Dr. Woomer is a naturopathic physician and licensed acupuncturist. As a child, Dr. Woomer always dreamed of being a doctor, after the death of her grandfather at a young age. She wasn’t sure what type of doctor she wanted to be, but the medical field was very appealing. It wasn’t until she suffered from a chronic illness that she discovered the benefits of nutrition. She attended Millersville University in Pennsylvania, where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry & Biology. After graduation, she sought to explore chiropractic medicine.
Dr. Woomer researched many eastern chiropractic colleges. Her paradigm began to shift once she found the University of Bridgeport’s School of Naturopathic Medicine. Here she found a description of naturopathic medicine and the modalities within the naturopath’s tool chest. While embarking on her journey to study naturopathy, she found acupuncture or perhaps acupuncture found her. The sciences and creative possibilities intrigued Dr. Woomer during her studies of naturopathy and acupuncture. Through both studies, she found a meaningful balance.
Her personal history enables her to understand both perspectives: that being the perspective of the patient and that of the doctor. Based on her past experience, she understands the frustrations of dealing with a chronic illness while desperately going from specialist to specialist seeking answers. Her goal as a physician is to uncover the root cause of illnesses through physical exams, dietary dialogue and up to date lab testing. Treatments include homeopathic remedies, supplements, acupuncture and dietary counseling.
With a practice rooted in supportive and preventive care, Dr Woomer also specializes auto-immune disease, digestive disorders, fertility, and woman’s health.

Jessica Sailer is a licensed Esthetician who specializes in holistic, organic skincare. She has always enjoyed making her own products from random kitchen ingredients to help her skin which paved the way for her to study esthetics and herbology. She has struggled with acne since she was a teen but became worse when she turned 18 and caused her to fall into an unhealthy state of mind. Throughout many trial and errors, she found that healing skin disorders came from an internal standpoint rather than external. She believes through fresh diet, positive mental health, and lifestyle choices determine skin’s health. Yoga plays a huge role in skin health as well considering we hold a lot of stress and emotions within our internal organs causing imbalances in the skin. The study of the self (Svadhyaya) is extremely beneficial and important to understand one’s own personal healing process and patterns from physical and mental health. She pursues a holistic way of living every day not only with her products but through art, travel, yoga, and meditation. She aspires to continue learning new ways to enhance her natural day to day routine through the people she meets and experiences she comes by.
