Payment may be made by personal check, cash, or credit card.

A $35 fee applies for returned checks.

Do you accept medical insurance?

No insurance is accepted.

Can I use my flexible spending or health savings account?

LearnNow can not advise because all plans are different. Please contact your plan representative for reimbursement eligibility and requirements.

If you find that your plan does not cover LearnNow services, it may be a coverable expense if you have a prescription for our services, from your medical doctor. We would be happy to discuss our approach with your doctor if necessary.

Are there forms I need to fill out?

Yes, you will find the necessary forms under the “forms” link. You may print, fill out and bring the forms to your first appointment or email them to info@LearnNowVA.com

How long is a typical session?

A typical session lasts 1.5 to 2 hours. It may seem long but we are talking about things as we go and the time passes rather quickly. The time is even tolerated well by very young children.

Is there anything I need to do before my session?

We recommend that you put some thought into what areas you would like to see improvement in. You may have a huge list of things you want to be addressed.  Our suggestion to you is to look at that list, and identify your top three issues or goals. Knowing that will help a lot when we meet.  We will focus on one at a time but be on the lookout, you may notice improvements that are not even related to the area you want to work on.

What should I wear?

We suggest comfortable, loose fitting clothing.  Pants are better than dresses as acupoints across the whole body are used and it makes life easier for everyone. Clean socks are a big plus as we will likely be touching your ​feet and face. Dress in layers since people often shift between warm and cold during a session. Dangling earrings, bracelets, and necklaces may also get in the way.

Do you use needles?

No needles are used, ever.

What age clients do you work with?

We work with any age, from newborn to the elderly.

Should I have a session if I am sick?

Please use good judgement with this. If you have a fever or are vomiting within 24 hours of your appointment, we would ask that you please reschedule to protect us and our other clients from getting sick.

Should I stop seeing my doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, naturopath?

Absolutely not.  What we do is completely different from them. We find stresses associated with things and help you release those.  As that occurs, you may naturally find that the issues you and your medical professionals are working on evolve, leading you and your doctor to reexamine how you are dealing with them from a therapeutic or medicinal approach.

Will this work even if I don’t understand it?

Yes, and we have a number of people we have worked with who have come to agree.  We have had many who have no prior knowledge of or experience with Energy Kinesiology, and are even skeptical at first, but afterwards are happy to acknowledged the difference the work has made in their life. We’ve also had people who absolutely affirm it did nothing while their family sees clear differences in them. If you feel this isn’t your route, we wish you well on finding what works best for you.

How many sessions will I need before I see results and are results guaranteed?

In most cases, people see their lives improve quickly.  However…LearnNow doesn’t guarantee results.  We won’t promise you any results or outcome about what will happen if we work together.  Because we are all unique, ten people can have the same situation for completely different reasons.  For some people, they find their brain and body self-initiates change in their lives and they start seeing improvement after one session; others find that they need additional sessions working with the same issue, before moving on to another issue. This happens for many possible reasons. It is not possible to predict how many hours will be needed, but most people feel that they are taking steps along a better path after every session.

Do improvements happen immediately or take time?

Some people see the improvement immediately. Other times, people don’t see improvement until they stop and take a look at themselves and their situation a few days or weeks later and are surprised at the difference. It is neat to talk to clients and ask them about how they are doing in an area, after treatment, and their response goes something like this…”I guess I am doing good, I haven’t noticed that issue lately.” We find that people don’t even think about the issue anymore, once it’s gone.

Is this just helping me function and feel good temporarily? 

No.  This is not simply a way to temporarily deal with something. It’s not like a foot-rub which may feel good at the moment, but has no lasting impact.  What we do targets the underlying energetic compensations associated with the things that concern you, and helps you to let them go.  We don’t get rid of the stresses (such as making your boss disappear or muting whining children), but instead by helping you change you so you are no longer activated by these things.  The intent of the work is to help you permanently shift yourself so that your response to those stressors is improved.

Do you work with animals?

Yes.  Believe it or not, the furry friends that are a part of our family can suffer from physical and emotional stressors that affect them in very real ways. We have been able to help with great success.  Contact us for more information please.

What do you NOT do?

We are not doctors and therefore, do not diagnose illness or prescribe medications. We will not recommend nutritional products or supplements, nor do anything invasive. We do not serve as a psychologist, psychiatrist, or other trained mental health professional.

Will the information discussed in my sessions remain confidential?

All information shared and your experience during our sessions are confidential unless release of these records is authorized in writing by the client, subject to the following exceptions:

Information may be released if legally obligated or reasonably allowed to do so, including circumstances where there is clear and imminent danger to yourself or another person. Subject to the usual exclusions dictated by state and federal laws and regulations.
