KELLY MOYAERT, ND, LMP, RYT

Dr. Kelly Moyaert’s practice is at the annex, our secondary location, two buildings south of our main clinic.

Dr. Moyaert is no longer accepting patients for primary care, however she is eager to work with new and established patients experiencing chronic pain and stress related conditions.

Practice

Dr. Moyaert is a naturopathic physician, licensed massage practitioner and certified yoga instructor. She has an integrative, patient-centered, hands-on approach to medicine and wellness, and quite often includes the gentle healing modality of Craniosacral Therapy in her treatment of patients.

Dr. Moyaert’s clinical interests particularly include stress-related concerns and nervous system imbalances that are sustaining a disparity and disturbance of the endocrine, immune and musculoskeletal systems. These complaints may be manifesting as chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, low energy/fatigue, dizziness, muscular tension, fascia restrictions, chronic inflammation, lymphatic stagnation, jaw pain/clenching, TMJ, headaches, chronic sinusitis, digestive disorders, infertility, chronic pelvic pain, endometriosis, chronic interstitial cystitis, hormone imbalances, and issues with thyroid and adrenal function

Dr. Moyaert maintains special interests in lifestyle counseling, nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, botanical medicine, biotherapeutic drainage as well as the integration of women’s health with gentle hands-on healing such as the Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal and Uterine Massage™ and Craniosacral therapy. She strongly supports the restorative capacity of releasing fascia restrictions to facilitate a deeper healing, as well as uses counseling skills and other integrative modalities to identify where patients are “stuck.” She aims to identify and facilitate in the letting go of old patterns that act as obstacles to overall wellness. Currently she has an entire tool box full of hands-on therapeutic modalities that she offers patients to support their healing, balance their nervous system, counteract stress, release fascia and decrease muscular tension and pain. These include manual therapies such as massage cupping, neuromuscular re-education, Trigger Point release therapy, visceral manipulation, Craniosacral Therapy and Mayan Abdominal and Uterine Therapy™. Additionally, she is a certified yoga instructor and where appropriate integrates yoga therapy within a visit, (or if needed/desired, now offers private one-on-one yoga therapy sessions at a "time of service" rate.)

Approach

Dr Moyaert's personal healing philosophy embodies finding balance in life and facilitating healing from within. "Using a naturopathic model my approach to practicing medicine is simply to connect with my patients, to listen and care for them, and to facilitate healing through growth, awareness of self (including mind body and spirit,) and creating a foundation for health and wellness. I am a firm believer in the doctor-patient therapeutic relationship and feel that establishing a genuine connection is a vital part of the synergy allowing healing to occur." She adds, "Essentially, as a physician, I am a source of education and support for my patients and it is my intention to work together to find the balance of what will resonate with each of them as they journey down their path of healing and wellness."
