To aid your examination you will be asked to remove appropriate clothing to uncover the affected areas to allow an accurate assessment. We recommend shorts or suitable underwear.
Please bring a list of any medicines you are taking to the initial appointment.
If we are visiting you at your chalet/hotel, we will bring everything which may be required for assessment and treatment.
Consumption of alcohol prior to treatment may have an adverse effect.
What to expect from your initial physiotherapy appointment:
All physiotherapy interventions will be discussed with you and your verbal consent obtained before any treatment is started. You have the right to decline physiotherapy intervention at any stage.
At the first visit, you will receive a thorough clinical assessment and treatment, which will include asking questions, a physical examination and an individual treatment plan.
What if I have more than one problem?
Depending upon the complexity of the problems you may be asked to prioritise your problems so that we can treat them as effectively as possible.
What happens at the end of your treatment:
If appropriate the physiotherapist may recommend that you rebook for a further session or recommend a short course of treatment. Many physiotherapy treatments can be claimed back via your holidays insurance, the physiotherapist will be happy to discuss this further with you.
However, your physiotherapist may advise you on self management of your problem If appropriate and will often give some exercises to help with this self management.

How to prepare for your massage appointment:

You will be charged the full price for the treatment initially booked.
Please dress appropriately in order for the therapist to uncover the area which you would like to be massaged.

The therapist will find out what type of massage you would like and what areas you would like massaged. The massage will be tailored to your specific requirements and you are able to request deeper or lighter massage at any time throughout the massage. “Firm” to someone can be quite different to “firm” for someone else, so we rely on your feedback to get the correct pressure for you.
