What to expect during your treatment.
Upon arrival you will fill out a health history form. The therapist will speak with you to determine the right kind of massage techniques for you and your condition. In the treatment room, the therapist will conduct a physical examination, focused on your main complaints. When it is time for your treatment, the therapist will explain how to get onto the table. You can remove whatever articles of clothing you are comfortable with. The lotion should not stain your clothing. During the massage your therapist will regularly check in with you on the pressure and your level of comfort. If you are ever uncomfortable, please speak up.
