Millions of people live with pain everyday but you don't have to be one of them.
Pain Management - The Process
During the initial consultation we will go over your medical history which will include accidents, injuries, illnesses, medications, etc. We will also discuss what it is that you would like to achieve from your sessions with Attune to You. If you would like, you can write down any questions or thoughts on the subject and we will go over them. Things to think about: What is my goal? How can I achieve these goals? What will I need to do? What am I willing to try in order to reach my goal?
After determining your goals, and answering any questions you might have, we will discuss a realistic time frame for progress. Not everyone is the same so while one person may see progress in a few days another may not see progress for the first 2-3 weeks. I will also evaluate your posture for any abnormalities that may be causing or resulting from your pain. For any pain relating to posture but not as a result of the muscular system I recommend you receive an evaluation from a medical professional such as your primary care provider or a chiropractor if you are not currently receiving treatment from them.
Following your evaluation we will begin the massage. Depending on your needs I may use a wide range of techniques from Swedish to Trigger Point work. Once the massage has concluded we will discuss massage frequency, useful techniques that may benefit you in the next session, and post care suggestions.
Are we getting results? That is the question we will discuss after your 3rd session and every session following. If we are not seeing any results then we will discuss the possibility of needing a more detailed medical evaluation with another healthcare professional. If we have made progress or have reached your original goal then we will discuss any other conditions you would like to address or move into a maintenance plan to keep the muscles healthy and you happy.
