Your First Massage Session
The session is split up into three parts, general health details, reason for today lastly assessment and massage.
1. General details-
This is to begin with your basic information, DOB, Sport/Activity levels and your GP etc. Then this moves on to any contraindications (reasons to adjust the massage) examples of these varicose veins, broken bones, allergies. The last bit of this is you then signing confirming your happy with what we've gone through and happy with the massage session to proceed
2. Reason for today
This is going over why you booked in with me today? What are your aches and pains? How long have you had it? Has it changed since then? Does it change over a 24 hour period.
These are just a few of the questions I will ask to get to the bottom of your aches and pains. This will help make me aware that you maybe suited for an injury rehab session (this may still have a massage element)
3. Assessment and Massage.
The last part is now the nitty gritty- I will assess your range of movement and muscular strength before the massage.
I will then start the massage and begin by doing lighter techniques to warm the area up, I will then move onto more deeper techniques all while checking with you the pressure and the technique is ok.
Hopefully now you have a good idea of what to expect from a massage with me- To book yourself in today click the link below
