Welcome! Pleasure to connect with you and thank you for visiting my page.
I’m Dr. Dawn and I dedicate my life to my medicine and helping people restore their health … because WELLNESS MATTTERS!
Simply put, that was how my practice was born: ~ Wellness Matters ~
It all matters. Our feelings, physical body, environment, connections with other beings, stress response, childhood, lifestyle choices, exercise routines, meals, beverages, the list goes on and on.
All of these factors affect us for better or worse. Ultimately our wellness is put in a position to thrive or suffer. This is where my services factor in. Wellness Matters offers Naturopathic Medicine, Acupuncture, Reiki, Bio-Energy Healing, and Pet Therapy.
As a Naturopathic Doctor, I get to know my patients. Upon establishing care at Wellness Matters, I conduct a thorough medical intake during the initial appointment which is 90 minutes long. I am able to take the sum of all of the parts of someone’s life into consideration. I ask detailed questions in order to assess the person as a whole. I facilitate a conversation to guide each and every one of my patients back to wellness. I get to know my patients on a personal level and I mix that with my clinical perspective.
Naturopathic Medicine gets to the root cause of someone’s imbalance and restores vitality. That vitality is life and brings one back to optimal health. When it comes to the root cause of feeling unwell, there is no second guessing on how to help patients. The answer is right there.
Wellness Matters has the unique ability to combine western and eastern medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine complements and even amplifies the western medicine philosophies of Naturopathic Medicine. Acupuncture has many modalities beyond needling such as cupping, Gua Sha and acupressure – just to name a few. By doing a tongue and pulse diagnosis, I can identify where the body needs support and create the necessary healing treatment. There is an infrared sauna lamp to provide anti-inflammatory support. Acupuncture works on the parasympathetic nervous system to calm the nerves, eliminate pain, and decrease stress. By working on the meridians within the body, provides the opportunity for the body to heal at the cellular level. The benefits last beyond the office therapy.
Energy healing is another popular therapy offered at Wellness Matters. Humans are energetic beings pulsing through life. By using Reiki and Bio-Energy healing, alignment from within the body is tangible. They are both ancient forms of energy work. There are chakras and chords that create connections within us. Either they are free flowing or blocked. When there is a path for free-flowing energy that allows for growth and optimal health. However, when there is a blockage or a pulling force, it creates a harmful path within the body for stagnation and chronic disease to develop.
Providing a serene environment to encourage stress relief is important. Pet therapy provides that caring touch and is very effective with my pediatric patients. Pet therapy can be arranged so please inquire within when booking your appointment. In addition to in-office and telehealth services, at-home acupuncture and energy healing is also available.
At Wellness Matters, I meet my patients where they are at. I guide them towards health. It is imperative to provide healing at the physical, emotional and spiritual level at the proper time during their healing journey. I am here to help, heal and educate my patients about their own particular health needs.
I look forward to meeting you soon as I am accepting new patients at this time.
