Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect at my first appointment?
- For your first massage session, plan on spending the first 5-15 minutes talking with the therapist about the medical issue. Have an idea of what hurts, where it hurts, when it hurts, and when it began. The therapist will also take a brief health history including current medications, allergies and surgeries. After that the therapist will suggest a plan of treatment and instruct you on what you need to do to get ready for treatment. After treatment, you and the therapist will work together to determine frequency and duration of future treatments and how progress will be assessed.
