Your Advanced Remedial Massage Consultation
You will be asked to fill out our client history form at your first consultation. You can either download (click here), complete and bring the form with you, or arrive 5 minutes prior to your consultation time to complete the form at the clinic. Your consultation begins with a detailed discussion of your case, where you will be asked a range of questions to investigate your symptoms or concerns.
If you have a specific issue, your practitioner may assess your range of movement in the affected joints and carry out special orthopaedic tests to establish the likely cause of your symptoms, and the structures involved. This may include an analysis of certain movement patterns, such as walking on the spot, squatting, or rowing. Any deficits noted will influence the treatment and help determine the most suitable rehabilitation exercises for you.
Additionally, your practitioner may carry out a visual assessment, which is usually done with the outer garments removed. It is therefore advisable to wear suitable underwear for your first treatment. Alternatively, tight fitting sportswear is suitable for this purpose.
Prior to the remedial massage commencing, you will be given time to undress in private and cover yourself on the table with the towels provided. Keeping your modesty protected, your practitioner will expose the areas requiring treatment as the session progresses. Some techniques require participation from the client, so be prepared to play an active role in your treatment! The pressure applied is always adjusted to suit each client, so be sure to give your practitioner feedback.
At the end of the treatment, if appropriate, your practitioner may provide instruction in certain rehabilitation exercises to commence the journey of re-training your neurological firing patterns.
To allow time to take the initial case history, carry out the assessments and massage treatment, and go through the exercise programme, when appropriate, the first consultation is 55 minutes long.
Follow up consultations are either 40 minutes or 55 minutes long, as required.
Your Rehabilitation Consultation
Based on the outcome of the assessment in your remedial massage treatment, Sunil will usually provide instruction in specific exercises to help speed up your recovery and help you maintain your improved condition. These are carried out fully clothed, usually at the end of the treatment. Where exercises involve the use of equipment such as exercise tubing, you will be provided with proper instruction to use them safely and effectively.
Your Kinesiology Session
Your first session will look at a detailed case history to include both physical and emotional conditions/states, any past surgeries or other traumas, pain management, attitudes and relationships, pressures and stresses in all areas of life, and steps to manifesting aspirations and goals. Home reinforcement techniques may be given to enhance or speed up the healing process.
With each kinesiology session, years of conditioning and patterns of neglect may be gently peeled away, to reveal the limiting beliefs we’ve held, and bring forth profound awareness which can be extremely rewarding and life-changing.
You are encouraged to take control and feel empowered, whilst unlocking the potential within and finding your true nature, in an inherent state of well-being and vitality.
