New York based Acupuncturist Roberta Mittman offers free health appraisals online through a Health Appraisal Questionnaire. This type of service was only done in her NYC office, until now.

New York, New York (PRWEB) February 19, 2009 — Roberta Mittman, L. Ac., Dipl. A.c., M.S., PLLC, Licensed Acupuncturist and Alternative Healthcare Specialist, has launched a free online Health Appraisal Questionnaire (HAQ) offering her services as a Virtual Wellness Coach to those who seek helpful, personalized, health-related information and support.

The Questionnaire will help to reveal health priorities or individual areas that might need attention, lifestyle changes, or nutritional recommendations. The online service, previously available only to office patients, is now available to all who visit her website, As an added bonus, Roberta also offers a 15-minute phone consultation to anyone who takes the questionnaire.

“I am very excited to utilize technology and offer my contacts, no matter where they live, a personalized health appraisal,” said Roberta Mittman. “Not everyone can come to my office for a face-to-face appointment. But I know many believe, like I do, that information is power, and I am excited to offer some practical, holistic strategies for staying healthy during these challenging times.”

The HAQ, while clearly designed as an educational tool and not as a substitute for medical advice, reveals imbalances in such areas as digestion and stress, which are likely targets in a large portion of the population. Helpful diet suggestions and stress-reduction tips are offered, for example, accompanied by practical, easy-to-follow recommendations for improvement.

“These are basically the same questions that I ask anyone who comes into my office, allowing me to quickly uncover and assess health issues and take action in a natural way” Roberta explains. “This free service provides me with the opportunity to become a member of a healthcare team, regardless of geographical or financial limitations. It’s my way of reaching out to those who need some basic advice or direction to stay healthy and balanced.”

The Health Appraisal takes twenty minutes to complete, can be accessed at one’s convenience, and is available at no charge after signing up at
