FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Your Questions, Answered
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY FIRST TREATMENT?
Your first appointment will involve a discussion to see where you are at and what your concerns are. If it is a massage or Emmett treatment then your posture will be assessed and muscles will be poked and prodded. If you are receiving a massage please make sure you have showered and are clean before the treatment.
If you are receiving a non massage treatment please wear stretchy or baggy and comfortable clothing.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST SESSION?
Change! Positive change! Results are usually pretty instant and positive! If you do not receive instant positive change you may be referred to another specialist for chiropractic, acupuncture, yoga, naturopathy or kinesiology. For chronic issues that have accumulated over many years then a treatment plan (usually over a few months) will be necessary. What you have created over years can't always be cleared in one session!
CAN I JUST GET A TRIGGER POINT, DEEP TISSUE OR REMEDIAL MASSAGE? WITH FIRM PRESSURE AND YOU CAN REALLY DIG INTO IT? NO PAIN, NO GAIN!!
Absolutely you can! I will be happy to refer you on to other therapists that treat in that way, but I do not. I have found that the body doesn't need a frim hand or pain to respond, in fact the opposite is true. More profound, instant and long lasting change happens with gentle and peaceful attention to the bodies needs. Listen to the body with compassion and it is amazing the secrets it will reveal.
