Dr. Cseszko is extremely proficient at using a refined, unique, and very advanced set of assessment tools, including a highly developed system of applied kinesiology.  This enables him to provide each patient with an individualized treatment plan that is efficient, gentle, affordable and effective.  The initial visit is typically an hour, where the results of the tests and physical examination are discussed in the same appointment.  The cost for the intake, assessment tools and physical examination are all included in the initial visit fee.

Follow Up Visits

Follow ups are strategic visits scheduled after the commencement of the treatment plan to ensure a patient’s individualized health plan is moving efficiently and effectively.  They are typically fifteen to thirty minutes, spaced three to six weeks after the commencement of the treatment plan, unless the patient has specific needs (Acupuncture, Bowen Therapy, Vitamin injections etc.)

Assessment Tools

Patients are assessed and diagnosed with both conventional and naturopathic methods. This thorough and integrated approach allows a greater understanding of the underlying cause of disease and provides effective and appropriate treatment options. 

HEALTH AND MEDICAL HISTORY An intake form will be used to assess your health concerns, health history, current stressors and any other factors that may be related to your specific case.

NUTRITIONAL ANALYSIS Nutrition is one of the foundations to optimal health and will be assessed through diet diaries, blood testing and careful examination of individual needs.

PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS Naturopathic Doctors are thoroughly trained in performing complete physical exams.  Relevant physical exams are performed to illicit further information.

BIOLOGICAL RESPONSE TESTING A feedback technique measuring tissue response where numerous points of contact over the body are established.  This testing allows Dr. Cseszko to assess the body for physical dysfunction/trauma, emotional discourse or general imbalance held within the body’s tissue.

BIO-IMPEDANCE ASSESSMENT (BIA) BIA is a non-invasive testing procedure that measures such things as body composition, metabolic rate and tissue hydration.  It is an excellent tool for monitoring treatments involving weight loss, exercise, chronic illness and overall progress to your specialized treatment program.

CHINESE PULSE AND TONGUE DIAGNOSIS These ancient diagnostic techniques provide further insight into the functioning of the body.

LABORATORY TESTING Depending on symptoms, specific laboratory tests such as standard blood work, salivary testing or imaging may be requested.  The costs for these tests will not be included in the initial visit fee.

Acupuncture


In addition to being a Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Cseszko has been a licensed Acupuncturist for over 13 years.  He has performed over 15,000 acupuncture appointments and is registered with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners & Acupuncturists of BC.  He is one of the few practitioners in BC to hold registration in both fields, which is a great asset to those patients with extended health benefits as it allows for a continuity of treatment that is often covered by insurance.

His combined training in Acupuncture, Naturopathic Medicine and Bowen Therapy enables him to see the body from multiple view points and employ a variety of techniques in an acupuncture session while tailoring a treatment plan that is individualized to each patient.  He has created a very minimalistic and gentle technique that even the most sensitive acupuncture patients can enjoy.
