Middle Way Healing Practitioners

Our practitioners integrate the concept of “The Middle Way” into services that honor the power of the intellectual mind — yet simultaneously awaken ways of knowing that go beyond intellect and information to help you enhance your healing process, peace of mind, and enjoyment of life.
