You need to let us know of any previous injury or general health concerns as it may impact upon your treatment.

Massage: I am aware that the massage therapist does not diagnose illness or disease, does not prescribe medication and does not perform spinal manipulation. If I experience any pain or discomfort during or after the session, I understand that it is my job to immediately inform the therapist so the treatment can be adjusted.
