Our philosophy.

We believe that combining Eastern and Western medicine along with a healthy nutrition plan, is the most balanced and effective way to treat  patients today, People + Pets. 


Western medicine provides immediate relief while nutrition, acupuncture and Eastern medicine support the body's innate healing processes for long term wellness. 


Integrative medicine allows the provider to  "cherry pick" the very best conventional and alternative options to obtain the best results for the patient.


Practicing responsible Integrative medicine means doing it the right way - obtaining appropriate certification and keeping up with research and continuing education.
