When you first contact me by phone or by email, I will ask you to give a brief description of your reason for wanting a massage so that we can make sure this is the right treatment for you and your condition. If I feel it would be more appropriate to see your GP, or an Osteoptath for instance, I will let you know at this point. Also if you have a fever, heavy cold or are in an acute state of injury this should not be treated with massage.
Your First Appointment
Your first appointment will be approximately one hour long. We will go through your medical history, making notes of any significant injuries, accidents or operations. I will also ask you about the health of your parents and siblings and whether you are currently taking any medication.
I will ask you to dress down to your underwear and give you a postural assessment which may include taking your affected joint(s) through their full range of movements and carrying out appropriate tests. Discussing my findings with you and together discussing the kind of treatment that would be of the most benefit to you.
Once this has been completed, you will receive a massage treatment followed by a chat on how your condition responded to the massage and what further needs to be done.
I may give you rehabillitation exercises or stretches to do at home that might help improve your posture and assist with getting you back to full function without pain.
