The initial session can last anywhere from 1 hour 15 min to 1hour 30 min. During the first 20-30 min of your initial session the therapist will go through your health history and talk to you about a treatment plan. The next hour or so is a full treatment. Every subsequent appointment is usually 45 minutes to 1 hour long.
