Reimbursement by health insurance companies
I am a member of the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Soma Therapeuten (NVST; Dutch Association for Soma Therapists). Soma therapists are therapists who work with the body when treating a client. Examples of these treatment methods are Shiatsu and Foot reflex zone massage.
All NVST therapists have completed a thorough study, and frequently attend further training courses so that quality is guaranteed. In addition, all the members have a Certificate of good conduct. Continuing education, peer supervision, search, and complaint and disciplinary measures form major parts of the quality policy.
Health insurance companies will reimburse the treatments by NVST therapists. On www.nvst.nl/zorgverzekeraars you can find an overview of all the reimbursements per health insurance company.
For more information, you can get help from your health insurer; when asking questions you can provide the following information:
