What We Stand For

The ‘root,’ is how you come in feeling on your first visit.

The ‘branches’ are how your health evolves and transforms while working together.

Imagine what it would be like and the things you could start doing if you had greater energy, more joy, better digestion, and increased mobility.

As a whole health clinic – we treat you as a whole person, not just one isolated symptom at a time. We value a whole team approach to your care.

You feeling vibrant and resilient in the long run is the ultimate goal.

You Are Important To us

We Think You’ll Appreciate:

N

That you feel heard, validated, and supported.

N

That you receive kind and compassionate care.

N

That we provide a comfortable and inclusive space for all. 

N

That we help to identify the root cause of why you are feeling the way that you are, rather than solely focusing on symptom management.

N

That your assessment and treatment plan are top quality and evidence-based.

N

That we give back to the health of our local community beyond what we do in the clinic and that is why we are proud members of the Quarter Club.

Meet Your Leaders

Roots to Branches was founded in 2014, by Dr. Tracy Palmer ND. In the Spring of 2022, in alignment with the values of the clinic, she realized that she no longer wanted to head the clinic on her own. She knew that the clinic could make a greater impact on the community, inspire more creativity, and just be more plain fun if she could do it with someone else.

There was no better fit to help take Roots to Branches to the next level than Dr. Stephanie Galea, DC.

Dr. Tracy Palmer ND and Dr. Stephanie Galea DC, co-lead Roots to Branches. Together they have a passion for changing the narrative for women’s health care, helping women flourish throughout all stages of their lives through evidence-based care, and like to have fun in the process.
