Your first visit with us
Before you come to our clinic, please visit the Manitoba Government's Shared Health Website and go through the questionnaire. If they ask you to contact Health Links, and you are advised to self isolate, or get tested for COVID-19, please call or email to cancel your appointment for the day.
When you arrive, please wait for a phone call from us so that we may re-screen you based on the questionnaire. We do this to keep everyone safe. Once screened, you will be asked to come inside. You will be met at the door, and directed into a treatment room. If you haven't already downloaded, printed and filled out the above forms (green buttons), you will be asked to do so. Once you are done, the person treating you will go over it with you to identify why you are here, and how to proceed with treatments.
Massage patients will be taken through some physical assessment so the massage therapist can treat you more effectively. If you wish, you may wear shorts and a tank top to your treatment. Generally, we treat against skin, so it is typical for the therapist to give you the option of undressing for your treatment and being draped by a sheet for your modesty and comfort. The massage therapist will explain everything as they go and make sure you are informed about the treatment you will receive
If you are coming in for acupuncture, we will ask you to get comfortable on a treatment table. There is no need to get undressed in most cases, we tend to treat distally, meaning we chose points in your arms and legs, and possibly your head and neck to treat you. All you need to do is pull your pant legs up to your knees, and roll up your sleeves to your elbows, and lay back. If you wish, you may wear shorts and a t-shirt, this will be even more comfortable.
Acupuncture treatments are usually about 45 minutes long. We are on a pretty strict schedule with the new procedures we need to follow, so please be as on time as possible.
