New to Massage Therapy? Here’s what you can expect on your first visit to Agricola Holistic Health.
The first step towards feeling better, is completing a Health History form. Your health history form, provides your Massage Therapist with very important information regarding your past and current health, as well as any safety precautions or contraindications to your treatment.
The Second step, is a thorough orthopedic and postural assessment. This portion of your intake gives us information on muscular/nerve and or skeletal imbalances/conditions, that could be the root of your pain, tightness and discomfort. After your Massage Therapist has carefully reviewed all information gathered, they will discuss their findings and create an appropriate treatment plan for/with you, based on your wants/needs and clinical findings.
Once you and your RMT have agreed upon a treatment plan, your RMT will leave the room allowing you to disrobe to your comfort level and get on the table, between the linens. Only the specific body area being treated will be uncovered. Your RMT will check in with you during your massage treatment to ensure that the pressure is comfortable. If at any point you have any questions, please let your therapist know. After all, it’s your treatment and we want you to have the best treatment possible.
After your Massage therapy treatment, take your time getting up and dressed. Your RMT will give you homecare guidelines to extend the benefits of your massage and aid in improving overall muscular and skeletal function.
Depending on the nature of your treatment, you may feel slight muscle tenderness for a day or two after your massage. After your massage, it’s best to drink plenty of water, take a hot bath, and relax. Enjoy your healthy muscular state!
