Native Mountain Medicine is here to help our patients return to their optimal wellness, just as nature intended. 

Bodies want to be well - it's their nature. Chinese Medicine works with your body's innate desire to be whole; supporting, nourishing and invigorating according to your needs. At Native Mountain Medicine, we envision the path to wellness less in terms of the diseases we can treat, and more in how we can support your body's ability to heal and thrive.
