MD, ACU, DAAFP, DABIHM
Dr. Roca helps patients achieve their best health using Functional Medicine and Integrative Medicine. Dr. Roca is particularly successful with patients who feel as if their only option has been taking more medications, or who have been told that everything is fine despite feeling poorly, or who feel as if they are stuck and making little progress to better health. Dr. Roca develops a specific patient-centered plan of action based on the patient's entire life story. In understanding the complex interactions among symptoms and diseases, both now and over the course of a lifetime, Dr. Roca can guide the patient in unwinding their symptoms and returning to their best health. He regularly utilizes natural products, acupuncture, nutritional medicine, movement therapies, and mind-body therapies. Specific therapies include Battlefield Acupuncture, Acupuncture for PTSD/Anxiety/Stress, HeartMath, and Journey Work. He sees patients individually and in a group setting.
Dr. Roca loves to be present in nature. He finds nature both healing and inspiring. He also enjoys seeing the world through the eyes of the traveler and through the eyes of little kids. Such immense appreciation for mystery and such gratitude flows through them. And he enjoys diving into the depths of what drives thoughts and feelings, memories and behaviors - it is in this shadow work that brilliance is born.
