WHAT TO EXPECT
First time patients will need to sign a consent form and fill out a brief health history. Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early. You will then meet privately with your practitioner who will go over your paperwork, discuss your reason for coming in, and give you the best recommendation for care.
How should I prepare for my treatment?
Please dress in comfortable loose fitting clothing. If you are unable to roll up your sleeves or pants, please bring something to change in to. Please refrain from smoking within an hour before your treatment and avoid wearing strong fragrances that might be irritating to others in the room.
How many treatments will I need?
During your initial consultation your practitioner will discuss the recommended course of treatment for your individual situation.
