Naturopathic Medicine & Nutrition

Naturopathic medicine restores health by respecting nature, science, and using interventions that do the least harm. Because food is a key foundation of health, nutrition is emphasized. We believe different diets work for different people, constitutions, and conditions - therefore we make recommendations according to individual needs.

 

Herbal Medicine 

Herbs are superfoods and are a step-up from basic nutrition. They are traditionally ingested as a decoction (strong tea). Since we are trained in both Western and Chinese Herbalism, we may suggest Western herbs, Chinese herbs, or even both as we deem fit. These days you can still drink your herbs as a tea, but they also come in the form of powders, pills, tinctures, or syrups.

 

Acupuncture, Cupping, & Moxibustion

Acupuncture, cupping, and moxibustion encourage the flow of Qi to correct imbalances in the body. Acupuncture uses thin needles inserted along channels. Cupping uses heated glass cups placed directly on the body. Moxibustion involves burning moxa (mugwort) on or near the body.

Testimonials

"After only a few sessions with [Dr. Ma], she was able to solve these digestive issues that I spent years struggling with, and in hindsight, misdiagnosed by “Western” doctors. Highly recommend!”

"Dr. Ma has helped me with acupuncture treatments during both of my pregnancies. I found a huge benefit in seeing Dr. Ma. I not only valued her expertise, but I also appreciated her kind manner that made each session enjoyable." 

"Dr. Christine is extremely detailed and thorough and a very compassionate doctor.  She was able to alleviate my fatigue, low energy, and cloudiness caused by an autoimmune disease within a week after months of searching for an answer! I highly recommend!"


 

Our Philosophy

We consider health as the long-term maintenance of balance. With that in mind, we educate our patients on holistic health and how diet, lifestyle, and environmental factors affect it.
