The atmosphere of the treatment room is calm and quiet. Your privacy will always be respected and during the treatment you will be draped so that only the portion of the body being treated will be uncovered. You will never be asked to undress beyond your level of comfort and you will always have the right to accept or refuse treatment.
On your first visit you will be asked to complete a confidential case history form, which will be reviewed with you – this process may involve some testing and assessment. After consenting to the prescribed treatment plan, therapy can begin.
All adults, children and infants can benefit from massage therapy. Massage can treat or prevent pain and dysfunction arising from soft tissues or bones, as well as systemic conditions affecting circulation, digestion or general well-being. Book an appointment now or contact us today!
