Your journey is unique. Together, we’ll work out a plan that makes the most sense based on your goals and needs, and what treatment recommendations come up in our initial assessment. Typically, a series of treatments is recommended in order to support you in returning to health, in rewiring the nervous system for new patterns of health. Treatment may include acupuncture or acupressure, shiatsu, Chinese herbal formulas, or lifestyle recommendations.
Follow up treatment is recommended weekly, twice a week, or every other week for the first 5-10 treatments before moving to a more spaced out maintenance schedule of monthly or seasonal treatments.
I offer the following options to fit the varying needs of where people are. We can determine the best place to start during your initial visit.
Do you have more questions and want to get a feel for whether I can help you or not? Schedule a time to meet for half an hour and we can talk more about what you are looking for. It’s important to feel comfortable with your practitioner. This is a good way to do that.
Initial Health Intake, Assessment, & Treatment
We will spend 2 hours together, understanding the bigger picture of your health, with a thorough health history and a review of your body’s systems. The initial assessment will steer the course for future treatments. The first treatment included in this initial visit will be based on your goals and on my findings from the health intake and assessment.
Follow up Treatments
Step By Step, One By One
These last an hour. You can select an option from below scheduling a series of treatments, or you can take it week by week, step by step, one by one. This allows for ease and freedom in scheduling.
Sometimes a little mini-treatment boost is beneficial between treatments. This is a 30 minute mini-treatment. If scheduled as a second or third treatment in the same week as another treatment, it is available at a special rate.
- Treatment is most beneficial with followup sessions.
- Generally, how long have you been dealing with this? It will take time to reverse.
- Reassessment, treatment goals and recommendations will be made at the end of each series.
- Each individual is unique. The number of treatments will be very individualized for your situation.
Cleansing & Restart Series
A series of five treatments, scheduled within the first three weeks following your initial visit.
This is an excellent place to start for many. It clears the slate to build fresh from a clean foundation. A reassessment and further recommendations are made during the fifth treatment.
Balance & Nourish Series
A series of five treatments, scheduled weekly or biweekly.
Help open circulation, encourage flow in your life and health, help support your body in building up your energy reserves and internal resources for maintaining health.
These are recommended following the initial cleansing treatments, but sometimes are an appropriate place to begin your treatments.
Pain & Rehab Series
A series of five treatments scheduled 1-2 times per week.
This is for folks who overall, feel healthy, but there’s just this one injury that’s getting in the way.
Seasonal Tune-up or Monthly Maintenance
A series of two or three treatments, scheduled within a month of each other.
Recommended with change in season.
Overall, you feel like you are doing well. There are times when things slip a little, but it’s not hard to come back to center. There’s plenty going on in our day to day lives that can challenge us, that can start to add up and have an impact on our health. Coming in for treatment during a seasonal transition time can be an excellent way to support your health and wellness overall.
Herbal Consult & Formulas
Chinese herbal formulas are carefully chosen blends of herbs to support specific patterns of disharmony in the body. With careful assessment, a customized formula is blended to specifically support your health and well-being. This can be done alongside acupuncture and shiatsu to help support the healing process between treatments or independently to support general wellness. All herbs offered have been carefully screened and tested to be free from heavy metals, pesticides and other contaminants. Rest assured, I only source from companies that have rigorous testing procedures.
