Practice Philosophy:  As a naturopathic physician, I strive to bring balance to the body so that it can heal itself in the most effective way.

Ron Murray MRT integrative health Specialty: Manual Regulation Therapy (MRT), a form of physiotherapy combining mind-body therapy, biological medicine and energy medicine. 

Practice Philosophy: Based on years of practice, I have seen that light touch manual therapy positively influences the function of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). I believe that the state of the extra cellular fluid, controlled by the ANS, and not the individual cell, is the key to health. I believe that the human body has a natural inclination to find its way home, to restore an equilibrium that constitutes health.  Through MRT I hope to promote, enhance, and assist the wisdom of the body toward natural healing.

Areas of Focus: Manual Regulation Therapy (MRT), Physiotherapy, CranioSacral Therapy and Heart Rate Variability, for a wide range of health issues including asthma, concussion and other TBI, chronic pain and more.

Dr_Tapscott_functional_medicine_doctor Washington DC

Specialty: Functional Medicine, Adult Holistic Primary Care and Obesity Medicine. Board Certified in Internal Medicine 

Practice Philosophy: “Find the root cause... It’s not enough to diagnose a disease or to treat a symptom without delving deeper and appreciating the processes that underlie the condition. With any ailment, I always ask myself the question - why? My patients’ “true health” is much more than “your labs are within normal limits”.  Testing beyond the conventional labs helps to address nutritional, metabolic, genetic, and hormonal optimization. Everyone has a life story that influences their health. Through personalized treatment in partnership with the patient, we get to the root cause and begin the journey towards long term health and wellness.”
