Appointments are available Tuesday through Saturday at our Lents Town Center, SE Portland office.
If you are ready to start your path to better health with your first appointment at Wellness At The Center, schedule online or call us today.Your first visit consists of of a complete health history and discussion of your primary concerns that bring you to care. This takes about 90 minutes. Follow up visits are typically 60-75 minutes, with a brief update in status and continue to address those concerns. While a standard treatment plan is about 10-12 visits, I like to see improvement within 2-3 visits and hope for significant improvement in 5-6 treatments. This is a generalization though, as every condition and patient is different; it can take longer to elicit change in more chronic issues and people have varied responses to treatment. The most common thing reported following a treatment is an overall sense of calm or wellbeing and increased baseline vitality.
