This evolved medical practice effectively identifies and corrects the root causes of chronic diseases, aiming for comprehensive well-being – physical, emotional, and spiritual. We treat the whole person, not just symptoms, tailoring care plans to each unique individual.
Our method, honed over 25 years, is distinct to our practice. We build relationships with our patients, asking insightful questions to unearth the underlying causes of diseases and disorders.

Functional medicine at THWC goes beyond temporary symptom relief, offering a pathway to lifelong wellness. It’s a patient-centered approach, considering the interplay of environment, genetics, physiology, and mental health. Our patients often share their experiences of fragmented care elsewhere, in contrast to our holistic view that recognizes the body’s interconnected nature.

IV Therapy may be beneficial to patients dealing with a wide variety of health issues including fitness recovery, cold and flu symptoms, stress, migraines and headaches, malabsorption and GI health issues, immune support, acute and chronic pain, and chronic fatigue.
What to Expect
IV therapy is extremely safe! A small needle is placed in a vein on your arm. There is very little pain involved with the therapy. Once IV therapy is started you will be relaxing in a very comfortable recliner chair with soothing music in the background.

Acupuncture is used to correct imbalances in the flow of energy, also known as our chi or qi. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it’s believed that our chi flows through pathways in our bodies called meridians, which correlate to both nerve stimulation and various ailments. This is done by inserting fine, sterile needles into your skin, effectively stimulating specific anatomic sites, more commonly known as acupoints.
Acupuncture promotes your body’s natural self-healing process to relieve pain, and improve sleep, digestion, and emotional well-being.
What to Expect
Our acupuncturist will make sure you are relaxed and comfortable before beginning the procedure. He will then insert fine needles into your skin in order to stimulate specific pressure points or acupoints. The number of needles you get, the placement of these needles, and how deeply they are inserted into your skin varies depending on your specific needs. Your initial appointment will be 90 minutes. Each subsequent appointment will be scheduled as necessary and will be one hour long.

LDA/LDI therapy enables your body to build a tolerance to many common allergies, such as food, pollen, mold, animals, dust, chemicals, etc., and, in turn, leads to increased immune function. This is done by injecting very low doses of a broad spectrum of allergens into your body to stimulate the production of t-cells.
LDA/LDI prevents the spreading or worsening of allergies over time, which is unfortunately very common when allergies are not treated specifically or are treated using only medication.
What to Expect
When scheduling an appointment for LDI or LDA, you will first see on of the providers in our office for an exam and to go over your comprehensive health history.

Peptides are used as signaling molecules in the body, allowing the cells to communicate with each other. This allows the body to switch certain cell functions on or off.
Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep within your body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Using a soft touch, generally no greater than five grams, practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround your central nervous system. CST is very commonly used on infants as well to address a variety of conditions they may have been born with.
CST can benefit patients suffering from a variety of conditions, including ADHD and autism spectrum disorder, concussions and traumatic brain injuries, infant colic, latching challenges, torticollis, headaches, seizure disorders, generalized pain disorders, and more.
What to Expect
For infants, a cranial sacral therapist will have the mother lay down with the baby. The mother may also be asked to breast feed the infant during the therapy in order to keep the baby calm and relaxed throughout the procedure. During each session, your therapist will assess areas of fascial and muscular restriction. They will then proceed with the therapy starting at either your head or feet, applying very light pressure where they feel will be most beneficial to you based on your individual needs. Sessions are typically one hour long. Followups will be scheduled, usually once or twice a week, according to your therapist’s recommendations.
The PEMF technology uses low frequency energy fields that are being pulsed as you utilize the mat.
What is PEMF Therapy?
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. There are several methods by which PEMF therapy can be administered, in our office, we use a full-body therapeutic mat. These mats emit electromagnetic waves at very low frequencies to recharge unhealthy cells and restore the body’s natural self-healing process. The frequencies are similar to that of the electromagnetic waves found in nature. They are not nearly as high as those produced by microwaves, X-ray machines, etc. which can be harmful to the body.
How does PEMF Therapy work?
The cells in your body carry positive and negative charges. These charges allow for the exchange of potassium, sodium, and calcium ions, which your body needs to function properly. Over time, or with injury, your cells can get damaged and no longer carry these magnetic charges. This does not allow for the necessary exchange of ions in the body. PEMF mats emit electromagnetic waves to target your damaged cells and restore healthy charges to them. Different levels of frequencies target different tissues and cells in your body. Our bodies need to be exposed to low-frequency waves in order for our cells to keep their positive and negative charges. This can help decrease inflammation, increase circulation, reduce the effects of stress, accelerate bone healing, and more.
“The trillions of cells of your body maintain stored energy, or voltage, that represents the ability to execute the functions that keep you alive. When cells lose voltage due to environmental stressors, lack of exercise, injury, or inadequate nutrition it creates an environment for the onset of dysfunction that can lead to illness and chronic pain. Drafting on the mid-20th century laboratory work of Harold Saxton Burr at Yale that identified the link between measurable imbalances in the electrical field of an organ and the onset of illness, Dr. Jerry Tennant states in Healing is Voltage that cells, like batteries, are designed to run at -20 to -25 mV. When voltage levels drop cells struggle to function creating an environment for chronic pain and disease. The rapidly changing field of a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) has been observed to induce an electric current in the tissue, producing stimulation of charged particles in support of optimizing the voltage necessary to maintain energy for normal cellular function.”
What can PEMF/PULSE Therapy be used for?
The brain needs more than just rest. It needs active nutrients and reduction of inflammation as well as supportive blood flow and oxygen to increase the healing time and the probability of a full recovery.
We use diagnostic blood tests to test for a wide variety of illnesses and dysfunctions that traditional medical practices do not look for. Our in-house phlebotomists have 20+ years of experience. We typically draw labs following your initial appointment in office.
What to Expect
