We start with a physical therapy evaluation of about 30 minutes. Together we will review your health history, determine your objectives and develop a treatment plan to help you achieve personal wellness. The remaining time will be hands-on treatment.
Myofascial Release is a hands-on therapy requiring direct contact and traction with skin surfaces.
Please do not apply any lotions or oils prior to your treatment.
Women: loose shorts and a sports bra, a two-piece swimsuit, or bra and undies.
Men: loose-fitting gym shorts.
If you are more comfortable, wear loose clothing to allow hands-on treatment.
We will start and end at your scheduled time. To optimize your time, please arrive a few minutes early.
Appointment time is set aside solely for you. If you are late, your appointment will still end at its scheduled time.
Arizona is a direct access state, so you do not need a prescription. However, if you have a prescription, please let me know ahead of time and bring your prescription that includes your diagnosis codes and frequency with you to your appointment.
My practice is private pay.
I do not bill insurance companies on your behalf, but upon request will provide a detailed bill for you to submit to your insurance provider.
Ask your insurance provider if they will cover your treatment prior to scheduling your appointment.
I will place my hands directly on skin surfaces in affected areas, and apply gentle pressure for 90 to 120 seconds until the tissue begins to soften. A stretch and gently increased pressure is continued to release restrictions in the fascial system. Each hold is a minimum of 5 minutes. Additional physical therapy treatment techniques will be used as needed.
You will also learn self-care techniques to aid in your healing process and enhance the work done in treatments.
We all have different bodies and experiences, so treatment responses do vary. Some individuals may feel relief while others may experience some discomfort prior to relief. Others may have pain, emotions, or sensations that arise and usually subside in one to three days. The so-called “healing crisis” is a normal response to treatment as our bodies release restrictions and toxins. Be sure to drink plenty of water afterwards to hydrate tissue and to flush toxins that have been released from your system.
Some people feel great after their first treatment but more often additional sessions are needed to meet goals.
Everyone heals at different rates depending upon therapeutic goals, current situation and commitment to self-care. Typically what I see is 4-12 weekly, bi-weekly or monthly therapeutic treatments.
Treatment plans are individualized, discussed and updated regularly.
Long-standing issues may benefit from intensive treatment, even daily for a week or two.
Payment is due at the time of service.
Most major credit cards are accepted, including HSA, FSA and MSA.
