Each massage session provides time for assessment and treatment using a variety of massage techniques designed to help your body feel freer and stronger. Active lifestyles and daily behaviors (prolonged sitting, excessive typing) add stress to the body’s musculature, often creating tightness or imbalance. If muscle tissue health is maintained improperly, the body can protect itself in ways that often increase pain and reduce functionality
Initial Assessments last approximately an hour and include the first adjustment. Structural, postural, and soft-tissue evaluations are performed by both a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) and a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT). Adjustments last approximately 30-40 minutes and include treatment from both the DC and the LMT. Adjustments are currently only available at the Vinings Home Office.
The main office is in East Cobb at 3827 Roswell Rd #100-A2, Marietta, GA 30062. Massage appointments are available here.
There is an in-home office in Vinings. New patients may book online but will need to speak with owner, Amanda Schoeck, on the phone in order to hold their first appointment. Massage and chiropractic appointments are available here.
First appointments include a full assessment. We aim to be thorough in our evaluation and honest in our communication of treatment intentions based on information learned in the evaluation.
The history and needs of the individual discussed during the evaluation will determine the length of time needed for the initial assessment. Factors that determine the amount of time spent in the assessment could be, but are not limited to, the number of current and previous injuries needing evaluation and client goals. For example, a new massage client who is looking to continue muscle maintenance with LMMT as their new provider may take 5 mins to evaluate while an assessment for someone with years of ROM limitations or major injuries may take upwards of 20 mins to complete.
Initial intake forms can be printed and completed at home, or you can arrive at your initial appointment 15min ahead of time to complete your forms in person.
After your initial appointment, a login is issued to access our patient portal where you will be able to schedule future appointments and keep track of your personal recommendations for home care.
