This includes your current health stats, any medical conditions or medication intake we should be aware of, the type and level of discomfort you are feeling, special areas of concern, your pain triggers, and lastly, your contact info.

At this point, you can take the opportunity to let them know of any issues you may have with certain techniques being used, as well as any other information you wish to be kept private.
Scheduling The First Massage
It is best to set up any massage session at a time convenient for you, and especially the first one. Only visit when you have no complications such as a fever, or an upset stomach. The idea is to be as relaxed as you can even before we start the session, but if that is not viable, we can assist.
We typically have each patient lie down on a massage table, and let them cover themselves with a sheet or large towel. The therapist’s main aim is to get your body to relax, which means at the onset, he or she would adjust the massage setting to make you pleasantly comfortable. You can choose the temperature in the room; and the background music; you can even ask for specific techniques to be used or avoided.
Getting the Best Results
To squeeze the proverbial juice out of each session, patients are encouraged to open up to the process, letting their thoughts drift while a part of their minds focus on deep breathing.
