Herbal remedies were used long before western pharmaceuticals were introduced. Supporting the healing processes and conditions with herbs is a complementary approach as well as an individual one. Personalized herbal prescriptions are specifically designed to support the individual at a current time and are prepared with the individual in mind.
We specialize in healing any variety of pain such as headaches, chronic pain, joint pain and muscle pain. We use an array of proven methods and styles to accommodate each individual. Our goal is to treat and relieve your pain permanently by treating the root and balancing the branches. You are unique and your care will be suited for your individuality.
Diagnostic evaluations locate the root of your health issues and address them naturally. Acupuncture and herbal prescriptions can help treat many chronic and acute conditions, rather than managing or suppressing them. We also want to see you for regular maintenance in order to keep you aligned in a healthful balance.
We understand that you are not living your best life possible unless both your mind and body are cared for. That's why we take a holistic and integrative approach to addressing any concerns that you may have. Our first priority is you. If we do not have the answers we will work with you to find the people that do.
Our goal is to provide integrative medical care that will prevent and reverse dis-ease. We use fundamental healing principles of a medicine that has grown over thousands of years. Our results prove the most appropriate way to support the body's systems is with holistic guidance and maintenance.
