Rebalance, Renew, Rebloom

What to expect at your appointment...

What to expect at your first appointment with Adrienne:

  • We will spend anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes doing an intake and get to know one another.  "Paperwork" is filled out by Adrienne as you are chatting and telling your story.

  • You will remain clothed.  Please dress for movement.  Wear shorts, sweats, yoga pants, t-shirt, or tank tops for your appointment.  Please no denim.  It is very challenging to feel the nuances of the tissue through denim.  

  • Adrienne will do a quick structural assessment.  This means she will evaluate your posture, gait (she usually does that as you walk in the office), and how you move.  This allows her to quickly form a treatment plan to best fit your needs for the day.

  • You will lie on the table face up or in side-lying position.  

  • The hands-on will begin.  Adrienne strives to respect people's knowledge of their own bodies but will educate you about your anatomy and soft tissue function as she works.  This is part of your education and taking control of your own path to wellness.

  • You will be asked to move around several times during the session.  Cushions and pillows are used generously to keep you as comfortable as possible.

Your next appointment (if you choose to return)...

  • We will check in to see how your body and mind responded to the previous session.  This can take anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes.  Adrienne will take notes on her computer as you speak.  (She has a really bad short term memory.)
  • Structural analysis of your body will be repeated, if needed.  
  • You will remain clothed.  Please dress for movement.  Wear shorts, sweats, yoga pants, t-shirts, or tank tops for your appointment.  Please no denim.  It is very challenging to feel the nuances of the tissue through denim.  
  • ‚ÄčIf, on the very rare occasion, you are in need of a full body massage, then you will be asked to disrobe in privacy, and slip under a sheet.  Full draping is used at all times and modesty is maintained.  Adrienne uses full body massage as a therapeutic tool.  This means it is not the norm in her office.  Adrienne's real skill lies in focused, structural work.
  • The hands-on will begin.  Adrienne strives to respect people's knowledge of their own bodies but will educate you about your anatomy and soft tissue function as she works.  This is part of your education and taking control of your own path to wellness.
  • You will be asked to move around several times during the session.  Cushions and pillows are used generously to keep you as comfortable as possible.

It is Adrienne's distinct pleasure to serve your family in its time of growth!  
Thank you for trusting her with your care during your pregnancy heart
