BOOKING TERMS AND CONDITIONS

You must understand that as a massage therapist
I do not diagnosis illness, disease or any other physical or mental disorder.
I do not prescribe medical treatment nor perform spinal manipulations.
Understand that you hold all responsibility for the treatment you receive.
Suitability of massage treatment:
There are some potential contraindications to having a massage treatment, this will be discussed on your first appointment, or if this occurs later in a course of treatment, then it will be re-evaluated and you will be informed if it is no longer appropriate to continue with your treatment.
Massage treatments are NOT a substitute for medical examination or medical care. You must honour all existing and future medical practitioner appointments.
It is NOT appropriate to stop any course of medication or treatment as prescribed by your GP or other healthcare professional without first discussing this with them.
Any therapy or treatment provided should not be used in place of conventional medical care.
Always consult your GP or a healthcare professional for medical attention and advice.
What to expect after treatment:
It is normal for you to feel some muscle soreness, aching and on occasion some localised bruising as a result of deep tissue massage therapy to the (skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments), and this will pass as part of the recovery process.
We are all unique and respond differently to massage treatments, following a treatment you should take advantage of feeling relaxed and simply relax but make a conscious effort to drink plenty of water to rehydrate.
Things to avoid following a massage:
Smoking, Drinking Caffeine, Working Out, Taking Hot Baths & Showers.
My promise to you:
I will always be honest and open with you if it is not appropriate for you to have a massage treatment.
