Prior to your treatment our massage therapists will talk through your problem areas and discuss how long you have been affected. They will ask you a few general questions regarding your current condition and your health history and they will look, and listen, for clues in order to provide an effective treatment plan, which seeks to treat the original biomechanical dysfunction, to aid in healing the cause of the disorder, as well as the symptoms.
This is your opportunity to inform the therapist of your expectations or of any specific requirements you may have. You are also encouraged to ask questions in relation to your condition or the treatment during this time.
The massage therapists at this centre are highly trained and have an excellent understanding of anatomy and physiology. They will adapt the techniques they use to best address your individual needs. You may have an injury or painful point that needs work; however, your therapist may asses that you need work on other areas in order to achieve the most effective outcome for your individual complaint or injury. Remedial massage aims to correct restore balance.
The techniques may be gentle or firm, deep or shallow, depending on what the condition requires. Please communicate with your therapist if you feel that the pressure applied is too firm or too light or if you start feeling cold etc.
Sometimes massage can cause slight discomfort if you have tender or tense muscles. You may also feel a little tenderness a day or so later. To ease these symptoms it is also advised that you keep up your water intake.
