Q. How long will the session take?
A. Usually our sessions are 60 mins. On your first visit it is advisable to book a 90 min session so we can allow time for the consultation process
Q.What do I wear to the session?
A. It is a good idea to bring with you, or wear, a pair of shorts for the movement analysis. This is just so we can see how your feet, legs and hips are moving through gait. All assessments will be done in barefooted so no need to worry about what you put on your feet.
Q. Do I need to be in pain to book a session?
A. No. We have lots of patients who have intermittent pain and some with no pain at all. You can book as part of your health and fitness regime.
Q. How often should I book an appointment?
A. This will depend on you. Initially, if you come to us with an injury, we will see you for 3 sessions (click to read Our Promise). After this time we will agree on a plan that suits you and ties in with your lifestyle. Well being or “Maintenance” plans can be weekly, fortnightly, monthly or even every 2 months. We will help you find the right plan for you.
Q. How do I pay?
A. You can pay by cash, cheque or direct bank transfer. I’m afraid at this moment we don’t have access to take card payments.
Q. Do you use a treadmill to assess gait?
A. No. A treadmill is a moving platform and as such the foot does not need to propel us forward as much as it does on the ground. This changes everything. When looking at your gait, we need to see you moving on the floor. We need to see if the toes are doing their job to propel you forward and how the spine reacts to that situation.
Q. What is your title? What do I call you?
A. This is a question that is asked a lot. I have qualified in many areas that have given me a range of professional titles such as “Professional Diploma in Advanced Clinical and sports massage Therapy”. That’ s heck of a mouthful! Then there’s “Neurokinetic Therapy practitioner”, “Sports Therapist”, “Movement educator”, “Bodyworker” and “Fascial therapist”. I suppose the one that covers most is “Bodyworker” but it’s up to you. The name, for me, isn’t
the important bit. It’s whether I can help you achieve a pain free body.
Q. Do you accept insurance claims?
A. We’re happy to work with your insurance company. The best thing to do is contact the company and ask if you can receive your treatment with us.
