Before your first appointment please print out the Body Symptom Sheet.pdf below and mark all your symptoms on the diagrams. Feel free to add descriptive notes. Also, please make a note of any previous accidents, injuries, broken bones, operations and health issues. A list of any medications or supplements you are taking can also be useful.
Your initial consultation can be arranged at one of the clinics in Sussex, where Emma will take a detailed account of your medical history and health concerns. In order to understand as much about you as possible and why you are experiencing problems, Emma may l ask about your lifestyle, work, hobbies and activities.
Emma will then look at your posture and observe how you move with some range of movement tests. These will contribute significantly to Emma's understanding of the causes of your problems.
In order to get the best out of your treatment, it is best applied directly on the skin. This allows for continuous assessment of the condition of your body’s tissues, and the response of these to the treatment. However, if you prefer, most procedures can be done through light comfortable clothing. Tight clothing or thick material, i.e., jeans, will be requested to be removed. Any areas where clothing is removed will always be covered.
Please allow up to one and a half hours for your first treatment session. Subsequent sessions usually take 45 minutes to one hour.
It is strongly recommended that you avoid any strenuous activity for at least 48 hours after your treatment.
