What should you expect from massage therapy? It’s our goal that you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and that it brings a sense of overall well-being to your body. If this is your first time receiving a massage at Village Wellness, you’ll be asked to complete a confidential patient form which requests some personal information, any current physical complaints and some questions about your current and previous health history. Our registered massage therapist will then conduct a short history and physical exam to get a better understanding of your physical condition. This is important to rule out any risks for adverse effects to massage therapy and provide the best outcome possible. Your treatment will follow only with your understanding and consent for the remainder of the duration you requested, either 30, 45 or 60 minutes. If you’re a new patient, we suggest your first visit is a 60 minute appointment in order to get the most out of your time with our massage therapist. Treatment may include a variety of Swedish techniques, joint mobilizations, lymph drainage, myofascial release, hydrotherapy, trigger point release and stretching and strengthening applications.
