Massage Therapy can be a qualified medical expense

Examples of conditions (physical & emotional) that qualify include:

  • Stress
  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain/Headaches
  • Arthritis 
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension 
  • Fibromyalgia 
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Anxiety/Depression
  • Pain Management

If you suffer from one of the above conditions (and who isn't stressed?), all you need to do to set up massage as a qualifying expense is pay a visit to your medical practitioner. Let him or her know that you have an FSA or HSA and you'd like to use some of your funds toward massage for treatment or prevention of your condition.


Your physician will need to provide three pieces of information on the prescription:


1. Medical necessity: why you need massage therapy (example: to relieve back pain)

2. Frequency: number of sessions per month (example: minimum of two sessions per month)

3. Duration: length of treatment (example: 12 months)


Bring your FlexCard (if you have one) to pay for your next visit. If you don't have a FlexCard, simply pay for our massages and turn in your receipts for reimbursement.
