Hi! Thank you for being interested in working with me. This page is a general guideline for setting up appointments. I hope to answer a few questions about the amount of appointments someone should schedule for upcoming health events like planned surgery, C-Section, postpartum, and general pain. It’s important to know that I treat lots of different issues with the body besides these, but I think it helps to know a general schedule for common issues. If you don’t see your specific issue on this page, reach out to me via email or text and I we chat about your issue.
60-90 min appointments. If you are in a lot of pain and need help now, you can contact me at any time for an appointment. Generally, first check-in for prenatal should be 20-25 weeks. After that, schedule for weeks 32,34, 36-40. If your baby is breech and you’d like help getting the baby head down, contact me via text so we can discuss getting you in more quickly.
60-90 min appointments. I’m happy to see postpartum moms whenever they would like to come in. If you are in a lot of pain from your birth and have been medically evaluated, you can come in as soon as you’d like. In a typical scenario I see new moms starting at 6 weeks in 3 week intervals. However, I see postpartum clients/patients at anytime after birth for urinary incontinence, prolapse or chronic pain–even if your kids have kids. It’s never too late to improve your situation no matter how old you are.
If you have had a recent planned or unplanned c-section you are welcome to come in as soon as you are ready. Sometimes, for post c-section or other abdominal surgeries there can be nerve entrapment causing severe pain. If this happens, get in touch with me as quickly as possible so we can set up an appointment. Otherwise I can see you in 3-week intervals starting at 6 weeks postpartum. If you have lingering postsurgical pain please get in touch. Scars, swelling, and pain can be improved no matter how old your youngest child is. I’ve worked on scars that are 40 years old and have gotten significant improvement.
Postsurgical – liposuction, breast surgery, fat transfer, explant
60-90 min appointments. I would like to see you within two weeks before your scheduled surgery. Postsurgically, I would like to see you weekly for 3-4 weeks depending on your situation. After that, every 2-3 weeks for 4-5 appointments is usually adequate. Most clients need lymphatic drainage therapy soon after surgery to help with pain, swelling and scar tissue formation. Lymphatic drainage pre-surgery is also very helpful with recovery. If you are dealing with chronic postsurgical pain or PCSP, there can still be improvement and in many cases pain resolution. Scars, swelling, and pain can be improved no matter how old your surgery is.
General Pain – low back, neck, hip, etc.
If you have acute pain, it is best to get on my waitlist for a 60-90 minute appointment. You can also email or text me and I can give you a better idea of treatment. Most pain is resolved in a few sessions.
I see many people for regular treatment either with chronic issues or just a tune-up. Those clients/patients usually schedule on a monthly or quarterly basis.
