Part of Dr. Hallmark's philosophy is that true health & wellness are found
when we achieve balance - and that mindfulness & body awareness
are key to finding our center point.
Balance is not a static condition,
but a dynamic state of being that
must be constantly supported
through nourishing practices
for our bodies and minds.
Dr. Hallmark strongly believes in the importance of spending time getting to know her patients and LISTENING... to create the foundation of a partnership with a common goal of well-being.
Dr. Hallmark also believes that good healthcare requires a team approach - and has a longstanding vision to
create a community resource for
people to access skilled practitioners
of various healing arts.
Unfortunately, this has been a difficult aim, particularly in the pandemic...
An approach to health and wellness that takes a holistic view of the patient (not only as a physical body, but considering the mental, emotional, social, spiritual, and environmental factors at play), and individualizes care to address the unique aspects of each person's situation.
