About Us

Dr. Claudia Chica, PT, Dipl. CH, Dipl. Ac, DOM

For 6 years I had the honor and the blessing of working in collaboration with a very dear friend, and one of my most influential Integrative Medicine mentors, Joya-Lynn Schoen, MD. 

Dr. Schoen has been a caring, persistent, and passionate pioneer in the field of Integrative Medicine, Hormonal balancing, Functional Medicine and Anti-aging medicine. 

After a prolific and fulfilling medical career helping thousands of patients regain their health, Dr. Schoen retired in the summer of 2016 and reunited with friends and family in California. 

Dr. Claudia Chica and Dr. Joya-Lynn Schoen

I am forever grateful for everything I shared and learned from Dr. Schoen and will further my commitment to being in grateful and joyful service to the community. It is a highly regarded privilege to continue empowering the patients to make safe, wise and informed decisions concerning the latest advances in natural healing, nutrition, rejuvenation, longevity resources and wellness. 

I firmly believe that when addressing the body-mind connection and when given the right support, the body can and will move toward self-healing, self-regeneration and harmony.
