What to expect during your first appt:

 

During the initial exam a full health history is taken.  Questions are asked regarding health, symptoms and lifestyle.  An appropriate physical exam may be conducted which may include a pulse and tongue evaluation.

Gathering this information enables our practitioner the ability to effecitively diagnose and detect any specific imbalances of the body that may have contributed to a person’s health concerns.  Our practitioner can then create a well structured treatment plan and project a timeline for care.
