Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect?

During your first visit the Massage Therapist will complete the information gathered upon your arrival at the centre. If appropriate, discuss with other practitioners what treatment you have already received and your progress so far. The Therapist will continue with an examination and request your consent to begin treatment.

Treatment will be conducted in a safe, warm and private environment. The type of treatment will depend upon:

–  The complaint or injury.
–  Your requirements, that is for therapeutic or relaxation purposes
–  Whether it is before or after a sports event.

How much time do I need to allow?

On your first visit to the Massage Therapist a one hour appointment will be needed. This is important because the therapist will need to discuss and assess your health and condition to determine what type of massage is most suited to your needs.

The time allowed for subsequent consultations will be dependent on the Therapist’s findings and your needs.

Will the massage be painful?

Muscles that are unhealthy by way of overuse, misuse or trauma, may be painful when massaged. They may also feel tender following the massage. This tenderness may last for several hours and in some cases, days. As the muscle begins to heal and become healthier, less pain is associated with the massage. With relaxation massage techniques there should be little or no pain.

How often do I need to see a Massage Therapist?

This will depend on your healing ability and the nature of your injury and/or condition. Your Massage Therapist will develop a care plan that suits your own health and maintenance goals. If you are also having Chiropractic Care this plan will be developed in consultation with your Chiropractor.
