What to expect

Firstly you will be asked to describe the reason for your visit, you will then be asked a number of questions related to your health and fitness, occupation, lifestyle and medical history that could potentially identify any contraindications to treatment. All information gathered is for us to gain an understanding of your activities and condition to select the correct treatment plan for you.

You may also be required to under go some ROM (range of motion) and postural assessments.

For these assessments to be as accurate as possible we will need you to wear appropriate shorts and sports bra for females.

Following your consultation we will then begin your treatment, because this is a deep soft tissue massage it may feel sore and uncomfortable both during and after and depending on your treatment may cause some bruising, this is normal and is only temporary and usually extremely mild.
