I am the founder and the medical director of the Olympus Center for Holistic and Integrative Medicine. I've been in clinical practice for over 30 years. We treat both adults and children using natural therapies such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, medical massage, physiotherapies, nutrition, and homeopathy. The range of conditions we treat is extensive and includes most chronic and acute illnesses, e.g., musculo-skeletal injuries, pain syndromes, women's health issues, digestive disorders, allergies, asthma, headaches, insomnia, depression, anxiety, skin conditions, and stress.
We do not only treat illnesses, we specialize in preventative and anti-aging programs. Many of our clients who initially come for treatment of specific conditions return for acupuncture/bodywork tune-up sessions and elect to continue with herbal/nutritional therapies. Our integrative philosophy provides a comprehensive and resourceful approach to address your specific healthcare needs.
