Dr. Lara Thompson
Naturopathic Physical Medicine ~ Gentle Adjustments and Body Work
Reiki Master and Systems Constellation Facilitation
I am here because my own medical history is full of stories where I was shuffled through different clinics and doctors' offices being told it's all in your head or take this toxic medication and forget about it. I didn't start to feel well until I found a provider that believed my experience helping me with naturopathic medicine.
My clinical areas of focus has been cases that don't seem to get better with other therapies or providers, If you don't fall into any of the categories listed below - no worries - if you like my approach then chances are there's something I can do to help or if not refer you to someone that I trust.
Some of the many concerns that I have helped patients improve:
chronic pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, TMJ, CRPS, vertigo, dizziness
chronic fatigue, frequent colds and infections
urinary and sexual health concerns - erectile dysfunction, vaginal dryness and pain with sex
allergies, sinus and ear infections
PCOS, PMS/PMDD, hot flashes, mood swings
car accidents, concussions, and traumatic brain injuries
stress, trouble sleeping, anxiety, depression, PTSD, relationship issues, grief and loss, addiction, and overall mental health
nausea, reflux, constipation, diarrhea, Crohns, colitis, IBS, gallbladder issues
chemical and environmental sensitivities
kids or adults that fall into the empathic or highly sensitive categories often reacting to medications or their environment differently than others
I use many different modalities in my practice including:
counseling, Integrative Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), systems constellation facilitation
homeopathy, flower essences, aroma-point essential oil therapy
high quality supplements and botanical medicine
Naturopathic Physical Medicine/Therapy
including gentle muscle and skeletal adjustments, cranio-sacral therapy, reiki, hydrotherapy, neural and visceral manipulation, and polyvagal therapies
I am a white-bodied ally and an LGBTQIA* health care provider - this is a judgement and discrimination free space. I welcome all people and conditions - all bodies, all identities, all ages. The only thing that I ask of patients is that they are willing to work together with an open mind and heart.
As a highly sensitive and intuitive person with my own history of complex health issues and trauma, I have the extra sensory perception as well as experience of life's ups and downs to best hold space for people as a fellow human being - not talking down to you but simply supporting you.
The care that I offer is focused on gentle, non-invasive support of the body's natural processes and in line with the patient's needs. Whether that comes in the form of a trauma free exam or pap smear, sports physical, nutritional consult or hiatal hernia or neck adjustment - no matter what we discuss or do in the visit my goal is to do the best that I can to help guide you through whatever it is that you bring through the door.
Outside of the clinic you'll may find me with my rescue dogs, listening to a true crime podcast, re-reading The Alchemist, or breaking a sweat with kettlebell kundalini.
