Dr. Darrow Hand, a naturopathic physician with 20 years of experience, enjoys seeing patients of all ages, from children to the elderly, and often finds effective ways of helping his patients get better. Dr. Hand can provide treatment for a wide range of health problems.

He was inspired by John Sarno MD, who healed people’s chronic back pain without drugs or surgery helping them to live normal lives again, pain-free. Dr. Hand also helps patients with acute and chronic musculoskeletal issues. He can help them recover from car accidents and other injuries and relieve pain naturally. He uses a variety of effective healing techniques, including Bowen Therapy and Craniosacral Therapy. Bowen and Craniosacral are relaxing physical therapies, effective for all ages. They consist of a series of gentle moves on the muscles and tendons, benefit a wide range of conditions including: musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, respiratory and hormonal problems, and can have immediate effects. Also, consider having a session following a dental procedure.

Once while Dr. Hand was hiking, he met a woman having an asthmatic attack. She didn’t have her inhaler and asked for help. He performed the Bowen moves for asthma and she was able to hike out without a problem.
