What We Do

Dragonfly Dispensary and Wellness Center

Dragonfly’s Mission is to provide the highest quality medicines and therapies for our patients at affordable prices. Dragonfly’s Vision is to be part of a healing and therapy movement and community that is rapidly becoming part of the global mainstream. Dragonfly’s goals are to empower patients to take control of their healing process through knowledge and information; to help patients decrease their dependence on harmful pharmaceuticals; and to seek out a variety of natural medicines and treatments rather than rely on one approach. We view wellness, health and healing within a whole system in which medicine, nutrition, mobility, structural alignment, systemic balance, emotional well-being, and the avoidance/cleansing of toxins and pathogens are integrally linked.

Chinese Herbs

Herbal Counseling and Remedies

Herbal healing is a gentle, natural way to allow the body to heal itself.  Herbs work in a holistic way by working with the body’s systems rather than by simply treating a symptom. Many herbs nourish and restore balance to body systems and internal organs so that they can heal and function in the way nature intended.

Acupuncture Therapy


Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years, evolving empirically with systematic observation of the human body. A holistic understanding of the universe, based on observation of patterns and movements in nature, has produced this elegant system of diagnosis and treatment. Very fine gauge needles are inserted into specific points on the body to effect physiological functions.

Bowenwork is a gentle manual therapy that works through the autonomous nervous system to reset the body to heal itself.  Bowenwork is completely safe and appropriate for everyone – from infants to the elderly, from athletes to people with chronic conditions.  Nothing in Bowenwork is contraindicated for any person or any condition.

Lymphatic and Deep Tissue Massage

Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is an effective form of lymphatic massage that uses gentle rhythmic movements over the skin to stimulate the lymph vessels. The lymphatic system is the detoxifying and waste disposal system of the body, pulling pathogens, toxins and excess fluid out of the tissue and cleansing the whole body.


A practice that cultivates Mindfulness.  Mindfulness is a specific way of paying attention to our experience — in the present moment, with open, spacious, and non-judgmental awareness.  When we’re mindful, we are in immediate contact with our experience, with heart and mind open.  And thus we are more available to our lives, and to those around us.


Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) originated in Japan and is a technique that encourages and promotes deep relaxation and relief from physical, mental and emotional stress. A gentle laying of hands on the body and auric field allows blocked energy (Ki) to open up and release old patterns.

T’ai Chi

Known as “moving meditation,” t’ai chi is a low-impact, slow-motion series of movements. As you move, you breathe deeply and naturally, focusing your attention on your bodily sensations. In t’ai chi movements are circular and never forced, the muscles are relaxed rather than tensed, the joints are not fully extended or bent. Tai chi can be easily adapted for anyone, from the most fit to people in wheelchairs or recovering from surgery.


Gently stretching each muscle in your body while focusing on your breath brings renewed energy, a feeling of well-being.  Yoga is an avenue toward healthy living by improving flexibility, strength and posture while calming the mind and relaxing the spirit.   “You are as young as your spine is flexible.”
