Initial appointment


Your initial appointment will entail a discussion about current conditions, injuries, health history and your treatment goals. A health history form will be emailed to you prior to your appointment for completion or can be found at the link on the right of this page. There may be a need for movement assessments or orthopedic tests to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you. It is a good idea to wear nonrestrictive clothing for the assessment (eg. shorts and t-shirt or activewear).


Following the consultation and assessment you will be asked to remove clothing and jewelry that may be in the way of the treatment and lay on the massage table either face down, on a side or face up and cover yourself with the top sheet. Most of the time people undress down to their underwear, if you are uncomfortable with this please ensure you mention this during the consultation/instructions and the therapist will do their best to accommodate this request while still offering the most effective treatment possible (please note sometimes this can restrict the treatment given but your boundaries will always be respected).


During the treatment you will remain covered with the top sheet in any areas that are not being worked on at that time and areas are only uncovered to be worked on. The sheet will be draped to ensure clear boundaries and modesty. When treatment is required on the gluteal muscles the draping and underwear may be moved on an angle to accommodate this work. 

If at any time you feel uncomfortable with any part of the treatment please do say stop. We will always respect your boundaries and are happy to adjust how we are working to continue the session that you feel comfortable with or stop the session all together. Remember this is your session. 


Follow up appointments


Depending on your specific needs it may be recommended to book follow up appointments. This is highly dependent on your situation, there is no perfect time period for follow up appointments and often it is more about understanding how to do what is best for you. Often it is recommended to see how you feel following the treatment allowing a little time for your body to relax following the treatment and implement any homecare advice. 


Following the your treatment you may notice some changes, these maybe asked about at your next appointment, any information about changes can be important. If you are not reporting improvement within a reasonable timeframe for your situation and advice of homecare is followed, we will refer you to other health professionals to ensure you are getting the best treatment for your needs. 

We are here to help you achieve your goals and as such this often requires some suggested changes in your day to day life. We aim to tailor these to your life and situation so they are manageable for your everyday life. If these suggestions aren't working for you please let us know so we can adjust or make changes for you.
