We are dedicated to providing the care necessary to support your body’s own self-healing abilities by offering you the tools you need to repair and take care of yourself most optimally.
You can count on the following from us during your healing journey:
We are always honest and straightforward about what we are and are not able to treat. We are also very transparent about how your personal diet and lifestyle choices may impact your healing journey. This is a partnership. We will show up and do our part to assess and recommend and treat, but active participation on your end will yield greater, faster results. Be open to change and remember that your symptoms probably did not show up overnight so they likely will not disappear overnight either.
We recognize the importance of collaborative care in managing complex issues and are always happy to work with patients’ other providers to co-create a master treatment plan. With more than 22 years of clinical experience working alongside doctors in many specialties including gastroenterology, rheumatology, infectious disease, and pulmonology, Dr. Iona is both honored and well-equipped to become part of your team.
Individualized, Holistic Care
Our intention is to address your symptoms from their root cause as much as possible. Regardless of how many others have suffered similarly or received the same diagnosis as you, you are a unique individual. Therefore, your imbalances are unique to you, and so too should your treatment plan be. We do not treat symptoms or a diagnosis. Instead, we look at everything that surrounds your condition including emotional and spiritual factors–they are as much a part of the healing process as physical considerations. No two fertility issues, IBS cases, or anxiety profiles are the same. Chinese medicine’s ability to identify the nuances and treat them accordingly is what makes it so powerful.
“I originally came to Michelle with stomach issues and anxiety. My job as a private yoga instructor requires that I physically and mentally be on my game. Not only did Michelle help me reset my gut it feels like we literally reset my nervous system! She is a vital part of my wellness routine and I know I perform better in my life and work when I am going regularly. I highly recommend her for both acute issues and ongoing support.”Mary S.
“I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Iona! My only regret was waiting so long to seek her help. Repeated visits with other doctors and multiple tests at great cost yielded ZERO results. I thought I knew a lot about staying healthy but was instead causing myself debilitating pain and inflammation. Dr. Iona’s knowledge of the body & nutrition has been absolutely life changing for me. I owe her a huge debt of gratitude for bringing me back to good health!”Liz O.
“I suffered from sciatica and low back pain for almost 6 weeks before deciding to try acupuncture. I was recommended to her by someone at the gym. My only regret is not choosing to go sooner. She is amazing, knowledgeable, intuitive, and compassionate. What more…. she listens…she took the time to hear my story and go over my history. Her recommendations were on target and I was able to go from a pain scale of 10+ to 2 within 3 visits…. Don’t make the same mistake I made…. Don’t wait…. she’s beyond the best!!!! Thank you, Michelle”SJS
