Welcome to Comal Springs Acupuncture!
Our goal at Comal Springs Acupuncture is to provide high quality care that helps you achieve your personal health goals, whatever they may be. We get quick, effective results so that you feel confident recommending us to your family, friends, loved ones and co-workers. We believe, and our experiences has shown, that once you are strong and well, you do not need ongoing visits or treatments.
Most new patients start with a consultation. This brief discussion is designed to allow you time to meet with Tim discuss the treatment protocol that is right for you. Tim will listen to your story, give you a chance to ask questions as well as review your paperwork. Occasionally, after considering your specific situation, you and Tim will decide that acupuncture treatment and/or herbs are not right for you. In most cases, however, once we determine that we are a good fit, we are able to proceed to the next step, which is your Intake Appointment.
Intake Appointment and Treatment Plan
At your intake appointment, Tim will get all the necessary details about your case in order to formulate a customized Treatment Plan for you. This appointment generally lasts 60 to 90 minutes. If you are opting for acupuncture, you will receive your first treatment at this visit. Your printed treatment plan will detail exact recommendations including the number of visits appropriate for your case, nutritional supplements, herbal medications and dietary/lifestyle adjustments.
Once you have completed your intake appointment, you will return for regular follow-up treatments at a frequency that you and Tim agree upon. The follow-up visits are designed to give ongoing support to the therapeutic goals. Tim will closely monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
As you progress through the treatments and improvements stabilize, your follow-up visits will become less frequent until you no longer need them. You and Tim will work together to decide when it is appropriate to start reducing your follow-up visits.
Ongoing Wellness Care
Some patients choose to come back for periodic visits after their treatment plan has completed. This can be helpful in maintaining a higher level of wellness over the long term. We are happy to continue seeing you if it is something you are interested in. Of course, if for any reason Tim feels that ongoing wellness care might be necessary for you, he will certainly let you know.
