Self-Care Practices

The well-established Functional Medicine Center at Groton Wellness know the profound effects that self-care practices can have on health.  As studies have shown, total-body healing requires working with all aspects of a person. Only when someone addresses challenges on the nutritional, physical, cellular, and/or mental levels can a person truly achieve optimal health and well-being.

The practitioners at Groton Wellness recognize the positive effects utilizing the techniques and wisdom from time-honored traditions such as acupuncture, breathing, yoga, and meditation can have on a person. Energy as a vital, living, moving force determines much about health and happiness for each individual.


The body is healed by activating natural healing energies and by restoring energies that have become weak, disturbed or out of balance. Meridians are the ‘energy veins or channels’ that acupuncture professionals treat to bring about a balanced flow of life-force (chi) through the channels.


Acupuncture is able to treat patients with accuracy, achieving impressive results. The flow of the body’s meridians also move through the teeth. It is for this reason that Groton Wellness Biological Dentistry is on the cutting-edge of dentistry by removing root canals that block the flow of chi through the teeth.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is used to balance the body. Herbal Medicine uses the same 5-Element Theory used in acupuncture. Herbal medicine harmonizes imbalances by working through the organs themselves. Revealing an organ’s weakness and where there is a lack of harmony within the body. Creating balance through the use of high quality natural herbs and supplements.
