Massage pressure:  

 

Please express the type of pressure you are comfortable with during the massage and if you have health conditions or take medications that impact your pain sensitivity. Deep, painful massage is not always required to have what is considered an effective treatment. Massage should not be extremely painful, but massage can be uncomfortable at times. We do not want you to “Grin and Bear it,” so please let the physiotherapist know your preferred style and pressure depth. All patients are different when it comes to pressure. Some prefer deep pressure, while others are more comfortable with light or medium pressure. We encourage you to have open communication with the physiotherapist throughout the session.
