SCHEDULING YOUR FIRST VISIT
Becoming a new patient at Move•ment is exciting! Because our clinic offers so many services, we want to make sure to get you to the right place. To get started, please call the clinic.
Once you are scheduled for a visit, you will be able to log into our online portal and fill out documents, upload insurance information, add family members, pay invoices, and more!
PRIOR TO YOUR FIRST VISIT:
Once you have scheduled your first visit for functional medicine, you will need to complete the male or female intake form. This medical history questionnaire is very important for understanding your health and determining which direction to go. If you have lab work or doctor’s notes from the past 12 months, you may also send those in with your paperwork.
Please complete the entire form and return to our office via email or in-person at least 3 business days before your first visit.
YOUR FIRST FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE VISIT:
When you arrive, please check in with the front desk. One of our assistants will have you complete a urinalysis (UA) and an InBody scan. This process takes about 5-10 minutes and will be done at each consecutive appointment. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids on your way in!
Once you have completed the check-in process, the assistants will show you to a patient room where you will visit with Dr. Heather for an hour. During this consultation Dr. Heather will review your paperwork, ask questions, and discuss the direction your wellness journey needs to go. She will also recommend testing (labs) and have our nutrition assistant, Dawn, set you up with those kits. The testing is done at home and/or at your local lab. Once all testing is complete and we receive your results, we will call and schedule your second visit.
YOUR SECOND FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE VISIT:
Your second visit is scheduled once we have received all test results (lab results) from the recommended testing in your first visit. We call this appointment a Review of Labs and it lasts about an hour. You will come in and complete a UA and InBody (see instructions above) then visit with Dr. Heather. Prior to your visit, Dr. Heather will have studied all results with your health history and put together a complete picture of your current state. She will also have a report of findings and plan for moving forward in healing and wellness. This visit is very important and exciting because you will learn about your unique system and how to bring it to balance in a natural, healing way.
FM CHECK-IN VISITS:
Once your initial 2 visits are completed, you will begin periodic check-ins. These visits are to monitor Dr. Heather’s plan and make adjustments as needed.
Chiropractic, Acupuncture, & Massage Therapy
PRIOR TO YOUR FIRST VISIT:
Once you have scheduled your first visit, you will be prompted to complete necessary intake paperwork on our online portal. Please be sure to have forms finished prior to your arrival.
Our doctors complete a medical exam at your first visit which in total takes about an hour. Dr. Tierney and Dr. Darci use both traditional and modern examination practices such as XRays and Insight scans to create a plan of care best suited to your needs. As a Functional clinic, our providers seek the root cause of dysfunction in order to help you heal and live a balanced and whole life.
At your second visit, your doctor will present a review of findings from either your X-Rays or Insight scan. They will then perform an adjustment and any other discussed services such as manual therapy, exercises, electrical stimulation, Vagus Nerve tuning, and more.
At your first visit, Dr. Heather will complete an exam to understand proper acupuncture placement and then treat you. Once she is finished inserting needles, you will rest with them in for 20 minutes. At following visits, the acupuncture process will be the same (without the exam).
Your massage is a custom experience designed around your health history, current concerns, and level of comfort. You may also choose a specialty massage such as Lymph Drainage or Reflexology, which follow more structured protocols. With all therapies, we recommend discussing any questions you have with Amber prior to care.
