What is an Appointment Like?


There isn’t a typical visit because each appointment is individulized to you. Visits can be different patient to patient. One patient may require a focused medical appointment to address health conditions, other times the appointment will be a hands on type of therapy, and other times we will be working through emotional stress or trauma.

What Happens During an Appointment?

Generally, a visit starts with a session talking about your medical issues thoroughly, including symptoms other than your main complaint, because they often are related in some way. This is the time to explore getting to the root of the problem, not just putting a bandaid on your symptoms and letting the root problem get worse. Dr. Chan would be your dedicated medical detective.

Then Dr. Chan may do a Chinese pulse analysis which gives insight to the health of your organs and constitutional type. IAT, Intigrative Assessment Technique is a kinesiology based method to screen for organ weakness, vitamin mineral deficiencies and presence of micbrobes and has corresponded well to laboratory findings. Finally Dr. Chan may order blood tests, stool tests, saliva tests or other labs as appropriate. 

At the appointment, Dr. Chan will discuss your health goals and what is most important to you. It is important that you as the patient communicate your needs are, as well as certain treatments that resonate more with you, because Dr. Chan can tailor your health plan to what works best and feels best to you. You'll be given a Health Optimization Plan that outlines what supplements to take and the dosage along with other treatments discussed. 

Follow up appointments may look like your first appointment or may consist of diet and lifestyle customizations, visceral manipulation, craniosacral therapy, brain integration, body memory reprogramming, counseling and/or NET (Neuro Emotional Technique).  Go to the appointments tabs above to schedule your appointment and put an end to your health getting in the way of your life.
