Naturopathic Medicine

A licensed primary health care profession that emphasizes the prevention and treatment of disease, maintenance of optimal health, and promotion of the individual's inherent self-healing process.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a system of natural health care that has been in worldwide use for over 200 years. Homeopathy treats each person as a unique individual with the aim of stimulating their own healing ability. A homeopath selects the most appropriate medicine based on the individual's specific symptoms and personal level of health. It is recognized by the World Health Organization as the second largest therapeutic system in use in the world.

Chiropractic Care

There are Chiropractic adjustments for all the joints of the body. They provide pain relief, increased movement and improved nerve function; and wellness ensues. Chiropractic and soft tissue massage are well paired. Chiropractic gaps the joints, slightly, and massage relaxes the muscles that hold joints in abnormal positions.

Soft Tissue Care

Deep tissue work (massage), and trigger point therapy round out Chiropractic adjustments and are fantastic for musculoskeletal problems, auto and other accidents and long-term pain.

Somatics

A non-manipulation, non-massage exercise done with the practitioner using the nervous system to relax the muscles of the body. It is pleasant, very relaxing and lasts a relatively long time.

 

Stress Management

Involves sleep hygiene, improving lifestyle (diet, exercise, sleep, etc.), herbal medicines and supplements, relaxation (breathing, meditation, tai chi, yoga, etc.), affirmations, visualization, and assertiveness training, (i.e. correcting cognitive distortions and analyzing thought patterns).
