Our story goes back a bit - 7 years to be exact. I contacted Dr. Jo Ruddy at Counseling Concepts, LLC because her information was the first that popped up when I typed in "hypnotherapy in Tucson." I was suffering from post-partum depression, emotional issues, and suicidal thoughts. I had met with many psychiatrists and psychologists and felt I knew how to "play the game" / provide the answers they needed so that I did not end up in being admitted. Honestly, I believe that Dr. Ruddy was brought into my life to be my mirror. Not only did she show me who I was at the time, but she also showed me who I have always been. Her kind, no-nonsense approach to mindfulness was not challenged me to really focus inward and find myself. Dare I say, we laughed, we cried, and she became a part of me. I realize that I had to do the work, but I couldn't not have done it as effectively, eloquently (tears, snot, and all), and effeciently without Dr. Ruddy's guidance, love, support, and light. She gave me one of my most precious gifts - me - and I am forever thankful.

I experienced both a private healing session and a shaman journey. Jim put me at ease immediately and helped me to work out a family issue that I had been working on for years with many different healers, reiki etc. He is amazing and so easy to talk to. I highly recommend him to anyone with a physical or emotional issue that they are struggling with.

I have had many massages from Lourie and each one was fantastic! Her technique is thorough and firm enough to make all my muscles relax. She is also a pleasure to know and has very reasonable pricing. I highly recommend Lourie for a terrific massage. She really knows what she is doing.

    About

    In China, the standard-of-care in internal medicine involves the use of herbal formulas. Mastering the use of Chinese herbs demands dedication and years of study. Unlike most practitioners who use herbs as a complement to acupuncture, I have made it my specialty and have a unique history of clinical experience treating with Chinese herbal medications.

    About

    I began bodyworking in 1995 in the San Fransisco Bay Area. My work has evolved to include a deep tissue and Quantum Touch Energy approach to long-term injury and pain management, as well as basic body and somatic balancing needs, which may include diet and nutrition counseling. I am a licenced Massage Therapist in the state of Arizona as well as national board certified Holistic Health Practitioner with a separate certification in Holistic Mental Health. I trained for 2 1/2 years in Cranio Osteopathic Connective Tissue Release as it pertains to spinal, and musculoskeletal alignment. I believe in assisting the body/mind/emotional space healing response from within, resolving the core causes of ill health, rather than just treating the symptoms. The Quantum Touch-based energy work I use activates the body's natural desire to heal. It is, very simply, a direct communication between myself and a client's tissues. This treatment is very effective and less physically invasive than pressure related deep tissue work; however, I recognize that there is also a time and place for deep pressure/tissue treatments and implement these methods as needed. I look forward to assisting your body's desire to be well, feel good, and function in full balance and strength. Many blessings.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is naturopathic medicine?

    Naturopathic medicine is classified as an alternative healing method, but licensed naturopathic doctors share some of the same academic background as conventional medical doctors and can often prescribe some medications. According to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP), naturopathic medicine is holistic care that addresses a wide range of problems including (but not limited to) allergies, chronic pain, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, obesity, respiratory conditions, heart disease, fertility problems, menopause, adrenal fatigue, cancer, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Naturopathic medicine aims to strengthen and empower the body and its organs to heal itself through low-force interventions. Here are some examples of the type of medical services often provided by naturopathic doctors, as cited by the AANP:

    • Clinical and laboratory diagnostic testing
    • Nutritional medicine
    • Botanical medicine
    • Naturopathic physical medicine (including naturopathic manipulative therapy)
    • Hygiene
    • Counseling
    • Minor surgery
    • Homeopathy
    • Acupuncture
    • Intravenous and injection therapy
    • Naturopathic obstetrics (natural childbirth)

    Do naturopaths take insurance?

    Many naturopathic doctors accept insurance, but a separate question is whether your insurance covers alternative and naturopathic services. There are several steps you can take to find out:

    • Verify whether you live in one of the 20 states that currently licenses naturopathic physicians:
      • Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and Washington.
    • Confirm whether your insurance will cover naturopathic medical services. Read your insurance plan’s fine print, verify whether naturopathic doctors fall into your insurance carrier’s definition of a doctor, and confirm that the care you are receiving is considered medically necessary. Questions to ask your insurance provider could include:
      • Am I covered for this treatment by a naturopathic physician?
      • Do I need a referral?
      • Is there a list of approved naturopathic doctors in my network?
      • What will the co-pay be?
      • Are there limits to my naturopathic coverage?
    • Before seeking medical care, it’s key to understand the difference between a naturopathic doctor and a naturopath. Anyone may advertise themselves as a naturopath, while to be a licensed naturopathic doctor, a person must complete academic and clinical training.

    Can naturopathic doctors prescribe medication?

    Licensed naturopathic doctors can prescribe some pharmaceutical medication. Naturopathic doctors complete academic training similar to that of conventional physicians: a bachelor’s degree with a focus on pre-med studies, followed by a four-year residential naturopathic medical program whose first two years have a similar foundation to that of a conventional medical school. After completing their studies, they must pass a post-doctoral exam. Although licensed naturopathic physicians are able to prescribe medication, they usually focus on prevention rather than treatment of symptoms. A naturopathic doctor will offer a holistic approach to your care that encompasses your mental, physical and emotional health. While they will prescribe medication as needed to treat illness, they are also likely to be creating shifts in your lifestyle and nutrition to effect deeper changes in your body’s response to illness.   

    How do you find a good naturopath?

    It’s important not to get misled by the title “naturopath” when searching for a naturopathic doctor. A naturopathic doctor is a licensed professional, while anyone who so desires can call themselves a naturopath. A naturopathic doctor has completed eight years of schooling and is licensed to provide high-quality medical care. When searching for a naturopathic doctor, a good place to start is by researching your state’s licensing and regulatory body for that profession.

    Currently, 20 U.S. states license the practice of naturopathic medicine. For those seeking holistic, body-centered healing solutions, a naturopathic doctor can be a good fit. They use natural medicines as well as treatments such as electrotherapy and ayurvedic medicine to encourage the body to heal. Once you have determined a list of naturopathic physicians who are licensed in your state, look for reviews, ask for referrals, and interview the physician in person or by phone to find the right care provider for your health needs.

    How long do naturopathic doctors go to school?

    Like conventional physicians, naturopathic doctors undergo rigorous academic and clinical training prior to practice. Typically naturopathic doctors go to school for eight years. There are currently 20 states in the U.S. that provide licensing for naturopathic doctors. According to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, a naturopathic doctor must complete a bachelor’s degree and an accredited four-year residential naturopathic medical program, and pass an extensive postdoctoral board examination, the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations (NPLEX), in order to receive a license or registration to practice medicine.

    The first two years of the residential naturopathic medical program cover many of the same areas of study as conventional medical schools. Naturopathic doctors provide primary patient holistic care. The goal of naturopathic medicine is preventative care and a focus on low force intervention healing methods. This can include natural medicines, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, homeopathy and much more. Naturopathic doctors often work in tandem with conventional medical doctors, as the two practices complement one another.
