What To Expect – Allergy

Initial Session

The initial session will take about 60 minutes and includes an assessment and a single treatment.  Please complete the New Patient Allergy forms online before your first appointment. This will give us a basic history and an understanding of the symptoms you are experiencing. The assessments are based on the symptoms that you are experiencing. We also use medical allergy test results if you have them available, however they are not required.

Following the assessment you will receive a treatment for one allergen family. The treatment involves the practitioner transmitting subtle representations of the allergens to you. As these subtle representations are being transmitted, the practitioner will stimulate acupuncture points along the spine with a gentle percussion (that feels really good). This stimulation is gentle, non-invasive and pain-free. Once the treatment is complete, the patient should be able to resume contact with the items that had previously caused the associated symptoms.

Upon completion of the initial session, a prioritized treatment plan will be given to the patient to let them know how many additional sessions will be needed to address their symptoms (if any). Only one allergen family can be treated per session. On average, the number of sessions required to resolve the most common conditions are between 4 and 15. The treatment is non-invasive and completely pain free. The treatment does not require the use of needles and does not require follow up with drugs or supplements.

Initial Assessment fee is $200 (includes your first treatment)

Follow Up Sessions

Follow up sessions take about 30 minutes and include a retest of the previous item that was treated to determine whether the body may still be reacting to that item. You will then receive a treatment to one of the allergen families that was determined in the initial session.

The follow up session fee is $100.
