What to Wear
Please wear comfortable, loose, and athletic clothes that allow for a comfortable exam and treatment. Please do not wear jeans or tight fitting clothes.
This is a chemical free/fragrance free office. Please do not wear fragrances of any type in this office, including, but not limited to:
Laundry detergents and laundry soaps
Some of our patients and staff have chemical sensitivities or allergies and are strongly affected by chemicals and fragrances. Please be aware that chemicals and fragrances in fabric softeners and some laundry detergents are too heavily fragranced and should be avoided on days you have an appointment in this office. If you are wearing perfumes or strong fragrances, you may be asked to leave and not be able to see the doctor for your scheduled appointment.
Try to have a little something to eat before, not a heavy meal—and please refrain from drinking coffee before your treatment.
Drink plenty of water.
Use a combination of heat and cold exposure to enhance blood and lymph flow. Contrast showers are a great addition to a treatment. While showering alternate between warm and cold water 2-3 times.
Do your best to relax after treatment. Although osteopathic manual medicine is gentle roughly 20% of patients experience soreness and fatigue after receiving treatment. If this occurs it usually lasts 1-2 days while the body is integrating the treatment.
