COMMON QUESTIONS:

What should I wear for treatment?

Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing. 

How many treatments will I need?

Anywhere from 2-6 treatments may be required. The frequency and duration of treatments will depend on the adaptability of the patient and tissues, and the ability of the patient to commit to regular exercise rehabilitation and lifestyle changes. Some patients book regular treatments monthly or every two to three months to help with alignment, mobility, and improved heatlh. 

How can I describe the sensations in my body?

Sensations are always changing within the body. A helpful Vipassana meditation technique used to describe sensations in the body uses the following terms:

  • local/regional/global

  • hot/cold, light/heavy

  • sharp/dull

  • tingling/prickling

  • contraction/expansion

  • wet/dry

  • foggy/cloudy/hazy. 

Start with the above terms and see if you can observe the patterns. With practice, you will begin to observe subtler and subtler sensations.

What types of questions will I be asked?

A thorough health history will be taken. If you have a long history of injuries, surgeries, medications, or other ailments please consider making a timeline of your health history prior to treatment. Bring this with you to your first appointment. It can make the health history timeline more efficient with the therapist.

Will I have exercises to do after treatment?

Yes. Exercise rehab, postural education, and lifestyle considerations are paramount to the success of any treatment plan. When a patient puts forth effort into their rehabilitation then the therapist has an easier time helping the patient; Plus progress will be faster.
