What To Expect At Your First Appointment

  • If this is your first visit to our clinic you will be asked to fill out a short health history form.
  • If you have already had a chiropractic exam your massage therapist will consult the doctor on your case.
  • The massage therapist will direct you to a change room to undress in private for your treatment. Next you will enter the treatment room and get under the sheet on the table. The therapist will only uncover the area to be worked on. Therefore you can take off as much or as little of your clothing as you are comfortable with.
  • Your therapist will knock and enter the treatment room once you are ready.
  • During the massage it is important to give your therapist feedback. Good communication ensures you will receive appropriate pressure. Massage does not need to hurt to be effective. You should be able to breathe and relax during the treatment.
  • At the end of the session the therapist will leave the room, allowing you to go back into the change room to redress. The therapist will then re-enter the room to change the linens.

What to do after your Massage Therapy session:

  • Drink water – an extra glass or two will help continue the flushing process started by the treatment
  • Stretch – muscles loosened by the treatment will stay that way longer if they are stretched frequently, even hourly, over the rest of the day
  • Rest and relax – allow the treatment to take full effect
  • Ice or heat – you may feel some soreness or stiffness in the first 24-48 hours after treatment. This should dissipate but you may apply ice to tender areas or take a hot bath or shower to alleviate stiffness.

Effects of Massage Therapy on the body

Massage is known to:

  • Cause changes in the blood. The oxygen capacity of the blood can increase 10-15% after massage.
  • Affect muscles throughout the body. Massage can help loosen contracted, shortened muscles and can stimulate weak, flaccid muscles. This muscle “balancing” can help posture and promote more efficient movement
  • Affect the nervous system. Massage balances the nervous system by soothing or stimulating it, depending on which effect is needed by the individual at the time of the massage.
  • Enhance skin condition. Massage directly improves the function of the sebaceous (oil) and sweat glands, which keep the skin lubricated, clean, cooled.
  • Affect internal organs. By indirectly or directly stimulating nerves that supply internal organs, blood vessels of these organs dilate and allow greater blood supply to them.
