When you visit Jackie for the first time you will be allocated one hour. A full case history will be taken, including what you have come to see her about but also a medical history to ensure that it is safe to treat you. Please bring a note of any medication that you take, including herbal & aromotherapy.
You will then be given an examination. Depending on the area being treated, you may be asked to remove your upper clothing down to your underwear. If you prefer, loose fitting leggings / tracksuit bottoms are a a good option for back pain. A curtain is available for you to undress & dress behind. Jackie will then ask you to perform a simple series of movements. You will be covered most of the time, with just the area to be examined and treated available for Jackie to examine and treat. Since Covid-19, I no longer provide a towel to cover you, however, you are welcome to bring along your own towel.
Jackie will then use a highly developed sense of touch, called palpation, to identify any points of weakness or excessive strain throughout the body.
