YOUR TREATMENT PLAN & FIRST APPOINTMENT
Before your first treatment, I will propose a personalized treatment plan based on an initial assessment and health history that usually takes about 10 minutes and is done on the first appointment. The assessment will consist of various tests to determine the condition of your muscles and joints and will help determine where treatment is indicated.
The assessment is a critical part of the massage therapy treatment to establish where dysfunction resulting from mobility movement restrictions or general health concerns are and how I can promote healing to optimize your health and long term wellness goals.
It's important to remember that treatment will not start until you have given your consent to work on any part of your body, regardless of where you are fully clothed, or partially covered with sheets or blankets. Your privacy will always be respected and your may withdraw your consent for treatment at any time, even during the treatment itself.
I will work with your level of pain tolerance during the treatment to make sure you are comfortable with the techniques, my pressure and location of the treatment on your body.
After the treatment, I will perform a quick reassessment in order to establish the results of the treatment and the efficacy of the techniques utilized.
