Herbalists are integrative health care practitioners who use herbs and plants as their primary medicine. Our herbalist will assess patient's health history and lifestyle to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses. With this comprehensive evaluation, the herbalist recommends therapies that may consist of teas, tinctures, or single herbs. Herbal medicine is a great preventative tool to maintain health and is an excellent choice for many chronic and acute conditions.
Hours: Wednesday 2-5 PM
Acupuncture is the insertion of hair-like needles into special points on the body, both for the treatment of ailments and as a preventative measure to maintain good health. A typical session with our acupuncturist involves a comprehensive initial visit and a treatment lasting around 30-45 minutes.

Based on the belief that the body has an inborn ability to heal itself, which can be inhibited by time, poor diet, injury, mental stress, pollution, and medication, chiropractic care uses specific adjustments of the spine and joints to correct imbalances in the body. Most commonly, folks seek chiropractic care for headaches, back pain, and neck pain, though many also use it to maximize their health and wellness.
Hours: Tuesday 4:30-6 PM
Occupational therapists are healthcare providers who support their clients in the quest for a healthy and meaningful way of being. The assessment focuses on what meaningful activities, or occupations, that are important to you and identifies what is working and what is not. Occupational therapy can help with healthy habits or routines for taking care of yourself, building connections with others, exploring how to get involved, using technology for managing your health, making changes in your physical spaces, keeping your mind healthy, and learning about supports in the community. If you could use support in any of the following areas, give occupational therapy a try!
