Soft Tissue Treatment
I’m not sure about committing to a 6-week plan straight away?
This is completely understandable. We recommend booking a one-off treatment first. You’ll then be able to see if the 6-week plan is right for you.
What happens during the treatment?
After meeting your therapist, you’ll be asked to fill out a health history questionnaire. This is used by the therapist to gain subjective information about your health. The valuable information this provides will be used to create a safe, effective treatment plan. The therapist will then take you through some postural and movement assessments. These are used to observe any imbalances in your posture or movement, which may be contributing to your condition. To help find your current level of function, active and passive tests are used to find your joint ranges of motion, muscle strength, and length. Before the treatment begins and with your consent, the therapist will then assess the condition of the tissue by using palpation techniques with their hands.
Overall, the initial assessment is a very important part of the treatment. We’ll be able to discuss each part of the assessment with you before the treatment begins.
What to wear?
We require you to keep your underwear on during the treatment. We use towels on areas not being treated. If you feel more comfortable wearing shorts, we recommend wearing loose/baggy shorts to allow access to the upper legs. The important thing for us is that you feel comfortable during your treatment.
What happens if I’m unable to schedule a treatment?
If you’re going away on holiday and unable to schedule a treatment in a specific month, that’s fine; you’ll be able to make that treatment up in the following week. We would require at least 4-weeks’ notice of any changes to our scheduled treatments.
How do I pay?
Payment is due after the first treatment is booked and made via PayPal. We’ll send you a PayPal link via email. The link will direct you to a payment page. If you’re not registered with PayPal, it is very quick to do. However, if you’re more comfortable with bank transfer, that’s fine. We will send you an invoice with our details attached. We can set up what you’re comfortable with.
How do I cancel treatments?
You will need to contact us with at least 24 hours notice to cancel or change your appointment.
How long do treatments plans last?
Our current plans last for 6-weeks. Please let us know of any holidays before your block of treatments begin.
Is the consultation included in the 1-hour treatment?
The consultation is included in the treatment time. However, we always block out extra time to allow for this process. To help reduce the time, we’ll ask you to fill out our online application form which gives the therapist an understanding of your health before you meet.
How many times will I see the therapist within the 6-week package?
Your therapist will discuss their treatment plan with you after the first treatment. This will include the best treatment schedule.
