How do I arrange an appointment?
Simply contact the clinic and our reception team will arrange a suitable appointment.
What do I wear?
You will need to partially undress for the treatment. Patients with injuries to their lower limbs often bring shorts with them. We use towels to keep you covered whenever practical and our staff are trained to maintain patient dignity at all times.
How Often Should I Get a Massage?
This depends on your goals. Massage is a cumulative therapy. One treatment can give you great relief, but in order to continue improving, frequency is necessary and massage is most effective when it is received at least every two weeks, and for maintenance at least every 4-6 weeks.
