First Visit

On your first visit you will be asked to complete a confidential health history form. Your therapist will go over your health history with you and discuss any concerns that you may have and provide a treatment to suit your personal needs. In some cases we may suggest exercises or hydrotherapy (hot or cold applications) for you to do at home, yielding faster and more effective results.

The massage is normally one hour in length, this allows time to work on a specific area as well as any areas that may have compensated for an injury, and gives you and your body time to adjust and relax. Half hour and hour and a half appointments are also available.

During the massage you will be fully covered, only the area being worked on will be undraped.

The massage techniques used will vary from basic Swedish massage to more specialized techniques such as frictions or trigger point therapy; dependent upon your needs.

We want your massage experience to be a positive one. If there is anything you are not sure about - please ask. Questions are always welcome.
