Pure Roots Health

The Inspiration

There is a magnificent and powerful source of energy within all life. The human body has the capacity heal itself once balance is restored, and alignment with this source energy is remembered on a consistent basis. Pure Roots Health is here to help you restore and realign. Each person is treated as a whole, and the root cause of disharmony is the target.

Every human has a process to go through as life unfolds. This process can include physical, emotional, or spiritual challenges, health issues, or traumas, and then also the growth and evolution that occurs through these challenges. The therapies used here, increase the innate healing wisdom, so get through challenge and to the other side. When our Roots are nourished, Wellbeing flows and we can live in peace and harmony with ourselves and with life in general.

Naturopathic modalities are combined with Psychosomatic Energetic Therapy, and Mind-Body techniques. We aim to integrate past conditioning or trauma, so that health can be created from a conscious place. The past does not have to dictate the quality of our present or future moments. Sessions with Dr. Jann create possibility for liberation from dis-ease or obstacles, so that the body/mind/spirit can shine in its purest most radiant form!
