What to Expect

Preparing for Your Appointment

It is best to wear comfortable and loose-fitting clothing. Treatments are in a private room with optional soothing music. Patients have the option of having the practitioner stay in the room throughout the treatment and will always be given a bell to ring if needed. If patients are uncomfortable on the treatment table, there is an optional massage chair.
