Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my first session last for?
Usually the first session will last 5-10 minutes longer as we need to go through assessments and questionnaire to understand your reason for seeing me.
Is massage always appropriate?
The simple answer is no. If I feel that your condition contraindicates with my treatment, I will either refer you on to what I feel is more appropriate for you.
Do I need to wear special clothing?
Generally I will treat you in your underwear, but you will have privacy getting changed and of course covered by a towel during treatment.
Will it hurt?
Sometime the deeper techniques can hurt a little, but I will try and keep it within your pain threshold. Sometimes the most effective treatments do not hurt at all. I will always communicate with you about the right amount of pressure for you and you should never be afraid of letting me know if I have applied too much or too little.
What if I fall asleep?
Generally I'm pretty cool with that, but usually it doesn't happen.
What if I am not comfortable getting a massage on my own?
Don't worry, you are more than welcome to bring someone with you.
Do I always have to book follow up treatments?
Not necessarily, but sometimes it will be advised. Especially with long term chronic conditions and injuries. Some clients see me on a weekly basis, others every 6 months and some only when they feel the need.
