People come to me with everything from sprained ankles to broken hearts and together we initiate a therapeutic process that can be directed toward anything from mending their injury to recreating their life. Likewise, within a supportive relationship, you and I can use acupuncture, homeopathy, herbs, nutrition, spinal manipulation, and other tools to relieve your discomfort and distress, harmonize your energetic matrix, restore your vitality, and enhance nature’s healing momentum.

Essentially, we focus on more than removing symptoms. Together, we aim to illuminate the roots of your illness, discover the transformative opportunities latent in this disruption of “life as it was”, and reawaken your power to create a healthy future.

So, if you are suffering from an acute illness or chronic dis-ease, have been injured, or simply feel that someone new is cracking out of your old shell, come in and I will serve your health care needs.
