How do I practice Naturopathic Medicine?

As a naturopathic physician, I view each patient as a unique individual rather than an isolated set of symptoms. I treat the root cause as well as the symptoms of disease using the least invasive methods possible. The treatments I provide allow the body to optimize its own healing abilities. Patient education is an important part of my practice, as it empowers one to take an active part in their care. I use conventional diagnostic tools such as physical exams and lab tests, as well as diagnostic techniques and laboratory testing unique to alternative medicine. My specialty is helping patients who have tried many other approaches and still have not found an answer to their health concerns.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an effective form of health care that activates the body’s “Qi”/enery by removing obstacles in meridian pathways. These pathways are like energy aquifers in our body and the acupuncture releases pressure and tension, much like springs do for aquifers. Acupuncture relieves pain and inflammation while promoting natural healing by enhancing recuperative power. It relaxes muscles and improves blood flow and nerve conduction. Acupuncture is an extremely safe, all natural therapy, which can be used to treat many conditions.

What is Craniosacral & Visceral Therapies?

Gentle, hands on therapy to release the restrictions in connective tissue, increase blood flow and promote health & harmony between the organs and structures throughout the body.
