Your First Visit with Us
If you’ve never experienced massage therapy before, chances are you have some questions for us.
What should I expect during my first appointment?
We will sit down with you to discuss your wellness history, your current health and any challenges you would like addressed such as an injury. We ask that you arrive approx. 15 minutes before your first appointment to ensure ample time to review your case.
Depending on the condition, we may ask you to allow a more detailed assessment to determine the best course of treatment. Working alongside you, we will develop a treatment plan that best addresses your individual needs now and into the future, if necessary.
Our wide range of treatment therapies support many different medical conditions, whether you have been injured in an accident, through sports or simply experiencing issues such as stress-related stiffness, workplace strain or many other ailments.
Please know that you are in charge of your treatment plan at all times, and we are here to guide you.
We may recommend you follow up your treatments with heat, ice therapy, stretching or other exercise, depending on the cause of your condition. We highly recommend you drink plenty of water in the 24 hours after your treatment to flush any toxins from your system.
Do I need to bring anything?
- If you have any documents supporting a medical diagnosis from a doctor, chiropractor or other wellness practitioner, this will be helpful in our assessment and developing a treatment plan.
- Any medical reports such as X-rays, CT scans, MRIs or other test results are also helpful.
- Documents from your health insurer to ensure your treatment is eligible for coverage and that part or all of your costs are reimbursed to you.
- Comfortable clothing are recommended as most treatments last minimum an hour. You also may need to partly undress depending on the area of your body (ie. back) we are working on. We have gowns and table sheets to ensure you are comfortable.
