The Marlborough Wellness Center became a reality in October
2005 on Route 20 in Marlborough, Massachusetts. It is here where modern
and traditional medicine become integrated. Where the practitioners are
knowledgeable about the Western medical system and yet have found success
with alternative medical approaches to health and vitality. We work hand-in-hand
with you to ensure complete and open communication occurs between all your
medical health practitioners. Each one of us is eager to help you live a
more healthy life, full of energy and fulfillment.
