treatment plan together of how best to help you with your goals. Often the area of discomfort is

After the treatment we will talk about what you can do to help yourself get better results quicker.
In almost all cases, some sort of homecare activity will be demonstrated and given. This will be
tailored to you and your activity levels

modifications to your regular activities.
These will be monitored on a session-by-session basis and adjusted when necessary.
It is the ProActive Massage Policy to provide our clients with the tools necessary to leave
the client confident in their own abilities of self care.
