Massage Consultation

An initial consultation will include identifying reasons and goals for having a massage, the current physical condition and the patient’s medical history.

Remedial massage aims to assess and treat the connective tissues of the body, assisting with rehabilitation, pain and injury management.  Relaxation massage, however, is designed to reduce stress and tension of the individual by promoting calmness and deep breathing.

Our massage therapists may use a combination of modalities in a consultation to effect healing, including:

  • Musculoskeletal alignment – this is typically part of an initial assessment of a patient, and may reveal the root cause of a problem
  • Muscle manipulation – this includes soft and deep tissue massage
  • Dry Needling – this technique allows the therapist to increase blood flow and nullify trigger points
  • Stretching – specific stretching techniques are used to increase blood flow and reduce tension
  • Cupping – another technique that improves blood flow
  • Exercise – exercise can help to strengthen weak muscles and promote healing
