A Little Canadian Health Care in the Heart of New York
Body Mechanics Orthopedic Massage in New York, heads up a manual therapy program based on the Canadian model for preventive care in response to rising heath care costs.
new york (I-Newswire) August 13, 2013 - With health care costs on the rise everyone is looking for ways to cut costs. In the coming mayoral election that will be one of the major issues. In Ontario Canada the Government pays for the majority of health care costs, and private insurance covers benefits for preventive care like massage.
Massage therapists in Canada are trained with double the standard time as their New York counter parts (2200+ verses 1000)and they are often put to work in hospitals or working with unions and workmen's compensation claimants'. The majority of massages in Ontario are to the middle class and paid by benefits, while New York City is known for its spas and Swedish massage. Canada is meeting their bottom line by investing up front before the injury happens, while here it is a luxury.
In Ontario Therapist are trained as medical professionals and are treated as such. They file insurance claims and are subject to the same laws as any nurse or doctor. While the focus of Orthopedic massage is on understanding injuries and matching treatments to need, Swedish massage focuses on a general circulatory treatment. In Ontario therapists have a place in the medical community that addresses the need for manual orthopedic work that deals in soft tissue injury, such as over use, sprains, strains, nerve entrapments, headaches and other postural issues. The treatment focuses on maintaining correct body function and avoiding costly surgeries.
One New York massage clinic has taken a similar rout with the standard Canadian treatment. Body Mechanics Orthopedic massage, located just across from Grand Central Station, offers comprehensive Orthopedic Manual therapy to every day New Yorker's.
The owner trained in Canada and worked in the Canadian health care system until returning home to New York in 2011, bringing with her a Canadian approach to massage care. This year she opened up 'Body Mechanics Orthopedic Massage' in order to deliver need based preventive care to the general public.
