Dedicated to Vibrant Health for Central Oregonians for over 21 years.
Integrative medicine is a mind, body, and spirit approach to healing that integrates the best of allopathic
(mainstream Western medicine) with what are known as alternative or complementary practices.
Every practitioner of Integrative medicine has his or her own approach.
My philosophy is to promote wellness and personal responsibility and avoid the use of pharmaceuticals or
other invasive approaches if other, gentler, less invasive ones are available.
I use the following systems in my practice:
Medical acupuncture blending traditional acupuncture systems and a bio-medical understanding of illness.
Includes Korean Hand Therapy ( KHT) a system where pellets instead of needles are used.
Herbology (Chinese and Western herbs)
Functional Medicine A system of alternative medicine that focuses on improving physiological function to improve health. It is a personalized and comprehensive style of medicine that emphasizes assessment, treatment, prevention and management of complex, chronic disease.
Manual Medicine Gentle manipulations following the osteopathic approach used for acute and chronic injuries, pain, and other illness. This includes cranial osteopathy and other manipulation techniques.
Prolotherapy Injections of natural substances (including PRP or platelet-rich protein and embryonic stem cells) into damaged joints and ligaments to heal damaged areas without surgery. Neural prolotherapy is an additional treatment for nerve pain where sugar water is injected close to the injured nerve.
Nutritional Response Testing and NAET Muscle testing or kinesiology to evaluate for organ imbalances, food and environmental sensitivities, heavy metal or chemical toxicity or scars causing energy blocks. This is followed by nutritional therapies and desensitization techniques.
Nutrition Counseling (Chinese, raw food, Ayurvedic, macrobiotic, vegan, and blood type diets)
Intravenous Vitamin Therapy
IV Vitamin C, Myers IV, Gluthathione, Other functional IV therapies.
Energy Medicine used to help balance subtle energy bodies that exist in our body.
