How should I prepare before my first session?
It’s important to arrive at your first session well hydrated. You may also consider arriving with time to spare so as to not add unnecessary stress of being late. Avoid food before your session but if food is absolutely necessary, a piece of light fruit will suffice. Deep and steady breathing does wonders to relax the body under a new and possibly overwhelming situation. If you have any concerns prior to your appointment, don’t hesitate to voice them to your practitioner. They want you to have the highest quality massage experience. That means making you feel safe, heard, and comfortable.

What should I expect during my first visit?
First visits with a chiropractor near LAX, or most massage therapists in general, usually begin with a health history report. These can either be mailed to you to be filled out before your visit or upon arrival at your first appointment. Your health history report might include past surgeries or physical traumas and other medical history, along with your level of pain or discomfort.

After filling out these questions you will then be seated with the therapist for an “consultation”. It’s important to be as honest as possible with your therapist during the consultation. Be sure to mention any medication you may be taking, any health conditions, as well as any concerns you have with particular massage techniques that you are interested in incorporating or avoiding.

After your consultation with your therapist, you will be guided to a private room where you may be asked to undress to your comfort level. Please discuss your options with your therapist if you have any apprehensions with undressing.

You will then be asked to lie on a table draped with a large towel or sheet. Only areas the professional therapist will be working on will be exposed. All other areas including genitals should always be covered. Keep in mind that you always have the option to tell your therapist if the temperature, music, comfort level, or anything else needs to be adjusted.
