Welcome To Restorative Health

Compassion, respect, and empathy are the foundational principles of care at Restorative Health in Washington, DC. Ali Safayan, MD, built his practice with the intention of creating a space where patients feel understood and cared for in a way that is often lacking in modern medicine. 

Restorative Health combines the best of Eastern and Western medicine to provide patients with truly comprehensive care. In this holistic approach, patients play an active role in their health care. 

As a lifelong educator, Dr. Safayan gives his patients the time they need to fully understand their health concerns. He acts as an ally and partner to promote whole-body health and wellness, rather than pushing medication or unnecessary treatments. 

As a holistic practice, Restorative Health strives to uncover the root cause of a problem instead of masking the symptoms. The team offers treatments such as prolotherapy, medical nutrition, medical acupuncture, naturopathy, psychotherapy, physical therapy, and myofascial therapy. 

Dr. Safayan and his team offer treatments and therapies that eliminate or manage pain and restore balance to a patient’s physical, emotional, and mental health without the uncomfortable side effects of addictive medication and invasive surgical procedures. 

Medical acupuncture, intramuscular therapy (dry needling), nutritional services, IV therapy, and the Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET®) are just a few types of alternative medicine that Restorative Medicine offers for patients looking to improve their overall health and well-being.
