(SI Newswire) Founded in 2016 by Sarah Larson, ND, Emerge Natural Health Care has provided a natural, holistic alternative to folks in Vancouver. A primary care practice geared toward the most effective medical treatment with the least invasive methods, Dr. Larson's practice has seen constant growth, with thousands of patients treated.

In 2018, Dr. Larson concluded that the only way she could meet Vancouver's growing demand for patient-focused medical treatment was to bring in additional practitioners. Dr. Larson teamed up with Dr. Greg Lamont-Mitchell, an established local Naturopathic Physician, to expand the services offered at Emerge.

Emerge is now announcing the addition of a third Naturopathic Practitioner, Dr. Colleen Fuller, and a Chiropractor - Dr. Ruben Acevedo.

"We’ve worked to create a one-stop-shop where a wide range of patients health care needs are met within a single location;" says Dr. Sarah Larson. "The skills of these two new practitioners enable us to serve a wide range of health concerns across many demographics."

Dr. Colleen Fuller complements her Naturopathy degree with certification in Homeopathy, as well as training in Fertility Awareness Based Methods, Craniosacral therapy, and Pelvic Floor as well as the Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Massage.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to work in a collaborative community of practitioners who have a unified vision of what holistic care means” says Dr. Fuller. “This is a kindhearted team working toward well-rounded integrative care helping patients in their healing journey.”.

Dr. Ruben Acevedo is looking to serving the wellness needs of Vancouver's population. "Vancouver has a unique combination of avid outdoors people and sports enthusiasts on one side, and corporate employees and professionals on the other. These two populations have specialized needs, and I have the skills to serve both groups.”

With a Masters in Sports Medicine complementing his Doctoral Degree, Dr. Acevedo provides relief from back pain, health tips and guidance on better posture to one group, while helping the more athletic folk achieve their maximum potential through the evaluation of biomechanics, exercise guidance and focused massage.”

Patients at Emerge Natural Health Care have noticed the growth. "I usually had to wait two weeks for an appointment, as Dr. Larson and Dr. Lamont-Mitchell are both in high demand," says Alex Burley, a patient. "Thanks to their expansion, both my spouse and I have been able to get appointments much sooner. And when you're in pain, sooner makes a big difference."

Something quite unique offered at Emerge Natural Health Care is the Wednesday Night Community Acupuncture & Chiropractic. Known as the 'Qi Party' (pronounced “chee”), this evening event provides a very affordable way for folks to experience acupuncture, chiropractic and massage for the first time - or simply to have access to these services at reduced cost. In addition, the communal nature of the event allows for serene healing. Tea and soft music help complete the communal healing atmosphere.
