Acupuncture is part of the ancient practice of medicine in China and surrounding countries. Still used today in China and all over the world, acupuncture is best known in the United States as a treatment for pain. Although highly effective for alleviating pain caused my muscles and nerves, it is also a valuable tool for many other conditions, insomnia, anxiety, fatigue, acute illness, digestive issues and fertility.
In the theory of traditional Chinese Medicine, the body contains channels and meridians through which the vital energy, Qi (pronounced “chee”) flows. Too much, too little or slow flow of Qi contributes to illness or pain. By using specific points on the meridians and stimulating them with slender acupuncture needles, the body can restore balance and health.
Acupuncture is a relaxing treatment and quite effective, especially when used in conjunction with naturopathic care. Treatments are virtually painless. Often results are seen after the first treatment, and continued care for several sessions, depending on the individual, leads to long term relief and rebalance.
Medicinal herbs have been used for thousands of years to treat many different conditions and to promote health and wellness, and for a good reason! When used properly, herbs work with the body to promote healing and health. They are gentle medicines that assist the body in its normal functions instead of forcing a result, as nearly all pharmaceuticals do. The body has the natural ability to heal itself and botanical medicines provide assistance and a push in the right direction.
Herbal medicine is highly effective at helping fight and preventing common illnesses such as colds, the flu, and allergies. Additionally, they can help the body deal better with stress, manifesting as a strong immune system, a sense of well being, calm nerves, better concentration and more energy. Herbal medicines are beneficial for a wide variety of conditions such as insomnia, menstrual irregularity, asthma, fatigue and injuries.
Some herbs are to be taken short term while others are safe to be taken long term. Not all herbs are right for everyone, so it is important to get appropriate medical advice to find the right herbal combinations for you as an individual.

As an energetic form of medicine, homeopathy is a specific method of prescribing and dosing certain substances in ultra-dilute doses to bring the body back into balance, allowing it to heal itself. Homeopathy is a very gentle type of natural medicine and is safe for everyone, including children and the very ill.
The choice of medicine or “remedy” is based on an individual’s symptoms and any unusual symptoms that may be present. Homeopathy takes into consideration the whole person, including physical symptoms, mental attitudes and like or dislikes and emotional feelings. As said before, homeopathy is gentle and can produce near immediate results for things like acute injury and infections, but for more chronic or for conditions that have existed for a long time, homeopathy takes time to correct imbalance at allow the body to heal. It is often an ideal choice if many unusual symptoms are present because of its effectiveness and absence of side effects.
Diet & Lifestyle
Diet and lifestyle are the cornerstones of good health and are used as foundations for nearly all natural therapies. A healthy diet and exercise are the framework upon which good health rests. Specific recommendations are pertinent for different conditions which provide the body with specific nutrients and vitamins for different metabolic processes. With a plethora of sometimes confusing or contradictory information available in books and online, working with a naturopathic physician provides accurate information that targets specific conditions.
Due to the decreased quality and mineral content of modern food, natural nutrients can be prescribed to supplement a healthy diet. Some supplements are used for general wellness purposes while others target specific areas, such as the heart or reproductive system. We use high potency, high quality natural supplements to help you achieve your health goals.
