Groton Wellness attests it’s the only wellness center in the nation that offers family dentistry, orthodontics and medical, as well as a detoxification spa and organic café all under one roof. It is a onestop-shop for holistic wellness in all aspects of a patient’s life. The center started as a biological dental practice more than a decade ago, but owners G. Robert Evans, DMD, and Jean M. Nordin-Evans, DDS, felt limited in seeing their patients through to optimal health without a support system.
“Before the medical center, spa and café were introduced, patients would be sent an hour or even two hours away to receive appropriate follow-up care,” says Amy Ashman, director of marketing at Groton Wellness. For the past eight years, patients have benefited from receiving the integrative health care that they need to feel healthy, happy and nurtured all in one place.
The medical department at Groton Wellness is comprised of 12 medical practitioners including two medical doctors. Richard Chen, M.D., is new to the staff and is a functional medicine doctor who specializes in gut health issues, endocrine issues, auto-immune disorders, chronic fatigue, depression, natural hormone replacement, non-spinal arthritis injections and more. Daniel Cagua-Koo, M.D., is an integrative family doctor who has extensive experience treating environmental toxicity, especially biotoxin illnesses from mold, chemicals and Lyme.
Holistic nurse practitioner and holistic gynecologist Irina Serebryakova provides many screenings and tests that conventional medical offices don’t provide, including the OligoScan. This test detects minerals, oxidative stress and heavy metals using spectrophotometry with a quick, non-invasive scan of the palm of a patient’s hand. Other medical services offered include energy and vibrational medicine, acupuncture, herbal medicine, hormone balancing, gynecology, diet and lifestyle planning and more.
On staff are six dentists, one of whom is an orthodontist. The dental department draws clients from all over the world for safe mercury amalgam removal. All of the dentists specialize in emotionally mindful dentistry in order to help eliminate anxiety surrounding a patient’s dental procedure. Says Ashman, “When I needed a tooth pulled, Bob Evans helped me with a completely different way of thinking, where I was able to appreciate how hard my tooth had worked for me instead of seeing it as a horrible burden.”
The café is a hot spot for nutritionally balanced, clean, organic, local and seasonal food. Chef Arwyn Lennon has more than three decades of culinary experience, and works closely with the doctors to craft nurturing and medicinal meals and cleanses. The café has just introduced a medicinal bone broth bar.
Whole-body detoxification, holistic skin care, massage therapy and colon hydrotherapy are but a small sampling of the treatments available at the spa. On top of the many services provided, Groton Wellness Center opens its doors to the public for as many as 20 educational events every month. Events scheduled for December span a range of topics including: Protecting Your Energy, Bone Broth for Healthy Holidays, Lyme Disease, Shelter Building, Essential Oils for Giving and Receiving Love, Women’s Inner Wisdom Circle and more.
Location: Groton Wellness, Mill Run Plaza, 493-495 Main St., Groton. To learn more or see a full schedule of events, call 978-449-9919 or visit GrotonWellness.com.
