Dr. Spellen offers an integrative approach to natural medicine, using the most appropriate combination of therapies for your well being. She rarely employs a single therapy, so her primary care service offered is individualized. This may include craniosacral therapy and other bodywork, lifestyle and nutritional counseling, botanical medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine, hydrotherapy, supplements, and counseling.
Dr. Spellen spends approximately 75 minutes with her patients for their first visit. The first visit usually entails a detailed health history, a focused physical exam, and if time permits a physical medicine therapy if needed. For physical medicine visits, over time the interview portion of the visit becomes less and the treatment time becomes longer. At the end of every visit, Dr. Spellen provides her patients with a treatment plan, or a written description of recommendations made for improving her patient’s health. This plan may include dietary guidelines, lifestyle suggestions, supplement prescriptions, and/or lab work.
