Do you believe in Western medicine, but also think Eastern practices have some validity?
Then Columbia’s Nava Health and Vitality Center is the place for you.
“We integrate a full complement of therapies to optimize the wellness of the client,” says medical director Douglas Lord, above.
Whether you’re suffering fatigue, insomnia, pain, anxiety, digestive issues—and the list goes on—Nava doctors work together to create what they call a Custom Vitality Plan tailored to your specific needs and with your whole body in mind.
“If someone comes in with a headache, they don’t walk out with a pill or other narrowed antidote,” explains Ana Goldseker, the director of nutrition.
“We are able to check hormones, posture, muscle tension, and food choices to really find out where the headaches are coming from, rather than just treating the symptoms.” Dr. Mark Sivieri, a medical adviser, explains collaborative services.
“We offer a multitude of therapies, including acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, nutritional counseling, hyperbaric oxygen, as well as intravenous vitamins,” he says. But no matter the treatment, Goldseker assures us that teamwork is the key. “There isn’t a decision made without the input of all practitioners.”
