What is Reflexology?

It is like a massage only the person doing the treatment uses the caterpillar crawl that the Chinese and Egyptians have been doing for thousands of years.

Why does the Clinic not suggest this?

I offer an alternate treatment that is considered Eastern Medicine and many of the doctors are not trained in Eastern Medicine. Many people want a pill to help them. I do not use pills just my hands.

Can I keep my doctor?

Yes, I am not replacing your doctor or the medicine they give you. I try to help your body use the medicine better.

If I get shots or new medicine for numbness can I see you and my doctor?

No. It would be a conflict of interest. You would not know what is helping you the medicine or the treatments.

How often do I need to see you?

At your first visit I will ask you questions about your health and what you want to get out of your treatments. We work together as a team and you are in charge of any decisions that are made. I will follow your suggestions.  Most of the time for people that have had problems for a very long time 3 times a week is suggested. Then twice a week. But the client has the final say.

How much do you charge?

I have an hourly rate of $35.00 as of 6/2011.

Where did you get that figure?

That was the rate the school charged their clients.

Why so cheap?

Many of my clients are on fixed incomes and I don’t want to out price myself that no one comes in.  If a client is happy with the service they can tip if they want to.

Why not bill insurance?

Insurance companies may not cover treatments. I do not have the neither the staff nor the resources to bill insurance. I would also have to take the National Boards that are offered once a year, out of state, and the foot test is first then the hand test. It could take up to 4 years to get my National Boards. I am State Certified in Wisconsin.

If I am seeing physical, occupation therapy can I see you?

Yes! We are working to together to restore your mobility and improve your daily life. PT and OT work on the muscles and I work on the nerves that can control movement. It’s a good team.

What about Chiropractic treatments?

Yes! When a chiropractor does an adjustment they are straightening the spinal areas and waking up the nerves. I stimulate the nerve endings to help the body heal. It’s a good team.
