Does the treatment hurt?

After specific treatments such as Osteopathy, Sports or deep tissue massage, you may feel sore for a day or two. Treatment is not inherently painful. Some discomfort is likely to be experienced when an injury is inflamed and treated, even with gentle techniques. Your therapist will be sensitive to your symptoms and your sensitivity levels. They will discuss the best treatment options with you before you start on an agreed programme.  Alternative options are always available if you find a particular treatment too uncomfortable. Practitioners will work together if your problem is complex. We will put our heads together and ask why? There is almost always a solution. We have always worked this way because we know that two heads are better than one in general!

Your Treatment – A little Advice 

Appointments are generally in the region of 30 to 45 minutes. However, some treatments last over an hour. Massage treatments are around 30 – 60 mins, although some patients book 2hr massage treatments. Conditions vary considerably in the amount of time required may vary. We are committed to achieving the best outcome for you. How many treatments will I Need? The number of treatments depends on the individual condition and its severity. The practitioner will discuss your case and agree on a precise treatment plan with you. Treatment plans may include information regarding your exercises the number of treatments you may need.

In some cases, mainly when the pain is intense, it is more effective to see you again within a few days. Generally, depending on how sore you are and the type of treatment, roughly three to seven days apart. Your recovery rate will also depend upon several other factors, including your age, general health, sensitivity to treatment and general activity level. Everyone is individual and responds slightly differently. What should I wear for the first appointment? Please arrive wearing something comfortable. Some people bring shorts. Others, if you have neck pain wear a loose top or vest. Please don’t wear anything you love or is “special” as the massage oils can stain your clothes. We have towels and covers if required. We employ both male and female practitioners.  It is always your choice, and please specify when you call, and we will be more than happy to help.
