Our Mission and Core Values
Bridges are symbols of connection, of journeys, of vulnerability. Our clinic is committed to bridging connections: between individuals and their health; between patients and practitioners; between old patterns of imbalance and new patterns of freedom. We’re committed to guiding all of our patients on their journeys, no matter where they are or where they want to go. And we’re committed to the protection of vulnerability, recognizing that crossing a bridge can be frightening and walking alongside our patients as they go through life’s challenges and transitions.
Above all, Bridges is a safe community. No one will ever be turned away for treatment because of ethnicity, orientation, identity, religion, or income level.
We strive to be a meeting place of wisdom, where expert knowledge and grounded intuition blend;
a trusted establishment where teaching and learning never stop;
an example of practicing both medicine and business with integrity and transparency.
Private 90 minutes
In this session, we’ll talk about your story: why you’re here, your health history, a full overview of symptoms and events that brought you to here and now. We’ll also identify and set your goals for working together. Then you’ll experience a full acupuncture treatment, including any necessary modalities falling under the Oriental Medicine scope of practice. Afterward, we’ll discuss your options and plans for moving forward.
Private 1 hour
Private acupuncture and herbal medicine assessment and treatment after you've had an initial consultation. Includes any necessary treatment modalities; herbal formulas cost extra. If you prefer an herbal assessment and treatment only, contact us and we can accommodate..
To help with your commitment to your recovery, we offer several pre-pay membership programs, which will be recommended to you based on your needs.

You choose the duration
This is a group setting clinic to experience acupuncture only. Initial intake and communication may be minimal, but your care is taken into the same consideration as private treatments. Laura still listens to your Qi (energy), even if she can’t listen to your words. Sessions can last as little as 30 minutes or as long as you want, so long as another patient doesn’t need your seat.
Just as with private sessions, if you are committed to your recovery and general wellness, the Balance Program is a great option: Pre-pay for five sessions anywhere on the sliding scale rate ($75-200) and get one free Zen Room session (a $25 value) and 10% off of all herbal wellness formulas.
$25 and $45

This is an effective, comprehensive, and customized natural method for empowering both conception and weight loss. Though these seem like entirely separate issues, both rely on the smooth inner workings of the center of our beings; we must be able to digest both our food and our experiences to properly integrate and create a strong foundation for both ourselves and those to whom we want to pass on life.
