how we practice

An integrative approach to healing, wellness and vibrant living.

Our Integrative practice is for those interested in a more holistic approach to health. We help those who’ve tried lots of different things and haven’t found a solution for their unique situation, are frustrated with the care they receive at regular offices, can’t seem to feel like they want to feel, and/or want to live life more naturally and with less medications.

We combine the very best of modern, conventional medicine with the very best of natural and alternative medicine. We utilize functional medicine, herbal medicine, supplements, and hands-on techniques and also use modern testing and medications, as appropriate. We find the best solution for each individual patient.

Your first appointment at FLOURISH will be spacious, not a rushed experience — and include a detailed health history, where you’ll discuss with our Nurse Practitioner what symptoms you’ve been having, what you’ve been experiencing, and your intentions for how you wish things were. We’ll look at each aspect of your life: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, social, and even financial.

We’ll talk through your wellness goals and intentions, and work together to develop a customized plan to fit your individual circumstances. If our practice is the right option for you, we will get started right away in creating the new way of feeling that you’ve been searching for.

“Integrative Medicine means finding the best solution for each individual every time, with no cookie-cutter or band-aid solutions.”~Jen Owen, N.P.

Your particular plan might include discussing whole food eating, and guidance for meal and snack planning. We take the harsh judgement out of the discussion that can happen around food choices — and support our clients in reconnecting with their food in a positive way. 

We may also suggest body movement and fitness activities to help you develop a plan and routine for moving your body in a way that feels good to you, and fits with your schedule and lifestyle. 

We’ll utilize mindset coaching, where you can talk through the beliefs you hold about you and your life — and how those beliefs positively support or negatively impact you living your life in the way you most desire. 

For those with female anatomy, we may also suggest Holistic Pelvic Care™ to explore how this powerful therapy can help build strength in your pelvic floor and access the strength already present in your power center. 

These are just a few examples of the types of support our practice can provide for you.

In utilizing Integrative Medicine for your physical health, we offer specialty testing options to help get to the root of any symptoms:

  • Detailed cardiovascular testing, including extensive cholesterol panels, inflammatory markers, levels of good and bad fats in the bloodstream.
  • Comprehensive blood sugar panels for early detection of imbalances or full panels for diagnosing the cause of blood sugar elevations. 
  • Thorough hormone panels to determine female hormone, thyroid, and adrenal imbalances and to determine any need for bio-identical hormone replacement or thyroid and adrenal support.
  • Complete stool analysis to ascertain the root cause of gut issues, which can also cause symptoms with skin, mood, and more. Stool analysis helps us understand your gut’s bacteria balance, how well you digest your foods, if you have any pathogens, and inflammation.
