The Health Consultation
My consultation with you focuses on all aspects of your health issues- emotional, physical, mental and spiritual. Imbalances in one aspect can affect all other aspects.
The goal as an energy medicine specialist is to recognize the unique expression of your symptoms and then identify and suggest the appropriate treatment.
Determining that treatment depends on gaining a complete understanding of the patient as a whole person. The relationship between myself as a practitioner and my patient is very important.
Trust is an important centrepiece to my Practice. Most patients come to me by referral. It is essential that responses to treatment be communicated fully to me so adjustments can be made as required. Healing is a co-operative process.
Like a good orchestra, trust and respect between us creates a harmonious and productive environment. This is essential to allow a supportive and effective treatment to positively impact your health.
I have long term clients who experiencing this healing relationship respond by referring me to their loved ones. This type of relationship is very important to my Practice.
What do we talk about?
I complete an in-depth consultation covering all of your current health problems. There is no physical examination.
You will be asked questions about your physical, mental and emotional health issues, for example sleeping and eating habits. Stresses and concerns in your life will also be discussed. Every consultation is unique to the patient. There are no set questions in the consultation.
I use a Patient History Form to provide me with detailed information about your family and medical history.
How long is an appointment?
The first appointment takes approximately 1.5 to 2 hours long. Children and pets can take less time depending upon the nature of the problem.
What happens after the consultation?
I analyze the information relayed in the consultation and determine a treatment best suited for you to address your health concerns.
In addition to your health complaint, the following factors may play a part in the selection: your emotional and mental make-up and the way you respond to influences/stresses.
After you start the treatment we arrange to talk (or e-mail) in two weeks time to see how you are responding.
What can I expect?
Every person reacts differently. Generally, natural medicine can act on acute or recent problems relatively quickly. Chronic illnesses typically require more time for changes to occur.
We will schedule a follow-up visit approximately six to eight weeks after the initial appointment. Follow-up frequency depends upon the length and nature of your health complaint. These appointments are typically 45 minutes in length. Follow-ups assess your response to the energy medicine and map out future treatment.
Additional consultations and the overall duration of treatment will depend on the severity and length of your illness. More than one medicine may be required so that balance and full health can be restored.
Communication is a key aspect of my Practice. It is important for me to understand how you are responding to your treatment and how energy medicine is addressing your health concerns.
