Ashi-Thai Massage is Coming to North Shore Oahu

Aloha Friends,

I am super excited that the DeepFeet team is offering advanced ashiatsu classes right here in Waialua on the North Shore of Oahu! I am signed up to take all three of the advanced training courses this August. I have been a barefoot massage practitioner through DeepFeet since 2007 and subsequently got my advanced ashiatsu certification from Barefoot Masters back in the days where it was frowned down upon to learn from two different training institutes.



I am curious to find out how the techniques vary between the two different programs. I have heard wonderful things about the new DeepFeet program from North Shore massage therapist, Abby Parker. She is a credentialed instructor who offers classes right here in Waialua near Haleiwa, Hawaii. Her massage studio is located close to Integrated Massage in the Pa'alakai Scoop of Paradise building.

I am completely new to the world of Ashi-Thai massage. It will be so fun to learn how to integrate these two amazing massage modalities. I have been offering traditional zen shiatsu for 20 years, and I also perform "Thai on the Table," but I never imagined that you could combine barefoot massage with thai massage using overhead bars!

Being familiar with DeepFeet's rigorous certification process, I am certain that I will have to perform many practice massages before getting my full certification. If any of you out there are interested in a free training add-on to your next massage, please give me a call!

I am now scheduling appointments for the second half of August at my North Shore massage clinic in Waialua. Give me a call or text. I would love to see you soon. Prices start at $55 and I take insurance policies that cover massage in Hawaii.

I am also taking a limited number of house calls for North Shore massage. My Waialua and Haleiwa outcall massage services start at $200. I am happy to travel to your hotel room at Turtle Bay Resort or your vacation rental or AirBnB to perform onsite massage therapy. For the best rates, I recommend that you come to my convenient North Shore Massage location in Waialua. Our massage clinic is just minutes away from Haleiwa town.


I love what I do, and I look forward to working with you soon. Please don't hesitate to call me with any questions about massage in Hawaii.

Sincerely,

Hawaii Insurance Coverage for Massage Therapy: 2019 Updates

If a doctor has prescribed massage therapy for the treatment of a musculoskeletal condition, you may have coverage available from your insurance provider. Read the following updates regarding massage therapy insurance coverage in Hawaii for 2019. Give our North Shore massage clinic a call if we can help answer any questions. We are located in the Ka'ala Healing Arts Center in Waialua, just outside of Hale'iwa. We also offer our community wellness program to all kama'aina who do not have insurance coverage for massage.

Triwest: No coverage at this time

I have received confirmation from Triwest that they do not cover massage at this time. If you have a direct liaison with Triwest who claims that coverage is available, please provide their contact information to me. As of this time, the Department of Veterans Affairs program offered through Triwest Healthcare Alliance does not allow massage therapists to participate as providers and does not allow for stand-alone coverage for massage in the state of Hawaii. There may be coverage available for other states and regions, but it varies widely.

HMSA

HMSA has plans that cover massage therapy in the state of Hawaii. These are typically higher-end plans. HMSA Quest does not cover massage therapy. Please give us a call or call the number on your insurance card to confirm your Hawaii insurance coverage for massage therapy. You must have a medical condition and medical necessity for massage to be a covered benefit. 

Kaiser Permanente

Kaiser has some plans that cover massage therapy. A doctors referral is needed and you must demonstrate medical necessity for massage. Call our North Shore massage clinic in Waialua near Haleiwa to determine if your policy covers massage. 

HMAA

HMAA has a few companies that have opted to include massage therapy for their employees. If your employer has not opted to have massage as a benefit, let them know you are interested. 

UHA

UHA has some plans that cover a nominal amount of medically necessary massage therapy in Hawaii. Members no longer need to get a doctor's prescription or referral. Please call UHA to confirm your coverage for massage before giving our North Shore massage clinic a call. 




Thank you for reading about these updates regarding insurance coverage for massage therapy. It is our pleasure to serve the North Shore community of Oahu. Give our massage clinic in Waialua a call if you have any questions. We are located just outside of Haleiwa in the Ka'ala Healing Arts Center.

I love what I do, and I look forward to meeting you soon. I will be back in the office full-time in August of 2019.

Sincerely,
Sonia Beauchamp

North Shore Couples Massage

There are not many places to schedule a couple's massage session on the North Shore of Oahu. Most people go to Spa Nalu at Turtle Bay Resort, but here in Waialua, we offer another option. Our small massage therapy clinic is a great alternative to a busy resort and spa for your North Shore massage session. We offer many different options including, deep tissue massage, Swedish, and Hawaiian lomilomi. 

North Shore Ashiatsu Massage


Here at our North Shore Oahu Massage clinic in Waialua, we also offer Ashiatsu barefoot massage therapy. This session uses overhead bars that help your massage therapist use their full body weight as they stand on the massage table. The use of massage oil helps their feet to glide over their client's muscles and deliver a firm, broad amount of pressure. If you haven't tried Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage, you don't know what you are missing. 

North Shore Medical and Deep Tissue Massage


Here at Integrated Massage and Deep Tissue Therapy on the North Shore of Oahu, we specialize in deep tissue massage. We listen to our client's preferences when providing massage therapy and always try to meet their needs. If you want a custom-tailored North Shore massage session, then give the Haleiwa Massage Muse a call.  It is our goal to make massage therapy accessible to the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii.

Mahalo for your interest in massage therapy. Give me a call to schedule your massage appointment.

What to Look for in a Pregnancy Massage Therapist

There are many things to consider when getting a pregnancy massage. While the strokes can be similar to any typical massage therapy session, your therapist should be well-versed in pregnancy-related musculoskeletal conditions. It is always important that your massage therapist also is trained and certified in prenatal massage therapy.
Pregnancy and postpartum massage is offered at our North Shore Oahu Massage clinic near Haleiwa

Why is pregnancy massage certification important?


The biggest concern with pregnancy massage is that your therapist is knowledgeable of contraindications for massage. These are atypical circumstances where massage may be harmful to the health and well-being of the mother or baby. Although this situation is rare,  there are a few circumstances where massage should be avoided. If you have any irregular medical or pregnancy-related conditions, always make sure to discuss them before your massage session with your obstetrician and massage therapist. 

Prenatal massage certification is also important because it indicates that your therapist has been trained to best address the specific issues that pregnancy has on the body. For your comfort, your massage therapist should be trained on the proper positioning and bolstering throughout all three trimesters of pregnancy.

What type of pregnancy massage cushions are best?


While there are special massage cushions that enable pregnant women to receive massage in the prone (face-down) position, not every woman is comfortable laying this way. The best and most comfortable way to receive a pregnancy massage is not face-down, but in a side-lying position. This ensures adequate blood flow and circulation at all times. Not every body type is comfortable in a one-size fits all type of body cushion. While it may be tempting to try to lay face-down, it is often uncomfortable and places excess strain on the uterine ligaments.

Does prenatal massage cost extra?


At our massage clinic in Waialua, we do not charge extra for prenatal or pregnancy massage. We just charge our base rate which is $75 per hour of treatment. Our therapists have extensive training in pregnancy and postpartum massage therapy. 

When is the best time to learn newborn massage?


At Integrated Massage and Deep Tissue Therapy, we also teach newborn and infant massage to new parents and caregivers of infants. The best time to learn infant massage is not after your child has been born but beforehand. We encourage expecting parents to sign up for a private infant massage lesson before their expected due date. Because massage helps babies develop and grow, it is best to already have training before dealing with the stresses of parenthood. Sonia is a certified infant and newborn massage therapy instructor. 

Please give us a call with any questions or concerns. We love what we do and look forward to working with you soon!

Sonia
