What to Expect at AAIH
Adams Avenue Integrative Health is a “Community-Style” treatment center.
This means that all our services are conducted in an open treatment space with acupuncture, chiropractic, energy healing, nutritional counseling, and massage all being practiced together. This model is based on the classical Chinese system of health where practitioners can work on multiple patients at once in order to keep costs for all patients affordable. You may overhear discussion of treatments in the next chair or behind a curtain. We ask that you keep all private information to yourself. You’d want others to do the same for you.
We do our best to keep conversation to a minimum and speak in low tones, but our office is in a busy neighborhood and you may find it louder than in other health facilities. We do have soft music in the background, but you still may hear sounds of the office operations or other treatments around you. In case you find it difficult to relax, we suggest you bring an ipod or walkman to try to drown out the other activity of our health center and the surrounding Normal Heights community.
This style of treatment is not for everyone. If you are looking for a private spa-like treatment setting there are several options out there for you, however these often come with a fee structure that might be as much as four times what you’d pay at Adams Avenue Integrative Health. Our goal is to make quality integrative health care affordable and accessible for everyone. We welcome your ideas and suggestions to make your visit more pleasant and effective.
