Naturopathic Physician

 

As a family physician, I empower my patients and help them navigate their health through all stages of life.  I collaborate with other pediatricians, mental health workers and medical specialists to provide truly holistic medicine. I offer my patients a customized, guided health care system that other doctors do not; a system that includes nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, craniosacral, IV therapy, labs and imaging plus pharmaceutical medications. I am trained and certified in treatment of Mold Toxin Illness and also work with complex chronic illness. We will work as a team to achieve and maintain your health goals because I am your partner in sickness and in health.

Tomi Knutson, LMT

Craniosacral Therapist

 

Hello, my name is Tomi Knutson and I'm an LMT specializing in Craniosacral Therapy for all ages, Manual Lymph Drainage and Family Constellation Work.

I fell in love with Big Island during a sabbatical from my Oakland practice back in 2013.  Last year, I decided to follow my heart and moved to Kona. I am excited and honored to join the talented practitioners of the Koa Clinic and look forward to offering my skills and experience. 

Over the last 20 years of working with others both as a Craniosacral Therapist and formerly as a Birth and Postpartum Doula, one thing is clear - we each carry within our bodies, minds and hearts all we need to heal and grow into the magical beings we are meant to be.  All that's needed is the patience to listen and the willingness to Touch In and collaborate with what our innate wisdom is sharing with us. We each have our own healing journey to follow, and I would be honored to accompany you on yours.
