Experience Natural Healthcare With a Caring Touch
While traditional Western medicine aims to stop infection and pain from the outside using mainly drugs and surgery, naturopathic and chiropractic care work from the inside by marshaling your body’s own natural healing mechanisms and building your immune system’s resistance. Our unique approach means that we spend more time with you and use many hands-on and innovative healing techniques from around the world. Our therapies include:
- craniosacral therapy (CST) • functional medicine • frequency-specific microcurrent (FSM) therapy
- chiropractic manipulation • shamanic healing • nutritional guidance
Though our main focus is on preventive healthcare and wellness, we have been successful treating many illnesses and health conditions that could not be treated elsewhere, including chronic pain, headaches and fibromyalgia.
We believe that minimizing pain and maximizing function are the keys to any successful treatment program for long-term relief. We believe that good care provides pain relief, tissue healing and restoring the strength, endurance and flexibility needed to perform the often-repetitive tasks of everyday living.
No matter where you live in Santa Cruz, Scots Valley, Capitola or Aptos, we can help you overcome your health problem and live a healthier, more fulfilling life.
