the circle

Founded by Joan Margaret, D.C. in 1981, Labrys Healthcare Circle is one of a kind natural and holistic wellness center, serving the Bay Area. 

We are an all women group of health and wellness practitioners who provide individual and collaborative services through personalized treatments and consultations - enhanced by group education, and held within a supportive community. Together, we bring in a combined experience of over 75 years and integrate a wide range of modalities, to facilitate comprehensive well-being for our growing circle of clients.

Our home-like office in a garden courtyard, is an intentional space for seekers of affirmative practices and self-healing education. We are conveniently located in North Oakland, close to both Berkeley and Emeryville. We are close to several highways, near Ashby BART, and on AC Transit route.
