Dr. Sage Wheeler, ND
Medical Director and General Practitioner
"I believe that it can be very intimidating to have a doctor show you your true health potential and realize just how far you have to go to get there. Often we don't realize how unhealthy we are until we are in a truly desperate state. However, I believe we all have the capacity for exceptional health, no matter how far we have fallen. I love to take my patients by the hand and help them start the journey, one step at a time." Read more...
Dr. Maiko Ochi, ND, LAc
Women's Health and Acupuncture
“I strongly believe that each patient is an individual and as such, requires treatments customized for them. Especially in the management of chronic disease, which is where naturopathic medicine shines, it’s not about giving one magic pill or supplement that will resolve symptoms. Successful management depends a great deal on recognizing what dietary and behavioral therapies and lifestyle modifications the patient is willing to try in order to achieve overall health. I work with people to not only identify what is causing their symptoms, but more importantly, to explore what treatments they want to try and to identify what roadblocks are preventing them from achieving wellness.” Read more...

Lily Lin, LAc
My name is Lily Lin and I am a nationally certified (NCCAOM), Washington state licensed Acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist. Over a decade ago I was a chemical engineer with an analytical mind contributing to a field that I soon realized I had no passion in. This led to a two month sabbatical through India to study yoga with my 88 year old guru. I began taking lessons in Ayurvedic medicine and was introduced to concepts such as food as medicine and constitutional differences which may predispose certain people to different ailments. This struck a chord with me as I had never approached health in these terms or thought much about the people’s differences even though I experienced poor digestion my whole life...
