Please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out your intake forms. You may also print and fill them out beforehand, if you prefer.
Your RMT will conduct a brief health history, verbal consultation and physical assessment to gain an understanding of your condition and your reasons for seeking massage therapy. This may take up to 15min to complete and is included in your total treatment time. This initial assessment is required for all new patients as per our professional guidelines. If possible, please wear loose fitting or stretchy clothing to your appointment to aid with the physical assessment.
Treatment may include a variety of techniques within the RMT’s scope of practice. If you have had massage therapy in the past, let your RMT know what techniques were effective/not effective or what you enjoyed/didn’t enjoy. We are here to make sure you have a comfortable and enjoyable experience so please don’t hesitate to voice any concerns or personal preferences. Your RMT will check in throughout the treatment to ensure you are still comfortable.
After the treatment is over and you are dressed, your RMT will discuss any aftercare they feel is necessary to compliment your treatment. This may include stretching, strengthening exercises, application of heat or cold, modification of daily activities, referral to other health professionals, discussion of further treatment and the development of an ongoing treatment plan.
