What does it mean to reclaim the sacred?

To reclaim the sacred means to take full responsibility for your personal connection to your Higher Power. It means to acknowledge yourself as the author of your life and take back your authorship; to recognize that your life is sacred and belongs to you.

To reclaim the sacred means to reclaim the power of language, your word, the capacity to pray and the ability to communicate with God, your Higher Power.

To reclaim the sacred is to heal the separation between yourself and your Creator; to deepen trust in God, yourself, and people.

To reclaim the sacred is to know what your “medicine” is — your gift — and to share it with your world.

With more than 25 years working in chiropractic; Tom Garcia a natural born shaman, has pioneered a path toward healing with a skilled hand, an open heart, and fine-tuned ear.

“My gift is creating sacred space, where people become present to something more powerful within themselves. The elements of earth, sky and fire provide the space for connecting with the sacred.” 


Chiropractic Care

Tom discovered early in his chiropractic practice that the root of people’s physical complaints runs much deeper than sciatica, lower back pain, headaches and other chronic pain issues. Rather, true healing begins on the emotional and spiritual level. Learn more here.


At the Fire's Edge

At the fire of our creative spirit lies our deepest desire to be known—to be seen, heard and felt in the world, a desire to live true to our purpose. Join Tom around the sacred flame of a fire circle and rediscover your truth. Learn more here.


Sacred Art

Tom presents his offering of sacred art through handcrafted prayer sculptures. These artistic expressions capture both long-standing Native American traditions while also celebrating the culture we find and develop for ourselves as time goes by. Learn more here.

What our Clients Say

Tom became my chiropractor after I had healed from a ruptured disc. I had not had traditional chiropractic for many years and was very apprehensive and protective of my neck. Over the last 2 years, I’ve come to trust Tom completely. I can relax in his presence because he tunes into me and knows intuitively what is needed. ... More

A year and a half ago I was desperately seeking healing for my mind, body, and spirit. I was new to Durango, Colorado and was referred to Dr. Tom Garcia by a dear friend. I immediately noticed his authenticity was remarkable just by speaking to him on the phone. ... More

Lisa Jean Gorgone

Sage, shaman, guide, and friend. Sitting at the fire with Tom felt like coming home—ancient, familiar, and profoundly moving. I sat at the fire circle in a small group at a time when there was a fire restriction. Fire was not even necessary to set the sacred space with Tom ... More

Robert Han Bishop, PhDHost & Producer, Transforming Reality Talk Show

It is difficult if not impossible to express in words what Tom does with his fire ceremonies and his prayer sculptures. It is best to experience these things on your own and to find your own meaning in them. For that is the essence of his work. ... More

Brad Tafoya

It is easy to sing my praises of Tom Garcia and his practice as a chiropractor and naturally talented healer. I commit to a drive from Durango to Ignacio each month even though we have plenty of chiropractors here in town, but Tom is the only one I trust to make me feel really great. More
