On your first visit and before any treatment commences I will provide you with a basic medical questionnaire to fill out.
Once the questionnaire is completed we will then talk through what you want to achieve from your treatments and in the case of injury will establish a detailed case history of your complaint.
We will then run through a simple physical exam that will allow me to assess any postural issues and your general mobility.
If appropriate, I may at this stage need to refer you to your GP or another health practitioner as not all complaints can be improved through soft tissue massage.
The treatments that I provide are a combination of hands on soft tissue massage and remedial exercises. For treatments to be effective it is likely that you will need to remove some of your clothing so please ensure that appropriate underwear is worn.
Deep tissue massage can be an uncomfortable experience however one persons discomfort is another persons pain so it’s important that you provide me with feedback to allow me to understand how you are feeling at all times.
I will always be honest and open with you about what I can do to help and will provide you with a personal treatment plan that is specifically tailored to your needs.
