Our practitioners believe that it is a privilege to have the training and experience to work with people across the life span from childhood into adulthood. They share the basic philosophy that the mind has an innate ability to heal itself, that we are who we are and are not defined by our conditions or illnesses, and that with empathic collaboration between the patient and practitioner everyone has a chance to achieve optimal health.
