SESSION AVAILABILITY

Day and Evening appointments - Monday | Wed | Fri

Saturday appointments (one weekend per month)


WHAT WILL HAPPEN ON MY FIRST VISIT?

You will be asked to arrive about 10 minutes early to your first session. This is to complete a consultation with your therapist to have a clear understanding of your medical history and what type of treatment you would like. Wear loose fitting clothing and bring warm outdoor clothes if you have a session during cold weather to maintain the benefits of the massage for as long as possible. Also bring a bottle of water with you.


WHAT WILL HAPPEN ONCE THE SESSION IS FINISHED?

The Therapist will discuss with you after care and home care advice. You may feel drowsy after a treatment so feel free to ground yourself in the waiting area by walking and sitting. Please take care when travelling home and plan to relax for the rest of the day if that is possible.

WILL I NEED TO UNDRESS COMPLETELY?

Depending upon the treatment you chose. You will be asked to remove your outer clothing down to your pants. Your modesty will be preserved and your body will be covered at all times by towels - the only areas that will be exposed shall be the part that is being massaged.

WHY MIGHT I NEED MY DOCTOR’S APPROVAL?

Which treatment you chose combined with certain medical conditions might require GP approval before massage. For example cardio vascular conditions, forms of arthritis, oedemas, pinched nerves and certain pregnancy conditions.
There is a list of conditions outlined in the consultation form however this is not exhaustive please speak to your therapist if you are at all unsure.

WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE THE PRESSURE?

Some people have sensitive skin, allergic reactions, are very ticklish or prefer a firm massage.
We agree a Massage Contract (agreeing outcome, depth and pace) before the session starts which includes a safety contract so if I'm working too deeply just tell me and I'll adjust the treatment accordingly.


DO I NEED TO TALK DURING THE SESSION?

No - this is your time to switch off - obviously if you ask me a question I will answer you. If you have booked a trigger point session then you will be asked to work together to confirm whether there is referred pain, whether the pain is reducing / releasing and what scale the trigger point pressure is.


CAN I EAT OR DRINK BEFORE / AFTER A SESSION?

Only a light meal 1 hourbefore or after a session (or 2 if it is a larger meal).

Heavy fatty foods can leave you feeling uncomfortable. Alcohol consumption or

un-prescribed drugs are not appropriate pre or post treatment.


WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

Please ensure you drink water to flush your body system.Toxins within the muscle tissue are released into the lymph system and will travel to your kidneys to be passed out of the body. Help dilute this affect with regular water consumption - slow and steady.

Up to 48 hours after the massage you might feel the need to urinate frequently, bowel movements, have a headache, thirsty or feel sleepy. If you have booked a Medical Massage session you might feel your muscles sore in the following 24-hours where they have been worked and you might also feel flu-like symptoms.
Tell your therapist as this will be recorded on your personal file.


IS MASSAGE ALWAYS THE BEST OPTION?

There might be occasions where the therapist may recommend and refer you onto another specialist practitioner for further work. However, the therapist will discuss this with you .
