At the beginning of your very first session our massage therapist Barbara will ask you to fill out a detailed intake form, which will allow her to treat you professionally.
This is necessary in order to check your health status and to see whether you have a condition which could contraindicate massage, dry needling or cupping of a certain area of your body or even overall.
Your answers will indicate to her which of your muscles need treatment the most. They will also show her which areas can better tolerate being massaged than others.
At each subsequent session Barbara will need a brief, verbal update on these questions in order to adjust the massage according to your progress.
After assessing your situation and discussing your condition, Barbara will give you an overview of the massage treatment she thinks best for you.
Next she will leave the room for a short period to give you time to undress the parts of your body needing treatment. You will never be required to remove underwear, and your privacy will be respected at all times. You will be given a towel to cover yourself on to the table.
When the massage is finished, she will leave the room again to give you time to dress.
Please be aware that all massages are strictly non sexual. Any suggestive statements or actions will result in immediate termination of the session, with the client liable for the full cost of the session.
