When the owners of Integrative Healing Arts chose a logo for their natural health center, they opted for the Tibetan symbol of the endless knot. The knot traditionally represents the interconnectedness of the universe, making it uniquely suited to a clinic that seeks to understand the interconnected elements of each patient’s health.
By integrating different healing styles, from chiropractic and massage to traditional Chinese medicine and homeopathy, the three naturopathic physicians that helm the clinic strive to combat ailments without oversimplifying them.

At their spa, technicians can buff away dead skin and fine lines with microdermabrasion and firm features with non-surgical facelifts powered by the Rejuveness system. Visitors can also shop for their own holistic remedies in the natural dispensary, which stocks a range of Chinese herbs, homeopathic solutions, and natural hormones.
