What to Expect at Your First Massage Appointment

At Pure Health and Wellness Clinic, we believe in providing comprehensive care right from the start. That’s why Daniel Hribar, our experienced remedial massage therapist, goes above and beyond by dedicating an hour and a half to your initial appointment instead of the standard hour.

Getting to Know You & Your Goals

During this extended session, Daniel takes the time to understand your needs and goals truly. He begins by conducting a thorough interview, delving into various aspects of your health history and current condition. By gathering this information, he gains valuable insights into what has been happening with your body and pinpoints the source of your pain or discomfort.

Once Daniel clearly understands your unique situation, he formulates a personalised care plan tailored to your needs. This plan serves as a roadmap for your massage therapy journey, allowing you to work towards achieving your desired outcomes.

A Targeted Approach to Alleviate Pain

Daniel strategically targets specific muscles and areas of your body, focusing on alleviating your pain and promoting overall wellness.

For example, if you’re experiencing upper back and shoulder pain, Daniel may incorporate techniques such as cross-fibre work on the upper trapezius muscles. Additionally, he may apply longitudinal strokes to the rotator cuff muscles, ensuring a comprehensive approach to addressing your discomfort.

A Holistic Focus

Daniel also recognises the interconnectedness of the body and includes the paraspinal muscles in his care plan. By addressing the whole body, he ensures that every part contributes to the overall support of the affected area.

It’s important to note that when it comes to lower back pain, Daniel takes a holistic approach. Instead of solely focusing on the lower back, he targets related areas such as the upper back, buttocks, and hamstrings.

This comprehensive approach ensures that all supporting muscles are addressed, providing you with more helpful and well-rounded care.

Feel Your Best

Whether you want to get the knots out or decompress, we invite you to schedule a session with Daniel today!
