Partnership Bridges Gap Between Wellness Providers, Patients Requiring Therapeutic Body Work and Qualified Massage Therapists
BOYNTON BEACH, FL (November 30, 2005) — BODY WELL, LLC, a provider of managed massage therapy services, announced today an agreement with Medical Wellness Consultants Inc., a marketing services agency for the medical and wellness community, that will enable wellness providers such as doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists and fitness trainers to conveniently refer their patients and clients to a single source for professionally managed massage therapy services.
Medical Wellness Consultants represents numerous health care providers that often prescribe or recommend quality professional massage therapy services for their patients and clients. Given that most massage therapists work independently, wellness providers have found challenges in retaining qualified independent massage therapists on an as-needed basis. BODY WELL offers a solution to this problem by managing a large pool of therapists that can be made available as needed. This approach also simplifies billing, compensation and other management issues inherent in dealing with an assortment of independent therapists.
“Since establishing a partnership with Medical Wellness Consultants, we have been overwhelmed by the interest from the wellness community,” remarked Dan Melmed, Owner of BODY WELL. “With demand for therapeutic massage on the rise, there is a real need for a professionally managed service like BODY WELL’s that providers can depend on for a comprehensive massage therapy solution.”
Robin Lipnack, President of Medical Wellness Consultants noted, “For months and months my clients were imploring me to find them a reliable go-to source for massage therapy. I was very pleased to finally discover BODY WELL, which is perfectly suited to these clients’ needs.”
BODY WELL primarily provides services in patients’ or clients’ homes, although arrangements can be made to provide services in other private facilities. Depending on the provider, BODY WELL accepts payment directly or works under the supervision of a physician to perform services paid through insurance coverage.
BODY WELL welcomes anyone seeking professional massage therapy in a home, office, hotel or other private location. BODY WELL also works with residential community associations, fitness centers, health care providers and other private facilities seeking a managed massage therapy solution.
