FAQs

Why is the initial appointment always 60 minutes?

The initial appointment is very important and we will need to go through a lot of personal information, including medical and injury history, as well as the issue that you are looking to get treated. Along with this we will quite often want to look at your posture and assess imbalances. As you can understand this takes time but it’s also important to ensure there is enough time to treat.

Will it hurt?

Honestly? We can’t guarantee it won’t be painful but it will be important for you to be honest with us and tell us if it’s painful. We use a pain scale where 0 is you can’t feel anything and 10 is that you’re going to hit the ceiling, or hit us! The maximum we want to reach is 7, however there will be the odd occasion that it might get to an 8. If you’re concerned, tell us and we will work within those limits.

Should I expect discomfort post treatment?

Again, it will depend on the type of treatment. On occasions you may experience discomfort for a day or two post treatment however if you’re concerned then you can always give us a call.

I am under 18; can you treat me?

Yes, but a parent or guardian must always be present. If you’re over 18 and you want somebody to be with you while you’re treated, then we are completely comfortable with somebody else being present.

Can I question you?

Absolutely. We’re here to answer questions and to address any concerns you may have.

Can somebody accompany me to my appointment?

Of course! It is extremely important that you are at ease during your appointment so if that means bringing somebody to chaperone you then that is no problem.

We are however unable to provide chaperones so this will need to be organised by yourself.
