Healing Arts Center Combines Holistic Medicine with Creative Self-Exploration


by RENEE PATRICK Cascade Business News Feature Writer

The May 6 Art Walk will kick off the opening of the Hawthorn Healing Arts Center in downtown Bend at 39 NW Louisiana Ave.  The inaugural show, Spirit of Renewal, will feature artists Julia Junkin and David Kinker, music by Shireen Amini and an appearance by the Kasbah Dance Troupe Collective. The center will give away various coupons and promotions to entice visitors to enjoy the services they provide.

The center was created by Dr. Joshua Phillips and his wife, Chelsea Phillips, LAc, MOSM.  The couple have been practicing naturopathic family medicine in Bend for seven years but wanted to expand on their services to integrate physical health with the pursuit of mental harmony.

“I believe that we are meant to live inspired lives, to cultivate our deeper gifts and to know a sense of peace and joy within ourselves,” said Dr. Phillips. “Our goal is to facilitate this journey through not only dealing with physical health concerns, but also addressing mental and emotional disharmony. We want to help people grow toward truly knowing themselves.”

Some of the services the Hawthorn Healing Arts Center provides include naturopathic primary care, acupuncture and Chinese medicine, clinical herbal medicine, massage and bodywork, medical intuition/coaching and art and music therapy classes.

The center has a shop offering self-care products, artwork and jewelry from local artists and welcomes contact from those in the community who would like to display their works.

You can visit Hawthorn Healing Arts Center at 39 NW Louisiana Ave. (just south of McMenamins) Monday–Friday, 9am–6pm, walk-ins welcome. 541-330-0334, www.hawthorncenter.com.
