Integrative medicine meets holistic care

about us

Our Values, Philosophy & Team

People who reguarly focus on lifestyle choices and reconnect with their body as a preventative measure are better able to feel healthy, manage stress, and achieve a better quality of life.

Since 1988, we've provided exceptional integrative wellness, massage, acupuncture, bodywork service and a superior level of customer service.

We live in an overtaxed society of high stress, poor nutrition, and unhealthy habits. As more people become attuned to their bodies, they see and feel the benefits of using integrative modalities, hormones and incorporating regular massage and acupuncture into their health routines.

We dive deeper than surface-level symptoms and address your core concern for your health

Our team believes that the path to lasting wellness lies in uncovering the underlying triggers that often remain unnoticed in conventional medical approaches. Rather than simply alleviating immediate discomfort, we investigate interplay of factors that contribute to your health issues and then offer solutions.

The human body is a complex system, where a simple imbalance can cascade throughout the body.

Our team addresses the root causes at this deeper and more fundamental level, while empowering you to restore your natural equilibrium and thrive.

Our commitment is to uncover the ‘why’ and ‘root cause’ behind your health concerns.  We are looking for a lasting transformation and we are here to help. 

Work with our team of specialists at Integrative Whole Body Health Center, and begin your journey towards optimal health and vitality.

Here's why your path to wellness is brighter with us:

Our Team

Hi, I’m Nancy and I’ve been a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner for over 25 years.  Here at Integrative Whole Body Health Center, I’m looking for patients to partner with who are seeking collaborative wellness solutions for their hormone replacement therapy and thyroid health.

I want to get to know you and since you know your body, we can tailor your therapy to your situation; meeting your body’s physiological needs where they are today.  Over the many years working in women’s health (starting with delivering babies), I’ve watched my clients mature.  I realized how important it was to begin helping women as they age gracefully and I evolved my practice into women dealing with hormone and menopause symptoms.  Now that I’ve been through menopause myself, not only can I relate, but I understand how important it is to have a provider who listens to each woman as the individual she is…

My value system has a fundamental belief that you are not just your lab work.  Working with Integrative Whole Body Health Center is turning out to be a wonderful journey.  The entire staff understand that western medicine and prescriptions have a place in our lives, BUT that the integrative modalities and functional foundations have a place in modern medicine too.

We all look forward to working with you at Integrative Whole Body Health Center.

My background of working inside the traditional healthcare system led me to become a nutrition therapy practitioner (NTP). After years of not seeing enough improvement in people’s health, I became disheartened and determined to make a difference.  Over the span of my career I primarily worked for health insurance plans in sales, marketing and business development. I also worked in complementary and alternative medicine as well as lifestyle medicine, which were exciting opportunities in my career that gave me additional experience on how to integrate holistic practices with Western medicine. 

My practice focuses on you, as a unique person, and together we find nutrition, lifestyle and even healthy aging solutions to put you on a path towards optimum health…for a lifetime. I create a custom program that empowers you to lead a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and supports your bio-individual needs. I’m here fro you based on what you need and where you are in your health journey. I will lend my expert knowledge and support to develop a custom program to meet your specific goals, and we’ll modify it along the way.  I won’t be long before you start to feel improvements in your health.
