Most initial appointments whether for massage or rehab require an assessment of the joint and surrounding area. We have both male and female therapists so if you have a preference please make this clear when you book.
Following assessment, we will discuss with you the diagnosis of your injury, the goals you will work towards together and your treatment plan. The initial appointment will usually include your first treatment but this is subject to time. Your second and subsequent appointments will consist of a discussion of your progress, your treatment and any direction for home exercises given.
Depending on the location of your injury or massage you may be required to remove some items of clothing. During massage, clients are covered with a towel and only the part of the body being worked on is exposed.
Injury rehab sessions may require a posture analysis or a study of a particular joints biomechanics for example, seeing your knee as you walk. If you are unsure of what to wear or bring with you please discuss this with Laura prior to your appointment.
