New to Massage Therapy?


Administration
New clients should fill out and submit their health history form prior to their first appointment. Your answers will help me give you the best possible treatment.

I can direct-bill certain insurance companies. Save yourself time and effort by opting for direct billing – Make sure to include your plan’s policy and membership ID numbers on your intake form.  See “Rates & Insurance” for more info.

Assessment
This involves a review of your medical history and an examination of your condition or injury. ICBC cases and chronic conditions often require a longer exam; a 60-minute appointment is recommended for new clients.

Treatment
Based on assessment, your treatment may involve hands-on modalities, and/or movement therapy. I often take a moderate approach at the first session, then make adjustments as necessary at follow-up appointments.

I will use sheets and proper draping if an area of the body needs to be exposed, but fully clothed treatments are possible as well. Clear communication is key for comfort, so let me know how you are feeling, and please feel free to ask questions.

Re-assessment
At the end of treatment I may re-assess the area of concern, and will discuss my findings and recommendations with you.
