Dr. Barbara Weiss, BBA, ND
Dr. Barbara Weiss has over nine years of practice as a licensed Naturopathic Doctor and twelve years as a Certified Bowen Therapist. Barbara’s approach is individualized to the patient and utilizes a functional medicine approach, meaning she looks for underlying causes of illness using a systems oriented approach.

Physical examinations and laboratory testing are a regular part of the diagnostic tools used to assess function. She uses a variety of therapies such as dietary recommendations, nutrients, herbal medicine, lifestyle changes, acupuncture, homeopathy and Bowen therapy to restore function. Barbara has completed additional certificate training in Environmental Medicine with Dr. Walter Crinnion ND, Botanical Medicine, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and Mindfulness Based Meditation.
