Your initial session will involve;

  • Subjective Assessment | A discussion about the forms you completed prior to your appointment.  Getting to understand you, your lifestyle, and what is going on for you right now.  You may know, without knowing, what is causing your symptoms or at least be able to point us in the direction of underlying issues. 

  • Goal Setting | Understanding what you want to achieve out of our sessions and beyond in your physical life. 

  • Objective Assessment | A physical examination of your whole body.  We will be looking at your shoulders, neck, and upper back specifically, but we will also look at your hips and pelvis for contributing factors. 

  • Treatment After a full assessment your remedial massage/myotherapy treatment may consist of a blend of the following techniques;

    • Soft tissue palpation to the neck, shoulders, and upper back

    • Intraoral release

    • Deep tissue massage

    • Dry needling  or cupping to release tight trigger points

    • Breathing & relaxation techniques

    • Personalized exercise & treatment program

Subsequent remedial massage treatments will involve a follow-up objective assessment to see how your body has adapted to the treatment and any exercises you were prescribed. Your treatment will be adapted accordingly. 

At your re-exam, we will again complete a full objective assessment and compare your progress to the goals we discussed at your initial session. 

We can help provide back pain relief, headache relief, and rehabilitation from soft tissue injuries with a thorough assessment and treatment plan.  Our goal is to help you Live Your Best Life - pain free!
