Imhotep is a 21st century clinic that utilizes diagnostic technology including MRI, X-Ray, Clinical Labs, and chiropractic instrumentation as well makes medical referrals when needed. However, our foundation is in ancient, indigenous and vitalistic systems such as Egyptian, Ayurvedic and Chinese healing. By using the name Imhotep, a master physician
from ancient Egypt and architect of the first pyramid under Pharaoh Zoser,
special attention is drawn to the antiquity of healing and the idea that the
body is a self healing entity. We believe healing starts with the spine.
