How long of a session should I book?
For your very first visit, we suggest booking at least a 60 minute session. We’re getting to know your body, and that means exploration and discovery of any underlying issues involving your pain. We move very slowly and precisely, getting you the best results possible. After your initial visit (and we’ve found our rhythm,) we’ll need a minimum of 30 minutes per problem area. If you’re coming in with multiple issues that you’d like us to address, schedule accordingly.
Always go with your gut…if you simply want more time because you feel you need it, that’s great! Listen to your body and book that longer session!
How many visits until I’m better?
It depends on what brings you to our treatment table and what your personal goals are. Is your pain keeping you from training and you want to get back in the game ASAP? You’ll want short but frequent sessions (30 minutes/3x weekly) where we’ll test and retest how your body is reacting along the way and change our strategy if we don’t see significant improvement after each visit. Is your pain acute or chronic? Acute pain can be mild and last for just a moment, or it can be severe and last for weeks. Chronic pain is ongoing and usually lasts longer than six months. If you’re suffering from chronic pain, we must be realistic and patient when it comes to getting results. Consistency is key, so you’ll want to book longer sessions perhaps weekly, biweekly, or monthly. Remember, bodywork is cumulative. It’s tough to undo months or years of pain with only one session, but even at your first visit, most people experience noticeable improvement that continues as we work through the issues together.
How would you best describe your approach to pain?
We are clinical bodyworkers that perform highly targeted manual therapy. We also sprinkle in at-home instruction and injury education, which is the “secret sauce.” When you’re doing what you need to do to get better, it expedites the whole healing process! If you’re familiar with arrosti, it’s kinda like that–minus the tears. We like to focus most of our efforts on the fascia/connective tissue. Yes, we’re anatomy nerds and are very detail-oriented when working muscles, tendons, ligaments, and veins, but your connective tissue is the key. Fascia has 6-10 times more nerve endings than muscle, yet it doesn’t show up on any CT scans, MRIs, or X-rays. It’s often overlooked and is often the culprit for pain. Be prepared to move and assist us in our treatment; we’re going to put you to work.
What should I wear to my appointment?
Wear loose fitting clothing that you can easily move around in. If you’re coming from work, bring a change of clothes with you. We use organic, fair trade shea butter that has a potential to stain clothing, so don’t wear your new $30 workout top. Some articles of clothing may need to be removed for treatment, in which case you’ll be fully draped.
Should I eat before I come in?
It’s okay to eat a light meal before your session, but if we’re working on your hips, odds are we’ll be checking your psoas. Your psoas is the deepest muscle in your body, and we access it through the abdomen, so no cheeseburgers right before a session like that.
What should I expect from my session?
Hopefully some seriously amazing changes in your body! You may experience some discomfort during treatment, but we always say “You can’t push a river.” We’ll never work beyond your threshold of pain. Doing so would release stress hormones (cortisol) and could be counterproductive to our work. Forget the “no pain, no gain” mentality.
Not everything that is therapeutic is painful but not everything that is painful is therapeutic. We’ll teach you how to listen to your body and know when what we’re doing is working and when it’s not. Communication and feedback from what you’re feeling and experiencing is our guide to being successful.
