Our Mission
We help people reclaim their health so they can live fulfilled lives.

People suffering from unwanted health problems deserve to enjoy life again.  If we don't have our health and don't feel well, it's very difficult to enjoy life.  We help our patients by addressing their problems on the cellular level (where health begins), and support the body with targeted nutritional support to provide the body with the support it needs to function properly again.  When our bodies are functioning properly, there are no symptoms.  Our patients also benefit by the nutritional and lifestyle support we provide, so they are able to continue their journey into health empowered by the knowledge of what works for their body's needs.

Meet Dr. Gorla

"My favorite thing about Dr. Gorla is that he is very down to earth and a normal guy with a family and kids. He is wonderfully compassionate and cares deeply for his patients, and he has been a true blessing in my life!" - FY, Boone
Committed To Our Community

As the only Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in the High Country, Dr. Gorla strives to help people understand the best doctor is their own body. When given the proper support, our bodies can often return to healthy function at most any age. His passion is to help people achieve and maintain their healthcare goals.

Dr. Gorla is a specialist with over 20 years of experience and understands the frustration of people who are trying to achieve wellness in a healthcare system that focuses on symptom management rather than identifying and addressing the root cause of the problem. He has incorporated consults with people all over the country to help them regain their health.
