Dr. Nixdorf has witnessed some of the most profound long term health benefits from Biotherapeutic Drainage, which she has studied for over 17 years. Biotherapeutic Drainage is a philosophy and treatment framework that has been used in Europe for over a 100 years. Biotherapeutic Drainage uses a combination of low dose botanical medicines and homeopathic doses of plants, minerals and metals to help your body physiologically release toxins. The goal of treatment with Biotherapeutic drainage is always to get the body to react, self- regulate, and return to normal, healthy physiologic functioning.
Dr Nixdorf has over fourteen years of clinic experience in Naturopathic medicine and Acupuncture. She completed her residency in 2007 and has since worked in group practices, her own private practice and has volunteered with multidisciplinary medical teams locally and internationally.
Dr. Nixdorf's style of acupuncture is gentle and based on classical Chinese medicine theory. Pulse and tongue diagnosis along with an individual's symptoms are used in customizing each acupuncture treatment.
East Meets West
