Dr. Carney employs herbs, nutritional supplements, acupuncture, homeopathy, lifestyle medicine and low level laser therapy in his approach to optimizing health.

This is an open format support group. The goal is to generate supportive, positive energy between members, share information and experiences, and ask questions. There may be occasions that are topic focused with the theme coming from members' suggestions.

We follow the Ridgefield school schedule during inclement weather. Groups are always cancelled when school and/or after school activities are cancelled.
