Naturopaths are unique in the range of tools in their therapeutic toolbox. In addition to being educated in the medical sciences, the modalities they are trained in throughout their 4 years of post-secondary medical school include:
- Traditional Chinese Medicine + acupuncture
- Botanical Medicine
- Physical medicine + manual therapy
A combination of these may be used in the treatment of your particular symptoms and concerns. Each patient is assessed and treated as an individual; what may work to treat a particular condition in one person, may not be the appropriate approach for the next. This unique approach is one of the great benefits of working with a naturopathic doctor!
