Frequently asked questions
What should I expect on my first visit?
Your initial consultation will usually consist of some light paperwork, going over our packages and pricing as well as insurance information if applicable. Our Therapist will go through medical history and a physical assessment, as well as answer any question you may have regarding your treatment plans, goals, and outcomes going forward. These sessions generally will last between 30 and 60 minutes.
What should I wear for my first visit?
This will depend on the type of service you are receiving. If you are getting Physical Therapy, Assisted Stretching, or a Personal Training sessions then gym attire would be best. If you are getting a massage then anything that you are comfortable with will be fine. For any additional questions don't hesitate to contact us.

Do you accept Insurance?
Yes, we accept most PPO Insurances. Insurance coverage may vary, contact us for additional information.
Do I need a prescription from my Physician?
No. All 50 states allow Direct Access, which means that you can come directly to us. Only on very rare occasions will you need to see your Doctor first. All of this will be explained during your Initial Consultation. Don't hesitate to contact us for additional infomation.
How long will the sessions last?
Our sessions generally last between 45- 60 minutes depending on your needs. We never charge extra for addtional time or modalities needed during your session. Refer to our "Treatments" page for more information.
Will I be seeing a Licensed Practitioner?
Yes. All of our therapist are licensed by the State of California to provide you with excellent and appropriate care within their Scope of Practice. We have a Licensed Physical Therapist, Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant, Licensed Massage Therapist, and Certified Personal Trainers on staff.
Why should I choose to see an out-of-network Provider?
Because we are able to give 1 on 1 attention to our patients, allowing us the opportunity to spend more hands on time with them. We spend additional time with manual therapy, tissue work, stretching, as well as appropriate exercises for your specific needs, which means our patients can recover faster than traditional clinics. In-network physical therapy offices often have to treat up to 4 patients per therapist at a time. This requires them to use PT Aides in order to help the patients follow their "routine". Here at Total Motion we only have Licensed Phyical Therapists and Licensed Physical Therapist Assistants, or Practioners treating our patients, and we will never sacrifice our time with you in order to push more volume.
Should I expect to be sore after a session?
It depends on the injury and the treatment type selected for you. It is possible that during a Physical Therapy treatment or deep tissue massage session that you may experience some mild to moderate soreness. Every treatment we do is for the purpose of helping your body to heal itself. You should not feel too much soreness more than 48 hours after treatment in most cases.
