Located in the heart of Minneapolis, on Lake Street and Lyndale Avenue, we offer patient-oriented care for acute and chronic conditions, as well as for general wellness and stress relief.  We foster a holistic approach, considering the body, the mind, and the spirit in tandem.  We work cohesively with conventional Western medicine, and also brilliantly with other complementary and alternative options.  One medicine for all people and for all things.
