Your initial visit and consultation – During your first consultation at Essential Therapy, I will take a comprehensive medical history, that takes into account your lifestyle, level of physical activity, work environment, nutritional intake, along with any related medical history. In order to compile an effective treatment plan, we will focus on the mechanisms that are causing your problem. During the consultation, your posture, and movement, will assessed. Your gate, range of movement and flexibility will be measured to establish a base line, from which to gauge treatment progression.

The initial consultation will last for up to thirty minutes, followed up a with treatment. During consultation or treatment, the client may withdraw at any time without any further obligation. Treatments at Essential Therapy will not be undertaken, unless the condition is fully understood. If for any reason, a client would not benefit from a treatment at Essential Therapy, they client will be referred to another health or medical professional.

• Soft tissue mobilization
• Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

The treatments at Essential Therapy have both strong physiological and psychological benefits. Massage can stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, therefor improving the immune system. Also, just as important, it has been shown that massage therapy helps to improve the perceived fatigue level of the athlete. By helping a client to feel more recovered, they are able to generate more power in repeated exercise tests.

Who can benefit?

Essential Therapy treatments are aimed at individuals with work or sport related conditions and common complaints such as back, shoulder and wrist pain, as well as mobility problems, can benefit from treatment. Clients include professional and amateur sports people, and accident victims. Some treatments can be resolved in one visit, but more long term or chronic ailments may need repeated visits.

Please download a consultation form, and answer as many questions, prior to your appointment, as this will reduce consultation time, in favour of an increased treatment time.

Are Treatments Painful?

The aim of all treatments is to relax the mind and body. The old adage, “No pain, No Gain’ does not apply to the ethos of Essential Therapy. All treatments are pain free, however some techniques may cause some momentary discomfort, but should never be painful.
