waterfall-elementModern living places a variety of stresses on our bodies that can result in pain or other issues that diminish our experience of well being and vitality. In our practice, we specialize in naturally restoring health through traditional Oriental medicine (acupuncture and herbal therapy), cold laser therapy, body work, and nutritional approaches.
