Therapies

Homeopathy:
Homeopathy means “like cures like.” This style of medicine, founded by German physician Samuel Hahnemann in the early 1800s, involves using highly diluted amounts of plant, animal and mineral sources which can stimulate the body to overcome a diseased state. These same substances may be toxic when given in higher doses to healthy individuals, but in a diluted dose they can cure similar symptoms being expressed by an ill person. Since no material dose of the original substance is left in the homeopathic medicine, it is the body’s response to the remedy that brings about healing rather than the medicine itself.

Botanical Medicine:
Mother Nature plants much of our medicine right in our own backyards! Common weeds and culinary herbs can often be used to treat a variety of health conditions. Herbal therapies can be delivered through tinctures, teas, solid extracts, and capsules or applied topically with poultices, salves, liniments and creams. Herbs possess both biochemical and energetic properties that synergistically support the body’s innate ability to begin healing.

Lifestyle Counseling:
Our daily health habits contribute greatly to our overall sense of wellness and our susceptibility to developing disease. The foundations of health begin with nurturing the body, mind, and spirit with a balance of movement, rest, and self affirmation. Raising your awareness about habits that support or hinder your wellness, can empower you to make changes!

Nutrition:
Nutrition is one of the most fundamental elements of natural medicine because healthy foods can nourish the body and promote healing by supplying our tissues with vital minerals and nutrients. Naturopathic nutritional counseling includes education about food quality, dietary recommendations for disease prevention and management, and guidelines for practicing mindful eating habits.

Craniosacral Therapy:
Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle form of bodywork which can promote relaxation and release of restrictions in the body. In a craniosacral therapy session, the practitioner works with the body’s craniosacral system which consists of the layers of connective tissue (fascia) surrounding the brain and spinal cord, the bones of the skull and sacrum, and the cerebrospinal fluid which ebbs and flows through these structures. Through light touch and gentle pressure, the practitioner can feel for changes or blockages in the flow of the craniosacral rhythm throughout the body and help allow them to release. CST is helpful in treating headaches, insomnia, anxiety, musculoskeletal pain, TMJ, jaw tension and many other conditions.
