FAQ

Appointments are €50. The average length is 45  minutes. Sometimes this may run over slightly so if time is a constraint, let me know in advance. Please allow up to 1 hour for your first session.

I offer some discounted appointments on a Friday morning from 10 am to 1 pm only. These are on a first come, first served basis and are limited to six  per person per year. These are for the unwaged/students/oap’s. For more information on these appointments , please email Patrick@Patrickmoloney.ie

How many appointments you need will depend on the following factors

  • How bad the injury/adaption of your body is
  • How long you have had the injury/adaption
  • How much you are willing to change your old habits in order to progress your treatment

As a general guide you should prepare yourself for 3-4 sessions. It may be more, it may be less. After your first appointment I will discuss a treatment plan with you and we will agree how to proceed. The choice to come back is always yours, you will never be pushed into another appointment.

It’s also important to say that I understand time and financial constraints. Please don’t be afraid to say no and remember you are always welcome back no matter what.

Please wear comfortable clothing that allows your limbs to move and is comfortable for you. Before beginning a treatment, you need to complete the consultation form and possibly a screening form. If you take medication, please let me know.

Please remove your shoes (Socks are always advised) lie up on the treatment table. You will then be examined with a mixture of palpation and Orthopedic tests. Most of the assessment is done by touch and will be explained as necessary/requested.

A treatment will always consist of work on your feet, pelvis, abdomen, shoulders, neck and head with more focus on critical points.

At the end of the treatment I will give you some advice on how to improve your posture and how to move through your everyday life in a way that will prolong your treatment. I may ask you to do some exercises and drink some extra water and we will discuss pain and it’s relationship to injury.

If you have any feedback during the treatment, please feel free to let me know.

Questions are always welcome, I am happy to discuss the treatment and what I’m doing at all times.

Likewise if you want a silent treatment, don’t be afraid to say so.

The treatment itself is calming and you may feel very relaxed afterwards.    If you came in with pain, there may still be some residual soreness but that is normal and remember that pain does not always equal injury and vice versa. Ease yourself back into your normal routine and keep moving.

To get the maximum benefit from your treatment;

  • Try not to book a session on a day that you have a lot to do afterwards, especially vigorous work/exercise/play. This allows your body to absorb the changes.
  • Try to take it as easy as possible for 24 hours after a treatment- you will be able to to whatever you want but its a great excuse to take it easy for a day as much as is possible for you.
  • Take a 15/20 min gentle walk in good posture as soon after your session as possible. Try to move about as much as possible in as relaxed and natural a way as is possible for you.
  • Eat as well as you can and hydrate properly

The following day you may feel sore, a bit like when you have over exercised or recently returned to exercise. This is normal. Drink some extra water, take a walk, move about gently and smoothly and you will start to feel better. Should the soreness continue to the next day, call me and let me know.

Your body will continue to feel the effects of the treatment for about three days. To prolong the benefits, follow the instructions you are given during your session, consider the tips above, improve your posture, movement and sitting habits and get yourself into the correct mindset.

If you get relief after a session and the pain comes back after a few days, make a note of it and let me know at your next session.

If you have concerns in between sessions, email me and I will get back to you asap. If its an emergency, ring/text.
