Our clinic's treatment sessions are significantly more extensive, thorough and much more effective than any other clinic of its kind in the region. Dr. Mick has far more extensive training and experience than simply an acupuncturist since he is both a doctor of acupuncture and Asian medicine as well as a doctor of natural medicine specializing in holistic functional healthcare. Therefore, treatments are based on a comprehensive science-based approach that also includes evidence-based nutritional and botanical medicine. This makes for a very effective and powerful approach to healing the root cause of many health concerns while supporting optimal health and well-being. Dr. Mick encourages preventive healthcare to support healthy aging and a high quality of life in our older years.
