Types of Treatments

What to Expect in your First Visit

Upon arrival, clients are asked to complete an intake form that allows the therapist to begin the evaluation process. The client is directed to the therapy room to be interviewed and any pertinent medical records are reviewed.  Then a series of orthopedic and/or kinetic tests are performed to fully determine to plan of care to be implemented.

The therapist then leaves the room while the client undresses to the point at which they are comfortable and lays down on the massage table under a cover sheet. The therapist reenters the room shortly thereafter.  Treatment per the plan of care is performed and may utilize a number of modalities to include: deep soft tissue manipulation, trigger point therapy, Muscle Energy Technique (MET), hydro/cryotherapy, sports massage techniques and/or Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). The treatment is concluded and the therapist steps out of the room while the client redresses.  A home exercise program may be reviewed and implemented following treatment.

Increasing water consumption is highly recommended following all treatments as it helps the body flush out any accumulated materials in the muscles which were released during the massage otherwise, they might build up, causing muscle aches and soreness after a massage.  Always let the therapist know of any increased soreness following each session so adjustments can be made to future treatment plans.
