General Appointment Information

An initial consultation and treatment will last approximately two hours; all follow up visits will last approximately one hour, although this is dependent on the specific case. It is asked that you properly prepare for your appointment by:

1) Wearing loose fitting and easily manipulated clothing to allow for proper access to the body i.e. the arms, legs (above the knee), abdomen, and back. 

2) Making sure you eat normally at least an hour before your appointment and remain properly hydrated.

3) Fill out all paperwork (sent via email) at least 48 hours before your initial appointment and make a note of any questions or concerns you may have that are not covered therein.
 
Payment for treatment (including prescribed herbal formulas, etc.) is expected at the time of the visit. Accepted forms of payment are cash, check, and credit card. There is a 3.5% processing fee on all credit card transactions.  While we do not accept medical insurance, we will be happy to provide you with a super bill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement if applicable.

 

 

Cancellation Policy

ATHOS Wellness thrives on patient-centered care, and takes seriously the time spent between patient and practitioner. When this shared therapeutic time and space is disrupted it has the potential to affect the various elements of a treatment. All scheduled patients are expected to arrive on time for their appointment, and are encouraged to arrive a few minutes early. While unexpected circumstances such as emergencies and inclement weather are unpredictable and understandable, the following policy is generally adhered to:

All cancellations or rescheduling should be made at the minimum of 48 hours before an appointment. In the event that an appointment is cancelled outside of this time frame, or is ignored all together, a charge for a full visit will be implemented. A late fee will also be charged for any arrival over 15 minutes of the scheduled appointment. Any exceptions to this policy must be discussed with your practitioner.
