During your first appointment at our clinic, we will review your current medical health and history. Our specialist will discuss with you any medical conditions you may have and the areas you are concerned about. If you are suffering from chronic pain, we will want to know the levels of that pain, what aggravates it, and what helps you feel better. All of this information helps us to customize a treatment plan that is right for you!
First, make sure you are currently in good health for a massage. If you think you may have the flu or if your skin is irritated with something like sunburn or poison ivy, it may be better to reschedule. Massage can also affect any current medications you are on, so make sure that is something you discuss with our doctor to ensure no dosage adjustments are needed.
We also suggest drinking plenty of water in the days leading up to the massage session and not to eat just before you visit our facility. You should also try to arrive on time. Rushing to get to an appointment only adds to the stress, and it will take your body longer to relax.
You will lie down on our massage table covered by a large towel. We want you to be as comfortable as possible so don’t hesitate to tell our therapist if there is an area you don’t want to be touched or if the room isn’t at a comfortable temperature. You are entirely in charge during the session so feel free to give our therapists as much feedback as you wish.
During most sessions, you will disrobe, so our therapists can access the part of the body they are working on. With that in mind, no breasts or genitals will ever be exposed. Only the area being worked on.
We will also play music during your sessions so be sure to tell our therapist the type of relaxing music you’d like to hear.
We find that if patients relax and let their thoughts go, they often get the most from a session. Be as open as possible to the process as you can and be sure to let us know if anything does not feel very comfortable. You should also remember to breathe, even if we are massaging a sensitive part of your body.
Finally, you should avoid tightening your muscles during a massage session as this is very counterproductive. If you have difficulty doing this, let our therapists know, so they can adjust the technique they are using
