What to Expect at Your First Massage

What to Expect

When you come to the office, we suggest you wear loose, comfortable clothing to allow your therapist access to any areas necessary. You’ll check in at the front desk and handle any financial responsibilities.

On your first visit, before any care begins, we’ll go over your health history in detail, discuss what’s going on with you, and what issues you’re having. Once we determine where treatment is needed, you’ll be brought to a massage room. You determine the degree of disrobing you’re comfortable with; your therapist will leave the room while you change.

The amount and frequency of sessions differs from person to person. Each person and their condition is unique, as is their ability to heal and recover from injury or tension. Your therapist and doctor will discuss this with you and make recommendations.

After receiving your massage, we advise drinking water to rehydrate and prevent stiffness and soreness the next day. Gentle stretching  will also help extend the benefits of your massage.


Working With Other Therapies

Massage therapy complements many other forms of care, including chiropractic. It increases the effectiveness of your adjustment and can also help muscles hold on to the adjustment longer. Repeated correction speeds healing and reduces pain faster.

By relieving knots in muscles, joint restrictions, and ligament tightness, massage prepares the body to receive the full benefits of various complementary therapies.
