Typically, we review your medical history, current symptoms, concerns, and goals for treatment. We then do a full body assessment, looking for “restrictions” of motion and patterns in your body. Your entire session will be done in a comfortable, private room. The treatment is hands-on, skin-to-skin with a light but firm touch that engages the fascial layers, restrictions, and areas of dehydration. You will be provided with a home program right away so you can continue making progress before your next session.
Myofascial Release is best done skin to skin. For this reason we ask that you wear a tank top or sports bra and loose shorts for women and a pair of loose shorts for men. If you are comfortable you can just be in your bra and underwear as well. While being treated you will be covered by a sheet and/or blanket.
PLEASE DO NOT WEAR ANY BODY LOTION THE DAY OF THE SESSION. IF WE SLIDE ON THE SKIN THE TREATMENT WILL NOT BE AS EFFECTIVE
The first visit is 90 minutes so that we have time to do an evaluation and full treatment. After the first visit ,typically sessions are 60 minutes however we also offer 90 minute sessions by request.
We strive at SoulCare to get you better as quickly as possible.. As every person is unique,even if you have the same diagnosis, the number of sessions will vary. We believe in the wisdom of the body meaning your body has what it needs to heal itself Our treatments help you to remember this and help your body guide itself to wellness and freedom from pain. Most clients will come an average of 6 sessions, some only need one or two sessions to feel better. After our initial session we will have a better understanding of your body and be able to give you a better understanding of how long you will need sessions.
At SoulCare we typically have a patient see the same therapist throughout their time with us. Having said this it can sometimes be helpful to have another therapist see you as well. We are all trained in the John Barnes Method of Myofascial Release yet each therapist is unique and often a second set of eyes and hands can be very therapeutic.
