We are a natural healthcare center that treats the entire person as a whole, not just the symptoms, in order to create a more harmonious balance within the body. We offer both acupuncture (NCCAOM board certified) and birth doula (DONA certified) services to the Northern Michigan area. Our mission is to provide the highest quality care to our patients through the hands of our compassionate team members. We are dedicated to a natural, effective and safe approach to preventing and treating disease in the body. Our specialties include pain management, prenatal support, infertility, emotional imbalances, and pediatrics. We use acupuncture, as well as other modalities, to create a relaxed and personalized treatment based on each individual's health.
