On October 1st, Fern Cove Natural Medicine had the opportunity to move to a new space, just down the street from its old location. We are in the center of town, just south of the Raven’s Nest on Vashon Highway SW and next to the Ace Hardware store. Due to this incredible opportunity, Fern Cove Natural Medicine is able to provide some exciting new therapies.
For those of you with pain, whether it be acute or chronic, consider Class IV therapeutic laser. The Lightforce Laser by Litecure is mainly prescribed for musculoskeletal complaints such as plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, frozen shoulder, carpel tunnel syndrome, muscle strains, healing after surgery and more. There is also a lot of research happening right now in regards to its use for neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s/dementia. As well, it’s great for healing skin lesions, trigeminal neuralgia, Bell’s palsy and those super painful shingles lesions. The potential uses for this laser are very exciting!

Fern Cove Natural Medicine is now utilizing diathermy as a therapeutic tool. Diathermy is a deep heating therapy used to treat infections including the flu and other upper respiratory tract infections. It can also be used for gastrointestinal infections as well as sinus infections. Diathermy is usually used in conjunction with constitutional hydrotherapy, another service that Fern Cove Natural Medicine provides, to boost the immune system.
Starting in February, Fern Cove Natural Medicine will welcome Shanna Rivera from Flow Well to perform thermography scans on patients. Thermography is a radiation-free, state-of-the-art screening procedure that uses heat detection to locate areas of temperature differences in the body. Most pathological processes demonstrate a form of increased heat. Breast disease can be detected by looking for areas of excessive heat that may indicate an increase of blood vessels stimulated by a growing tumor. Shanna offers breast thermography as well as whole body thermography to assess your thyroid, nervous system, abdominal inflammation, and lymphatic congestion. Check out www.flowwell.org for more information. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment, please contact her at Shanna@FlowWell.org.
Fern Cove Natural Medicine is excited to offer these therapies. Call us today at 206-693-4143 for more information!
