What Massage Therapy Helps
Initial and Subsequent Visits
Massage therapy is an extremely versatile and practical treatment for many conditions. These include:
Initial visits begins with a one on one consultation between you and your therapist. During this time, you will discuss any areas of concern listed on your confidential patient form. This will be followed by a more specific discussion of the primary reason for which you booked your appointment. A full postural scan, muscle tests, range of motion tests and any relevant special testing may be done to help tailor your massage treatment.
The remainder of the time will be hands on. You will receive a 30 to 60 minute massage in your initial treatment. In this time, the primary area of concern will be the focus of the massage. As time permits, other surrounding involved areas or contributing factors may also be addressed.
Subsequent visits can be 30, 45, 60 or 90 minutes in length. This is determined by the severity of the problem at hand, the number of areas to be treated or simply the amount of time you request. Each subsequent treatment will begin with a couple minutes discussing how you responded to your last treatment, how you have progressed or changed since the last treatment, and what your current condition is.
The majority of the massage treatment will then be spent addressing the primary concern and again, as time permits, including any surrounding areas of concern and contributing factors or any new concerns that arose since the last treatment. There will be a few minutes reserved at the end of the session to show any relevant home care (stretches/ strengthening exercises) or discuss the need for ice/heat post treatment.
