Dr. Orit Vardi Tragash is a nationally board-certified Naturopathic Doctor and licensed acupuncturist. She works with all ages and conditions but has a passion for working with women and children.


Orit supports her patients using a variety of tools and tailors treatments to each individual. This holistic approach allows her to support patients on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. Treatments include acupuncture, body work, nutrition, supplements, herbs, homeopathy, and healthy lifestyle changes.


Common mama issues she addresses include: fatigue, stress, sleep disturbance, headaches, digestive complaints, pain, anxiety, depression, colds, infections, and gynecological complaints. Treatments used are safe for breastfeeding moms.


Common pediatric issues she addresses include: colic, vomiting, GERD, diarrhea, constipation, ear infections, colds, eczema, asthma, allergies, ADD/ADHD, and bed wetting. In addition to her general acupuncture education, Orit is trained in Shonishin pediatric acupuncture.


As a mom, Orit has personally experienced how support during the postpartum period can have a profound positive impact on all aspects of life. She is excited to be a part of this collective and to offer support to all members of the family.
