Frequently Asked Questions
What does the Initial Assessment entail?
At your initial assessment, we will discuss your overall health, treatment history and goals, and the reasons you have sought out Myofascial Release treatment.
What kind of clothing should I wear to my treatment?
Comfortable loose fitting shorts, sports bra, underwear, and a tank top are all recommended types of clothing for treatment. While yoga/capri pants are comfortable, they are not ideal for treatment.
Do you accept insurance?
I do not bill insurance companies directly. Full payment is made by patients for services rendered upon completion of a treatment session. Receipts are then provided that can be remitted to your insurance company for reimbursement. Also, I currently do not accept any active Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) or Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB) claims.
How many treatment sessions are normally required?
As each individual is different, so is the amount of time required to yield results. Historically, many patients feel improvement with respect to their pain and range of motion after a single session. That said, as therapeutic goals, lifestyle, compliance with exercises, and number treatments sessions required will be wide ranged, an estimation on number of sessions will always vary. It is not uncommon for the healing journey to be different for each patient.
What should I expect to feel after a Myofascial Release treatment?
As humans we have both physical and emotional components tied to healing. Day to day life has taught us to ignore pain and uncomfortable feelings where Myofascial Release promotes us to feel everything and deny nothing. In order to truly heal, we must acknowledge all that is happening within the multiple layers of our bodies. As an experienced therapist, my goal is to assist you with recognizing and understanding the significance behind the trauma that is attributing to any fascial restrictions you may have.
Myofascial Release treatment will never force nor injure you. However, you may experience some mild tenderness after a treatment session. With time, you will realize the importance of listening to your body and will start to notice the natural healing process taking place. Hydration of the fascia through drinking plenty of water is highly recommended as it promotes releases to their fullest potential.
