INITIAL VISIT

 

Please book 60 minutes.  This gives us ample time for assessment, treatment and to discuss follow-up appointments (if needed) and homecare etc.
    
Prior to your visit, please fill out our standard health history intake form.  These forms are available on our website (below), the on-line booking site or at the clinic.   If you've been in a car accident or have an open ICBC claim, we have a motor-vehicle accident form to fill-out at the clinic.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT AT AN APPOINTMENT

A session usually starts with a brief interview and some hands-on and visual assessment to ensure that the safest and most effective treatment occurs. Once a treatment plan is established, the therapist will leave the room so you have privacy to undress to your level of comfort that is suitable for the treatment.  Your comfort and privacy are of utmost importance to us.  Professional draping is used at all times.

Treatment is performed with the client lying down or seated comfortably.  Depending on the techniques used, a hypoallergenic, organic oil or lotion will be used on your skin. Other techniques such as myofascial release and craniosacral therapy do not require oil. Your therapist can discuss any treatment techniques you might have questions about.

Pillowing is used for maximum client comfort.  We have a pregnancy cushion which enables women to lay face down and on their sides safely for prenatal massage.  After the session your therapist will discuss home-care suggestions for the purpose of integrating the work of the treatment. A treatment plan, such as when to re-book and for what duration will be discussed at the end of treatment.
