Celebrate Our Roots With Us!
National Naturopathic Medicine Week
October 8th - 14th
Did you know that Naturopathic Medicine is not new?
Many people ask me: “Isn’t Naturopathic medicine a brand-new field in this country?”
In fact, Naturopathic medicine has been around for more than 150 years, and its origins in the United States date back to the late 19th and early 20th century. Dr. Benedict Lust, a German immigrant, popularized Naturopathy in the United States based upon the water cure techniques he was taught in Europe after he was cured of a childhood illness. He combined these techniques with materials learned in his study of Osteopathy and other holistic healing therapies to form Naturopathic Medicine.
This was a novel system of healing based around techniques to heal the body naturally, using herbs, hot and cold baths, and physical medicine.
I view Naturopathic Medicine week as emblematic of the growth in awareness of the Naturopathic profession. While this profession is not new, it has grown in popularity as more Americans realize the importance of the services Naturopathic Physicians can provide.
Over the past 6 years, North Dakota, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania have all gained licensure. This expansion reflects the growing desire for access to well-trained holistic physicians.
I am proud to celebrate this week, and invite you to join us at Full Circle Care to celebrate at any of our events. I’d also encourage you to take 30 minutes to an hour this week to care for yourself and imagine what wellness feels like to you. Once you’ve finished that, go out and make it happen! And as always, we’re here to help if you need us!
- Dr. Daniel Reed, N.D.

An Introduction To Qi Gong
Join Dr Daniel Reed, N.D. as he introduces you to the restorative healing movements of Qi Gong. Qi Gong (pronounced “Chee Gong”) literally means "energy work," and is a form of exercise that is akin to a moving meditation. This activity involves gentle movements and balance exercises done in tune with breathing which help control the movement of energy and life force internally and externally. The practice has numerous benefits including: relaxation and stress relief, improvement of fatigue, improving balance, and learning to breathe deeply from the diaphragm.

Stress- Relieving Foam Rolling Workshop
In desperate need of a release? Foam rolling isn't just for athletes. If you sit for extended periods of time during the day, you might be developing knots in your muscles that stay contracted all day. These knots (or adhesions) limit the range of motion of your joints and muscles, which also decreases circulation. Foam rolling puts pressure on these knots and aids in releasing the myofascial layer. With the aid of SMR, the tension can finally dissipate- allowing your muscles to return to an optimal lengthened state.
5:15 PM - 6:00 PM
