His passion for natural medicine began with pursuit of culinary arts (Johnson and Wales University), which led him to study Nutrition (University of Rhode Island).

Dr. Henninger believes that the integration of body, mind, and spirit can do wonders for his patients and their family. He holds true that your body is designed to heal on it’s own. Emotional stress, dietary stress, chemical toxins, physical pain, and the decline of our environment all effect how we function in today’s society. Through many years of practice Dr. Henninger has learned to provide effectiveness and value in his treatment strategies combining skills of a physician, homeopathy, biomedical approaches, craniosacral therapy, and acupuncture to guide patients through their healing journey.

Keeping in mind that each individual possesses a unique medical puzzle that is waiting to be solved. That is why Dr. Henninger treats each person individually, providing care with one goal in mind – to unlock this puzzle and allow each individual to thrive.
