What You Can Expect
Massage is a hands on therapy. It is designed not only to help you relax but is used as a powerful tool in the healing of many ailments. The massage therapists at Tyack Health are highly trained and have an excellent understanding of anatomy and physiology.
Prior to your treatment our massage therapists will ask you a few general questions regarding your current condition and your health history. This is your opportunity to inform the therapist of your expectations or of any specific requirements you may have. You are also encouraged to ask questions in relation to your condition or the treatment during this time.
They will adapt the techniques they use to best address your individual needs.
Please communicate with your therapist if you feel that the pressure applied is too firm or too light or if you start feeling cold etc. Sometimes massage can cause slight discomfort if you have tender or tense muscles. You may also feel a little tenderness a day or so later. To ease these symptoms it is also advised that you keep up your water intake.
To help with particular problem areas, your therapist may discuss a suggested treatment plan with you with the aim to bring about the best possible outcome.
