Our mission is to assist patients in uncovering blocks to healing in order to maximize health and well being. We work in cooperation with patients, developing a treatment plan based on mutual respect and responsibility. We evaluate health by listening to and observing a patient’s thoughts, emotions, and physical symptoms.
In alignment with naturopathic and Chinese medical principles, we emphasize a constitutional approach. This includes addressing specific symptoms as well as the underlying cause. Symptoms reflect a meaningful picture of a person’s inner state and vitality and demonstrate the appropriate direction for healing. The goal is to harmonize body, mind, and spirit and obtain optimal health.
Our focus is supporting healing from the inside out, both in immediate care matters and chronic health concerns.
