 What happens during a consultation?

I carry out a consultation prior to every treatment that you have with me. On your first visit I will send you a form to fill in which is mandatory it is filled in to secure your appointment. This is to find out why you would like the treatment and to discuss any aches and pains or medical issues that you may have, so that you can get the most out of your treatment. An initial consultation lasts approximately 10 to 15 minutes, and a follow up is slightly shorter. Before beginning a treatment, I require information regarding any medication you are taking or any medical conditions. This is because a massage could affect your medical condition or interact with certain medications. For example, if you have diabetes, heart problems or high/low blood pressure, I require a doctor’s note stating that I am able to provide you with a massage. If you are unable to gain a doctor’s note but your GP verbally says it is ok for a massage to go ahead then I’ll ask you to sign to say your GP has verbally given you clearance and is safe to continue. This does not necessarily mean that I cannot perform the treatment, however I may have to adapt my treatment to suit your needs. Once you have completed the consultation form, I will ask you to sign and date it to say that everything you have told me is present and correct, and that you understand the possible side effects and are happy for the treatment to go ahead. If you withhold any information about your health I will not be held accountable for this. Everything that is discussed during the consultation is kept strictly confidential – remember I am here to help you!

Aftercare advice and what you might expect during the first 24 hours following the treatment

  • Drink plenty of water – this continues the body’s natural detoxification, you may find you need to urinate more after a massage so it’s important you replace your fluids.
  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine and nicotine
  • Avoid strenuous exercise
  • Have a light snack – you may feel hungry but try not to eat a large meal
  • Wrap up warm – you might feel the cold more than usual as your blood pressure drops during massage
  • Rest
  • Have a nice warm bubble bath, I highly recommend BubbleBeez, they are a local Macclesfield business and make handcrafted bath bombs and so much more! you can find them on Facebook and instagram too.
  • Welcome any emotions – as your body relaxes you may feel all your built up emotions pour out. Embracing these and allowing them to escape is the best thing to do.
  • Your muscles may feel a little sore – this is normal. Your body will heal and recover better than before.

History of massage

All massages

Touch is such a primary human need: massage has played a major part in human culture for over 2,000 years. The Chinese practiced massage back as far as 3000 BC. In India, sacred ancient Hindu texts included massage in their guidelines for hygiene and well-being. Evidence has also been found in Egyptian tombs which shows that massage was also important in their culture.

In ancient Greece they used massage before and after competing in the sporting arenas, while the Romans recognised the benefits for injured gladiators. Massage was also important to cultured Roman citizens, after they bathed in hot springs. Many Romans liked to finish off their visits to the baths with a relaxing massage.

Mary Queen of Scots helped to get massage recognised as a form of therapy after discovering the benefits to her health.
