Herbology Herbal medicine, also called botanical medicine or phytomedicine, refers to using a plant's seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, or flowers for medicinal purposes. Herbalism has a long tradition of use outside of conventional medicine. It is becoming more mainstream as improvements in analysis and quality control along with advances in clinical research show the value of herbal medicine in treating and preventing disease. Conditions commonly treated with herbal medicine include:
- Asthma and Chronic Bronchitis
- Arthritis
- Inflammatory skin disorders
- Endocrine (hormonal) disease
- Behavior

Laser Therapy Laser therapy is a USDA approved treatment modality. It utilizes a low-level laser system that applies photons to the skin and deeper tissues. The photons create an anti-inflammatory effect and increase circulation without damaging the tissues. Ultimately this leads to decreased pain and markedly increased healing time when used for injury treatment. Conditions commonly treated with laser therapy include but are not limited to:
- Traumatic injuries of the skin and musculoskeletal system
- Back and joint pain due to arthritis and intervertebral disk disease
- Post-operative treatment of surgical sites
- Inflammatory skin disorders
- Ear Infections
