Insurance should cover more holistic procedures
It was encouraging to read the article in the March 4 Refresh section supporting my belief that massage has significant health benefits. For many years, I have been receiving massage therapy because of my dad’s insistence that it’s necessary for good health and a sense of well-being. He was a strong proponent of healthy lifestyles long before they were popular in mainstream society practices.
As I get older, I can attest to its benefits to my overall good health. The article articulated what I believed for many years through my own experience. My question is: Why are insurance companies not covering more holistic procedures such as massage? I also hope the medical community embraces the benefits and recommends massage to its patients.
