We understand that there is typically some anxiety that comes with getting your first massage. You have unanswered questions that you may be afraid to ask so we will answer some of them here.
You will be required to complete an intake form to give your therapist enough background medical information to ensure that you may safely receive a massage. You will then be led to the treatment room and you and your therapist will discuss your symptoms and the treatment that will best serve your needs. The therapist will explain how to position yourself on the table and will leave the room while you undress to your comfort level and position yourself on the table under the linens and blanket. You are always covered so some choose to completely undress while others choose to wear underwear. Only the area being worked on will be undraped at any given time. The therapist will knock before they re-enter the room and will ensure you are comfortable. You may sleep if you choose. You will not miss the benefits of the massage if you sleep and we don't mind if you snore. For most people, it is the best sleep they may have had in a while. The therapist will let you know if you need to turn to a different position and will wake you before they leave the room. We suggest you get up slowly as some may be slightly dizzy. You may also stretch before you leave the room. You may need to use the restroom as massage helps release toxins. Your therapist will then answer any questions and discuss further treatment options, schedule future appointments if desired and receive payment. Some clients choose to tip their therapist but we prefer that you do not. We consider massage healthcare and you wouldn't tip your doctor.
Orthopedic Massage is a treatment of chronic pain and structural imbalances with emphasis on restoring pain-free range of motion throughout the body. It is designed to correct joint dysfunction and address chronic pain due to long-term problems. You will be required to complete a medical intake form but you will also be assessed for range of motion for the problem joint or area as well as pain levels. The treatment and assessment must be pain free so it is necessary that you communicate with your therapist at all times. Please bring shorts and a tank top or sports bra to wear during treatment. Most clients find that after their first treatment, their pain is greatly reduced or eliminated and their range of motion is increased. However, effective August 1, 2019, your orthopedic appointment includes a follow-up visit at no charge to modify corrective exercises if needed and reassess and treat any residual issue with that area. Schedule an upper body treatment or lower body treatment as a full body session may be too much for your nervous system.
