Nature’s Wisdom Healing Center-Mary Cetan is an alternative medical clinic offering acupuncture in Sarasota, Florida. Along with the ancient practice of acupuncture, treatment techniques include cupping, which increases blood flow and energy to areas of pain and deficiency; moxibustion, which adds a gentle heat to acupuncture points or to body areas again to increase circulation and assist in moving and restoring the energy in the body; needle free acupuncture, where acupuncture points are stimulated without the use of needles by preference or for specific effect; and herbal medicine, both Chinese herbal and Western herbal medicine. True to our philosophy of “Nature First, Drugs Last”, we have hundreds of herbal formulas that we incorporate into our healing plans to help our patients get out of pain and distress and move towards better health and happiness.

At Nature’s Wisdom Healing Center-Mary Cetan, we are also experts in the modern natural care method of Functional Nutrition. With Functional Nutrition, we understand the necessity of nutrients from food to support the body to work properly. We expertly prescribe the nutrient rich supplements from Standard Process, an organic farm in Wisconsin, that has been making nutrient rich whole food supplements for over 90 years.  We use blood chemistry test results and other lab tests as needed as a way to determine specific nutrients and herbal medicine needed to restore function to specific tissues, organs and systems of the body and to help the body to heal itself and prevent future disease patterns.
