Our Process is Simple

FREE Initial Consultation

At your free initial consultation, you will meet with your practitioner to discuss your case, a synopsis of your medical history, any medications you are taking, and most importantly your goals.

We want to be certain that our approach meets your needs and that there is a high probability of success for you — before we move forward to the next step.

Assessment & Treatment Plan

Next is the intake appointment. We do a detailed assessment of your symptom picture, medical history, and other pertinent factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan.

Your will receive your first Acupuncture session and be given a treatment plan with exact, easy to follow instructions.

Your personalized treatment plan will include a series of weekly acupuncture sessions and dietary adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root cause of your health complaints.

Ongoing Maintenance Plan

Once symptoms are stabilized and improvements are maintained, transition to a maintenance plan will be outlined as needed to help you keep feeling your best. 

With chronic conditions such as Autoimmune, maintenance plans are usually recommended, though many patients do experience long periods of remission with adherence to the initial protocols.

Other more transitory conditions such as digestive distress, menstrual or hormonal irregularities without a chronic disease factor can expect resolution of symptoms and a return to good health after following a treatment plan.
