Each consultation from every practitioner consists of an individualized assessment.
Every client will be asked to complete an intake form that outlines one's personal, family and heath history, along with dietary and lifestyle habits. This will give the practitioner the ability to look at the overall health of the client. We ask that you bring in any lab results, supplements, herbal remedies and prescription drugs that you are taking in order to help facilitate your care with your other health care providers. Upon assessment, recommendations are administered based on each individuals needs.
In holistic healing, the relationship between practitioner and client is very important. Confidentiality, compassion and trust are the key elements to a successful healing interaction. At Surya Health and Wellness, we promise to uphold these principles and look forward to sharing them with you.
