I had a great experience at the Magnolia Massage & Holistic Health Service (San Francisco). Jennifer was courteous and skillful. Being 7 1/2 month pregnant, I have muscle tension in several areas of my body. Her massage offered a good relief.

Larisa made my first time Reiki experience absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend Larisa if you are a newcomer or experienced receiver for Reiki. She is very knowledgeable about a wide range of topics, including crystals, eastern medicine, and philosophy. I'm a technical, data-driven individual. I was skeptical of Reiki at first, but never doubtful. After my first session, I felt more relaxed, mindful, and grounded. Coincidence? Maybe. But it's an interesting and good feeling nonetheless. If you are a bit skeptical, know that Larisa has been an engineer for 2 decades before she practice Reiki.

My experience with Marie was life changing! She was very attentive and caring, it was obvious to me from the start that she really wanted to help me. She helped me to unblock my chakras and to release all my pent up negative emotions and self limiting beliefs. Well, as Marie says, you do all the work on your own, but undoubtedly she is the catalyst for you to open up the side of you that will allow you to heal yourself. I've had a rough and painful year but after this experience I know that I can put that behind me and step into a new cycle of health, abundance, wisdom, and harmony. Marie is truly special! I would highly recommend to anyone seeking holistic healing to get in touch with her for a session!

I took my 18 year daughter to Sean because early Dec she started experiencing severe abdominal pain from a UC flare up. She was diagnosed in March 2016 but had never experience this kind of pain. After going to the ER a couple of times and even being admitted into hospital for a weekend the pain continued. As a mother I became desperate to find a way to relieve my daughter from the pain she was suffering. I started researching and came across Sean and Blue Bear Healing. I looked on his website and read his reviews. I didn't have anything to lose and my daughter was open to try anything. I am so glad that I took that step and Sean was available to see my daughter on the same day I called him. My daughter had 3 sessions with Sean and every time she saw him I could see her more relaxed. I do think that Sean's ability to look into her emotions and physical being helped her through the pain that is now almost completely gone. She is still seeing a medical doctor and taking medications but mentally and emotionally Sean has helped my daughter through this tough period in her young life. I also think he has made her see herself in a different way that will help her throughout her life.

I came to Eternal-Therapy on the recommendation of my friend, Dalina, who works there as a Reiki practitioner. I had been dealing with a lot of stress in my personal life at that time, and she advised me to come in for a Reiki session. I knew little about Reiki, aside from what I read about it online - an alternative form of medicine which involved reading a person's life force energy. I came in for a session with Dalina and Elaine, and I was amazed at how accurate their descriptions were of the aspects of my life that were stressing me out, as well as the aspects of myself that needed improvement, just from one brief interview and one Reiki session! Reiki at Eternal-Therapy is something that you have to experience yourself to understand what it truly is! I left the session with a whole new outlook on my life and the way my soul felt afterwards was indescribable. It was like I felt a sense of clarity about myself and how I should live my life going forward. I came in simply expecting therapy, but left with a whole new attitude about myself and the world. Come in with an open mind to Eternal-Therapy and you'll be amazed at the results. This was my first time doing a Reiki session at Eternal-Therapy and I'll definitely be coming back for more. Highly recommended!

I can't say enough about working with Alma. She has been a goddess of information, and encouragement, and has helped me take charge of my health destiny. When I started working with Alma, I was feeling overwhelmed by changes happening in my body. I was suffering from painful arthritis and having difficulty finding balance in my life. I knew my diet was out of control, but needed help getting on a healthier path. Alma systematically took stock of my chemistries and mapped out a plan to optimize my nutrition. She introduced me to ways of controlling my pain without drugs and made numerous resources available. She also introduced me to healthier alternatives for pain relief. Her approach was holistic, collaborative, supportive - and she made it all manageable. She met me precisely where I was and supported me forward. What a gift! I'm delighted my arthritis pain and inflammation have subsided. I continue to find pleasure in the healthy food alternatives Alma introduced me to, and my overall energy is so much better. My blood chemistries continue to improve and those improvements have garnered praise from my physician. I'm so grateful that I had the opportunity to work with her. My gratitude and whole-hearted endorsement goes to Alma!

I have gone to Chiayueh for a variety of ailments over the years - from anxiety to running injuries - and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is an extremely talented Reiki master and massage therapist who has devoted her life to making people feel better. Chiayueh combines her background in Eastern holistic healing with training in Western massage therapy to form a practice that centers around long-lasting treatment of the body and mind. Most importantly, she truly cares about each of her patients and pours her heart and soul into her work. Make an appointment with her - you won't be sorry!

    I had the fortune of meeting Joe three years ago and at the time I had some high expectations for my overall fitness growth. Joe ended up becoming my one stop shop due to his immense knowledge in wellness and fitness. Some areas I have used Joe's expertise - Strength, flexibility, nutrition and therapy. Joe incorporates all these elements into his teaching and he makes it pretty simple. For my personal growth I have used his guidance with gymnastic style body weight and Kettlebells. What I truly appreciate the most is attention to form and injury prevention. Of course, along the way I have had my share of injurys and have sought Joe for therapy and acupuncture!! I have never done acupuncture before and Joe has made me a believer. I'm grateful for his guidance and as I head into my 40's I can say I'm stronger and healthier overall than ever before in my life.

    Krista is the best. I'm a distance runner, and I was having pain in my left leg that was effecting my training. Working with Krista, we took a holistic approach and worked on my diet, stretching and running gait. I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm faster and so much more injury free, but also generally in much better health.

    Suzanne Abboud is an extremely kind, caring, knowledgeable and dedicated professional. Always interested in helping others live a holistic and healthy lifestyle. She is always ready with some words of help and encouragement to those in need. I have seen first hand the results of her successful holistic treatment of a cancer patient. I have also referred a friend, also a cancer survivor/patient, who was overly happy with the incredible homeopathic results she saw after meeting with Suzanne and implementing her suggestions that were specifically recommended for her individual disease. And this was without any of the dangerous risks of poisons and side effects of traditional modern day medicine. So far, she has had positive results from her monthly blood tests and only after 3 weeks! Suzanne also supplied her with vital and valuable information to keep her healing. We believe we are all blessed to have come to know Suzanne and by her teachings.

        I had a "frozen shoulder". After seeing a Chiropracter and a sports medicine Dr.,after x-rays and a cortisone shot I was only partly relieved. Then I had Cheryl work on me. The cortisone shot had greatly relieved my pain, but not mobility- after only 2 sessions with Cheryl I had full range of motion return. She made me believe in the Therapy part of "massage therapy". She was careful and thorough and professional. And I was helped enormously.

          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.
