What To Expect
What to expect at your first appointment
On the first visit, you will complete confidential health history as part of your assessment. Your massage therapist will assess your individual needs as well as other factors that may be contributing to your injury or condition. The RMT will develop a treatment plan with you to ensure you receive appropriate treatment. The treatment plan can be changed at any time and will be reassessed at an appropriate time. You have no obligation to undergo any part of a treatment. Your treatment will begin once you have given your informed consent. This involves setting realistic goals for treatment, discussing possible responses to treatment, and being informed of alternative care options.
Massage therapy can also be used as part of a preventative care program. This includes sports training, injury prevention, ongoing stress management and more!
Your massage therapist will require an overall picture of your current health and a detailed health history in order to design a treatment plan that’s right for you. If a massage therapist determines that your condition would be better treated by another healthcare professional, they will make the appropriate referral.
Please fill out our HEALTH FORM prior to your appointment.
Feel Better, Live Better
- Thorough hand hygiene practices (as always)
- Use of masks by practitioners and clients
- Pre-screening questions 24 hrs before an appt and again at the door
- Increased cleaning and sanitization protocols for all massage supplies and environment including massage table, pillows, oil bottle, portable speaker, doorknobs, light switches and taps
- Suspending the use of hydrotherapy (heat pads, table warmers, etc.)
We have also implemented a high quality air purifier (HyperHEPA Filteration Technology) for that extra protection.
The tiniest particles are also the most dangerous. Ultra fine particles (smaller than 0.1 microns) are so small that they can move through your lung tissue, into your bloodstream and then to any organ within your body. While most air filters claim to filter only particles larger than 0.3 microns, IQAir technology removes 99.5% of all particles down to 0.003 microns. When it comes to protection against the tiniest particles, IQAir is the proven choice.
