Should I talk during my appointment?
Feel free to chat and ask any questions you want, but try and remember this is your time to relax and switch off from the world around you. For upto an hour and a half, you are free from any bills you have to pay, free from the kids and any chores you have around the house, free from work and stresses and free to relax and let your mind wander... and snoring is completely acceptable too, infact it is a compliment! Also, try and remember to relax your body, your therapist is trained to lift your arms and legs without assistance, so just try to lay back, close your eyes and relax... let us do the rest!
