About the Clinic


The root of health is balance in your physical body, as well as, your mental and emotional state. Oriental Medicine is a scientific study of how these three aspects of yourself create total health when balanced correctly. Dr. Whitehead uses Traditional Chinese Medicine and other techniques such as the Balance Treatment. Dr. Whitehead was trained in integrative medicine so she is able to understand your western diagnosis and work along side your western medical treatment and even reduce your side-effects to pharmaceutical medication.


We buy from companies that use natural, organic, and non-synthetic  products so the toxic load to the environment and your health is minimized.


Our vitamins and supplements come from a medical professional grade company, known internationally as the pre-eminent manufacturer of excipient-free, premier quality nutraceutical formulations, super food concentrates and the world's first producer of cellular resonance products that are capable of restoring quantum coherence to the body's inherent biofield. We are able to offer these products below $25 a bottle.


All Chinese Herbal formulas are from companies that provide laboratory testing for microbial contaminants, pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals. Each herb is measured for potency by confirming active ingredients. Herbal Formulas are made using no genetically engineered herbs or ingredients.


We use  organic or wild-crafted essential oils.


We strive to make your experience as quiet and peaceful as we can. Your confront and satisfaction is always important. You  are encouraged to communicate throughout the treatment. So, if the needle is uncomfortable, the pressure not perfect, or if you need an extra heat source to stay warm, just let us know. Once the bodywork session is in progress the therapist stays focused on the treatment and is as silent as possible.
