Ayurvedic Medicine

Ayurveda is a natural and preventative form of medicine which targets the root cause of disease by not only treating the disorder but by eliminating problems before they arise.

In India, from the ancient language of Sanskrit, the word Ayurveda is literally translated as the Science of lifespan. It originates as far back as 5000 years and is believed to be the oldest healing science in existence. 

Ayurveda focuses on diet, digestion & nutrition according to each individual, unique in their physical, mental & emotional characteristics, to help restore the body. Through the 5 fundamental elements in nature (earth, water, fire, air & ether) we can understand the human body in 3 basic principles.

Holistic Podiatric Medicine

Your feet are your base of support, your foundation, or your roots upon which all else is formed. If your body and all of its organs, glands and systems contain emotions, feelings, metaphors or messages then your feet have a wealth of information on what may be going on in your life.

When your feet are strong and well cared for this balanced foundation will allow you to confidently address all that may be out of balance in your world.

We believe that acute and chronic foot conditions can be treated with a combination of traditional and non-traditional approaches.

This holistic approach views our feet as the foundation of the body. This foundation must be treated with respect and maintained to preserve them throughout our lives.

 

Osteopathic Medicine

Osteopathic medicine focuses on the whole person, the relationship of the body’s nerves, muscles, bones and organs, and the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Osteopathic medicine is one of the fastest growing health professions, with one out of every five medical students enrolled in a college of osteopathic medicine. 

Osteopathic physicians (DOs) apply the tenets of osteopathic medicine to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of illness, disease and injury. Osteopathic physicians are fully trained, licensed to prescribe medicine and practice in all medical and surgical specialties and subspecialties.  

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is one of the oldest healing arts: Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems.

Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.

Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture and Oriental medicine (AOM) is an ancient and empirical system of medicine based on the concept of qi (pronounced "chee"), which is usually translated as energy. Oriental medicine includes the practice of Chinese herbology in addition to acupuncture. AOM treatments identify a pattern of energetic imbalance within a patient and redress that disharmony in a variety of ways that may include acupuncture needling, cupping, acupressure, exercises such a tai ji quan and qi gong, as well as Chinese herbal preparations. AOM is virtually free of the side effects that accompany many modern medical procedures. Moreover, as a relatively inexpensive form of treatment, it is especially appropriate for reducing healthcare costs. The success of acupuncture today is due to its efficacy, remarkable safety record, cost-effectiveness, and significant public demand.

Colon Therapy

Colon Hydrotherapy (also know as Colonics, Colon Irrigation or Colonic Therapy) is an effective method for cleansing the large intestine. It is safe and painless, clean and relaxing procedure. A soothing flow of filtered water, gently removes digested toxins and waste that built-up inside the colon.

Colon Hydrotherapy has both a therapeutic and solvent action on the large intestine. 

Colon Hydrotherapy improves the hydration status of the client/patient. The water that is absorbed during the session cleanses tissue at the cellular level and removes toxins enhancing elimination through the liver, kidneys, skin and lymphatics, as well as the colon. The body will continue to cleanse after the requested series program and adherence to proper nutrition will promote the physiologic flora and maintain a healthier colon.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. 

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
