Cathy’s commitment to health care stems from her own personal experiences. She was on a path for medical school when she became very sick with Crohn’s disease, a debilitating auto immune disease. She was hospitalized several times over a course of a few years, with many surgeries to save her life. She brushed close to losing that battle. During this long illness, recover and several hospitalizations Cathy turned to the ancient art of Chinese Medicine. Receiving Acupuncture is when her health really started turning around. At this point Cathy realized that medical school was not her destiny. She knew that addressing the underlying health issues and treating the person as a whole was the sure way to health.

Adding in Neuro-emotional treatments for subconscious stressors, triggers and sabotage was the piece that fully rounded her practice to addresses health from the foundation.

Statement: Treating the person as a whole means treating from both functional medicine as well as addressing the body, mind and soul. Our skin is a reflection of our health and our health is a reflection of our stressors both internally as well as externally. Be it Auto Immune, toxins, allergies, or simply frequent colds fundamentally there are three general phases or levels to health. Addressing what the body is immediately reacting to, ridding inflammation and building the immune system. If addressed correctly and completely we are given the best chance for health now and in our future. Regaining our health naturally is vitally important to the generations to come.
