What Makes Us Different

At Vital Health, we are different in that we look for what is going on underneath the symptoms you are experiencing.  A symptom is simply your body’s way of telling you that there is a problem that needs to be addressed.  Like the leaves on a tree, symptoms are the visible result of the underlying factors going on inside the body. They are the body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. Cutting off the leaves won’t solve the problem, because the problem is at the root level.

We are “Health Detectives.” We do a lot of investigating to discover WHY your body is not functioning properly in the first place.  Once we discover the root cause of the problem, we are able to put together a Customized Health Recovery plan to help you to re-claim optimal health.

You will find that we take the time to truly listen to our patients and answers all of their questions. Our patients feel heard and know that we truly care about them.

Our New Patient Process

Step 1: Complete Bio-functional Analysis

On your initial visit at Vital Health, you will receive a Complete Bio-Functional Analysis.  The purpose of this intensive visit is to evaluate what deficiencies, imbalances, toxicities and impaired function are at the root of the symptoms you are currently experiencing and/or why your body is not healing at an optimal level.  The Complete Bio-Functional Analysis consists of the following:

Health History:  This is a comprehensive review of your medical and health history – past and present, review of your tests and review of supplements and medications. We will ask a lot of questions and listen intently to what you have to say about your health.

Examination/Assessment Tests:  During the examination portion of your visit we utilize over 27 different assessment tools to help us uncover the reasons for your symptoms.  We are Health Detectives. Our goal is to find out WHY your body is not functioning properly in the first place – not just chase symptoms.

Step 2: Evaluation

Following your Complete Bio-Functional Analysis visit, you will be asked to come back for a follow-up, Report of Findings, visit a few days later. This allows your practitioner to take the time to evaluate your health history, medical records, other data supplied by you, and examination findings comprehensively, and then determine the best treatment approach for you.

Step 3: Report of Findings and Customized Health Recovery & Support Plan

During your Report of Findings visit, we will go over the results of your Complete Bio-Functional Analysis and explain what is happening in your body that is at the root of your health challenges and/or what is inhibiting your body from healing at an optimal level. We will then provide you with a Customized Health Recovery and Support Plan and get you started on achieving your health goals.

We will provide you with a lot of information on this visit.  We believe that knowledge is power.  The more knowledge we can provide you with about your body, how it works, what is wrong with it and what you can do about it, the more power you have to take action to attain and sustain vibrant health. 

Let's Solve This Puzzle Together!

At Vital Health we help people find clarity regarding the root causes of their health challenges and provide step-by-step guidance on what to do, and when to do it, in order to restore health naturally.

Other Options

Pain Only

Are you in pain due to an injury and don’t have anything else going on with your health that you want to address?  Do you not want to go through the Complete Bio-Functional Analysis to start your acupuncture treatments?  We have another option for you.  When you call to schedule your first appointment, simply let us know that you are just coming in to address pain from an injury and would prefer a shortened new patient evaluation.  We do still have to do an examination on your first visit, but we can do a shortened version for those of you that are seeking acupuncture treatments for pain only and do not have other health challenges that you would like to address.  

However, even in cases like this, we still highly recommend doing the Complete Bio-Functional Analysis because it can help us identifly and address underlying issues that may be preventing or slowing your healing process. The choice is yours.

Stop Smoking

When you call to schedule your first appointment, simply let us know that you are just coming in to stop smoking and would prefer a shortened new patient evaluation. We offer special, discounted pricing for those seeking acupuncture exclusively to stop smoking.
