circulate and balance, stimulating energy flow. This work treats many ailments and can be reviewed by going to Bowtech.
