27 Apr The Nutritional Consultation Process
Every consultation must be wholistic in its approach, treating each client from a whole body approach and not just for the acne she presents with or for the hyperpigmentation that he wants treated.
Numerous underlying factors can conspire to make homecare recommendations and in-clinic treatments ineffective if we don’t take the time from the very beginning to understand who the client is and what may be going on ‘behind the scenes’.
The nutritional consultation provides the therapist with the perfect opportunity to take a deep dive into a client’s stress levels, lifestyle, diet, and sleep patterns that may all determine the skin’s responsiveness to treatments.
This module guides you through an actual consultation form (that you will be able to download) and highlights important questions that must be included in your consultation. These open-ended questions provide a good insight into the overall health and well-being of your client and will enable you to determine what additional homecare and in-clinic support might be required.
At the end of this short course there will be a quiz to help further embed the newly acquired knowledge.
