Acupuncture is an ancient form of medicine practiced in Asia for thousands of years. It views illness as an imbalance in the movement of energy within the body. By accessing points along pathways that traverse the whole body, these imbalances can be corrected. Acupuncture uses the symptoms one experiences on a day to day basis as a measure for an individual's energy pattern. Therefore all symptoms are a piece of the puzzle to help understand a person's health.
Community acupuncture is a nationwide movement to create access to acupuncture by removing the barrier of cost from healing.
"Functional Medicine is medicine by cause, not by symptom. Functional Medicine practitioners don't, in fact, treat disease, we treat your body's ecosystem. We get rid of the bad stuff, put in the good stuff, and because your body is an intelligent system - it does the rest."
-Mark Hyman, MD
"We must treat the whole problem of health in soil, plant, animal and man as one great subject."
–Sir Albert Howard
The study of function explains that every naturally occurring food, nutrient and dietary pattern has a specific purpose and design. Viewing food and nutrients in terms of function allows for a broader understanding of nutrients to one beyond calories and structure. Functionally, food contains molecules that are necessary, purposeful, designed to support life, promote well-being and optimal health. Functional nutrition understands the roles of these molecules, and adapts the application of those molecules to meet the unique genetic, environmental and lifestyle needs of each person.
From a functional perspective, health depends on our biological terrain which determines resiliency and our capacity for self-repair.
"You are the sky. Everything else is just weather."

Mindfulness is the practice of bringing your awareness to your experience in the present moment without judgment. In cultivating this practice you get in touch with your innate wisdom and insight.
