What to Expect

The Treatment Process

Firstly, the practitioner will take time to find out about your medical history as well as asking about your lifestyle and diet. Acupressure and Seitai manipulation practitioners have a trained sense of touch and will use their hands to find areas of weakness, tenderness, restriction or strain within the body.


Q - What do I wear?
A - Usually at more conventional practises you would be asked to undress to your underwear, but we don’t. Most people find this to be embarrassing and is not needed in the treatment process. As long as you wear something loose and comfortable, i.e. loose t-shirt, sweatshirt, jogging bottoms. The base of the back needs to be reached, so if your leg wear does not have a trouser waistband that restricts that, most things are fine. Jeans are too restrictive and we ask these to be avoided.

Q - Can I bring a friend or relative?
A - Yes if you wish. We have room in the treatment area for someone to sit with you throughout your consultation. Sometimes it helps to have someone with you as moral support.

Q - Does it hurt?
A - Some soft tissue treatment may cause discomfort. The practitioner will tell you what to expect and will want you to let them know if you are in any pain. They will use their hands to treat your body in a variety of ways, using a mixture of gentle and forceful techniques. You may feel a little stiff or sore after treatment.
This is a normal response to the treatment.

Q - How many treatments will I need?
A - The number of treatments you need, depends on the condition and the individual who is being treated. We aim to keep your appointments to a minimum. Your practitioner will be able to tell you within a short period of time how many treatments are required, but we do not pressurize anyone to return, the decision is entirely down to you.
