It’s important that you feel comfortable starting treatment and that your questions are answered. In order to ensure this, we offer a FREE 30 minute Acupuncture Consultation. At that time we can also review some of your comprehensive and natural treatment options.
If you have never had a holistic treatment before, you’ll probably be pleasantly surprised by the experience. In consultations many clients say it’s the first time that someone’s really listened to them and has taken their symptoms seriously. This is probably because the physicians at Thrive Wellness Center consider every aspect of your health to be important. We realize that all your symptoms, no matter how minor, are part of who you are and essential to the complete picture and diagnosis. Getting the full details of your health history gives us the true understanding of who you are. It’s what is needed to customize a natural holistic treatment plan just for you.
In your first exam, we ask you to fill out a detailed questionnaire and we start by asking about your main complaint. Then we ask you a series of questions about other symptoms that you may or may not have. These would be symptoms that we think may be related in some way to your main complaint. While you might think they’re unrelated, our experience has shown that our body and mind are not separate pieces. They are one. We know you are a complete system meant to operate in harmony.
We also ask you about any major illness that you’ve had throughout your life. This process, together with observations about your complexion, general manner and appearance, enables us to start forming a diagnosis and treatment plan.
We also take your pulses and examine your tongue. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, these are important diagnostic tools.
When we take your pulses, this process is quite different from having your pulse taken in Western medicine. We will be feeling the quality of your pulses, rather than simply the speed. We will also be feeling your pulses in three different positions on each of your wrists. This will enable us to gauge how well each of your major organs are functioning, and whether there are any imbalances between them.
Looking at your tongue will also give us similar insight into what’s happening in your body. We would then put all these factors together to form a preliminary diagnosis, which we will discuss with you. At that time we answer any questions you may have and outline our treatment recommendations. Your treatment might include options such as:
These are a few of the treatment options and usually it is a combination of more than one treatment method. Many times we first deal with the acute issue and then we provide long term Wellness Support to stop any re-occurrence of a problem.
Of course, you have no obligation to continue with any treatments or purchase anything. This Free Acupuncture Exam by a “Licensed Acupuncture Physician” and “Doctor of Oriental Medicine” is “Our Free Gift To You”. Why do we do it? Because we know when you hear what we have to offer you, when you hear about the results we have, you’ll want to book an appointment to ”Awaken the Healer within…”
