Frequently Asked Questions
Telephone 07770 422842 for an appointment. An initial consultation will take about an hour during which we will work through some basic details about you and your past health, followed by a physical assessment of your current condition. Any areas of pain or restricted movement can be discussed at this stage and targeted for immediate treatment.
All treatments are carried out under strict clinical conditions. At both clinics there are up to eight practitioners and receptionists on duty at various times. Should you require a chaperone then I am happy to provide one, but would need to be advised in advance. All our rooms are climate controlled and you are left in private to disrobe ready for treatment. Large towels are provided and used during treatment to keep you covered and warm.
It is recommended that ladies wear appropriate underwear or bikini to allow full access particularly to the spine. Men often prefer to wear briefs or swimming trunks. Massage does require access to various parts of the body as sometimes the source of the pain is not necessarily where the pain is felt.
Therapists say there is good and bad pain. You may arrive with bad pain, and the treatment is then unlikely to be without further discomfort in order that the problem be resolved. It is not however the intention to inflict considerable unnecessary pain on clients, so treatments can be tailored to suit your own pain thresholds, and you will be asked at all times during treatment whether you are comfortable.
Probably yes, you will. I will do all I can to make clients more comfortable and often recommend ice or heat packs immediately following treatment. There may well be pain the next day, but then most clients then say the same - the improvement on the second day was amazing.
I hope not. It really depends on your problems. Some people simply need a course of 3 or 4 visits over a few weeks and perhaps very little more. Others benefit enormously from regular treatments.
