taThe Phoenix Farmers Market is Back!

Willow was celebrating the re-opening of our Phoenix Farmers Market in the May issue.

Meet Dr. Tom Messinger at Bear Creek Naturopathic Clinic

Dr. Tom, are you new to the area?
Yes, my wife and I moved to Talent 7/2019. We had lived in Portland, OR for 13 years. We loved it there but had a strong calling to live rurally and leave the city life. It was a big decision that we did not take lightly. I had an extremely successful practice and was the director of a busy integrative clinic with 10 other doctors. I was very close with my patients. However, my life was entirely work, typically putting in 70-hour work weeks. I had a desire to bring more balance into my life in addition to helping people heal.
