Specialty:

  • Acupuncture
    Acupuncture and acupressure are methods of releasing blockages in energy flows throughout the body (chi or qi through meridians) by stimulating acupoints with needles, while acupressure used pressure. Placebo controlled studies have shown acupuncture to be helpful for reducing pain and nausea, softening scars from surgery, improving vitality and possibly helping immunity.
  • Family Medicine
    Family medicine providers provide comprehensive health care for all members of the family. They may be physicians, nurse practitioners or physician assistants. They serve as a primary care provider for their patients.
  • Integrative Medicine

    Integrative medicine combines evidence-based therapies from multiple disciplines to facilitate a person’s innate ability to heal. The physician and patient work together using conventional Western medicine as well as Eastern medicine practices and movement, mind-body and natural therapies to promote health of the mind, body and spirit.
