I will always strive to answer all your questions about anything.  So if you still have any questions please do not hesitate to ask me.  

I don't know what you know, what you don't know and what you want to know!

Frequently asked questions

I've never seen a Registered Massage Therapist before.  What should I expect?

I will ask you to fill out a detailed and confidential Health History Form in order to gather pertinent information needed to be able to provide safe and effective treatments. All RMT's are trained in Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Kinesiology, Remedial Excerise, Treatments and more. Some treatments require skin on skin techniques while others do not require the removal of any clothes, it just depends what the problem is or what the goal of treatment is. All treatment plans are discussed and consented to prior to every treatment so there are no surprises during treatment. All RMT's in Ontario are Regulated Health Professionals which means we are part of the Medical system and are required to uphold Standards of Practice. We are able to provide you with a receipt after treatment to use for your extended insurance, although we are not covered under OHIP.

Do you offer Gift Certificates for Massage?

I do not offer Gift Certificates. I am required to mantain your file for 10 years after your last treatment with me for medical, legal and Insurance purposes. Also, due to the personal nature of my business I prefer patients choose to make appointments with me directly when they are ready and not because they "have to because they have a GC". That does not stop anyone for paying for their treatments, however, receipts will only be issued in the name of the recipient of the treatment. (ex. Husband pays for wifes treatment, receipt will be issued in the wifes name as she was the one who received the treament)

Can you give me a treatment and put a different date on the receipt?

No, I am not able to date receipts on different days in which the treatment took place. That is fraud.

Is it safe to receive treatment due to the recent Pandemic?

The Government as well as The College of Massage Therapist of Ontario (CMTO) has deemed it safe for Registered Massage Therapists to work in Ontrario as we are a Regulated Health profession. Both the Therapist and the patient are required to wear masks, perform pre-screening questions 24 hours prior to treatment and day of treatment, as well as increased and specific cleaning and disinfecting protocols. For more information please visit https://www.cmto.com/covid-19/

How do I book an appointment with you at your home practice?

Due to security reasons, I have decided against online booking at this time. All patient files will automatically be trasnferred to my home practice in January 2021 and will receive an email with detailed instructions on how to book. If you are an active patient and did not receive information, you may email me at breebouvier@gmail.com. I will only be accepting new patients by referral only.

How do your virtual care appointments work?

Virtual Care appointments are a great alternative when in-person care is not an option. Together we go over your Health History, perform a few assessments based on your symptoms and I will direct you on how to self treat the area which will then become your homecare exercises. Most virtual appointments will require the use of either massage/yoga balls, foam roller, etc which can be purchased ahead of time from my online store. Indications for virtual care include: 1. Self Isolation for health reasons 2. Need assistance with homecare between in-person appointments 3. Have run out of extended health insurance and need an affordable alternative 4. Do not live in close proximity to receieve in-person treatment

What type of Consulting, Coaching or Mentoring do you provide?

I can provide a wide variety of either Consulting or Coaching using NLP whether it is work related or maybe personal. All situations will be unique and may even overlap! Mentoring is more specific to students who are currently studying or who have recently graduated from the Massage Therapy Program and are looking for more direction. If you're not sure, just send me an email and we can discuss how I can help!
