Naturopathy is a balance of the ancient healing arts and modern medicine. It is guided predominately by the principle of vis medicatrix naturae – the healing power of nature. In essence the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. This ability sometimes needs assistance and support due to daily stresses and environmental exposures. Naturopaths are primary care physicians who have received undergraduate degrees before they have completed four years in naturopathic medical school.

The practice of Chinese Medicine seems to have come about through a fascinating mix of careful observation of the human body over thousands of years, and intuited information gained by ancient Taoist masters, Qi Gong practitioners, physicians, and sages.
