Massage Therapy - What To Expect From Your First Visit

What to expect before your Massage Therapy treatment:

We ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes early for your initial appointment. This will provide you with enough time to complete our confidential health history form, to use the washroom and to have a drink of tea or water. You may also compete this form in advance by clicking here to print and bring it with you to your first appointment.

Your Massage Therapy appointment will begin by discussing your current symptoms and treatment goals. This information will help your therapist to determine the appropriate assessment protocols and to create a personalized treatment plan. Your Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) will then explain the massage process and answer any questions you may have about your condition or the course of treatment itself. In order to maintain your privacy, your therapist will then leave the room so that you may undress to your comfort level and get on to the table. Upon returning to the room, your RMT will provide you with a therapeutic massage that is specific to your individual concerns.

Your first visit will be scheduled for a minimum of 45 minutes in order to accommodate a comprehensive initial assessment.

What to expect after your Massage Therapy treatment:

Most people leave their massage therapy treatments feeling very relaxed. However if you received deep tissue work, you may experience slight tenderness that lasts for a day or two. We recommend that you drink plenty of water after your treatment in order to flush away any toxins that were released during the massage. Your therapist will also advise you of homecare activities that will help to decrease any discomfort and prolong the benefits of your massage treatment.
