Your First Visit
Initial Massage and Initial Reiki Appointments
When scheduling your appointment, you will receive a few emails. First, a Welcome email explaining all details you need to know before coming, including how to find parking; a Confirmation email letting you know that you successfully scheduled your Initial Appointment; and an Intake email to fill out your intake paperwork online. We request you fill this out before coming to your consultation so that we are aware of your conditions and it does not impede in your treatment scheduled time.
*If you do not receive one or any of these emails, or are having trouble scheduling, please reach out so we can assist you.
Next, you will have a consultation to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for us to learn more about you, your condition, and expectations to determine how our care can meet your goals. Whether for massage or reiki, this appointment is to determine what is best for you and how we can help you in the most productive manner possible. This appointment does have therapy time, so don't worry that you wont get your treatment.
Initial Massage Appointment Specifics
After your consultation, Samantha will perform a complete muscular examination testing your muscles on where the concerns lay in regards to length, range of motion, tilting, knots and scar tissue, and more. Other standard neurological, postural, and physical tests will be performed as well. If you are coming in for other reasons, for example, anxiety, insomnia, depression, stomach issues, and so on, we will come up with a list of things that trigger you and find out more about your lifestyle. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Report Of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, Samantha will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
How can you help me?
How often do I need to come in?
What will my treatment cost?
After reviewing your health history, goals, and examining your muscular system, Samantha will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. Samantha will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this consultation, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include medical massage, essential oils, and CBD, or meditation training assistance. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
Prior to leaving, we will suggest a wellness program to incorporate outside of treatment. If you are in pain when you first come into our office this may include heat application instructions, certain activities or positions to avoid, and at-home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our wellness team will work with you also to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Every person is unique, therefore everyone requires a customized wellness plan. The purpose of our wellness program is for you to achieve fast results that last, have amazing mobility, have a healthy diet, exercise, and maintain a positive mental state.
