Looking Beyond Symptoms, Restoring Balance

You can live free of pain and chronic illness when you have a doctor who can identify and treat the root causes of your health problems. Since 1997, Dr. Tom Mitchell has done just that, helping thousands of patients reclaim vibrant health using proven healing modalities — without the side effects of prescription medications or risk of surgical intervention.

Dr. Mitchell has training and expertise in several healing modalities, combining the best of Eastern medicine and Western medical assessment. Rather than merely treating symptoms, Dr. Mitchell assesses the functional, nutritional and energetic imbalances underlying your health problems. This evaluation may include an acupuncture meridian assessment, a pulse assessment and a functional blood chemistry analysis, in addition to a thorough physical examination. In this way, he can help you “connect the dots,” so to speak, to determine why you may be experiencing multiple health problems.

By using several forms of assessment and a holistic healing strategy, illness can be detected and addressed at its earliest stages. Dr. Mitchell will approach your health as an interrelated set of issues and offer therapies that create overall balance. In this way, you can experience profound, long-lasting healing and return to your state of vibrant health.

A Three-Pronged Approach

Dr. Mitchell assesses an individual’s health from three interrelated perspectives:

  • Structure and Function
  • Energy
  • Nutrition
Dr. Mitchell’s holistic approach to health and well-being goes beyond treating symptoms, offering patients a breakthrough in healing and increased vitality.
