When will it feel like I don’t have to just keep coming back on such a frequent basis?

Can you explain why you recommend such a long treatment plan?

Some people find that the problem they came in with, disappears almost straight away. Others, find that it improves with each session, but over the first few weeks, it seems to keep coming back… This can sometimes feel like a boomerang and you can become concerned that while treatment provides relief, it doesn’t seem to be completely going away.

While we KNOW that by the 4th or 5th session, you will be well on your way in the healing process, we have also seen over and over again, that it is not until about the 8th session that clients really start to feel the transformation. by the 4th or 5th session, you will be well on your way in the healing process, we have also seen over and over again, that it is not until about the 8th session that clients really start to feel the transformation.

This may sound weird and off putting, but let me just explain a little…
Within the first session or three, you will notice great relief and more mobility, you likely will even notice that things keep changing and improving throughout the week, between sessions, as your body continues to process, assimilate and make use of the changes and space created within the treatment session. You will feel improvement, but you may begin to feel that by the end of the period between sessions, your body is feeling less comfortable again. If you notice this, it is easy to get disheartened, and wonder whether a change is really happening, or if you just have to keep coming back…

Our message to you, is this: keep an open mind, trust your body and follow the plan that we have created with you. As your body continues to heal and assimilate, a transformation happens! As stated above, this often is around the 8th to 10th session. At this point, you likely still are not “fixed”, but your body has started to stabilise. In this more stable place, your body can relax just a little, allowing you to keep healing and strengthening but at the same time, feel more resilient. Like you don’t just keep falling back into the old habits, movements and pain. And when a small disruption happens, you notice that your body has more resilience, such that previously, when whatever challenge occurred, you would have been in pain for days, now, either you get pain, but it seems to easily resolve itself in a day or so, or does not create a noticeable problem at all.

At this point, the space between treatment sessions can also begin to increase. So that we can continue to stimulate healing and realignment and deal with the underlying issues that contributed to your injury or compensation patterns in the first place, while allowing you to do more home-based maintenance. Allowing you to be in control of maintaining, improving and dealing with any minor flare ups along the way and focus on strengthening yourself in a more balanced way, to assist you in staying well and strong, and without pain.
Some people, quite quickly, forget the problem they initially came in with and become aware of all the other issues, that they either: didn’t realise they had, didn’t realise that we could assist with, or that they didn’t realise ANYONE could assist with! Often, in this situation, you can become so aware of the current symptom and that is not as perfect as you would like yet, that it is easy to forget the symptoms that have greatly improved or even completely disappeared. In this scenario, it is probably not till the later stages of the first or second phases of the treatment process, around 10 sessions or more, that you begin to notice just how far you have come and how good you feel – in general and especially compared to what you felt like when you began treatment.
