Duration of sessions
The effectiveness of DMM sessions almost directly improves with finding the ideal session duration, although it will likely differ from person to person.
Initial sessions are shorter. The duration of follow-up sessions are 40 to 50 minutes.
Each person responds slightly differently to a DMM session and the duration may be increased or decreased before and after sporting events depending on what works for the client.
The aim of using media in DMM sessions is aimed at reducing friction between the hands of the therapist and the skin of the client.
Conventional cold pressed grapeseed oil, at room temperature, is considered the standard medium for DMM sessions. Clients who have personal preferences may bring their choice of oil.
Where are DMM sessions available from:
DMM sessions are conducted at Sports Clubs, Gyms, Massage Rooms or at private homes. A private room or area is required to optimize dialogue between therapist and client.
DUE TO COVID-19 ONLY MOBILE SESSIONS ARE AVAILABLE
After the initial consultation is conducted the therapist will leave the room. The client will remove any pieces of clothing which may be stained by massage oil during the session, position and cover him / herself on the massage table, as advised by the therapist.
Importantly the client must cover up any areas of concern with an additional towel. The therapist will return and move the cover to expose only those areas which will be massaged.
Should the client or therapist be uncomfortable at any time or attend to another matter (eg. phone call or message from another source), he or she will ask to stop the session. The therapist will cover the client and leave the room to allow the client to attend to the latter.
