Unlock your Health Potential
Welcome to Balance Point Natural Medicine. We are Dr. Christine Doherty, Naturopathic Doctor and digestive health specialist and Sean Doherty, licensed Acupuncturist, Chinese Herbalist and Prolotherapy pain management specialist.
We established Balance Point in 1999 as a place where patients receive expert care and treatment based on individual needs. We believe that extraordinary health is possible and you can thrive…naturally.
Digestive Health, Celiac Disease and Food Allergies
Dr. Doherty's approach to Celiac disease, gluten intolerance and food allergies springs from personal experience, professional expertise, compassion and curiosity.
Unlocking the hidden causes of your digestive issues, not just masking the symptoms, is the key to making lasting improvements in your health.
Through a thorough history, possibly some testing, physical exam, and diet review, she looks at the big picture to see the trends in your overall health, looking to help re-establish balance in the whole body.
Dr. Doherty is an innovative thinker who is not constrained by how she thinks things should be. She really listens to people, and frequently meshes parts of what seem like unconnected symptoms together in to a picture that makes sense and leads to a functional treatment direction.
Then she treats the cause.
Expertly. Efficiently. Naturally.
Pain Management, Prolotherapy, Sports Medicine
On top of his decade and a half of work with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, Sean Doherty, is a pioneer in the use of highly advanced techniques, such as acupoint injection therapy, and prolotherapy for the treatment of chronic joint pain, neck and back pain, migraines, arthritis and strains to ligaments and tendons.
As a multi-sport athlete himself, he is inspired by experiences coping with the rigors of sports and in finding treatments that enhance performance and decrease pain. He is the only practitioner in New England to have completed a board specialty in acupuncture orthopedics.
Sean is not limited to just acupuncture or injection therapies. He uses many different modalities, including therapeutic ultrasound, moxibustion, far infrared, Tui Na massage, and cupping to name a few.
