What To Expect and FAQs
Whether you this is your first massage or you are well versed with massage therapy. This is what you can expect for your first appointment with me.
For each initial visit, we start with discussing your health history form (health interview). This can take anywhere from a 5 -15 minutes. I ask about what your goals are and ask further questions to help me understand what may be happening. This more detailed interview process is not done with every visit.
Next, an assessment will be done when I require more information and to develop a clinical hypothesis. This can take up to 10 minutes and varies on the complexity of the injury or impairment.
Once I have all the information that I need, we will walk through what will be done in the treatment. I will explain how I negotiate the pressure and to ensure you feel comfortable. This is the most important stage as it is done to gain your informed consent for treatment.
I reserve the last 5 minutes of your appointment to allow you time to get off the table, get dressed, and go through home care instructions.
What should I wear or bring? I use draping to keep you safe and secure. I always work within your comfort level. Treatment can normally be done with clothing on, over the draping or directly on the skin. Draping will always be used to keep areas that aren't being worked on draped.
Why do I have to fill out the health history form/ Is it important that I list all required sections? It is a requirement from my regulatory body to have you complete a health history form. Registered Massage Therapists are Regulated Health Care Practitioners and must adhere to the RHPA. Ensuring that you have taken the time to properly fill out all the required information is most important to ensure your health and safety is maintained. Even though you may not think it isn't related to your massage, it is important for me to have the full picture of your health history. This helps ensure that your treatments are effective and safe.
What payment methods do you accept? I accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Debit, eTransfer, and cash.
Do you do direct billing? Yes, I work with many insurers. Please see below for more information or to see a list of the insurance companies that I currently work with.
