WHAT TO EXPECT

At your first appointment 15-30 minutes will be spent taking a full consultation. This will ensure that massage is safe for you and tailored to your specific needs.

You will be asked to provide your contact details and those of your GP along with your medical history. All records are stored in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

All treatments are conducted in privacy. You will usually be required to undress to your underwear and remove jewellery.

With Sports Massage some of your appointment time will be spent building a portfolio of exercises to improve posture, joint mobility and general flexibility.
 

AFTER-EFFECTS & PRECAUTIONS

All forms of massage may cause some possible side effects. Increased thirst is the most common, headache, nausea, sleepiness or frequent urination are other possibilities.

It’s usually a good idea to drink plenty of water after your massage, this can reduce any of the affects listed above.

Always make a note of any post-massage side effects to bring along to your next appointment. This will increase our understanding of how massage affects you as an individual.

If you have any concerns about symptoms after your massage treatment, please contact me.

After any massage where oil is used, please take extra precautions before exposing your skin to the sun.

After Hot Thai Herb Massage wait for 2 hours or more before you shower, if you take a bath make it a cool one. Avoid any other heat based treatments for 24 hours.
 

HOW TO GAIN MAXIMUM BENEFIT FROM YOUR TREATMENT

  • Drink Plenty of Water
  • Rest and relax: the effects of your massage will continue for at least a couple of hours, the longer you can remain peaceful, the more effective your treatment will be.
  • Eat lightly, digesting a large meal will divert a lot of energy away from the healing process that your massage has begun.
  • Avoid coffee, tea and other drinks containing caffeine, as these will stimulate your system contradicting your relaxed state. Cigarettes and alcohol are also stimulants.
