TO OUR VALUED CLIENTS
For most Americans, the world of alternative or complimentary healthcare options is a new, unfamiliar, interesting, hope-inspiring, and confusing marketplace of choices. What we hope to do here is to provide you with some general information that will help you make informed decisions about your healthcare options and some specific information about our services.
We encourage you to be an informed, educated consumer who takes the ultimate responsibility for choosing your healthcare options. We are happy to provide you with any information we possess to help you reach this goal. We believe all legitimate healthcare options have something to offer; different is not necessarily better or worse, but sometimes merely different. The key is to choose the best option for you; that best option is the one that gives you the results you want while conforming to the practical needs, requirements, and limitations of your particular situation. We encourage you to ask questions and state your opinion about the healthcare services you receive anywhere.
What We Are Not
We are an on-going therapy program. We are not an emergency service. We describe our program as a 50/50 therapy; that means we provide our half of the program which is our best, 100% effort to help you with your problem. It also means that the other 50% has to come from you. As with everything in life, the more you put into it, the more you get from it. This means that half of the burden for your progress is your responsibility. Some people do not want this responsibility; some people do not want to participate in their own healthcare. We recognize this and that is one reason we say that this therapy is not for everyone. That is not a good thing or a bad thing; that is a personal choice. As we said at the beginning, we want to help you make the choices that will work for you.
POWER OF TOUCH MASSAGE
We are often asked, "How often and how long will I have to come?" You need to understand that your problem did not originate in an hour; it has not existed for an hour; and we cannot make it go away in an hour. Some of the variables involved in answering this question are: the nature of your problem; how long you have had this problem; your age and physical condition; and your goals for improvement. What we can say is that you should feel better after every session. Also, after 8 sessions or less you should know whether this therapy is working for you. We are always happy to supply you with client references and information on our education and experience. Unfortunately, because massage is based upon an energy exchange, we are only able to do a finite number of massages each week. We never tell you not to do anything your doctor orders. We never claim to treat or cure. We never manipulate or adjust you. We do our very best to help you with your problem. Our insurance specifically excludes claims resulting from communicable diseases and specifically excludes HIV/ AIDS. Therefore, we are unable to provide services to people in these categories. Also, please do not come (cancel your appointment with 24hours notice) if you have any contagious, short-term illness. This reduces everyone\rquote s exposure and is an expected courtesy. On extremely rare occasions, you may experience some very slight soreness and/or bruising the day after a session. Again, this happens infrequently and is a minor, usually one time, effect. Our therapy is for people who are willing/want to participate in their own healthcare. This means making a commitment to making your healthcare a priority. We are a drugless therapy; an alternative to pharmaceutically based healthcare.

THE BUSINESS SIDE
Any information exchanged during a massage session is private and strictly confidential. We have an on-going demand for our services beyond our ability to provide them. Therefore, please cancel your appointment 24 hours in advance, or you will be charged the full appointment fee. Please be aware that you reserve a specific time period. We do our very best to ensure that you do not have to wait for your appointment, and we are over 99% successful. Conversely, if you are late we cannot make subsequent clients wait, so your appointment will be finished at the designated time. We charge a set fee per session; depending upon your problem, a session will be from 30 minutes to one hour; longer sessions will be charged accordingly. In order to reduce costs, we do not bill. Payment is expected when services are rendered unless other arrangements have been made in advance.
We hope this has answered some of your questions. We look forward to helping you. Gary and Kathy Lescak
