At Third Root Community Health Center, social justice is at the core of healing. Among our goals are to challenge systematic health disparities, hierarchies within different modalities of healthcare, and to provide a different model of care that grows out of love. We work to provide holistic healthcare for everyone, in acknowledgement of the living realities and histories of the many communities that our clients and students come from. We are also a worker-owned cooperative that believes in work place democracy, you can read more about this here.

All of our practitioners have received the appropriate trainings and licenses for their modality, as well as additional training based on their own interests. Please look at provider biographies to see who is perfect for you!

We strive to be Accessible, Empowering, and Collaborative

Accessible

We offer sliding scale fees, a staff trained in anti-oppression, and a clinic
that is building bridges within a community.

Collaborative

Practitioners from various modalities work together toward a client’s optimum
health. We have a vast referral network for practices or specialized care
outside of our scope of practice. We work with local and national social
justice organizations to build healthy communities from the outside in and
the inside out.

Empowering

Third Root is a place where people learn to make informed choices about
self-care and learn how to better care for themselves through the healing
they receive at Third Root. We offer health education workshops, a 3-tiered
Herbal Education Program, herb walks, and a resource library.
