What To Expect

What to expect from a Massage Therapy Visit

Your initial appointment will begin with you filling out a confidential medical case history to establish your current state of health and ensure there are no contraindications to massage therapy. A private and confidential interview/assessment will be conducted by your therapist so they can fully understand your personal health care issues and needs.

Following the interview/assessment, the therapist will commence the treatment which you may be dressed or undressed & draped by a sheet. The treatment may include a discussion and demonstration of therapeutic exercises and homecare techniques.

Your treatment includes four essential steps:

  1. History and assessment.
  2. Postural scan and orthopedic assessment.
  3. Hands on massage and manual therapy treatment.
  4. Education and Home Care (including advice on ice or heat, stretching and exercise).
