Preparing for Your Session

Upon scheduling your first visit please fill out the online intake form.

Your first session will include a 5-10 minute interview to talk about health history, goals and to discuss the best course of treatment.

For all therapies, please come well-hydrated and try to not schedule any big events after a session. The body takes time to integrate, and the goal is to leave you relaxed!

Sessions are 60 or 90 minutes.
