There is a new business in Jamestown for those wanting to experience the healing power of nature.
Trillium Family Naturopathic & Classical Homeopathy is the new natural healing practice operated by Aaron M. Smith, a government accredited doctor of naturopathic medicine. Trillium is located in the lower-level of the Medical Arts Building, 500 Pine St., and will be hosting a grand opening 2 to 4:30 p.m. today with light refreshments served and the opportunity for potential clients to meet Smith. Also, during January and February, clients can receive a 10 percent discount on Smith's naturopathic services.
The Cassadaga native works as a consultant in natural healing, working with people of all ages and dealing with various health concerns, from acute to chronic problems.

''I assist clients in the healing process by providing them with information on various modalities in complementary healing such as herbs, homeopathy and nutrition,'' he said. ''I have a deep love for herbs and homeopathy, and they are my primary modalities.''
Smith had taken over the natural healing practice of acupuncturist and naturopathic doctor Toby Hallowitz of Westfield before moving his office to Jamestown. Smith still deals with naturopathic and classical homeopathy natural healing practices, but Laura Mitchell-Woolson handles acupuncture by appointments on Friday. Smith's naturopathic services can be scheduled by appointment Monday through Saturday by calling 720-1756, which is the same number to set up an acupuncture session.
''It is my pleasure to serve Chautauqua County. I hold the area and the people very dear to my heart,'' he said. ''I also offer myself as a resource to all health care providers who may have questions about various healing modalities their patients are utilizing. I am willing to be their resource for information as well.''
Smith said 17 states license naturopathic doctors as primary care providers, but New York does not. He said he has a license in the state of Vermont.
''Our training is very much focused in primary care medicine and it is our hope that we can help fill the shortage of primary care providers,'' he said.
Smith is offering a homeopathy 101 at the Lily Dale Spiritualist Church from 1 to 3 p.m. Jan. 28. He is hoping to offer more workshops and lectures in the area in the future.
