If it is your first appointment, you will receive an email with a link to fill out a confidential health history form. Alternatively, you may download the Confidential Case History Form and bring it with you to the appointment, or arrive 15 minutes early and fill it out at the clinic. Your appointment will start with a review of this form prior to your assessment and treatment. Please make sure to arrive early enough to fill out the form so that you do not lose any appointment time.
The Confidential Case History Form requires a copy of Adobe Reader. Download Now.
The length of your treatment includes a review of your confidential health history form (for new clients), assessment and treatment. These are all completed within the time you have booked. We recommend a 60 minute session for new clients so that there is time to complete the review and assessment, and also leave time for a treatment.
Each session booked includes a brief assessment of your case prior to the actual treatment. You and your massage therapist will mutually agree on what needs to be treated prior to starting your treatment. You may withdraw consent or request to change your treatment at any time.
