Top Questions

We’re Here for You

What will my first session be like?

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for your first appointment, to fill out a health history form, if you were unable to do so beforehand.  Any current health issues will be discussed, as well as the many factors affecting the way your body is feeling.  There may be additional questions asked and a treatment plan and goals for the session will be developed accordingly.  Postural and movement assessments will be done of certain movements or areas of discomfort.  Breathing patterns will be assessed, as well as manual muscle testing, to reveal any compensation patterns and problematic tissues. Massage techniques as well as stretching and neuromuscular work will be done in order to restore balance.  Self care will be recommended for furthering your healing and pattern improvement.

What do I wear for my session?

For Therapeutic Assessment and Bodywork, you may wear a loose fitting sweats and T-shirt, pair of shorts or running shorts and a tank top or sports bra.  This allows me to assess with MMT, utilize stretching and movement techniques, as well as postural evaluation during the session.  Because you will be asked to get on and off the table to move and integrate corrections, being in comfortable clothing is beneficial.

What happens if I can't make my scheduled appointment?

If you are running late for an appointment, please call.  If you are late for an appointment, please note that depending on time constraints, your therapist may not have the time to provide the full time allotted for your session.  The session must still be paid in full.  If time permits, your therapist will work for as much of the session time as possible.


Please note that there is a 24 hour cancellation policy.  We have set aside a specific time for your massage session, please be respectful of that commitment.  It is hard to fill appointment times at the last minute, so please be respectful of our time, and kindly give 24 hour notice.  If there is a chance you are sick or in cases of emergency, the fee will be waived.   If notice is not given or you are a no-show, you will be responsible for paying the full session fee.  If the appointment was made with a gift certificate as payment, the gift certificate will be forfeited.     Thank you!
