Naturopathic medicine utilizes diet, lifestyle and other natural tools in helping to get you well. It has a unique philosophy of healing, which makes its approach to your health different from many other providers.
I believe that body, mind & spirit are connected. Even if you’re coming to see me for one main complaint, I like to know about your other symptoms and what makes you tick, so I can connect how everything fits together and look for the underlying cause. That’s why our appointment times are longer than most other doctors, so we have time to cover more of what you’d like to work on. This also gives you more space to share your story, as much of it as you’d like me to know.
I can help you manage your condition naturally, reduce or come off medications, have more energy, sleep better, be able to play with your (grand)kids more, be more active, focus better, be more productive, feel less pain.
Offering office visits & house calls, I come to you so you can feel better without the hassle.
Craniosacral & Visceral Therapy
Gentle body work designed to rebalance the body through releasing deep tensions stored in the tissue covering muscles, organs and bones. “Craniosacral” refers to working on tension in the head (cranium), lower back (sacrum) and all of the spinal cord & nervous system in between. “Visceral” refers to a non-invasive technique to reach the internal organs, releasing tension in the tissue surrounding them for optimal organ function. Both are great for relaxation & stress relief, improving overall health, increasing circulation, improving digestion & sleep and decreasing pain & anxiety. A session typically lasts 45 minutes. Most of that time you will be laying face up on a massage table. For visceral work, we may choose a few other comfortable positions to allow gentle access to the tissue around certain organs.
Constitutional hydrotherapy is a relaxing treatment that helps to stimulate the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms. It utilizes hot & cold towels applied to the skin with a gentle electrical sine wave. The temperature contrast works to increase circulation of blood & lymphatic flow, while the sine wave (so gentle it only feels like tingling on the skin) stimulates cellular release of waste & increased absorption of nutrients. It’s called “constitutional” hydrotherapy because the goal is to change the “constitution” or make-up of the cells, thereby improving your overall health. Benefits include: Increased relaxation, Strengthened immune system, through increased white blood cell counts, Decreased inflammation, Detoxification, Improved sleep, Increased energy, Improved digestion & decreased bloating, Decreased muscle & joint aches & pains, Clearer skin. A treatment lasts about 60 minutes. You can spend the treatment laying peacefully on a massage table in one of our two themed rooms: the plant room or the salt room.
