Naturopathic Care

We offer care for the whole family that integrates evidence-based medicine with the best of natural medicine. This means we are trained to provide conventional care (pharmaceuticals, diagnostic labs, imaging, etc) along with complementary and alternative care. Each of our physicians are additionally trained in acupuncture and Chinese medicine diagnosis, providing more tools for you.  

Acupuncture

What is acupuncture good for? The honest answer is almost anything.  Acupuncture is an ancient treatment that has been utilized for centuries in China and eastern Asia.  This form of medicine has been documented through the decades to be effective for pain but it is also exceptional for realigning the organ systems and body to help you feel your best.

Women’s Health

We offer gynecological/pelvic exams, pap smears, and clinical breast exams. We can provide guidance and options for all the phases of a women’s life,  from puberty to pregnancy and motherhood to menopause. We treat a variety of symptoms including painful periods, urinary tract infections, yeast infections, and hot flashes.

Adjunctive Pediatric Care

We are trained in a specialized pediatric technique that allows us to use non-insertive acupuncture tools. Non-insertive acupuncture is  effective in treating a range of ailments including digestive complaints and colds to behavioral and sleep disorders. This technique is effective, gentle and combines well with other forms of treatment. In addition, to our services, we recommend that all pediatric patients  have a primary pediatrician with hospital privileges and after hour care.
