Family Clinic of Natural Medicine, founded by licensed naturopathic doctor Aaron Henkel and staffed by a team of qualified practitioners, promotes long-lasting wellness with research-based acupuncture, massage, and naturopathic treatments. Rather than constantly responding to patients' symptoms of sickness or their mothers' voicemails, naturopathic therapy aims to prevent future disease by harnessing the body's natural healing ability and combining holistic, natural treatments with modern medical technology. Acupuncture treatments draw from some of the oldest medical traditions in the world to assuage a vast array of common aches, pains, and maladies, and therapeutic and relaxing massages ease muscle pain and boost well-being with personalized, hands-on care.
