HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
We ask for a commitment of ten sessions from all new clients. This will give us an adequate amount of time to work together to create an individual plan based on your assessment.
If you are currently rehabbing an injury, preparing for or recovering from a surgical procedure, we can come up with an individualised recovery plan and recommend a session amount if we think it will be beyond ten sessions.
If you are coming to see us specifically for mobility training then we will talk about your programming in the first session and give you an idea of what it will take you to reach your goals.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
For all sessions please wear comfortable athletic clothing.
What is a session like?
Our sessions always begin with an assessment, whether it is your first session or your tenth. We usually begin by working with you on the table, using Fascial Stretch Therapy to warm up your tissue and expand ranges of motion. We then immediately train your tissue in those expanded ranges, either by getting you off the table or by incorporating tissue training while you're on the table. Stretching is wonderful for opening up your range of motion but if we don't teach your nervous system how to use that range it will simply revert to the state it was in before.
what should I do to prepare?
We recommend you eat a small meal or snack at least one hour before your session and save any heavy meals for after. We also recommend that you avoid caffeine at least one hour before your session (ideally four hours, but we're coffee lovers so we understand that can be a big ask!). Stay hydrated with plenty of water before and after your session.
It's normal to feel a little sore after - you did train after all! Get a good night's sleep and let your body recover. Some movement and stretching in the days following your session should help alleviate any muscle soreness.
can you help me if I'm not injured?
Yes! Mobility training is the best way to mitigate injury and maintain pain-free movement. We firmly believe in building stronger, healthier bodies to head off injury before it happens and to also be more resilient if injury does occur.
