WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT ON MY FIRST VISIT?
The first time you visit the clinic, you will be asked to complete a confidential health history form to ensure massage is safe for you. Afterwards the therapist will begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas you would like worked on, if there are any conditions needing to be addressed and to determine if massage is a beneficial therapy. After discussing your treatment plan and obtaining consent, you will be instructed on how to position yourself on the table at which point you will be left alone for a few moments to get yourself ready. It’s very important to communicate clearly what you want/don’t want with your RMT. Please be sure to ask for more/less pressure during treatment if you need to. After your massage, you may be shown exercises or stretches designed to help you maximize the results of your treatment. You and your therapist will then discuss a treatment plan for follow up, if it is necessary.
Please arrive 15 min early so you will have time to fill out the paperwork.
