Q. I know you’re located at 115 Main Street, Suite 2C in North Easton, MA, but where do I park and how do I get to your office?
- A. There is plenty of parking behind our building. You may access the parking lot via the driveway between our building and Bill’s Pizza or by turning left from Main Street onto Williams Street and making your first right onto Howland Place, which ends at the parking lot. Enter through the main entrance at the back door, then walk up to the very top of the stairs or use the elevator. Please note when using the elevator you must hit the 4th level button. Upon exiting the elevator or stairs, walk through the doorway to the end of the hall, then turn left and we are the first door on the right.
Manual Therapies FAQs
Q. Do I disrobe for Manual Therapies?
- A. For both Zero Balancing and Craniosacral Therapy, treatments are performed with the client fully clothed. Myofascial Release and Lymphatic Drainage Therapy may require skin contact, so some clothing may need to be removed. Hospital-type gowns are provided in this instance.
Q .How long does a typical manual therapy session last?
- A. Because each session is individualized, a manual therapy session may take anywhere from 40 to 60 minutes.
Q. How often and for how long will I need to come for Manual Therapies?
- A. After your initial evaluation, you and your therapist will decide the appropriate frequency for your specific needs. Typically, at the beginning of treatment, we see clients one to two times per week then decrease the frequency as appropriate. We have many clients who continue to come on a maintenance basis once a month. When using Zero Balancing for personal growth rather than a physical problem, it is recommended that an individual plan three sessions each one week apart and then move treatment to once a month.
Q. What conditions are treated at Big Heart Therapies?
- A. Back and neck pain
- Shoulder pain and impingement syndromes
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Poor posture
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Osgood Schlatter Syndrome
- Post surgical pain and swelling
- Body-held mental and emotional stress
Q. What post treatment effects can I expect after a Manual Therapy session?
- A. Each session is a unique experience and post treatment effects may vary. On most occasions, people find they have less tension, more energy and can more easily release stress. However, some people do report mild soreness after receiving a session, similar to post exercise soreness. We encourage clients to listen to the needs of the body. You may find that you need more rest or more movement after a treatment. Please drink plenty of water. Your therapist will be interested in how you felt after the last session. Such information helps us to adjust the sessions to be more specific to your needs. Be certain to call your therapist with any questions or concerns.
Q. Are there things I can do at home to support the work I do in the office?
- A. Yes. Written instructions may be provided and there are some CDs/DVDs available in the office at additional cost.
