I have been blessed to have found Camillus Massage Therapy. I see Chris every two weeks now and the therapeutic work he has done on me, has been outstanding. I have a total of seven herniated discs in my back and neck and will undergo surgery on my back in November of 2014. Additionally, I have stenosis of my discs, Fibromyalgia, arthritis and am almost always in terrible pain, in spite of being pretty fit. Their facility is very simply decorated, immaculate and in short - just what I was looking for! I have been getting professional massage for over 20 years now and I have been fortunate to have had some great therapists along the way - but Chris is hands down the best for my needs. He combines a great combination of deep-tissue, assisted stretching and relaxation/breathing work. I will absolutely NEVER go anyplace else against a massage...
I have suffered for many years with back, neck and shoulder pain with Fibromyalgia to top it all off. Three fusions and four shoulder surgeries in six years has been a long, painful road. Today was my first massage with Chris, it definitely won't be my last. I feel amazing! I have had massages before, but none as thorough as he performed. His expertise and knowledge is impeccable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for relief.
I have fibromyalgia and degeneration of the spine and neck, along with some arthritis...(I know right!) Anyway, I went to see Chris after he reached out to me about an article I posted on facebook about fibro. I have been to other massage therapists, all great people!!! But I have to say, Chris is pretty amazing!!! He was very informative about my problem areas and in general; informative about treatment. I feel SO much better!!! Thank you Chris!!! See you soon!!!
I work at a job where I do alot of bending and lifting and looking down which really puts stress on my back and especially my neck. I've had 3 visits with Chris now and I feel absolutely amazing. I've been waking up with headaches alot lately and after my most recent massage with Chris I am waking up feeling relaxed and refreshed with no headaches. I definently recommend you go to camillus massage therapy Chris is amazing at his job!
Great massage in a comfortable setting. This establishment has a small but inviting waiting area. My massage therapist was Renee. I was taken to one of three very intimate and relaxing therapy rooms. Decor was tasteful yet subtle. The music and lighting were both very calming. My massage therapist Renee had great technique, and gave me a wonderful, relaxing one hour massage. Perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon!
The quick answer is no. While some premier insurance policies do offer a rider for massage therapy, their rules for payment make it impossible for us to bill. We can, however, provide you detailed notes and a statement of charges so you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
If you have a Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account, you can use that to pay for your massage services at Camillus Massage and Inside Edge Sports Massage if you have your debit card with you. If you do not have a card, we can provide you a detailed billing statement to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement.
No. At Camillus Massage and Inside Edge, we provide high quality, professional body work. We do not offer facials, hot stones, waxing, or any other associated services. We do not mean to diminish the value of those services to people seeking them, we are simply not in that business.
Generally, no. In a very rare instance, a therapist may be at the office and not with a client. For example, if a client was a no show, or if there was a small gap between clients. We do not employ a receptionist, which makes greeting walk-ins impossible. We can, however, very often provide same day appoints. Check our schedule page to see what is available.
We can provide travel services to clients in select situations. Each request is subject to authorization by the owner. In the event of it being authorized, there is a $25 travel charge added to the cost of the massage.
Absolutely. Packages are available for massages of 60 min or longer and are a Buy Five, Get One Free. There are some times, generally around holidays, when we offer different short term options. Be sure to follow us on social media to be aware of these specials.
