Most people when asked have no idea what their benefits consist of and yet they are paying into it from month to month. I encourage all of you to have a good look at what you are entitled to. Most plans cover Massage Therapy and Acupuncture, and some even cover other modalities such as Physiotherapy.
The best way to keep yourself healthy is to find those treatments that work for you. Sometimes you will get the most benefit from combining treatments. I also find that it helps to spread your benefits out and make them last longer throughout the year. My personal preference is massage therapy coupled with acupuncture, but everyone is unique and most find that combination that works for them specifically.
It is proven that those that get regular treatment are less likely to become injured throughout the year, than those that seek treatment only when they are in pain. This uses your benefits up quickly and it is never guaranteed that you will be feeling 100% better by the time those benefits run out.
So I encourage all of you to dig out your plan, dust it off and have a good look at what in it, and start to benefit from your benefits.
