WELCOME TO CLEAR PATH
The mission of Clear Path is to support as many people as possible on their wellness journey with natural medicine. Through education, empowerment, and clinical expertise, we will help you reach your goals and clear the path for you to realize the most optimal life.
All Natural Approach
We uncover and treat the root cause of your pain or other health concerns. This is why so many have found relief with our therapies, even after trying other treatments that have not delivered lasting relief. Even those with a complicated or family history of health issues have been able to achieve health and do the things that they love.
We use an all natural approach your doctor may not know about.
Your doctor may have told you that you have to live with your condition and symptoms or “that pharmaceutical medications are the only treatment for your condition”. That doesn’t mean there’s no effective natural treatment solution, it just means your doctor has run out of ideas for you or there aren’t conventional western medical treatments that can help you. We find that people who don’t respond well to conventional treatment often respond very well to a natural approach.
We focus on optimizing and modulating your body's natural healing abilities.
Despite what you may have been led to believe, your body is not “broken”. It IS possible to live fully with energy, focus, and joy again. Your body never forgets how to heal. It just needs the right support. Your body makes its own internal anti-inflammatory substances and medicines, and our therapies help it do just that.
We keep it simple and results are quick
Feeling better and boosting your body’s ability to heal does not have to be difficult or take a long time. Simple, targeted lifestyle and diet changes, along with our targeted natural therapies are a very clear and concise way to face the problem head on. And, patients often see improvement within DAYS, not weeks or months. In many cases, noticeable lasting improvements occur in as little as 7-10 days.
Patient Centered Care
We focus on how you FEEL - not just the numbers. While it's common to base improvement on numbers and figures and standards within the health professions – We focus on what YOU say, your story, and how you feel as well.
Are you feeling a reduction in the intensity and frequency of your symptoms? Are you able to recover from physical activity faster than before, have more energy, or sleeping better? Are you starting to feel motivated to do the things you love again instead of staying home? That is our focus and dedication, not more expensive, unnecessary lab tests.
Our approach ALWAYS includes stress reduction
Stress is often a key component in immune system regulation, pain and cellular regeneration. We do not ignore this, we actually teach you very simple ways to enhance sleep and relaxation which boosts your body’s natural healing functions, allowing you to be at peace.
COMPASSION | DEDICATION | INTEGRITY
Our approach to care is patient-centered, rooted in principles of natural medicine and informed by the most recent developments in biomedical science. Our natural therapies aid in reestablishing a healthy physiological baseline and awaken your body’s innate healing potential.

Anyone can benefit

We help our patients know how to engage the healing process in the best possible way, and how to sustain the benefits of treatment to achieve and maintain true health as fast as possible.
Your body wants to heal
Sometimes, the body needs some specific support to get back on the path of health. That is our job. We help you with therapeutic strategies for your unique condition so that you can be living your life again as soon as possible.
Natural medicine has existed for as long as humans have been around. We specialize in the most comprehensive natural medicine system on the planet. Traditional Chinese Medicine is thousands of years old, a focal point of much research, and gaining in popularity worldwide at an astounding rate.
Mind-Body-Spirit relationship is key
A balanced relationship between physiological, psychological and spiritual aspects of life are keys to true health. When the whole person is doing well, each one of these ‘pillars’ is healthy and in conjunction with the others forms the foundation of well-being and fulfillment.

“My experience with Quinn has been unbelievable. I came into his office after taking ibuprofen everyday for over a month due to a bad TMJD flareup. After just my second appointment I was starting to feel my jaw pain fade, and after my fourth appointment I no longer needed to take ibuprofen daily. Not only did it help with my pain–it helped my anxiety, which was definitely contributing to the jaw pain I felt. Quinn helped me to bring mindfulness and meditation into my acupuncture sessions, which gave me a deep sense of healing that trickled into every aspect of my life. I highly recommend Quinn and Clear Path to anyone wishing to heal their body or spirit.”
