Pain & Dry Needling
We can help you to feel like yourself again.
From headaches to sore muscles, we all experience pain from time to time. But what if your pain becomes more frequent and severe—or it affects your ability to work, sleep, maintain relationships, or participate in the activities you love? Powerful pain medications and surgery have serious risks, and steroid injections are statistically ineffective for long-term use and potentially harmful.
We are pain specialists who strive not only to treat the symptoms of your acute or chronic pain, but also to address the root cause of your pain and prevent the problem from spiraling out of control. We have safe, effective therapies that offer maximum benefit with minimum risk. These approaches go far beyond alternative medicine. They represent the emerging, evidence-based standard of care used by pain specialists nationwide.
We can support you on the path to a full recovery.
Women’s Wellness & Fertility
Trusted holistic care for women’s health and fertility
Women have unique health needs—our bodies shift throughout our reproductive years and we need varying support at different life stages. For example:
- Women in their 20s and 30s experiencing acne, PMS, painful periods or migraines
- Women in childbearing years navigating fertility, pregnancy and post-partum
- Women in their 40s and beyond supporting normal transition to menopause
Hormones run not only the reproductive system, but also our experience of stress and fatigue, blood sugar regulation and a whole host of other things. Hormonal imbalances not only affect our sense of wellbeing, but they can intensify chronic pain.
We can help you optimize your hormonal balance to support you through each reproductive phase of your life. We treat: PMS, PCOS, endometriosis, painful periods, perimenopausal symptoms, fertility and overall well-being.
Integrative Health & Functional Medicine
Heal your gut and reduce inflammation
Integrative and Functional medicine is about getting to the root of conditions rather than treating individual symptoms as they arise. Often the digestive system and inflammation are key starting points.
A healthy gut is the foundation of good health. A big part of the immune system resides in the gut. When the gut is inflamed it can trigger autoimmune reactions and generate inflammation throughout the body.
We restore digestive health and reduce inflammation with holistic interventions that include a blend of acupuncture, nutrition, herbal medicine and lifestyle support.
