Naturopathic Medicine, or Naturopathy is the art and science of disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. It provides the patient with a perspective on health that is different from the current disease-focused model. It is about participating in a plan to improve your health and maintain it over the long-term. Learn More
Osteopathic Manual Techniques
Osteopathy is a natural, drugless therapy and a treatment philosophy that addresses the whole person.
Osteopathy’s gentle, hands-on approach emphasizes the body’s ability to self-heal and self-regulate. This non-invasive manual medicine aims to get to the root of the problem to both clear up the symptoms and their causes. This is accomplished by removing obstructions and restoring proper functioning of musculoskeletal system, nerves, arteries, veins, lymphatics, and the cerebrospinal fluid. Learn More
Just like a house needing a solid foundation, humans need proper alignment for a functional movement and good health. In Osteopathy we lead with the idea that structure dictates function. Muscles attach to bones – when the bones are misaligned, the function of those muscles is affected. Furthermore our bones (spinal column and skull) house our nervous system – a control center to our entire body. Improper alignment of those structures will lead to improper functioning of our nervous system and the corresponding organs.
Moving forward, or moving beyond a plateau in your health can often be simplified by some easy testing. Food reactions can either be immune related (an allergy), which we currently measure with a blood test, or non-immune related (a sensitivity) which is tested very effectively through EDS. Learn More
