Practitioner here sold me a supplement for inflammation that was contraindicated by my other medical conditions and actually sent my liver panel out of whack. Seems like no practitioners here are actually capable of understanding medical records, despite demanding them before treatment, or keeping up on the scientific research around supplements. Avoid avoid avoid. Plus the owner is anti vaccine 😬 ETA: I'm disturbed that the owner finds it acceptable to post my information on the Internet like my address. I pray that others who have negative experiences with this business aren't similarly bullied. ETA2: I've also come to discover that their EMR system isn't secure. Yikes. I've also been Facebook stalked by an employee accusing me of malice. Beware!

I've been going to this clinic for almost 15 years, followed them wherever they set up shop. Even since moving from Philly to San Diego, I make it a point to stop in and get a tune-up whenever I'm visiting home. I swear it seems like I've had a 7 year nap whenever I leave. In the past, after working with Lauren using acupuncture and herbal formulas, I've seen my iron labs shift positively away from anemic levels as well as almost vanished extremely painful and irregular periods. Their apothecary also keeps me stocked up for seasonal cold/flu and allergy issues. Grateful for their integrative and attuned approach. The space feels very safe and welcoming.

This is a beautiful space centered around affordable wellness in the heart of Philadelphia. Rachel's yoga classes are one of a kind! Centered around the meditation and linked with mindful, breath-centered movement, you will feel transformed after every class.
