What can I expect when I come for my first massage at Free Flow Massage Therapy Clinic?

You will begin by filling out a health history intake form. Please arrive about 15 minutes early to allow time for this.

I will review your health history form with you and do appropriate physical assessments such as range of motion, muscle strength testing, etc. I will leave the room while you prepare for your massage, get on the massage table and cover yourself with a sheet.

The massage will begin when I return to the treatment room. For your massage, I use hypoallergenic massage lotions that are good for your skin. Once the massage begins, I will ask if the level of pressure is comfortable and adjust to meet your needs.

Throughout the massage it is important to communicate with me – the more feedback that you give, the better the massage will be for you.

You can talk during your session, or remain quiet. After your massage is finished, you will be given privacy while you dress.

What can I expect after my massage?

Immediately following your massage you may feel extremely relaxed or feel a little tired. Some people are free from aches and pains and feel great relief caused by tension or repetitive activity while others may feel sore and tender at the treatment site.

Instructions will be given for post-massage care for example – drink plenty of water, hot/cold application, corrective posture and/or stretches, etc.

Do I have to undress for my massage?

You only need to undress to your own comfort level. Some people remove all clothing while other only remove clothing that covers the specific area to be treated.

Your whole body will be draped in a sheet and only the area being worked on will be undraped at a time.

Does insurance cover the cost of massage?

Many extended health and group benefit plans provide excellent coverage for massage therapy provided by a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). The Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) provides generous compensation to veterans for massage therapy. Motor Vehicle Insurance claims also cover massage therapy when provided by a registered massage therapist as does Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB).
