Future Prospects

  Dreams of a Mobile Clinic

Amy and Naike are nurturing their dreams of a mobile clinic that will allow them to take their healing arts throughout the United States and around the globe to benefit those of diverse socioeconomic backgrounds and cultures.  Hawaii has been our home for the past 3 years.  Now that we have more access to resources on the mainland,  we will assemble a prototype for our Mobile Clinic, while living in the Pacific Northwest.

We hope to start a  documentary series once on the road, which will explore systems of medicine, from east to west, modern to traditional.  We would like to showcase our work and those who we meet along the way.  Our journey will focus on the pursuit and expansion of our knowledge of how people live and heal; finding ways to share that with the greater community.
