The assessment is an incredibly useful tool. Information gathered before each massage about your health history and habits, combined with our qualified observations of any obvious signs and symptoms such as your current level of pain and range of motion, will result in a more effective overall treatment plan.
Treatments pick up where the assessment leaves off and while no two treatments are the same, communication here is as important as the assessment itself. In addition to monitoring how your muscles are reacting, feedback during your massage can help us adjust the pressure and techniques used and find patterns in how and why pain appears. If work on sensitive areas is required, we’ll always ask for your consent before continuing and be happy to explain why we work on them.
The road to better health doesn’t end with your treatment or at our doors. We believe it’s important to also play a role in helping to educate and empower you on your personal health journey. Part of that is to customize your homecare; which is exactly what it sounds like; care that is done at home. Extend the benefits of your last massage with targeted homecare designed to sustain the effects of your last massage. Theralleve will demonstrate and provide you with simple stretches and movements you can do on your own time and comfort level.
