The online intake form should be completed prior to your first appointment. If this is not possible for you please let us know at least 48 hours prior to your appointment so we can make alternate arrangements with you to complete the forms. Please arrive unaccompanied to limit the number of people in our waiting room.
Your practitioner will conduct an interview with you and discuss the contents of your health history form to determine your specific needs and develop a treatment plan for you. You will be asked to read and sign a treatment consent form as well and given the opportunity to ask any questions about the treatment you may have. If indicated, an assessment may be conducted to form a baseline for your treatment plan or confirm a diagnosis. Your practitioner will then leave the room to allow you to disrobe and get on the treatment table before the treatment begins.
Upon completion of the treatment, your practitioner will leave the room to allow you to get dressed. Once you are dressed they will re-enter the room and may conduct a brief reassessment and/or provide instructions for home care which may include stretching, strengthening, hydrotherapy, ergonomic changes, or lifestyle recommendations as well as provide an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
Your appointment time includes the interview, consents, assessment, treatment, any indicated post-treatment assessment, and home care instructions.
In order to provide safe and effective care it is vital that you provide your practitioner with all health history information regarding your medical conditions, medications, symptoms, surgical implants, or previous injuries. Though some details may not seem important to you, any information you provide may help your practitioner determine the most appropriate, safe, and effective treatment plan for you.
All information is confidential and will only be provided to third parties with your written consent.
For your treatment you may disrobe down to the level of your comfort though we ask that underwear be kept on. You will remain fully draped throughout the entire treatment except for the areas being treated.
Although it is expected to tip in a spa setting, it is not common practice to tip a healthcare practitioner in a clinical setting.
