What to expect at your first appointment
When you come for your first appointment I will ask you about
the problem that is concerning you
you and your lifestyle in order that I can understand potential reasons for your pain more fully.
I will take a detailed history of your condition before examining the area affected. Please wear or bring suitable clothing so that we are able to carry out a thorough examination:
For neck, back, hip, knee and ankle conditions please ensure you wear underwear, and wear or bring shorts if you wish to wear them during the assessment.
For shoulder or elbow conditions women please wear a bra or vest top, men can wear a vest top or no top.
For hand conditions please wear a t-shirt shirt or short sleeved blouse.
Please bring a list of current medication as this may affect both your condition and the way in which I then treat you.
You are welcome to bring a friend or relative with you both for your own comfort, or to jot things down for you to remember at a later date.
A brief history will be taken, then the massage will be carried out ensuring that your modesty is maintained at all times. For aromatherapy appointments, oils will be blended with you prior to treatment.
