Arbor Wellness is focused on providing the highest-quality therapeutic experience, that is personalized to your needs.
On your first visit, a therapist will take your health history, asking you additional questions to assess the problem you are experiencing. After hearing about the problems in your own words, the therapist may want to perform some range of motion or muscle tests, to further identify the soft-tissue structures needing attention.
After your personal evaluation, the therapist will have a clear understanding of your situation and a treatment plan will then be created.
As every person's body is different, we will not use the same techniques on every client and expect them to work. We believe in integrating techniques from multiple styles within our treatment sessions. So, your session may include elements of relaxation massage (Swedish), trigger-point therapy (NMT), deep tissue massage (Myofascial Therapy), and stretching.
In addition to the treatment session, the therapist will provide you will self-care techniques that you can do at home or work to assist in the prevention and elimination of soft tissue injury. These techniques may include problem-specific stretches, stress-reducing exercises, or tips to improve your posture during your daily activities.
