We welcome inquiries and gladly accept new patients whenever there are openings in our busy schedule. Since we take your health and wellbeing very seriously, we ask new patients to make an equal commitment to their healing journey. Chronic health problems are often complex, multifaceted and longstanding. Because we are committed to resolving these issues for you, we only contract to work with patients who are willing and determined to stay the course with the protocol we specifically design for them.
Once we have been contacted by a prospective patient, we set up a preliminary telephone or office consultation to clarify the scope of the patient’s health concerns, provide direct healing advice and a clearer diagnostic perspective, and determine whether or not to proceed further with treatment.
Initial consultations are usually ½ hour. If we decide with the patient to proceed with a treatment protocol, we then set up a series of follow up sessions. Sometimes, we will move directly to treatment, extending the initial 30 minute consultation to 60, 90 or 120 minutes to include treatment plus in depth mind-body analysis.
When you arrive, please take a seat in the waiting area at the top of the main stairwell. You will soon then be welcomed into the treatment room for the start of your appointment. You will find restrooms immediately to your right. Please wear comfortable clothing and remove your shoes once you enter the treatment room. You will not be required to disrobe for most types of treatment, except when it is necessary to examine particular back or skin areas, or when you are receiving Far-Infra-Red treatment in which case you will be provided with a special bamboo fabric sheet.
Please remember to mute or switch off your mobile phone or other wi-fi device when in the room.
Protocols are set up during the first consultation. Typically, these will involve a series of treatment sessions and/or telephone consultations. The number and rhythm between visits will vary from patient to patient and condition to condition. More longstanding and complex conditions will take longer to resolve than recent or superficial conditions.
LODGING & TRAVEL
For patients traveling in from the mainland, or from out of state, Friday Harbor has a number of hotels, inns, retreat centers and BnBs. Please bear in mind that overnight accommodation is considerably scarcer during the high season summer months, and it is advisable to book well in advance.
The Washington State ferry system operates between Anacortes and Friday Harbor, and also provides inter-island service. The ferry ride between Anacortes and Friday Harbor is approximately 65-90 minutes, depending on the time of day. Ferry rides must be reserved in advance for persons traveling by car. Walk on passengers do not require reservations.
