The Medical Assessment

The Medical Assessment is to ensure there are no medical contraindications to proceed and to identify any issues that may affect your journey. The initial evaluation is where past medical records will be reviewed and a physical exam will be conducted. Your medication regimen will be reviewed as well to ensure there are no drug interactions that can affect your journey or health. We will also thoroughly explore your medical history.The physical exam mostly consists of taking baseline vital signs and non-invasive examination of the cardiovascular and neurologic systems. Clients remain fully clothed throughout this non-invasive assessment, and physical touch is limited.
