Your First Visit

A lot of people have questions regarding what to expect on their first visit.  I've listed and answered some of the most common questions below...

How long is the first visit?

Your first visit will be 90 minutes (an hour and a half).  If it is your first virtual appointment, your visit will be about 60 minutes (one hour).  For neural manipulation your visits will be 90 minutes (and hour and a half) in duration.  

Are there any forms to fill out?

Forms will be available online and a link is sent to your email address.  Providing the correct information is important here because your forms and log-in information is based on your email.  The forms and instructions are easy to follow and can be completed on your phone, tablet or computer.  

Is there parking?

Yes, parking is located off of Georgia street, through the alleyway that runs parallel to El Cajon Boulevard.  The driveway located off of El Cajon Boulevard is actually the parking lot exit, and to enter you have to go around to the alleyway entrance off of Georgia Street.  If there is no parking in the lot, there is plenty of parking on Georgia Street and the surrounding area.  

What should I wear?

Wear loose fitting clothing that can easily be rolled up above your knees or elbows.  Depending on what points I need to use, I may need access to the back or chest as well.  Sports bras are not recommended unless they can be undone in the back.  Leggings are also not recommended as they can be too tight to pull above the knees.  Obviously, I will still be able to treat regardless of what you are wearing, and these are just recommendations so I can best serve you.

Does it hurt?

It shouldn't hurt.  You may feel a dull sensation around the needle, or a strong sensation of the muscle or fascia in NM, but no pain.  If something is painful you can communicate that to me and I can adjust.

Do you take insurance?

I don't bill insurance.  Look at the FAQs about fees and payment to learn more.

What should I expect in the first visit?

In the in-office session, first part of your visit will be a detailed health and social history followed by the actual treatment.  For virtual sessions, it will be similar, only I will be instructing you on acupressure points to press on yourself, using a kit that I send you before your appointment.  After the treatment, we will talk about treatment plan, herbal recommendations and lifestyle recommendations.  I might even give you some "homework" for the next visit.  After that, we book future visits and take payment.  That's it!
