- First, during an initial consultation, your therapist does a postural analysis and asks about any muscles that require special attention.
- Once you are ready, your therapist begins by warming your muscles with light compressions.
- Then the therapist uses a combination of long gliding strokes, kneading, friction and vibration and regularly checks to ensure that the pressure is firm enough. As trigger points are located, direct pressure is applied to release the knots.
- After the massage, your therapist discusses a self-care plan and recommends follow-up treatments, if necessary.
