Integrative Therapy
What to expect

Consultation

Initial appointments typically begin with a consultation designed to learn as much as possible about you and what brings you to therapy, as well as to provide information about how the course of treatment might proceed. Consultations are also offered separately to those needing help in charting a course of action with regard to a specific health condition.

Evaluation

Following your consultation, Tamara typically performs an initial evaluation. This may consist of postural and gait assessments, photometric stance analysis, work station evaluations and specific occupational and athletic evaluations such as those for athletes, dancers and musicians. Patients are often brought outside for observation, and musicians are asked to bring in their instruments whenever possible to observe their performance. Tamara also has a piano available for pianists.

Therapy Session

The consultation and evaluation provides Tamara with the information required to begin to address your specific concerns. First therapy sessions are usually brief and the focus will be to relieve or reduce symptoms as quickly as possible. Subsequent therapy sessions will involve a blending of the many methods Tamara uses to help you attain your goals. The number of sessions needed varies from patient to patient and is dependent upon your condition and your participation in the process.

Education

Education is an important part of Tamara’s practice. You may be given instructions and coached on work habits, self-care methods, and therapeutic exercises to augment and enhance treatment. In addition Tamara may offer you specific ergonomic instruction and make recommendations for beds, pillows and car seats.

Therapeutic Implements

In her practice Tamara has on hand various braces, hot/cold packs, orthotics, and various therapeutic devices that may be used as part of your therapy and that you can purchase.
See the Healthy Living Products section.

Follow-up

Patients are asked to call or email within 24 hours after the initial treatment session to report their progress. This information helps Tamara to gauge the results of the treatment and aids in developing a protocol for your next session. Tamara also asks that you call her at any time if you have concerns or questions regarding your condition or the instructions you may have been given.
