Alicia Johnson, ND, Acupuncturist

Alicia Johnson is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor. Her areas of expertise include women’s health, infertility, prenatal health, and pediatrics.

Dr. Johnson has a passion for getting to know her patients and working together as a team to address even the most complicated health concerns.

Improving health naturally by addressing the cause of disease rather than simply addressing symptoms, she strives to help people change their lives from the inside out.

Dr. Johnson utilizes natural, non-invasive therapies to treat many common conditions such as menstrual irregularities, menopausal symptoms, abnormal pap smears, depression, weight loss, and anxiety.  In the pediatric population, she uses safe natural treatments to address chronic conditions such as eczema, asthma, allergies, and ear infections.

Dr. Johnson is a graduate from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ.  She received her acupuncture training from the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture.  Prior to medical school, she received her Bachelors of Science in Life Sciences with a secondary degree in Gerontology, the study of aging.  Dr. Johnson’s patients are treated individually with a combination of acupuncture, nutritional supplementation, botanical medicine, dietary counseling, homeopathy, and lifestyle counseling.  This unique, individualized approach is effective for improving the outcome of almost any chronic health condition because many chronic diseases simply do not respond well to simple pharmaceutical treatment.
