What do you think derails someone from achieving their best health? Lack of preparation? Lack of willpower? Lack of resources?
You might be surprised to hear that the number one obstacle people face on their journey toward better health is lack of support.
Everyone wants to get healthy, but we all need someone to hold us accountable and to ask the right questions. We need someone to cheer us on and help us create a plan to achieve our goals. This is a key component that The Wellness Place can help you with, and where my heart as a practitioner comes in.
Ongoing cares is where we pull together all the different things there are out there that can influence your health with practical advice and counseling on how to deal with these things because even the best advice is useless unless you can follow it!
In our initial consult we’ll discuss your health concerns in detail and I’ll learn about your personality and lifestyle. I’ll take all that information and generate a Report of Findings with a wellness plan that we’ll go over in our second appointment, the Case review. Once the Case Review is complete, you’ll have follow-up appointments to maintain your health as needed.
The first follow-up is about two to four weeks after your Case Review. I will review your progress and any follow-up test results. I’ll make additional recommendations as necessary.
The frequency of your other follow-up appointments will depend on your condition and the rate of your progress.
The follow-up appointments can be in-person or via phone/Skype.
If acupuncture is recommended, your treatment plan will be customized to suit your particular concerns. Typically acupuncture is recommended on a weekly basis initially. Then, as the benefits from the acupuncture start to ‘hold’ longer, treatments can be spread out to bi-weekly, monthly or quarterly to maintain these benefits. Many patients find that they develop an awareness of when a treatment can benefit them and can go on to schedule their treatments on an as-needed basis.
