FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- "Can you use the employee benefits offered by the employer?"
- ePassi's Well-being pass, Smartum's massage benefit and Edenred's massage benefit are suitable for paying for a massage. NOT suitable for payment of Kalevala bone-setting.
- "What is the difference between sports and classic massage? Which one should I choose when making an appointment?"
-When making an appointment, it doesn't matter which one you choose, because the price of the service is the same and the treatment visit is always tailored to individual needs.
Sports massage takes into account e.g. the athlete's training periods and sport requirements, and aims to shape the treatment to the athlete's needs.
- "Do you do trigger point therapy?"
- - In addition to massage, the treatment situation may include trigger point treatment. However, a treatment visit does not consist of just using one technique, but I go with whatever I feel is appropriate for the situation.
- "How do I get there?"
- - In front of the store there is a street parking option with a parking wheel. In addition, bus lines 77, 78, 79A/B and 71B pass by. From Tampere, lines 70A/B (get off at the stop "Nokia lukio". From the stop it's a walk of approx. 600m).
- "Can I work out the same day I have a massage?"
- If the treatment has been quite intense, it is recommended to leave the exercise of the treated area for the next day, unless it is a light exercise or an exercise of an area other than the treated area.
- "What do you need my personal data for? (e.g. social security number)"
- As a healthcare professional, a trained massage therapist is obliged to comply with healthcare legislation, which, among other things, defines the content of the patient document (Regulation 99/2001).
In short: Because the law so obliges and because we want to make sure that there is the right person at the table.
You can find more information in my patient register leaflet.

- "How often should I get a massage?"
- Experience has shown that if there is a symptom that you want to alleviate, then a course-like series of 1-3 visits, visits every 1-2 weeks, would seem to work. This is how you get the most out of massage.
