As we informed you in our previous newsletter, as of July 1, 2010 the 13% HST has been implemented into our fees. Please rest assured that our actual massage fees (the net cost before tax) remain the same.
We have always been committed to providing top-notch registered massage therapy services for a reasonable price. Our fees for massage services remain lower than the 2010 fee guideline recommended by the Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario (RMTAO) and are significantly lower than those at many spas in downtown Toronto. If you have insurance coverage and your insurance company has not yet adjusted the coverage amount (they often refer to it as the “reasonable and customary” fee per visit) with the implemented HST, now is a good time to talk to your adjuster and inform them of the new fee guideline issued by the RMTAO, which is $82.00 plus HST per one-hour visit.
For most of our clients, December marks the end of insurance year; therefore, many people try very hard to book as many appointments as possible before the year’s end. If you would like to spare yourself the stress of squeezing in several appointments in December, please consider scheduling your regular visits now to give yourself more time for shopping and fun during the holiday season.
