Muscle Therapy Clinic - Your Solution to Pain - Richmond, VA (804) 938-4624

Frequently Asked Questions

1.) WHAT IS MUSCLE THERAPY?

Muscle therapy is the integration of various hands-on techniques designed to manipulate and retrain the muscles to work together to support our body structure during our everyday activities. Over the years we have developed muscle imbalances that have compromised our posture, resulting in pain. Muscle therapy requires a level of discipline, that with specific guidance, training, and treatment, can yield extraordinary results.

2.) WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY FIRST TREATMENT?

Please allow up to an hour for your first appointment. This gives us time to thoroughly discuss your treatment goals, assess your current condition, and create a plan of action.

3.) WILL I NEED TO COME TO MTC MORE THAN ONCE?

In some cases, yes. Your treatment schedule will depend on how responsive your body is. Some people respond immediately, others take time. Together, we will decide upon a realistic treatment plan.

4.) HOW WILL I FEEL AFTER TREATMENT?

You may feel sore immediately after treatment, or it may take a few days. Or you may never feel sore. Everyone’s body reacts differently. Water intake is crucial immediately after treatment to prevent recently released toxins from building up, causing nausea.

5.) HOW LONG WILL A TREATMENT LAST?

Depending on your situation, a treatment can last up to an hour.

6.) HOW IMMEDIATE IS RELIEF?

Immediate relief is certainly possible. You may in fact notice a marked difference as soon as you get off the table. Or, you may begin to notice improvement after several days.

7.) WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Please wear comfortable exercise clothes. No running shorts please.

8.) WILL I RECEIVE FOLLOW UP CARE?

Most definitely! Follow up care is an integral component to your successful treatment plan. We will maintain contact following each appointment to chart progress, answer questions, and review treatment goals.

9.) DOES MTC ACCEPT INSURANCE?

No, but if your health insurance covers massage therapy, we will be happy to give you an invoice so that you can file a claim. Check with your Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account. Therapeutic massage is often an eligible expense! You are welcome to use your card or ask for an invoice for reimbursement.

10.) HOW CAN MTC HELP MY ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE?

Our approach to overall body mechanics through postural fitness and stretching dramatically improves speed, balance, power, technique, and reduces risk of injury. Our list of happy clients includes golfers, runners, tennis, soccer, and basketball players, swimmers, and dancers.
