What is Naturopathic Medicine? (Excerpt from the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians website):

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession, emphasizing prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process.  The practice of naturopathic medicine includes modern and traditional, scientific, and empirical methods.

Treatment includes nutritional medicine and counseling, botanical medicine, naturopathic physical medicine, massage, and homeopathy.

What is Shiatsu massage?

A Japanese massage performed with the recipient fully clothed.  The massage follows the Chinese meridian system for a full body massage that is both relaxing and nourishing for one’s Chi (energy).

Note About Drugs

Please note that while my training includes pharmaceutical prescription, in the state of California, current licensing laws for Naturopathic doctors requires that we maintain a supervision-type relationship with an MD in order to prescribe most drugs.  I’m willing to consider establishing this in the future, especially if there is a lot of interest expressed by my patients.  That said, I believe I can do a lot of good with lifestyle counseling, herbs, and supplementation, and have patients maintain their relationship with their primary care physician for their prescription medication needs.
