The Miracle of Healing!
How do you heal when the answers aren’t easy?
When the standard treatment does not cure the problem, or when there is no diagnosis, or when nothing seems to help, we must ask ourselves — what else is going on?
Over the past 30 years, I have worked with 1000’s of patients who have had chronic, unexplained, or mystery illnesses. My method combines cutting-edge Western medicine and science with the holistic healing principles of Chinese medicine , and provides a caring, nurturing environment in order to navigate seemingly impossible odds.
Whether you’ve suffered an injury, are coping with a chronic or potentially life-threatening illness, or are struggling to understand your symptoms and find a diagnosis and cure – there is an answer that will work for you.
Together, we can find it!
Knowing that the holistic healing journey is a collaborative one, Dr. Shiroko takes the time to fully understand you so that she can help you achieve the wellness you desire.
