Your First Appointment

Your initial appointment is an opportunity for us to explore your unique health history, healing goals, and for you to receive bodywork and/or acupuncture. Your first visit will begin a process of charting a path to wellness and bringing the body back into balance.

Please bring your completed health questionnaire. The intake form asks questions about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history. Your current symptoms may sometimes seem unrelated to some of the questions, but all questions are important and provide a holistic approach which views the body as a complex, integrated landscape.

Special instructions will be sent to you via email for how to prepare for bodywork sessions. Check you appointment confirmation email for more information.

Chinese Medical evaluations may also include listening to your pulse and examining your tongue. I may also assess your legs, arms, and abdomen for areas of tension or weakness. Orthopedic evaluations may include postural assessments and manual muscle testing.

We will discuss which treatment modalities will be the best fit for your needs and address any questions or concerns you may have. Referrals will be made as necessary.  I am happy to work with your other healthcare providers to support your health goals.

The results of sessions are cumulative, and your first appointment sets you on a path towards relieving stresses in the body and mind so that you can live life more fully!
