As a traditional osteopathic practice we strive to restore health rather than fight disease. Our mission is to continue the work of Andrew Taylor Still, MD, the father of osteopathy, who stated that physicians should devote themselves to caring for a person’s Health. This uncovered a truth that has provided a guiding principle for the osteopathic profession.
We have a different philosophical approach to healthcare than typically seen in conventional allopathic settings. First we use treatments that are as natural as possible and have the lowest risk for side effects while saving medications and surgery as a last resort. For all our patients we provide nutrition and exercise advice as well as perform osteopathic manipulation. If needed, we will add supplements, herbs, medications, injections, or whatever else necessary to help our patients get better. We will also refer to both conventional (neurology, orthopedics, etc.) and alternative (acupuncture, homeopathy, etc.) medicine specialists when appropriate.
Our physicians utilize the full range of Osteopathic modalities, with an emphasis on Cranial Osteopathy and Biodynamics. Our practice welcomes patients of all ages and provides osteopathic care for the full spectrum of their healthcare concerns.

Our goal is to create an environment that is peaceful and nurturing for our patients. We therefore ask that cell phones are turned off while you are in the office. We also ask that you refrain from wearing any perfumes or products with strong fragrances, and that you not smoke prior to you appointment, as some of our patients have chemical sensitivities and /or respiratory problems. In order that you may receive the best treatment possible, you may want to arrange childcare for young children who might have difficulty being patient while their parent is being cared for.
Your first appointment usually is an hour in length (sometimes longer) and your follow-ups, as long as thirty minutes.
Our Cancellation Policy
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please contact us at least 2 business days in advance. We do keep a waiting list for patients and this allows us to offer someone else your appointment. It is our policy to charge for a missed appointment and late cancellations.
