Dr. Manning's Philosophy of the Path to Health:
You Deserve a Doctor Who Puts You First
Have you ever wished you could have more of your doctor’s time to really address all of your health concerns? As a Naturopathic doctor, I take the time needed to get to the root of your symptoms. Our first appointment lasts at least an hour, so that I can really listen to your needs and learn about who you are. We start from ‘where you are’ and build from there, and I’m with you every step of the way, guiding, helping and encouraging.
Activate Your Inner Healer, and Feel Better
Your habits and thoughts play a huge role in communicating to the body how it will function, and by working on these, you will see dramatic improvements in your health. As we work to activate your inner healing abilities, you will become the expert on your body. When you need additional support, I add other treatments tailored to your needs. I have been rigorously trained in several healing modalities and together we will develop a treatment plan especially designed for you. We might use homeopathy, botanical medicine, nutrition, physical medicine, counseling or Chinese medicine to address your health issues. The key is to find what works best for you and I will take the time to make sure that happens.
Improve Your Life By Learning to Manage Stress
Modern life can be stressful, and when stress isn’t properly addressed, the body bears the burden. Over time, we become tired and too distracted by symptoms to enjoy life as well as we could. The gentle techniques used in naturopathy will not only relieve the symptoms of stress (such as hormonal disorders, chronic pain, headaches, allergies, chronic low immunity, anxiety, depression, gastrointestinal issues, and weight gain) but also help create permanent and positive improvements. I use the best techniques of Naturopathic medicine to help you work with and move past old emotional blocks impacting your life and health today.
