Treatment and Fees

Dr. Prange provides personalized health care that addresses physical, emotional, and lifestyle factors that may compromise one's capacity to recover from an injury or illness. His work helps patients understand the underlying cause of their condition and provides treatment to help the body heal itself.

New patients receive a 1 hour initial evaluation and treatment to discuss current health concerns, review their history, and to be thoroughly assessed. A musculo-skeletal evaluation, and traditional Oriental pulse and tongue diagnosis are performed to assess both physical and energetic factors. Dr. Prange will discuss his findings and diagnosis prior to administering treatment. Scented lotions and perfumes should be avoided on the day of the treatment. New patients are asked to bring relevant medical tests, medical correspondence, and labeled containers of current natural and/or prescriptive medicines. Dr. Prange's patients are advised to avoid strenuous activity for at least two hours after treatment.
