On your first session, we will discuss your health history and determine what are your goals.
You will be properly draped and will confirm that the pressure is comfortable
We use our own blend of massage oils and cremes based on your health history.
If needed, topical gels and cremes are used such as Biofreeze, Tiger Balm and or Sombra in conjunction with the massage. These elements help allow the muscles to open up and relax.
If needed, a heating pad with a TENS unit will also be used directly on the problem area to allow the tightness to open up and to allow proper blood flow.
If mobility is limited, stretching is recommended.
Upon completion of your massage, we will do a complete postural evaluation and will discuss if proper ergonomics are being utilized at work, home, in the car and while sleeping.
Based on what was discussed and what was determined during the massage, specific exercises and or stretches can be recommended as homework until your next session.
If the treatment plan is followed through in conjunction with a regular Massage routine, the results will be amazing and you will be on the road to a more mobile, Pain-Free life.
