Why the Integrative Approach to Medicine?

The body has an amazing ability to heal. Our job is to release that healing power so that every child can reach their optimal potential. We do this by means of osteopathic manipulative treatment, cranial sacral osteopathy, a whole foods diet, natural medications and nutritional supplements when indicated, an emphasis on early development and a referral network for developmental issues and visual perceptual difficulties.
