You can trust that at C.O.R.E., our values always guide our process of healthcare delivery:
C.onnection O.bjectiveness R.esponsibility E.mpowerment
is what you can expect, and we expect when you become a part of our community at C.O.R.E. and as a part of the larger community beyond our doors.
Your first appointment will be 90 minutes, where we will thoroughly discuss your problems, all possible contributing factors and your needs. We will also go through a physical examination and your first treatment.
Excellence requires time, understanding and clarity, and we don’t want you or us to feel rushed, stressed or unheard. We know this is unusual in our world of supposed ‘quick fixes,’ fast-paced lifestyles and abundant conveniences, but we are committed to transforming the health of our community. We practice conscientious health care that places your health as your number one value and commodity (even if you don’t), and we don’t treat your health as our commodity.
After the first treatment, your practitioner will take time to formulate a treatment plan based on your needs and goals and will take time to discuss this with you. Your treatment plan will give you a clear direction and map to move forward confidently. Subsequent visits are a minimum of 45 minutes and can be up to 90 minutes.
Your treatment plan may include medical acupuncture, soft-tissue therapy (nerve, muscle & fascia release techniques), registered massage therapy, performance or corrective exercises, education, mind-body techniques from mindfulness to body-awareness practices, shiatsu therapy, gentle joint mobilization/manipulations, therapeutic touch, orthotics, ultrasound, and electrotherapy. We make it a point that you are always in control, and we offer an open communication policy at all times because we trust the wisdom and intuition of your body for your health and welcome that in the healing process. Lastly, you can expect to be treated as a whole human being (mind-body-brain-soul), not just a symptom, disease or illness. You will feel heard and connected, which creates a fertile ground for healing. We know this is a great opportunity and experience, and we look forward to being a part of your health team.
