The team that learns together….

In January we had the awesome experience of taking a day to focus and continue our education in herbal medicine.  Led by the highly respected teacher, Dr. Yubin Lu, we spent the day learning more about herbal medicine for many common conditions, and how we can easily customize our formulas to get the best results.   From acute sinusitis, to chronic cough, insomnia, acute prostatitis and peripheral neuropathy, we covered herbs and formulations that have great clinical results.   A great day of learning and growing together, we feel even more prepared to help you!  Did you know that we have a full raw and powdered herb pharmacy?  There are many things that herbal medicine can be very effective for, if you are curious to learn more, make sure to ask your provider.


We Love Love!

Most of us have experienced the healing power of love.  This February, when things get dark and cold, we want to focus on the warmth of the heart and the healing power of love.  During the week of Valentine’s Day, Feb 14th, we will be offering small tokens of our love for you, our patients!  We will have small rose quartz heart stones and delicious dark chocolates available to our patients the week of Feb 14th, while they last.  Rose Quartz is a great stone to help heal the and nourish the heart.  It is a stone of unconditional love.

Odds and Ends

Reminder about insurance: If you have had any insurance changes please let the Front Desk staff know and they can update your records and help you navigate your coverage.

Appointment updates: If you know you are going to need to reschedule an upcoming appointment, please do so right away so your practitioner can fill the spot. Did you know we have a waitlist? If you have a desired day/time that isn’t available, please contact the Front Desk and we can get you on the list and contact you if something opens up.
