Michelle is a warm and inviting person who made me feel comfortable very quickly. She has been a great mentor and helped me overcome many obstacles in the aftermath of a serious life event I experienced. I felt I could be me without any concern for fear of how she may react. I have done traditional therapy but have preferred her holistic approach to combining therapy with a goal oriented approach to solving problems one may be experiencing. I have been able to get to a much better place in my life thanks to her support and the perspective she helps me obtain through self reflection. She encourages you just enough to help you push past your self-set limits without ever feeling like she is pushing you past your boundaries. Somehow, I always get to the realization I need on my own terms but with the help of her encouragement. I love her approach and feel that her respectful manner along with her warm, understanding attitude creates a space for one to really get down to one's core and find one's self in the process. She has truly been a gift to my life.

Kyle braved 112 degree temps, car fires & a stalled train to make a house call to provide much needed therapy for me. I had severe neck pain & stiffness despite weekly Chiropractic visits. Kyle was able to relieve my pain, restore range of motion & not only that brought my husband in & taught him simple stretches he could do to help. After that he had an impromptu request by me to help work on my husband. My husband is a disabled Veteran and has had severe head, neck & shoulder pain for years. Kyle relieved pain my husband said he didn’t even know was there it had been so chronic. Not only that he was able to restore range of motion that I’ve never seen in my husband before! Kyle was a blessing to have work on us. He is an honest to God, wonderful Therapist.

I had my first session with Lisa yesterday, and I will DEFINITELY be having her back! Over the years, I have had many different massage therapists, so I can tell right away if someone knows what they are doing--and Lisa certainly does! I have a couple of different physical issues which cause me a great deal of discomfort, and she knew exactly what to do to alleviate my pain. She always made sure I was comfortable, and that the amount of pressure she was using was effective. I had never had a massage therapist come to my home, so wasn't sure what to expect. Lisa immediately made me feel at ease with her warm personality, and after asking about any of my physical issues, preferences, etc. she explained the process to me, stepped out while I got comfortable and then put relaxing music on, and it was just like being in a spa-only better!! This isn't just a job to Lisa-she loves being able to help people feel better! She is very good at what she does, and I felt better as soon as she started working on me! (And felt even better when I woke up this morning!) Her prices are very reasonable, and the convenience of having her come to my home was a huge plus for me! There's nothing worse than getting a great massage, and then getting in your car and running errands on your way home instead of enjoying the benefits of the massage! I strongly encourage anyone who is looking for an excellent massage therapy experience in the comfort of their own home to call Lisa!! I will definitely be having her back on a regular basis! If you could give more than 5 stars for a review-Lisa would get 10 from me!

I fell asleep during such a calming session and to my surprise for the first time in years, I woke up after my session was over without any pain whatsoever. Also, I felt more at peace and calmer than I have in ages. I also felt as if I was as light as a feather, floating instead of being weighed down by depression, heartache, stress, sorrow, worry, and gravity. I've already schedule a my next reiki therapy session. I would definitely recommend Reiki Earth Mother to EVERYONE who has been out through the worst and desperately needs physical l, mental, and emotional healing, and therapy. She said kind and very welcoming. I'm glad I went with my intuition and chose to go see her instead of anyone else! After just 1 session I feel ive healed more with Reiki, than I have with more than a year of weeekly physical therapy & daily therapy from neurologists!! Thank you Reiki Earth Mother! I'm coming back for more healing and hopefully I'll be able to take your life coaching and classes on Reiki as well!! I love what you do!!

I was under a lot of stress and needed a good therapy. I went online and checked with Tanisha and booked an appointment immediately. I must tell you, this place is heaven. The ambiance was very relaxing, we had an in-depth discussion about my requirement and the massage was 10/10. she was right on target, targeting the right points which made my pain and stress go away. Definitely I will be going again.

Im very pleased with the services provided. My leg was so sore that I was limping around all day and was worried that I was injuryed. Soulful massage therapy further informed me on my condition and helped me work out the kinks. Happy to say I left with better functionality of my leg, and also got rid of the lower back pain I was having.

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)

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.   

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.

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.
