During the hands-on portion of the treatment your therapist will check in with you to make sure you are comfortable with the environment and the pressure being used.
You will be draped (covered) for privacy and your personal comfort. Only areas of the body needing treatment as described during your initial assessment will be exposed, as per individual comfort level.
Based on your health history form and assessment, your therapist might explain that the plan is to take a moderate approach your first visit to avoid the possibility of significant discomfort post treatment. Following treatments can be adjusted as necessary. It is your responsibility to let your therapist know if anything feels uncomfortable or painful; treatment is always determined by your comfort level at all times.
