“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”

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
"You are the sky. Everything else is just weather."
- Pema Chodron
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.
