Nature of services to be provided:
As an Herbalist, a typical session with a client looks like this: I will begin by asking the client a series of questions designed to give me a complete and detailed picture of the client's situation. I then let the client know whether I think I can help them. If I believe that their case is better served by a different practitioner, I will refer them to that other practitioner. I also give them a chance to ask any questions they might have for me. I then schedule them for their next appointment where I will give them step-by-step instructions for following the healing program that I have custom-designed for them. I then do another follow-up with them to track their progress and update my recommendations. I continue to work with them and make myself available to answer questions until they achieve their health goals.
As a registered Massage Therapist, a typical session with a client looks like this: A client will come to me seeking relief for muscular discomfort or stress. I will do an intake to find out any relevant information and discuss with the client what I plan to do, then lead the client to the treatment room and leave the room to allow the client to get onto the massage table. I then return and apply massage and somatic / bodywork therapies as deemed appropriate by me and discussed with the client. The client is, of course free to ask questions, make comments, or request changes to their treatment at any time.
