Relaxation begins with your first step into Apothecary Wellness as the earthy tones and healing scents surround you. This serenity is only deepened as you are greeted by the welcoming faces of their reputable staff. One of the newest members to join the team is Dr. Homa Hashime, a naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist.
Naturopathic doctors combine the knowledge of modern science with the wisdom of nature to restore and rejuvenate a person’s vital energy. Naturopathy focusses on a holistic healing approach, says Dr. Hashime. “We heal the whole person, their body, their mind, and their emotions.”
As the only doctor in Federal Hill with her unique skillset, Dr. Hashime brings a variety of specialized services to our community including acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, and cupping. “I have a lot to offer, and I want people to use my services,” she says. Although, some of these techniques may sound unconventional, and even a little scary, they are actually painless and have been used for centuries in Eastern medicine.
“It works… It just works,” says Dr. Hashime, who gets treatment herself once a month. “So why not try it?” Apothecary Wellness even offers group acupuncture sessions at a reduced cost, so you can learn more about the practice with your friends.
So this month be spontaneous, try something new… you deserve it!
