WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A TREATMENT

  • Sessions are very relaxed, gentle and non-invasive.  A treatment usually lasts 45 mins to an hour.  An initial appointment may take a little longer, as a client health questionnaire is taken. ​

     

  • A session is carried out with the client lying on a treatment table, but it can be undertaken with the client sitting in a chair or standing.   The most important thing is that you feel comfortable during treatment to enable you to relax fully.

     

  • During a treatment a sequence of moves are performed over specific points on the body,  over skin or through light layers of clothing. These points are carried out over soft tissue such as fascia, tendons and ligaments, and some nerves.

     

  • Then the therapist leaves the client for a short period of time, usually about 2 minutes depending on what the client needs. 

     

  • This break in the treatment allows the body time to respond and integrate what is being done.  It allows the client to relax more deeply without feeling the need to keep a conversation. This reduces stress and promotes well-being.

  • At the end of the treatment, you may be shown some simple gentle exercises to help with your recovery, and you will be given instructions which may be seen in the section on Aftercare.

  • Please bring shorts and a vest top to change into for a treatment.  This makes it is easier to make postural observations and make the best plan for a treatment. 

     

  • Below is a short time lapsed video to show what a treatment might look like (obviously in real life it is much slower).
