About Your Session with ‘The Body Mechanic,’ Tracie L. Brooke, LMT
Please read the following important information and tips to maximize your experience. There are things you can do to prepare your body and reduce any possible of discomforts during or after your session.
When you book your appointment please check your email. You will be sent an email “invitation” to your appointment. When you accept (respond yes) to the appointment you will receive automated reminder notices (1-2) days prior to your appointment. Please contact if you need to make a change in your appointment.
A minimum of 48 hours’ notice is required to cancel or reschedule your appointment. If you are unable to give proper notice you will be responsible for the full session fee if your time can not be refilled with another client. Life happens and our plans often change so please don’t delay in changing your appointment if needed. No calls and no shows will not be rescheduled until the full session fee is paid. Failure to attend a scheduled appointment with the intent on redeeming a gift certificate will result in the forfeiting of that certificate. Cancellations due to illness and medical emergencies will be handled on a case by case basis.
Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! Please drink extra plain water prior to your appointment (as well as after.) As well, it’s best to limit your intake of caffeine, soda, and alcohol a few days prior to your appointment. Especially during warmer temperatures our bodies need extra water to keep us moving. Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!
Boost your immune system with extra fruits and vegetables in the days prior to (and after) your appointment. Please refrain from eating a full meal before a session. Don’t starve yourself prior to a session; eat light and avoid heavy breads, dairy, and fried foods. Please avoid taking pain medications/relievers and muscle relaxers prior to your session.
Please arrive 10 minutes early to your first appointment to complete a medical intake form and use the restroom so that your appointment may begin promptly on time. If you have a list of medications please bring a copy to attach to your records. Please be on time for all your appointments so that you get the full value of your session.
Communication is the key to an amazing experience! Before the session, please give accurate health history information and include your treatment goals. It’s important to note any previous falls, accidents, and surgeries. During the session, please report any discomfort or sensations you might experience and ask questions as needed. Don’t be afraid to discuss any apprehensions or concerns. It’s important that you be as comfortable as possible during your session. Tracie is committed to your well-being and creating a comfortable, safe, educational and positive experience.
Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! After your session it’s import to drink extra water to flush the stored up toxins in the body out of your system. Water helps reduce residual soreness. Tracie may also make other suggestions regarding specific stretches and strengthening routines that may benefit your healing and overall well-being.
