What to expect at your first visit.

General Information for Massage and Structural Integration Clients

If you need to fill out your Health History forms on arrival, please arrive 10 to 15 minutes before your appointment. You don't want to cut into your massage time doing paper work.

If you come and there's nobody to receive you at the front desk, please take a seat we will be with you shortly. If you need to fill out the paperwork there should be a clipboard on the desk for you.

Your massage therapist will meet you in the waiting area and take you into the therapy room.There you and the therapist will go over the paperwork with you and ask questions if needed. Please know you can ask questions at any time. You and the therapist will discuss what areas need to be worked on and sensitive areas consent will be filled out if needed. Your therapist will then leave the room to was hands and give you a moment to get on the table.

You can undress to your comfort level but skin on skin contact is best.

You will be covered with a sheet and blanket for your comfort and only the areas we work on will be undraped at that time. Your therapist will knock and ask if you are ready for her to enter. Please respond audibly or we will wait till we hear from you.

If you do not feel comfortable with what we are doing please let us know.  We want to make your experience as stress free as possible.

The saying "No pain no gain" does not apply to massage therapy and there is no need to work that deep at any time during a visit.  If you like deeper pressure please let us know and we will do so in a safe way. We are trained and  well versed in how much pressure we need to get a positive outcome for you.

We are looking forward to meeting you and making your visit a good experience, therefore we ask that you communicate with us so we can serve you best.

 

 

Specifics for Structural Integration Clients

 

Please note that the first appointment will be 75 minutes - the first 15 minutes being a free assessment.   

After the first session the Structural Integration Sessions lasts approximately one hour.

Please be advised that you will be required to undergo 10 treatment sessions. 

You can book once a week for ten weeks or once a month for ten months or anything in between, it is important to stay within these parameters to ensure an optimal outcome. 

 

Each session has a specific protocol and takes about an hour, so please be on time for your appointment. We are not able to reduce the treatment time.

What to wear

Wearing the same "viewing clothes" at each session is preferred.

We ask that you wear “viewing clothes” which will consist of one of the following:
For women Yoga shorts (mid thigh) and a sports bra, underwear and bra if you are comfortable or 2 piece bathing suit
For men Briefs, shorts. Shorts need to be stretchy and mid thigh length.

You will be up and down off the table and moving around during the sessions so make sure your clothes are comfortable and supportive where needed.

Before and after photos will be an option. If photos are taken you will stand in front of a postural grid in your "viewing clothes".

Seeing your own changes will be very motivating and uplifting.

We will start with taking the Before pictures ( if wanted) then do Session 1 where we start with a functionality and awareness assessment. Then we will take After pictures after every sesson and review your changes and go over the homework for the session.  The homework is to re-pattern the nervous system and lengthen and move the body in a structured way.
