Dr. Ashley Nelson, ND

My mood, hormone, and wellness journey has been going on for many years. Having suffered for years as a teenager I was determined to ensure that one day, I could help people who were feeling stuck and unwell physically and mentally like I was. Little did I know at the time, but Naturopathic Medicine would become the answer to many of my own struggles, and also allow me to pursue my mission to help other people.

My passion is to help women become healthier and feel better about themselves inside and out. There is no foundation or filter you can use to “fake” your health. To look and feel your best, you need to address the whole person (and this no temporary feat). Self-care becomes a lifestyle and my job is to teach you how to find this balance for yourself in a way that works for you.

At Rooted in Health, I will be focusing on acupuncture and cupping treatments for fertility and pregnancy, however other common reasons to book an acupuncture visit with me include: injuries, sore muscles, headaches, chronic pain, anxiety/depression, stress, digestive complaints, insomnia, and so on. If you’re unsure whether acupuncture can help, feel free to book a complimentary consultation to learn more about this wonderful system of medicine.
