Frequently Asked Questions

Teenage Students Raising Hands

What should I wear for my appointment?

Something you would wear for a workout: Tank top, T-shirt or sports bra with loose fitting or stretchy shorts and athletic shoes. For some treatments we may request that you change into our specially designed treatment tops with velcro closure in the back. All of our clothing is washed after each use.

What if I forget my clothes?

We have tops and shorts you can borrow if needed. All loaner clothes and treatment tops are washed after each use.

Is Neurosomatic Therapy Painful?

Even though Neurosomatic Therapy is a very specific technique, it is adjusted to the patient’s pain threshold. There are two types of pain; therapeutic and non-therapeutic. Our aim is to find the perfect amount of pressure in order for your body to adapt to the pain threshold and a neuromuscular ‘release’ will occur.

Will I be sore after treatment?

It is common to experience soreness for 1-3 days following a NST session, depending upon physiological factors, hydration, and aftercare.

What should I do at home after treatment?

We recommend you drink plenty of water and avoid ice, heat or anti-inflammatory drugs which can impede the body's natural healing process.

What is your cancellation policy?

We understand that emergencies and illnesses arise and kindly request that you cancel your appointment 24 hours in advance. Give us a call or send a message and we will reschedule you. If appointments are repeatedly cancelled without 24 hours notice, the full price of your appointment will be charged.

What are your sanitation procedures and COVID-19 precautions?

We throughly sanitize the treatment rooms between patients. Sheets and face cradle covers are replaced and laundered and our functional gym area is sanitized with our gym-grade wipes after each use. Hand sanitizer is available at all times and nitrile gloves are used for intraoral treatments. Patients are not required to, but welcome to wear masks if they wish. Therapists will glady wear a mask at a patient's request.

What can I expect during my initial consulation?

The first appointment is 75 minutes to allow additional time for gathering information about your story and symptoms, as well as a full structural and gait analysis. You will also receive a hands-on treatment to get you started on your recovery right away. With a more detailed first initial consultation, we will get to the root of your concern sooner, resulting in fewer treatments overall.

Do you accept insurance?

No, we do not accept insurance. However, most patients find they get better faster with Neurosomatic Therapy and save money over the long run because we are focused on getting you better and not filling out insurance forms or restricting your treatment to the insurance company protocols. We do accept HSA (Health Savings Account) and FSA (Flexible Spending Account) for payment. Check with your plan administrator to determine if you need a doctor's referral for "medical massage".

What are your credentials and medical license?

We are Certified Neurosomatic Specialists, graduates of the Center for Neurosomatic Studies in Clearwater, Florida. We are Florida Licensed Massage Therapists, NASM Certified Personal Trainers and NASM Corrective Exercise Specialists. Nick Bologno holds a bachelor's degree from Florida Gulf Coast University.
