What should I expect on my first visit to the massage clinic?

During your initial visit a health history form will be completed by yourself and reviewed with your RMT. Specific health questions will be asked with all the information being private and confidential. Usually an assessment is required to allow the therapist to fully evaluate the condition you are presenting with.

Health history forms are a requirement set by the Regulated Health Practitioner's Act (RHPA). The form provides the therapist with valuable health information which is necessary to develop a highly effective and individualized treatment plan for each client.

We will always inform you of what areas need to be worked on and obtain informed consent prior to assessment or treatment. Always know that you have the right to stop the assessment or treatment at any time. You are in full control.
