Consultation and Aftercare
What happens when you go for a treatment:
Whatever treatment you choose, your first appointment will include a consultation where you will be asked questions about your health and lifestyle, i.e. if you are on any medication or have any allergies, etc. If you are currently receiving medical treatment for a particular condition, the therapist may require clearance from your GP or consultant before treating you.
This is an important aspect of the treatment as it is beneficial for the therapist to have an understanding of all the factors that may be affecting your health. All information is held in strictest confidence. None of these treatments are intended to replace your usual medical treatment, but to complement it. Client preparations before the treatment: - Jewellery must be removed- Long hair should be tied back- Please ensure all phones are switched off- No heavy meals one hour prior to treatment.
To get the most out of a treatment, particularly a more relaxing one, plan to have plenty of time before and after your treatment and plan a calm day/evening after it.
After treatment, it’s not unusual to experience a reaction. Examples of these reactions include headaches, increased thirst, sleepiness, increased urination, etc. A response like that is nothing to worry about and is the result of the massage encouraging the body systems to function more efficiently, speeding up waste removal and the elimination of toxins.
Water is very important to keep the body hydrated. Drinking water after a treatment will help to release toxins that were trapped in tight areas of the body and release them into the blood stream.
Depending on information provided during your consultation, other recommendations may be made that can include reducing caffeine consumption, incorporating a 30 minute walk or gentle yoga exercise into your daily routine, considering meditation techniques or other stress management methods.
