What can I expect on my next visit?

You have just completed your first massage treatment. Congratulations! We cannot praise you enough for taking this first step! We hope you were happy with the outcome of the session.

happy massage newYour first treatment can be a little overwhelming. Your therapist might try to explain a lot of things and this itself can often feel heavy, especially if the treatment was deep and left you feeling spaced out. It can also be difficult for therapists to fully understand what you want or need. We truly hope you felt listened to and understood. During your first massage, your therapist needed to understand your body, find areas of tightness, and apply the best techniques to get tissues to respond.  

This often means that the first session with any therapist is not the best experience. What matters though is that at the end of the first session you get a feeling that the treatment worked, and the possibility of seeing this pain or injury through is real. So, what can you expect from your next visit?

  1. A sense of continuity and better results – your therapist should have a plan how to get you better and hopefully they have already shared it with you, at least for the next couple of sessionspink lady. This is one of the reasons we highly recommend seeing the same therapist. That’s of course if you believe they are the right match for you. Because they have now massaged you once, they can find the “hot spots” easier or get the response from the tissues faster. The results from your consecutive session should also last longer as your body starts to remember the new balanced state. 
  1. A recap - your therapist will want to know how you felt after the first massage and during the days leading to the next session. You can be honest. Your therapist really wants to give you the best possible treatment so the more they know, the more they will be able to help you.recap oramgeBased on your reaction to your initial treatment, they might be able to adjust the techniques used. You can also let your therapist know if going forward you prefer less or more pressure on certain areas or perhaps more/less time and focus on specific body parts. 
  1. It’s OK to go “off track” - there is nothing wrong with changing or adjusting your treatment plan to your current circumstances. For example, if you had a bad week or felt stressed and would rather do with a less intense session – there is nothing wrong with it! people frameThis is smart, and responsible!  If you developed a headache that doesn’t want to go away, experienced another injury or a change in pain pattern – it is more than OK to let your therapist know about it so they can re-adjust the plan of action and give you the tailored attention on the parts that need it the most. Remember that all treatments are about you, about what you want and need on any day you attend treatment.  It is our job to prioritise your needs. At the end of the day, we are here to serve you and will support you no matter what circumstances appear in your life.
