Dr. Natalie Metz
My goal is to help you identify and remove obstacles to cure, be they habits or thought processes that stand in the way of your healing process. I can teach you how diet, lifestyle choices, and self-care practices can dramatically influence your health for the better. By deeply listening to your health concerns and goals, I will develop a therapeutic relationship with you that enables us to become true partners on your journey to wellness. Dr. John Bastyr, a grandfather of Naturopathic Medicine, has been attributed with saying that Physical Medicine is a Naturopathic Doctor’s most therapeutic remedy, because it involves putting one’s hands on the patient, and that touch in its purest essence is healing. I was trained in orthopedic assessment of the body, manual soft tissue therapies, and skeletal manipulation, as well as healing touch and chakra balancing. These modalities are effective for helping the physical and energetic bodies to maintain proper alignment and function, to relieve stress and pain, and promote relaxation. This treatment combines head to toe orthopedic assessment with energy work, massage, and skeletal manipulation to support all aspects of body, mind, and soul. drnataliemetz
