What to expect from your first visit
I will give you a short intake form to fill out that includes a brief medical history, your current issues and your goals. Next, we will chat about your issues and precisely where your pain or pains are. I may ask you to do some movements to show your range of motion and to help better identify your problem areas.
It is recommended that your first session be at least 90mins. Sessions typically last 1-3 hrs
After that we will get to work on relieving your pain and dysfunctions. The format for clinical bodywork is much like a regular massage you may have received at a spa, but the work is quite different.
This work is slow, patient and not painful. I work with my clients to find the perfect amount of pressure to release fascial and muscular restrictions that cause chronic pain. The work is very targeted. For instance: if you come in with a shoulder issue, most likely all we will work on are problems pertaining only to the shoulder.
It is recommended that your first session be at least 90mins. Sessions typically last 1-3 hrs.
After we are done, I may give you some stretches or movement to help keep you out of pain. I will also do my best to tell you on what I’ve noticed that could be causing your current problems. It’s important to know what’s going with your body, and I hope to demystify that for you. I will be in touch within 3-4 days after to see how you are doing. My goal is first and foremost to get my clients out of pain. After all, it’s my absolute favorite thing to do!
