Meet Mandy Gulla

Meet Mandy Gulla

ND, LMT, Founder and Medical Director

Dr. Gulla is holistic physician guided by the philosophy that all human beings have an innate potential for healing and fulfillment. Her interest in whole person healing began with the mind-and-body connection and transformative power found in art. As an undergraduate, she focused on visual, performance and healing arts, expanding her knowledge of literature, painting, developmental movement patterning, dance and yoga at The Evergreen State College.

Moved to study medicine to improve quality and compassion and to deepen patient understanding and empowerment, Dr. Gulla earned a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, a certificate in Midwifery, and a certificate in Massage Therapy at Bastyr University. Completing a CNME accredited residency at the Center for Natural and Integrative Medicine in Orlando, FL under the direct solo mentorship of Dr. Kirti Kalidas MD, ND, they focused on Integrative Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease, collaborating with over 20 varied allied health providers.

In her over a decade of clinical practice, she has focused on gently unraveling and treating complex, multi-system dysfunction. Dr. Gulla teaches and consults with Physicians and Medical Students in her private practice and as Adjunct Faculty at Bastyr University , where she teaches Advanced IV Therapy.  She feels a strong connection to the community and the earth and is grateful to serve the San Juan Islands.


Fun fact: Dr. Gulla is an INFJ with an Aquarius Sun, a Cancer Moon, and an Aries rising.

“To Dr. Gulla, Living well Medical Arts. I would like to thank you personally for your excellent ways of nurturing body and mind. Your knowledge of the body and also your spiritual insight give you a unique healing way. Since I've stared with your practice, I've changed my diet and my attitude, and at 63 yrs, am feeling good. My last visit to you was unscheduled, but I was welcomed quickly and you went to work! I had chest pains I couldn't account for. You took the precautions of a possible heart issue, and we went over that extensively. While I was there, you preformed some body work on muscular and skeletal possibilities, and prescribed herbal medicines to make the pain diminish. The tests bore no heart problems, and you followed up the results with the suggestion of some more adjustments, so I could regain 100% pain free mobility. You are a caring person as well as a practiced Dr. I'm lucky to have entered your caring team! Thank you kindly, Dr. Gulla, Keep up the good work!”
