Acupuncture involves inserting very thin needles through your skin at strategic points. This traditional Chinese treatment has been used for thousands of years to relieve pain. Acupuncture and related practices like cupping can treat allergies, anxiety, cramping, insomnia and memory loss. 

Herbal Medicine


Nearly 1 out of 3 people in the United States uses herbal medicine and supplements.  When used correctly, botanicals can safely treat and prevent illnesses.  Some conditions that can be remedied with herbs include allergies, migraines, arthritis and fatigue.

Pain managment


Chronic pain can disrupt your sleep, focus at work, mental health, and even your relationships.  We care about finding your the most effective treatment that will help you feel whole again.  Some options include acupuncture, trigger point injections, physical manipulation, and prolotherapy.

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy


As you age, it's normal to experience hormonal changes like lower sex drive, mood shifts and weight gain.  We can help make these transitions more bearable and potentially eliminate them.  Our physicians use the most accurate and up-to-date testing to pinpoint what is occurring, then we provide therapies that ease the effects of hormonal changes for both women and men.

Nutritional counseling and therapy


Many people struggle with healthy eating, and that cause numerous heath issues.  For those reasons, we look for ways to help each patient improve nutrition.  We will use your nutritional background and laboratory testing as guides to develop a custom plan that will help you reach optimal health.

Medical marijuana certifications


We work with MMJCCC to assist patients who meet the requirements set by the state of Arizona to obtain their Medical Marijuana Certifications.
