The Traditional Healing Clinic provides traditional Alaska Native approaches to health in an outpatient setting in conjunction with other services offered at Southcentral Foundation.
Tribal doctors assist people of all ages with practices such as Healing Hands, Culturally-sensitive supportive counseling, Cleansing, Healing Touch, Talking Circles, prayer, songs, dances and consultations with Elders.
In addition, there is an Alaska Native Traditional Healing Garden. As a teaching garden, the majority of these plants are native to Alaska. For thousands of years, these plants have nourished and healed our people. We believe that everything was put on this earth for a purpose.
Our healing garden allows us to demonstrate traditional healing plants that have been used for generations.
