I’m trained in a variety of techniques, so I tailor your session to work on your specific goals and needs. I love showing my patients how just a few treatments can make an enormous difference to their health.



Polarity Therapy is an subtle, energy-based therapeutic modality that was discovered by Dr. Randolph Stone, DO, DC, ND in this studies of western esoteric, Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine theories and practices. Polarity is a form of magnetic medicine that balances the body’s energy by helping to unwind the blockages that create mental, emotional and physical symptoms and maladies.  Polarity combines the practice of  therapeutic touch, exercise, nutrition and self-awareness to help you create the best version of yourself.  Try it today!



Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy offers the benefits of acupuncture with the therapeutic value of vitamins, minerals, and homeopathics.  From Vitamin B-12 injections that stimulate metabolism to 50,000 IU Vitamin D that supports a health immune system...from mineral deficiencies to the power of homeopathics that work through the adage of "like cures like", Intramuscular (IM) or Subcunatenous (SQ) injections support local and systemic health and are utilized almost instantaneously.  



I practice both Western and Chinese herbal medicine, and combine these to address the nutritional and functional imbalances that may exist in your physiology.  Chinese herbal medicine therapy is a refined and time-tested approach to address your body's needs so you may feel your best in mind, body and spirit.  Western herbal medicine takes into account the cutting edge advances in botanical research to help supplement deficiencies that contribute to a feeling of lethargy, foggy thinking, low energy, hormonal imbalances and feelings of depression and anxiety.  Learn how to unlock your body's mechanisms for wellness, energy and mental and emotional wellbeing! 

               SHIATSU & TUI NA


Shiatsu, or "Finger Pressure" is a traditional form of Japanese touch therapy.  The practice focuses on specific energy points on the body to support positive energy flow that is based on the meridians of Chinese medicine.  Clients report feelings of profound relaxation, reduced pain, better ROM, and a profound connection to self.  

Tui na, or "Push and Pull", is an ancient form of Chinese medical massage that is much like western medical massage with the added benefit of the application of Chinese medical theory.  Tui na is helpful in musculoskeletal pain and weakness, nerve pain and parethesias, mental-emotional issues, low energy, digestive issues, hormonal issues and headaches.

"I was referred to Dr. Whyrick for chronic neck and shoulder pain. After about nine months I am pain free, and I have taken control of my health in a new way. He helped me understand the interconnected nature of our body, mind, spirit, and emotions. He also recommended herbal remedies that were very helpful. I would highly recommend him."
