“… Treat the symptoms and you might ease the pain, Treat the cause and you will cure the patient…”
Aram A. Akopyan MSCS, MATCM, LAc. Dipl, OM
Welcome fellow traveler on the path to Total Wellness. I wish to share with you my experiences of the wonders awaiting you on this road. My own journey into the wonderful world of healing began when I was a young child, watching my grandfather practice the ancient art of Armenian Traditional Medicine. I have fond memories of sitting patiently at his side observing him mix and match various herbs to make herbal preparations, or perform seemingly magical rituals. I was fascinated with the process and sure that I would follow in his footsteps to continue his traditions as a healer…

“…It’s not just about putting a bandaid on the symptom…”
Tina T. Torosyan MATCM,
My journey into natural healing came from my own experience with acupuncture. Growing up, I suffered from terrible, mind numbing migraines that were paralyzing. Anyone who suffers from migraines can understand this sort of pain that makes you want to hide away. After taking medication for years and trying different methods, I was finally guided into acupuncture. During the time I was getting treatments, I was also taking my prerequisites to start pharmacy school and as my migraines started to diminish and my energy levels increased, I started to doubt my chosen career path…
“…The natural force within each of us is the greatest healer of disease – Hippocrates…”
Patty Guzman LMT and EHP – A Touch That Heals
Years ago I suffered a neck injury in a car accident. I tried various doctors, medicines and therapies only to become discouraged with Western Medicine. It wasn’t until I actually got referred to The Total Wellness Center that I found relief from my chronic pain. Formerly in the health field, I found myself still wanting to work with people and my hands. But as a caregiver, something was always missing – a mind/body/spirit connection.
