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