After discussing the history of your condition, and finding out which movements are restricted or painful, you will be asked to undress to expose the areas which need attention. Although at first very relaxing and gentle, once the problem area has been identified, massage can be quite painful, though you will probably feel a sense of release and diminishing pain as the work continues. It is entirely up to you how deep the treatment is.
After the treatment, which lasts up to 45 minutes for the first treatment, and thereafter either 45 minutes or an hour & half, you may feel slightly sore, this should disappear within 24-48 hours.
After that you should notice considerable relief from your problem, though for how long and how much will depend on how long you have had the problem and how serious it is, as well as your general health.
After each subsequent treatment you should experience relief for a longer time, until the pain or restriction no longer exists. At this point one or two further treatments are recommended to ensure that all the tension or scar tissue is removed, so that the problem does not recur. Often exercises to keep the muscles loose and stretched will be recommended for you to carry out between treatments. Doing these regularly will also speed up the time until complete recovery is reached.
