What to expect your 1st Visit.
You will be given an email upon booking your 1st appointment. There is a link request at the bottom of your welcome email asking you to fill out your online health history and consents. It is important this is filled out prior to your 1st visit, as we need this information to be able to treat you safe and effectively. If you are unable to access this link, we can assist you upon your arrival at your 1st visit.
Every treatment starts with an assessment, to ensure we are working on a problem within our scope of practice. You will always be asked for consent prior to the treatment. Once treatment has commenced you will always have the right to modify the treatment or stop it at any time. During treatment, you will be asked for open communication with regards to pressure and comfort. If you do not communicate when the pressure is insufficient or excessive your treatment will be ineffective or painful; possibly harmful. The point of the treatment is to improve your range of motion, decrease your pain, promote healthy tissue and decrease tension and stress. Communication is the key to you getting your optimal results. If your condition is out of our scope of practice, you will be informed and referred to alternate care.
At the end of treatment you will be asked to carefully get off the table and get dressed while the therapist leaves the room and washes her hands. Once dressed the therapist will return to tell you what she found, how she feel the treatment went, and if she feels more treatments will be beneficial to you. At this time the therapist will give you home care consisting of hydrotherapy or remedial exercise that will help your condition. These activities are usually simple to implement throughout your day. By completing your home care regularly, you will lengthen the time between treatments and prolong the effects of the massage.
