Conditions Cared For

Naturopathic medicine & traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) can benefit people of all ages with a variety of chronic and acute conditions. We treat a variety of health concerns and cannot list them all, but the most common conditions seen at our clinic include:

Preventive Care:

  • Weight Loss - reduce your body fat percentage, increase your muscle mass, infuse more energy in your life and do this through a scientific program that won't leave you feeling hungy.
  • Acupuncture works very well to relax & release tight muscles in your neck and back, which can be contributing to painful conditions. Muscle knots also can be easily removed using specific acupuncture techniques here at the clinic. Many of our patients find this more effective than deep tissue massage.
  • Anti-aging - what you should be doing to slow down the aging process and facial rejuvenation (cosmetic) acupuncture to reduce signs of aging
