It’s a great question. If you’re a frequent visitor to your massage therapist, they’ve probably gotten to know your body pretty well over a period of time. They know what you like and don’t like, where to focus their efforts and how to provide the most impact for your benefit.
Here’s a great overview of why you should develop a treatment plan (click here to read the entire article from Woman’s Massage Therapy).
Everyone has stress, and everyone has someplace where they hold their stress in their body. We also all have certain habits and postures that aren’t great for us. No one has perfect posture all the time. When you get used to holding yourself a certain way, your body creates imbalances in order to compensate. What that means is that everyone can benefit from a massage. That being said, not everyone has the same needs for massage. That is why it is a great idea to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to fit your own, individual needs.
When you go in for regular massages without developing a treatment plan, if you are seeing the same massage therapist each time, they will eventually learn things about your body and develop ways to work with you. By having a treatment plan consultation, you sit down and outline what you need, and the massage therapist can spend a fair amount of time looking at your body and way of movement to pinpoint where you have imbalances and what kind of work will help. This means that you can get to work on the actual problem areas right away.
This is great advice.
Massage therapists, like ours, are trained and certified. They have specific knowledge and years of experience. This translates well into creating customized treatment plans for our clients.
Our therapists are very happy to work with you to provide a plan of action. So whether you’re a first time client or you’ve been seeing our team for years, we can work on a plan that’s beneficial for your body.
Who is a treatment plan good for?
While everyone who plans to see a massage therapist could benefit, it becomes especially important to map out a plan if you’re recovering from an injury. We may need to better understand the cause of your injury, your doctor’s treatment approach and ongoing issues related to that injury.
For example, if you’ve suffered a meniscus tear or an ACL injury, there are specific approaches we would take in helping to alleviate the pain you may be experiencing and stimulate muscles for faster recovery. Massage treatment to these muscles will be helpful to normalize the biomechanical balance around the knee.
