The Remix Philosophy

"Music in the soul can be heard by the Universe" — Lao Tzu

The mission of REMIX Acupuncture + Integrative Health is to guide you, the patient, and your body's own powerful healing response by using traditional Chinese medical techniques such as acupuncture and cupping, ancient herbal remedies, and Eastern Nutrition, to transform you on a mind-body-soul level—all naturally.

A REMIX session naturally unblocks and tweaks your essential health to its crispest, sharpest setting—it's an energy exchange, collaboration and duet that's underscored by the belief that all the elements, tools, and notes to healing are already there inside you, and our job is to blend, balance and harmonize them together.

We believe you hold the essence of your healing within you and that a patient's individual health journey can be a rewarding and transformative one that's met with self-discovery and self-evolution.

At REMIX, good health is not just about fixing a medical problem, and shouldn't be scary or isolating for a patient. Our top priority is to meet your health care needs (and even exceed them) in a consistent partnership that's fundamentally powerful to the mind-body-soul.

Whether in a preventative mode, or in regards a specific health issue, we're here (and honored) to hold a space for your healing—and our job is to elevate your quality of life, channel your optimal health and, overall, help create a better you.
