Education & Experience
Dr. Emily Gannaway grew up with the influence of multiple doctors in her family. Inspired by the work of her sister as an emergency room doctor, she began developing a deep interest in both preventive and primary care medicine. This inspired her to obtain a doctorate of naturopathic medicine. Then, while volunteering at a clinic in Nicaragua, she was exposed to the amazing healing effects of acupuncture. This exposure to indigenous medicine added to her strong commitment to work with the body’s innate ability to heal itself. As a result, Dr. Gannaway uses various modalities including plant-based medicine, alternative medicine and physical medicine.
Dr. Gannaway came back to the U.S. where she obtained a master of science in oriental medicine (MSOM). Because of her natural affinity for pediatrics and women's health, she pursued advanced studies in pediatrics, women’s healthcare, and pregnancy-related care. She completed both the naturopathic and obstetric programs as well as a two-year externship in pediatrics. Through the midwifery and obstetrics program, she learned about the many women’s health concerns that often go unaddressed. This inspired her to become a holistic pelvic care and arvigo techniques of maya abdominal therapy practitioner. Many years of training and internship left Dr. Gannaway with a wealth of knowledge and experience in family care.
Dr. Gannaway has also worked with men during her preceptorship, enhancing her understanding of men's health, rounding out her experience in family medicine.
