On your first visit, a detailed health history and assessment will be taken to better understand your needs and goals. This will be done in first 60-minute session.
All past injuries, traumas, and surgeries will be reviewed before you are recommended a treatment program best suited to you and your specific needs.
During the assessment and treatment, clients are asked to wear a pair of loose fitting shorts and, for women, also a tank top or sports bra. (If you would wear it to the gym or yoga it is acceptable).
There is no lotion used in these treatments to eliminate dragging on the skin and no sheets so as to allow your body to unwind as it needs.
During your MFR treatment, as the physical restrictions are being released, you will become very relaxed and your body will begin to soften. You may feel nothing more than a deep stretch and relaxation as you begin to shut off the chatter of your thoughts and explore the sensations of your body. As minutes pass, you will begin to feel sensations in various parts of your body as the tension released begins to relieve pressure on sensitive organs and nerves.
More often than not, there will also be emotions that come bubbling up. Some may be fleeting, gone as fast as they come. Others may be profound, accompanied by long forgotten or suppressed memories of the past. Whatever the type or intensity, you will be encouraged remain present and soften into the feeling. You will, at all times, be safe.
After the treatment, people often report feeling lighter, more mobile, and straighter. Usually, they also notice a significant decrease of pain.
This can last days or weeks, and it is advisable that you continue with the home care exercises, which will also be given to reinforce your progress.
Sometimes you may be asked to come in multiple times in a week for shorter sessions, depending on the situation.
