Roots to Health
Naturopathic & Shiatsu Clinic

Roots to Health Naturopathic & Shiatsu Clinic was established in 2001 when Jason and Carol took over a building that had been abandoned years earlier.  The turn of the century home needed a great deal of renovations much of which they did themselves with the help of family.  Some people know the building as Dr. Spears old office and others remember it from when the Drs. Hope had their office here.  You can park on the left side (if you are facing the building) and enter through the clinic entrance.  Due to COVID measures, please only visit if you have a booked appointment.
