What to expect from your session .
Your first visit will always begin with a detailed consultation. From August 2020 all pre treatment consultations will take place online or by telephone. It will be 30 minutes session (and will be booked separately from your treatment booking at no additional charge) where you can discuss your reasons for booking, a general/medical history health questionnaire as well as COVID19 questionnaire.
If you are currently under the care of a medical practitioner it is important to let me know as you may need to seek the advice of before proceeding with any complimentary health treatments.
Based on this information I will tailor a planned treatment according to your needs. This is very a much a discussion between yourself and I as a therapist.
Once agreed you will be shown where you can get changed with towels/ coverings provided and how to make yourself comfortable on the table. During the current COVID19 pandemic these instructions will be quite specific and details can be found here
If you are having a chair massage there will be no need to undress as the massage will take place through clothing.
It is important to note that at no time will you be naked on the table. You will remain covered at all times and the only part of your body that will be exposed is that being massaged at the time. Your comfort and feelings of safety are paramount.
What not expect.
Please note that the service I provide is strictly professional and grounded in a therapeutic and remedial approach. There is nothing sexual or sensual to the treatment.
