Top Questions

What if I'm not sure about what type of treatment I want or need?

Here at Perceptive Touch each visit is individualized specifically for you.  At your first session, we will sit down to discuss your needs, any relevant medical history and your goals to find which treatment best suits you.

Are there conditions that would prevent me from being treated?

Yes,  there are certain medical conditions that are contraindicated including but not limited to acute infection, fever, malignancy, cellulitis, aneurysm, open wounds,contagious skin conditions, advanced diabetes, acute RA, osteomyelitis and so on

What will my first session be like?

I ask that you come in 10 minutes prior to your scheduled session to fill out consent forms, general info and goals sheet. Then we will go back into the treatment room and discuss your needs and tailor a session and treatment plan and get started from there.

Do you treat patients with severe health problems?

Only with a signed consent form from your physician clearing you for treatment and as long as you are medically stable. All final decisions will be made by me and I have the right to refuse to treat you if I do not feel it is safe and appropriate to treat you at the time.

What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial release, aka MFR,  uses specific techniques to release the connective tissue known as fascia, that intersects and surrounds every muscle, bone, organ and vessel in our body. Using a combination of gentle sustained pressure, stretching, rebounding, and unwinding, it facilitates your body's ability to heal properly from injuries and can restore ROM, function and decrease pain.
