Hi, I’m Dr. Heather Tick.

Over the past 30 years, I’ve helped tens of thousands of people manage their complex pain problems, take back their lives and learn how to thrive. Helping your body heal requires knowing as much as you can about the key aspects of health. I can help you with all of them.



Do you feel like you’ve tried everything?


Do your doctors prescribe drugs that don’t help?


Do you constantly feel tired and worn out?


Do you wish you had a doctor that understand you?

Your life can be different. I can help you thrive.
