Fara Receives Prenatal Massage Certification

Fara Maniaci, Massage Therapist at Northern Rehab, completed a continuing education course for prenatal massage through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. Prenatal massage can be done in all three trimesters. As the pregnancy progresses body positioning can be adjusted to accommodate the mother's changing body and the majority of the work focuses on bringing relief to the extremities. Such accommodations include using a side lying position to work the back and hips, using Swedish massage techniques with modifications for each client.

Fara is a licensed massage therapist and enjoys offering massage therapy as well as co-treating patients with our physical therapists in our DeKalb Resource Parkway, DeKalb Lincoln Highway and Genoa clinics. She is interested in promoting wellness and implementing massage therapy as a great tool for the client who experiences chronic pain or tension. A script from a primary care physician is not necessary, therefore clients do not have to wait for approval from their insurance, nor are they limited to a certain number of visits to receive massage therapy. To schedule an appointment with Fara, please call us at 815.756.8524. 

Should I ask my doctor to refer me if I think I may need therapy?

Definitely. When you have a problem you think may be helped by physical therapy ask your doctor or give us a call and we will help you to determine if this is a problem that may be helped by physical therapy.

Your Right to Choose

The decision of where you go to receive treatment is
yours. If you have a specific therapist or practice you
would like to go to, you should let your doctor or
insurance company know this. Not all physical
therapists or practices are the same and the choice
of your provider is yours.
