Please expect me to arrive about 15 minutes before your appointment to set up my equipment and supplies. All that I need you to provide is an empty space where I can safely set up my treatment table and a sink where I can wash my hands. Living rooms, recreation rooms, or spare bedrooms tend to work well; around 8 by 10 feet of empty space is ideal, though I can work with areas slightly different than that. Please do not feel obligated to clean or tidy before my arrival beyond clearing a space for the treatment.
After I have set up, we will spend a bit of time discussing your health history and your reason(s) for seeking treatment that day. I may ask questions about your current symptoms, observe and palpate (examine by touch) the area(s) to be treated, or take you through some relevant physical assessments. All of this is to help us create a treatment plan that is safe and effective for you. I may offer homework strategies that you can use to help you meet your healthcare goals.
