Client Information

Please print and complete Client Intake Sheet and bring to save time during your appointment. It is best to discuss goals and modalities over phone before appointment. Your health practitioner's indication or contraindication for bodywork is always recommended, and sometimes required for certain health conditions (such as thrombosis) and during use of certain medications (such as blood thinners). Severe muscle spasms, and injuries such as tissue tears, are also included as contraindications for typical manipulative bodywork (i.e. massage not recommended.)
Rebound headaches and specific myofascial related pain may occur after Swedish or other massage therapy. During a Swedish or other massage, latent trigger points may be massaged just enough to trigger them, but not precisely enough to release them; or they may be overworked which can irritate them.
If therapeutic treatment such as Myofascial Release or Trigger Point Therapy does not produce significant results within 1 to 3 visits, then medical referral may be necessary.
