Where to Start…

Web MasterServices

Welcome to the Tummy Temple! We work as an Integrated Care Team and offer the services we do because we have found that they support the body’s natural processes of detoxification, digestion, stress relief, relaxation and vitality.

Our recommendations below offer guidance in choosing the best place for you to start. By the end of your first session, your physician or therapist can guide to your best next steps to enjoyably and effectively meet your goals!

PLEASE NOTE: Some therapies require time to yield desired results, and positive therapeutic results often plateau over time. If you are not getting the results you’re seeking, please communicate openly with your therapist for guidance regarding your expectations. It may be appropriate to integrate another therapy or supplement to accelerate your journey to the next level of wellness.
