Radiant Heart Center for Wholeness

In service of the whole health of individual, family, and community

We are a 3-fold, holistic healing center where ancient wisdom of classical Chinese medicine, natural science of Naturopathic Medicine, and spiritual science of Anthroposophic Medicine work together. Each maintains its autonomy as a holistic medicine, and all come together in service of individualized healthcare.

A 3-fold social organization is one that holds sacred the natural and spiritual realms of human life.

To uphold this sanctity, a 3-fold division is necessary, yet one that is an organic division, for a 3-fold organization is actually one that matches reality best. We are organically growing into a 3-fold organization and will continue to post on our developments.

A 3-fold medical practice is one that holds sacred the natural and spiritual processes within human existence.

We offer three distinct medical systems and prefer to see our patients together as a team in order to help each other see the whole person. Our goal is to offer complete care to all members of our community.
