Welcome ~ Client Information Forms

Once you arrive at Physical Therapy Associates, our front desk will greet you and ask you to fill out a Wellness Chart. The Wellness Chart is where you record any medical history, past/present injuries and other physical conditions we should be made aware of. Your massage therapist will greet you and review the Wellness Chart with you. They will inquire about the reason(s) you are coming in for a massage, your current physical condition and any specific areas in which you are experiencing pain or would like to address during your massage.

 
getting started with your massage

Getting started with Your Massage Therapist

Your massage therapist will take you to a peaceful treatment room where a comfortable massage table dressed with crisp clean sheets awaits. Your therapist will leave the room and wait outside while you disrobe to your level of comfort. Some clients prefer to completely disrobe, while some will remain partially clothed. Once disrobed, Please lie on the massage table, under the top sheet. Your massage therapist will give you a few minutes for this process and will knock on the door to ask if you are ready before entering your room.

 
Massage Etiquette

Massage Etiquette

You will always be draped with the top sheet during your massage session. Your massage therapist will only uncover the part of the body they are working on, ensuring that your modesty is respected at all times. You can expect a tranquil and comfortable environment during your massage. The massage table is padded and a heating blanket is placed beneath the sheet, which you can have adjusted to your preference. There will be relaxing music playing, unless you request otherwise, and the room should be quiet, with no outside distractions.

During your massage

Before beginning the session, your therapist will ask you to alert them if, at any time during the session, a technique or stroke they are using is uncomfortable. Depending on your specific needs or requests, your massage therapist will either perform a customized full-body massage (for general relaxation and stress reduction) or focus on the specific parts of your body that you have requested. We only use the highest quality hypoallergenic massage creams and lotions for your massage.

 
Ensuring your wellness

Ensuring your wellness

Once your massage therapy session is complete, your massage therapist will leave the room so you may re-dress. Your therapist will wait outside the room for you with a bottle of water, and then take you back to the front area when you're ready. Our massage therapy sessions vary from 1-hour to 1 ½-hour to 2 hours in length. Each session includes a 5 minute pre-interview and 5 minutes at the end for you to re-dress.

 

Helpfull Tips  

 

1) Plan Ahead: ~ It's helpful to arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment. This will give you time to complete your paperwork and take a few minutes to relax and unwind. 2) Sound Advice: ~ Some people like to talk during a massage. Some prefer to relax without conversation. Do what feels best. We'll follow your lead. 3) Communicate: ~ This is your customized massage. If you have feedback on pressure, room temperature, lighting… let us know. 4) Hydrate: ~ Water flushes out the minerals that were released during your massage while rehydrating your muscles and reducing potential soreness.
