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.
From: Dr. Steven Bartz My background in medicine spans over 30 years. Based in hard sciences, my first job was as a respiratory therapist working primarily in critical care units and E.R.’s. My doctorate is in chiropractic. The concept of “Reiki” seemed rather fringe and suspect to me at first. Then I began to study this concept, I came to realize that this system is actually based on modern day application of quantum physics, meaning that all life is based on energy substrates. Reiki to my understanding is based on manipulating these energy fields in a manner somewhat similar to how I manipulate the joints to affect the neurological system. My skepticism was thoroughly addressed when out of desperation and suffering for several years with debilitating back pain, “Yes, the irony is not lost in that of a chiropractor with a bad back.” I sought the treatment of Reiki by Katherine McBride. I have to say I’m rather amazed that in only 3 sessions I experienced a 80% (at least) improvement in symptoms. Now, due to my own positive results, I refer my patients to her for therapy. She is now available to see and schedule appointments through my office and the feed-back I have received from these patients has been overwhelmingly positive. Sincerely, Dr. Steven Bartz D.C.
Amy is a wonderful acupuncturist and healer. She is very thoughtful in her approach and takes the time to get to know you and what you’re seeking. Her approach is very holistic, taking a range of factors into account to customize each experience. She has become a valued part of my life and now I can’t imagine life without her.
Justin gave me private tuition in New York. As a relative newbie to yoga and by no stretch of the imagination, still in my 20’s, I found the prospect of walking into a class quite terrifying! I was pretty nervous the first time he rocked up at my apartment at 7am, but really had no need to be. Justin is kind, caring, full of fun and brings a sense of lightness to his work. He gave me the confidence to carry on and to develop a great love for yoga! I also love the fact that Justin’s approach is completely holistic ... it’s not all about getting into that pose, but it incorporates breathing techniques, reiki and tools for meditation! He totally rocks ... so much so, that I signed up for his recent retreat in Hawaii - Paradise Found. It was a truly wonderful time, with a great group of yogis - all brought together through Justin! In brief he’s a rockstar and a beautiful person all at the same time!
Meghann is amazing! She knows every muscle and nerve in the body and the reasons for their troubles. Not only will she work with you on correcting muscular problems, she will give you simple home exercises to keep them from coming back. She truly take a holistic approach to wellness and healing. This is not just a back rub!
I've had Tara treat me several times for various reasons - sick with the flu, extreme muscle pain/ soreness, tweaked neck, sciatica pain, etc. She has used both acupuncture and cupping. My body responds extremely well to cupping and in times where I have had severe back or neck pain cupping along with an electric stem via acupuncture had me feeling like an improved person after coming off the table. Tara is very knowledgeable and passionate and will even educate you along the way as her goal is for you to achieve optimal health by gaining a proper balance in life. She has two great locations and will even do house calls. I highly recommend her!
I booked a Reiki Healing session with Sandra and I am so glad I did! Her professionalism, warmth and open energy makes you feel right at home. She picked up on a lot of things I had been dealing with, as well as a connection to a past life session I had months ago. I truly felt so much lighter after the healing and so carefree and deeply relaxed all day long! I can't wait to enjoy the continued sense of freedom, peace and being open to receiving! Thank you so much Sandra!
'Natara has been my guide to the ultraworld for years. Her caring and open way leads me to discover new and exciting things about myself and others. Her integrity and sense of quiet balance are the gifts which set her apart as a teacher, healer, and shaman in a workshop or large ceremony gathering. I look forward each year to my month-by-month reading, and have traveled to participate in her sound bath therapy and Reiki sessions. I especially recommend her "Shift" workshop which is like an unrolling of one big bounteous medicine bundle for everyone to find something (or everything) to enjoy. Thank you, 'Natara for your unwavering and bright light in this time of great and accelerating change.
I do not even know where to begin. Jessica is not only incredibly intelligent, but she has one of the kindest hearts. I started seeing Jessica because I was having many issues with acne, bloating, and weight loss. Stress was an added factor that was making my symptoms a lot worse. Jessica knew how to recommend specific suggestions in order for me to improve in that area. She provided thorough explanation behind her recommendations and spends a great amount of time getting to know you as a person. Having struggling with these problems for about 3-4 years, I have never felt so much support and willingness to do whatever it takes to get the body back in balance from a professional. At the beginning, I was feeling bloated constantly whether it was before, during, or after meals. I can say that I no longer and feeling that way and I have seen huge improvements within 1-2 months. No matter what you are struggling with or the kind of support you need, I am confident that Jessica will be able to help you the way she helped me. Not only is she an amazing nutritional therapist she is one of the best personal trainers. She gives you the confidence and motivation to be the BEST you.
I recently had 2 deep tissue massage sessions with Joel. I was experiencing neck and shoulder pain having been through a very stressful period. I felt so much better after the first massage and my pain had almost completely resolved after the second. The treatments were deeply relaxing and I felt that I could trust Joel. He is also a Reiki master and he was very intuitive about how I was feeling emotionally as well. I highly recommend Joel!
My private yoga session with Whitney was incredible. I have been doing yoga on and off for for 6 years now, and I have always paid attention to posture and alignment, but some of the micro-adjustments Whitney gave me blew me away. Poses I have become comfortable in over the years took on a whole new meaning. In poses where I normally feel very confident and powerful, Whitney guided me into very small adjustments, and in one of them as soon as I took the adjustment, tears started rolling down my face! It was so beautiful and so powerful. Whitney truly makes her yoga sessions a (w)holistic experience. Truly connecting mind, body, spirit, breath, movement - all parts of yoga. Her class was an exploration into deeper parts of my body and system, and I was so impressed and excited - particularly as someone who teacher meditation and breathwork! I can not recommend her enough. If you’ve never done a private yoga session, or never done a private yoga session with someone as in-tune, powerful, and knowledgable as Whitney, get ready to get your world rocked. She was so detailed, and adjusted the sequencing with ease to accommodate what my body needed in the moment. Afterward I felt centered, grounded, and empowered because of the connection I gained to parts of myself that have never been accessed. And, as an added bonus she takes the time to tune in to your body and energy centers in shavasana using shamanic healing techniques. I truly can’t say enough about how impactful this experience was. Thank you, Whitney!
Damaris got me started in yoga, and in many ways a more holistic approach to my life...I truly appreciate that. You’ll enjoy the benefits of her continual search for inspiration and truth. She really enjoys watching her students bloom.

For people, a reiki session can be a relaxing experience that can restore the natural flow of healing energy, or "chi" that all healthy bodies use to heal themselves.

Naturopathic medicine is a system of health care that focuses on the use of natural therapeutics to promote health and address the root causes of illness and imbalance, rather than covering up symptoms. This distinctive field of medicine has a primary focus on the prevention of chronic disease to allow the healing power of nature transform the body and mind towards greater health and vitality. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) seek to restore and maintain optimum health in their patients by emphasizing nature's inherent self-healing processes via a combination of conventional and holistic fields of medicine, which in turn leads to an integrative and individualized, therapeutic approach. In her office, Dr. Galina sees a wide range of health concerns ranging from acute to chronic. She individualizes her approach for each patient and utilizes a holistic approach while enabling the patient to play an active role in their care. The path to healing is achieved by a combination of supplementation, nutrition, counseling and lifestyle recommendations to enhance the mind-body connection. Although Dr. Galina is trained in general medicine and cares for people of all ages and for many conditions, her special interests include counseling, weight loss, women's health, holistic dermatology and pediatrics.
My job is to help people who have chronic pain or increase immunity and maintain the general health physically and mentally with the use of acupuncture, moxa, and herbs. I also was an RN before I studied eastern medicine. I can make people happy without discomfort.
I became active in the holistic health care field when I had a personal health care crises many years ago. Fortunately, I met some amazing people in the holistic field who helped me heal and move forward. Feeling transformed and renewed from this wonderful experience, I have tried my best to pay it forward. My career began 13 years ago in the holistic health care field. Presently, I am primarily a bodywork and energy therapist. The main modalites that I have studied allow me to connect with your physical body via therapeutic massage (shiatsu, Thai, Swedish, sports, deep tissue, and prenatal). In addition, I connect with the mind and energetic body through Reiki (Japanese healing and stress reduction technique), guided imagery, meditation, and pranic healing. I have my CAMTC license, city of Long Beach license, and I am a hypnotherapist who is certified by the International Hypnosis Federation. I partner with my clients to find what's the best modality or combination of modalities fits with them. According to Maya Angelou, "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
We offer medical services specifically tailored to meet each patient's individual needs. Nutritional, herbal, homeopathic and dietary therapies are integrated into our approach to health care, so that the full benefits of prevention, natural therapies and treatment of symptoms are naturally achieved. Services offered include acupressure, acupuncture, cupping, ear seeding, dietary therapy, herbal medicine, moxibustion, preventive care and tui na. In the Western world, Chinese medicine is called alternative, complement, comprehensive, holistic and natural medicine. Chinese medicine is different from Western medicine in terminology, treatment methods and results. Instead of using an artificial drug to replace or mimic the function of some organ or suppress certain chemicals to cover the symptoms of a disease, Chinese medicine enlists the body's own defenses to reverse underlying pathological conditions and restore the body to normal function and harmony. Acupuncture and medical herbs heal diseases rather than just treating the symptoms. Our goal is to heal any disease before it is too late. Acupuncture and herbal medicine have been practiced in China over thousands of years. We combine Chinese and Western medical knowledge together to treat diseases. No matter what disease you are diagnosed with, acupuncture and herbal medicine can be used as your main treatment method.
The services I offer are as follows: * Acupuncture (head, body and ear) * Chinese herbal medicine * Cupping * Gua sha * Moxibustion * Electroacupuncture * Qi gong
