Manual therapy is one of the oldest and most sought-after forms of physical therapy. Whether you are seeking treatment for a chronic health condition, recovering from a recent injury, or simply looking to eliminate stress and promote relaxation, the services provided by our Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) may exactly what you need.
This is my first massage treatment – what can I expect?
If you are feeling a bit nervous about your massage don’t worry – this is perfectly normal. Remember always that you are in charge of your massage. If at any time you feel nervous, have questions, or would like to stop the treatment, please do not hesitate – we are here to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
A typical first massage will take place as follows:
- Before having to change, you will first have a meeting with your therapist to discuss your health history and the reason you are looking for massage treatment. You will be asked to fill out a health history form in order for the therapist to provide the best and safest treatment possible.
- After the assessment and you give your consent to start treatment, the therapist will leave you alone in the massage room to change. You can choose to take your undergarments off if you wish but they usually do not interfere with the treatment. You can then lay down on the bed, covering yourself with a sheet provided by the therapist and wait for him/her to return.
- Remember that you are in no way obligated to talk with your therapist during your massage and that asking for a ‘quiet’ massage is absolutely normal.
