FUNCTIONAL PATTERNS TRAINING COLLATERAL MATERIAL
STEP 1: Discovery Call
After your inquiry via Email or Phone , I will communicate with you to set up a Discovery Call to learn more about your needs, goals, schedule preference, and to share information regarding my experience and methodology. During this call if you wish to proceed forward, we will set up an Initial Assessment Date and Time which takes place at my facility or by video if you are a remote client.
Step 2: Complete a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire + Liability Waiver
Once you set up an Initial Assessment Date and Time, you will receive a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) from my LivingMatrix Functional Medicine Software. My athletic training and rehabilitative exercise practice addresses human performance, injury prevention, and addressing the root causes of chronic pain and movement dysfunction. You are unique and this approach necessitates collection of detailed information that you may not have ever provided in the past, but is essential to the success of this approach. Additionally you will receive a link to my Liability Waiver & Release form which you will sign digitally.
NOTE: Please fill out both of these at least 24 hours prior to your Initial Assessment in order for me to have time to read them.
Step 3: Complete an Initial Assessment
The Initial Assessment is your first meeting with me at my facility or by video if you are a remote client.
It is 2 hours in length and and costs $275
The Initial Assessment is structured as an assessment and education session where I assess your posture, imbalances, and movement patterns in order to design a customized prescription using the Functional Patterns system which emphasizes Myofascial Meridians and Sling Systems. During this session, I educate you with tools to get out of chronic pain, enhance athleticism, prevent future injuries, and implement Neural Muscular Re-Education. Functional Patterns "Re-tentions" the Neurofascial System in a 3D ecosystem and teaches weak compressed areas to lengthen and strengthen in an eccentric state and creates concentric strength in the areas that are hypermobile and weak. You will leave the assessment session with a clear picture of what you will need and it will help you make an informed decision about future sessions.
Step 4: Attend Regular Sessions
All regular client sessions are 50 minute customized sessions with an additional 5 minutes to discuss scheduling and complete any administrative communication relevant to your program and session notes to help you with compliance after the session. Please arrive promptly on time to maximize our work together. You may video record your personalized video instructions and and take notes on collateral material to ensure your success. With my guidance you will achieve competence to sustain you own daily practice with solutions for your needs.
Typically, my clients train anywhere from 1-2x a week, with some of them going off on their own after 1-3 packages and checking back in bi-weekly, monthly, or bi-monthly to intermittently check in for guidance and new layers of material. I understand that everyone has different variables of mental and physical learning bandwidth coupled with scheduling needs, and we will communicate to find what works best for your situation.
The cost is structured as follows:
$125.00 for a single session
$500 for a 5-session package ($100 per)
$900 for a 10-session package ($90 per)
Payment: Cash, Check, or Credit Card
Credit Card Payments
All Credit Card payments have a handling fee of 3% if you wish to avoid the fee you may pay in check or cash.
If a client must cancel a scheduled session, such cancellation must be made at least twenty-four hours (24) prior to the scheduled session or the client will be charged for the session. If more than 3 sessions are cancelled or rescheduled in less than twenty-four hours (24) in any 90 day period, I reserve the right to place you on a probationary status until you are in a place to demonstrate better compliance.
Notes & Video Policy
Many times I have my clients film their "homework" with their smartphone or iPad, so please have space on your device if you wish to do so. You may also take notes on your device. If you do not have a device bring a pen and note pad.
Please do not put video or notes on the internet in any capacity.
If you happen to arrive more than 5 minutes early, please feel free to either wait in your vehicle, or enter the front door of the building and wait up front in the waiting room until I come up front to get you as I may still be in my studio area with a client, in a conference call, or on one of my personal wellness breaks. Feel free to let the receptionist at the front desk know you are here for an appointment with me.
Training Package Expiration Policy:
There is a six month expiration date from the date of purchase on all training session packages.
Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis if the clients has a medical issue or employment related issue.
Refunds may be considered due to Extended Hospitalization or Long Term Employment Loss.
With that said, I have expertise in working with the most injured populations and those with terminal illnesses
and I have been able to adapt to many situations using Remote Training capabilities via the web.
Note: For clients who are struggling with chronic illnesses such as digestive health issues, autoimmune diseases, or in chronic pain or on pain medications, I recommend a Functional Medicine Assessment and Prescription with Clarissa Kussin, an elite Functional Medicine Health Coach with a clinical practice. Clarissa will work with you to implement lifestyle modifications that address digestive health, sleep hygiene, and inflammation - all of which play a large role in the success of our work together.
