What happens during a Massage Therapy treatment?
On your first visit you will be required to fill out a health history form. The time allotted for your treatment includes an interview, assessment, hands-on treatment and self-care recommendations.
Do I have to remove my clothes during the treatment?
Clothing removal is not essential but often beneficial for the treatment. Wearing a sports bra and shorts for women and shorts for men is recommended. This allows for easy, comfortable positioning and treatment options.
Do I require a Doctor’s referral?
A Doctor’s referral is not necessary for treatment, but may be required by your health care insurance provider for re-imbursement. Please check with your provider for details.
What kind of massage therapy do you do?
The techniques that I use focus on skeletal alignment, fascial restrictions and appropriate movement. The treatment is gentle yet deep and all areas of the body may be addressed. Descriptions of the techniques can be found in the Treatment section of this website. These techniques will continue to evolve as I go through my training in Osteopathy.
What if I am not comfortable lying in a certain position?
Your comfort is important and treatments can always be modified. You can be lying on your stomach, your back, your side or sitting up, depending on your comfort.
