Your First Visit

During your first visit, Therese will conduct a thorough health assessment in order to determine the most appropriate combination of treatments. This initial consultation typically takes between 1 – 2 hours. During this time, Therese may ask you questions regarding your medical history, current physical health, and complaints or concerns. A unique procedure plan is then developed to accommodate your goals for treatment, individual physical conditions, and areas of concern.
