COMMON QUESTIONS:

What should I wear for treatment?

Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing. 

How many treatments will I need?

Typically 2-6 treatments. The frequency and duration will vary depending on the patients ability to recover.  

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 any 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 prior to treatment. Bring this file with you to your first appointment. This will make the health history timeline much more efficient for the therapist to organize. 

Will I have exercises to do after treatment?

Yes. Exercise rehab and postural education is paramount to the success of any treatment plan. When a patient puts forth the effort into their rehabilitation the therapist has a much easier time helping the patient and progress will be faster.

 

There is an equation for treatment: 1/3 is the therapists effort; 1/3 is the patients efforts; 1/3 are the genetics of the patient.
