Treatments combine lifestyle counseling, botanicals, nutrition & Chinese medicine.
Dry needling & trigger point therapy
Dry needling works with channels of energy called meridians. Small needles are used to unblock the flow of energy in the body, and relax areas of tension called trigger points. This is an effective therapy for fibromyalgia, arthritis, injury recovery, muscle tension, and other conditions causing chronic pain. Dr. Narvaez completed advanced certification in trigger point therapy with Rachel Weissman, LAc.
Targeted nutritional medicine, or nutraceuticals, supports healing for many conditions. With increased research into nutritional supplements, treatments are evidence-informed, and Dr. Narvaez is mindful of herb/drug/nutrient interactions. All nutraceuticals recommended are independently tested for quality and efficacy.
Acupressure is especially effective for children, when the use of needles is not an option. Gentle massage at points along meridians supports healing and recovery, particularly for headache, lung conditions, irritable bowel syndrome, and depression & anxiety.
Botanical medicine is based on the use of plants with healing properties that are taken internally or applied to the skin. Since ancient times, many different cultures have used herbs to treat illness and improve vitality. Currently, research into herbal medicine is on the rise. Treatments are based on traditional knowledge and scientific evidence. All botanicals are sourced from organic & sustainable sources.
