Olá, I’m Dr. Cindy!

Hi! I'm Dr. Cindy Azevedo, a Naturopathic Doctor & Acupuncturist.


Wherever you’re at on your health and wellness journey, know that I’m 100% on your team and know where you’re coming from. 


I started Holly Grove Health so that I could help women to heal their body, mind & soul from the inside-out using natural health. 


Fun fact: Holly Grove Health is a nod to my Portuguese heritage. My last name, Azevedo, is derived from Azevinho, which beautifully translates to "Holly Grove."


For me, Holly Grove Health is so much more and beyond a name. Holly Grove relates to the holism of a natural terrain, and the divine healing powers. In ancient times, holly plant represented the balance between masculine and feminine, fertility, and health. It's a symbol of protection for moving through the darkness and into the bright, fresh fertility of spring. Holly Grove is a representation of life, energy, essence, faith, and the divine healing power of nature within all of us.  


Pretty perfect for a gal from a family of farmers and basket weavers, right? 


My goal is to inspire you and bring you past the darkness and uncertainty of symptoms that feel like they've taken over your body, and bring you into the lightness of vibrant health and balance.

Your hormonal health doesn’t have to feel out of your control...

I understand that your unique body is beautiful, wise, and inherently healthy. But I also know that it doesn't always feel that way, especially when you're facing hormonal imbalances and other health challenges.

Symptoms like anxiety, infertility, weight gain, acne, hair loss, and more can make you feel like your body has been hijacked by an out-of-control hormonal rollercoaster.

Let’s be real: it often takes years for many women to get the answers they need. This means:

  • Years of feeling dismissed by your doctor

  • Years of hearing that "birth control pills are the only option"

  • Years of being told "it’s all in your head"

  • And years of persistent symptoms, no matter what you do


If any of these experiences resonate with you, welcome to a supportive sisterhood.

Here’s a secret: I’ve been there too!

My own health journey ignited my passion for helping other women heal their hormones naturally. I believe in empowering women to take control of their health outside the conventional insurance model, free from pharmaceutical propaganda, and in alignment with traditional family values. I specialize in working with women of childbearing age and traditional couples wanting to grow their families.

I offer comprehensive one-to-one care that addresses a full range of health concerns, including Gut Health, Detoxification Support, Hormonal Health, Mitochondrial Health, Thyroid Health, Natural Fertility, and Metabolic Health.

Together, we can work towards restoring your body’s natural balance and achieving optimal health, naturally.

If you're frustrated and exhausted by the corrupt and failed "healthcare" system and are open to a hand-holding healing experience, look no further. When I began working with Dr. Cindy I was completely depleted; emotionally, physically and mentally. The thought of even meeting with a Dr. to discover what was going on seemed daunting. Within minutes of meeting with Dr. Cindy, I felt at ease. I felt listened to, cared for and supported. Dr. Cindy, to her core, wants her patients to HEAL. She is not in the business of prescribing drugs to put a bandaid on things. She wants her patients to have vitality, joy and to thrive. Dr. Cindy not only listened to me and my concerns, but thoroughly explained everything so carefully, precisely and deeply that there was zero "following blindly". I now understood what was happening within my body and the path I was embarking on with her steadfast guidance. Within a few weeks, my wellness returned. Within a few months I was transformed. Meeting and working with Dr. Cindy has been such a blessing. God has given her gifts and she is using them in integrity and excellence. Stacy R. McKenna Executive Coach

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to our most common questions

  • What is your practice like?
    My practice is set up to see one patient at a time for one-to-one care. My time is focused on your care rather than juggling between multiple rooms at once. When you schedule an appointment, this time is reserved especially for you. Outside of your scheduled visits, significant time is committed to researching and preparing for visits. Depending on the complexity of concerns, a treatment plan may or may not be offered at the end of the first visit. Factors that guide my practice include the philosophical principles of Naturopathic Medicine and East Asian Medicine to stimulate the healing power of Nature. These practice principles are distinctive but also complementary to mainstream medical care to help reduce risk of adverse effects, increase therapeutic benefits for healthier outcomes, improve quality of life, and decrease reoccurrence of illness. Typically, the natural modalities used are gentle and non-toxic with few to negligible side effects. My role is to offer you natural health & wellness options. Careful consideration is taken with interactions and contraindications. In Massachusetts, Naturopathic Medicine is recognized and awaiting for the board to distribute licenses. Therefore, Naturopathic Doctors cannot treat, diagnose, prescribe pharmaceutical drugs, perform surgery, and order imaging. Rather, NDs in MA serve as natural medicine consultants and can collaborate with other providers. In Massachusetts, Acupuncture is recognized and licensed through the Board of Registration in Medicine. Depending on your concerns and conditions, a collaborative approach to care is encouraged with respect to reaching your goals safely.
  • Are your services covered by insurance?
    Currently, I do not participate directly with any insurance plans. My obligation is to your health rather than meeting the contractual demands of insurance plans. Insurance companies impose many restraints with reimbursement and are structured to reward practitioners who see a large volume in a short amount of time. You can check with your insurance company to see if they will reimburse you for your visits. An invoice to submit to your insurance for reimbursement can be provided upon request. Some but not all insurance companies recognize the value of Acupuncture and Natural Medicine to reimburse. It's advisable to specifically ask what your plan benefits and coverages are for out-of-network providers and if any restrictions exist. Your coverage is plan-dependent. Note any restrictions with particular ICD-10 or CPT codes. Some services are covered under Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account.
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    Payment in full by cash, check or credit card is due at time of service. This helps keep operating costs of a small practice down and the fees reasonable. The costs of treatments and supplements are tax-deductible as a medical expense. Your health is a wise investment in the present and future.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    Please provide a minimum of 24-hour notice to reschedule or cancel your appointment. Due to extensive time devoted to each appointment, a fee will be charged for late cancellations and missed appointments. Please call the office to reschedule or cancel your appointment with over 24-hour notice to avoid this fee.
  • Should I stop taking my medications?
    This question is best for your prescribing physician. Technically, without prescriptive rights, I do not recommend completely stopping medications. If you are experiencing adverse effects from medications or need to alter dosages, please refer to the prescribing physician. However, many patients visit natural medicine practitioners with concerns of adverse effects, potential risks, and the rising costs of pharmaceuticals. Natural therapies may reduce unwanted side effects, decrease or possibly replace the need for prescriptions.
  • How many visits or treatments will I need?
    The answer will vary from person to person, as this is very individual. The frequency and number of visits depends on individual health needs and the pace of progress. In general, complex or long-standing chronic conditions require more commitment than acute conditions. Over time, the effect of each treatment builds up to be more effective with longer lasting results. Your committed efforts with continuity of care is important to support your journey to better health.
  • What can I do to prepare for the appointments?
    The first appointment involves intaking a comprehensive health history followed with an appropriate treatment or ​recommendations. Depending on the complexity of your concerns, this visit can range from 1 to 2 hours. The paperwork necessary for your initial visit may take 20-30 minutes to complete. For efficiency, it is best to complete this paperwork (intake forms, consent form, waivers, HIPAA) prior to your visit. You may also bring copies of any lab work and imaging reports along with your current medication and supplementation regimen. The follow-up visits will be recommended accordingly as part of the treatment plan. In general, follow-up acupuncture visits are 60 minutes and naturopathic consults are 30 minutes. It is important to keep good mental or written notes of your response to treatments. This feedback helps to gauge progress and adjustments can be made accordingly. Here are a few other general guidelines to help prepare for your acupuncture or craniosacral treatments: Avoid eating a large meal immediately before or after. But, do not skip a meal. Make sure to have a snack or light meal. Wear comfortable loose fitted clothing. Tight-fitting sports bras without latches can make it difficult to access certain acupuncture points on the back. Stay well hydrated with water, especially after your visits to help the body remove waste products mobilized during your sessions. Plan your activities to include some rest after your sessions. Do not over-exercise or work at top performance.
