A Simple Process to Our Natural Approach

Free Initial Consultation

At your free initial consultation you’ll meet with the physician to discuss your case, your medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.

Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan

Once your free consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, the acupuncture physician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific care plan for you. 

Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time, and a you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root of your issue.

Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution

Our natural pregnancy support program is offered as a complement to conventional medical care for common issues during pregnancy. Using the drug-free, natural treatments of Acupuncture and targeted nutritional support, most of our pregnant patients report significant relief from nagging symptoms, and are able to reduce or eliminate prescription drugs.

Transitional Care As Things Stabilize 

Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs after about 8-12 visits. Initially you’ll come every other week, then once a month for a couple of visits, then you will no longer need regular treatments.

We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.

Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your wish.

Taking Care Of Your Friends and Loved Ones 

We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits from our work.

So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, healthy life.

What our patients have to say...

 After several months without conceiving, I decided to take a more active role in the process and turned to acupuncture for help.

I was amazed & I am forever grateful for the assist that we needed to make it happen. - Ashley, 31

I have known Christal for more than 3 years and I can definitely say that thanks to her dedication, knowledge and compassion my pain has been decreasing steadily .
