Promoting a balanced lifestyle
We boast extremely high quality of care and offer family medicine in Seattle strongly based on the tenets of naturopathic medicine. Our doctors treat the whole person instead of just their symptoms. Our approach to health is with nutrition and exercise counseling, stress management, and preventive measures based on one's personal constitution.
Positive Touch Medicine offers unique one-on-one visits with our providers. Most visits will include one full hour of face-to-face time with your doctor. We believe that open and nonjudgmental communication with your doctor is a necessity in fostering a calm environment to facilitate healing. Each doctor here also abides by the naturopathic tenet of the doctor as teacher.
We care about your well being and will provide you with guidance, knowledge, and tools needed to be healthy. We are here to help you achieve optimal wellness.
Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care profession that combines the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Naturopathic doctors are trained as primary care providers who diagnose, treat and manage patients with acute and chronic conditions, while addressing disease and dysfunction at the level of body, mind, and spirit.
We concentrate on whole patient wellness through health promotion and disease prevention, attempting to find the underlying cause of the patient’s condition. Naturopathic physicians care for patients of all ages and genders. They provide individualized evidence-informed therapies and integrative medicine that balance the least harmful and most effective approaches to help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health.
Ayurvedic medicine (also called Ayurveda) is one of the world’s oldest medical systems. It originated in India more than 3,000 years ago. Its concepts about health and disease promote the use of herbal compounds, special diets, and other unique health practices. Key concepts of Ayurvedic medicine include universal interconnectedness - among people, their health, and the universe - the body’s constitution (prakriti), and life forces (dosha). Using these concepts, Ayurvedic physicians prescribe individualized treatments, including compounds of herbs or proprietary ingredients, and diet, exercise, and lifestyle recommendations.
We believe that healing happens not only from the inside out but also from the outside in. Because of that belief, we offer supplemental physical medicine treatments, including Bowenwork, LIFT, Craniosacral Therapy and Reiki. We believe in non-invasive, gentle physical medicine-- a positive touch.
Other complimentary therapies include: Therapeutic ultrasound, hydrotherapy (contrast and constitutional), IV therapy, homeopathy and nebulizer therapy for upper respiratory conditions. We offer nutritional, botanical and supplement based therapies. As needed, we provide both specialized and conventional testing.
