What Do I Need to Do
Before a Massage?
What do I need to do before a massage?
The first thing that happens is that you will be asked to fill out a client intake form which you may download and print at home before your appointment. The intake form lets the massage therapist know about your medical history (scars, surgeries, varicose veins), medications you may be taking (such as blood thinners), and other relevant medical information that your therapist needs to take into account before you get your massage.
Additionally, the client intake form will ask you about the reason you are seeking massage (relaxation, low back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, athletic performance, etc.). It will also let you tell your therapist what level of pressure you desire (light, soothing strokes, moderate pressure, or deep tissue). You will also give consent on this form for your therapist to perform massage on you.
When you meet with your therapist he or she will review your intake form and ask questions if necessary about the information you provided.
