What to Expect
During your initial consultation, Brett will sit down with you to gather relevant information regarding your current imbalance or chief concern.
 
This will entail specific questions regarding your health history, as well as sensory observations, tongue inspection and taking your pulse. This process allows the opportunity to better understand your constitutional tendencies and your current presentation.
 
From here we are able to create a treatment plan, which may include one of or a variety of the TCM modalities.
