Choosing the right massage therapist for your needs
When you contact Clinique GOTM for massage therapy services, we will make sure that the massage therapist we select for you has the qualifications necessary to treat your condition. Therefore, when you contact us to book an appointment, our dispatchers will ask you a few questions to understand the health condition that has motivated you to call upon our services.
Once our team selects the right massage therapist for your needs, the professional will travel to meet you at the time and location you have chosen. Clients will often want to meet the therapist in their home, but they might also want to book an appointment at their workspace if conditions permit. No matter the location, our professionals travel with a massage chair to carry out their treatment.
Before providing their treatment, a massage therapist will fill out a short questionnaire that will help them understand your health condition and any symptoms that affect your well-being. That will help them determine the best approach and techniques to use.
