Clinical Nutrition


An in depth analysis of your health needs and diet will lead to suggested improvements, and prescribed supplements (when appropriate) to address deficiencies, promote health, and treat disease.

Botanical Medicine


The use of plants for healing dates back to the beginning of civilization. Naturopathic Doctors use herbal medicines from various healing systems around the world. Plant substances are used for their powerful healing effects and nutritional value.

Acupuncture and Asian Medicine


Based on balancing the flow of Qi (energy) through meridian pathways, Asian medicine includes the use of acupuncture, herbs, and dietary changes. The stimulation of acupuncture with fine needles helps organs, tissues, and cells by allowing energy to flow more evenly. Sometimes the thought of needles is scary. Rest assured, the needles used are very fine, and acupuncture is not a painful treatment.

Homeopathic Medicine


Based on the principle of "like cures like", homeopathic medicine was developed in the 1700s. Minute amounts of substances are used to stimulate the body's self-healing abilities.

Lifestyle Assessment and Counselling


Daily lifestyle plays a vital role in one's health. Naturopathic Doctors help to identify physical, emotional, nutritional, and environmental factors that affect your health and help you make effective lifestyle changes.

Environmental Medicine


Let’s face it, we live in one very toxic world. There are toxins in the outdoor air, the indoor air, in the food we eat and the water we drink. These toxins can have numerous health consequences including fatigue, fibromyalgia, weight gain, fertility problems, neurological problems, mood disturbance, decreased cognitive function, autoimmune conditions and cancer, just to name a few. Properly identifying which toxins are an issue and how to properly rid the body of these toxins is vital for affected people to restore health.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture


Facial rejuvenation acupuncture, also known as an "acupuncture facelift" improves skin and muscle tone, stimulates the production and dispersal of collagen, and reduces bags under the eyes and jowls. Fine lines and wrinkles can be completely eliminated, and deeper wrinkles can be greatly reduced. Effects are noticed in just a few treatments. The results are not limited to the face alone. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture increases overall vitality.
