    Before your appointment you will be asked to fill out Covid-19 Self Assessment. On the treatment day, it is asked that you arrive on time for your treatment with a mask on. After walking into the clinic, we will also ask that you wash your hands prior to beginning the session as well. As a reminder, you are free to cancel at any time due to symptoms of Covid-19.
  • What does treatment feel like?
    Treatments are generally relaxing. Your practitioner will assess and treat in different positions. If you ever feel uncomfortable in a position or throughout treatment, let your practitioner know and they can change it up.
  • What should I do after treatment?
    This is your time to take it easy. Drink lots of water and eat nutritious meals. Although it may not immediately feel like it, your body has undergone numerous changes during the treatment and will need to be rested in order to continue its job of healing itself. You should allow your body 24-48 hours to take on treatment, this means no heavy lifting or vigorous exercise. A light walk to integrate treatment is also recommended.
