I welcome both Returning and New Patients as I have recently returned to work after a prolonged absence. Please feel free to use the booking button below to schedule an appointment.
Due to COVID-19, all appointments are now suspended indefinitely. See the CMTBC statement in response to Dr Henry’s order dated March 21.
I care deeply about all my patients and my community and look forward to seeing you again and getting back to normal as soon as it is safe to do so.
You may wish to look to my resources and self care pages for links to information and online resources that are available and things you can do for yourself. Stay rested, exercised, hydrated, eat healthy and stay calm. If you haven’t tried mindfulness, meditation or t’ai chi or qigong, now is a great time to start – see the resources page for some starting points – there are lots of youtube programs and online classes. I will try to update these pages when I can.
For any questions including advice for self-care please do not hesitate to contact me (best by email to): wendy m rmt at g mail dot com.
Fragrances: Please refrain from wearing fragrances or other strong-scented body or hair products while visiting this office.
A Confidential Patient History Form is required for your treatment. Please download, print and bring with you to your first appointment or come a few minutes early to your first visit to fill out a copy at the office.
Cancellations: require 24 hours notice, or may be subject to a cancellation fee. Please be considerate of other patients and your therapist by giving us as much notice as possible of any cancellations. Sometimes we can get someone waiting in on short notice, so please always let us know (fee waived if space is filled).
Illness: If you are sick, there is no fee to cancel, so please be considerate of your therapist and other patients and reschedule your appointment. When you are fighting an infection we recommend rest, fluids and whatever immune support works best for you, in lieu of a treatment.
Payment: Cash, e-transfer and credit (Visa, Mastercard and Amex) are accepted for payment.
Insurance: Many private health plans cover Registered Massage Therapy. Please check with your insurer to confirm your coverage and any requirements they may have. You do not need a physician’s referral to see us, but your plan may require one for coverage. You will find your therapist’s College of Massage Therapists Registration number on your receipt — which your insurer requires for treatment coverage.
Wendy McLean is an Opted-Out practitioner under BCMSP, so you are required to pay for your treatment directly; billing to MSP is submitted for you and if you qualify under Premium (low income) Assistance , MSP will then reimburse you $23 per visit — usually in 2–3 weeks by mail.
Patients eligible for MSP Coverage under Premium Assistance will have 10 treatments per calendar year partially covered under their BC CareCard. This includes any combination of treatments from a Registered Massage Therapist, Physiotherapist or other supplementary health benefit (e.g. chiropractic, acupuncture, naturopathy and non-surgical podiatry). Please inquire with BCMSP directly to confirm your coverage under Premium Assistance if you are unsure about your coverage under this program.
