Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession, emphasizing prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage your inherent self-healing process.
The practice of naturopathic medicine includes modern and traditional, scientific, and empirical methods.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of medicine. It is a gentle and effective treatment based upon the concept of energy flow (Qi) through meridians.
Fine needles are inserted on specific points along the meridians to balance the flow of Qi to resolve dysfunction, normalize physiology, and prevent or modify the perception of pain.
TCM is a independent system of thought and medical practice used for over two thousand years to resolve dysfunction and promote health and well-being. TCM treats the pattern of your complete physiological and psychological condition.
We use TCM tools in your treatments, including acupuncture, herbs, moxibustion and cupping, to restore whole-body harmony and balance.
Treatments are based upon the over two-hundred-year-old European healing traditions of using a variety of water-based therapies to stimulate the body’s own healing force.
We use constitutional hydrotherapy, warming sheet wraps and other hydrotherapeutic treatments. The temperature of the water, length of time, and the type of therapy used all have varying restorative effects on your body.
Telemedicine consultations allow you to be seen in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Based upon your consultations, custom treatment plans will be designed for your unique needs using Naturopathic and Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies.
