Your First Visit
On your first visit, Sampson Body Balance will do an assessment which involves a confidential health & emotional history including any medical conditions, what medication you are taking and any injuries.
Eileen Sampson will listen to your concerns, assess your individual needs, and develop a treatment plan with you to help you as much as possible to return to normal activities.
In the case of an injury, Eileen will discuss other factors that may be contributing, like lifestyle and nutrition.
Once she has all the information, Eileen will help you choose the best therapy, develop a plan and set up a schedule for you. During your visit, Visceral Manipulation requires access to your abdomen, and massage involves touching your skin. You’ll be covered with a sheet at all times, for your comfort, except for the specific area we are working on.
Some people react differently to touch, and each visit is tailored according to you and your health needs.
You should allow not longer than 1.5 hours for your first visit. Subsequent visits are 30, 45, 60 or 90 minutes each.
