At Points of Healing, our vision is to create a therapeutic environment where our patients feel comfortable and encouraged to participate in their own healing process. Because each patient is unique, our practitioners provide individually-tailored treatments based on the patient’s current presentation of signs and symptoms, medical history, and environmental interactions. Our treatments utilize a variety of different modalities to help patients achieve their therapeutic goals. Our mission is to bring the patient back to a state of balance and well-being, and most importantly, improve quality of life.
