I contacted Sean because I had a problem with my energy that was hindering my connection to spirits as well as making energy work more difficult for me. I have always found it difficult to feel energy and I thought it was just that some people find it easier than others and thought nothing more of it. Recently I was made aware of this blocking energy and found Sean via the internet. I had one remote session with Sean via Skype and my problem was resolved. Sean conducted a past life regression and we discovered that a traumatic past life had caused my current energetic condition and Sean enabled me to heal this issue during the session without the need for further remedial work. I am still amazed that this issue was so quickly resolved and Sean's session was my first past life regression therapy. I was extremely pleased with Sean's guidance and results and I have no hesitation in recommending him to others who are considering contacting him for assistance. Neil G, Perth, Western Australia

Working with Jessa has been a great experience. I have seen her about 5 or 6 times now, and her massage therapy has been very helpful for my backpain. I am impressed with her techniques and her ability to target specific treatment modalities. She pays attention to my specific needs, tailoring her technique accordingly. She also spends time before sessions with diagnosis (i.e. stretching to see where my muscle limitations are) and then using that info to customize the massage. Also, she is friendly and sweet to deal with. Definitely recommend!

Lilah is a very attentive massage therapist. She listens closely to your answers when asking about areas that need attention. She also retains information of areas that might be problematic due to injury or chronic pain and is adept at working around such areas. Her knowledge base of techniques in massage therapy that can be used to address your issues has both breadth and depth. Her personality is nurturing and sweet without being saccharin making it easy to converse. She solicits feedback in order to better learn your body needs. Overall she's one of the best massage therapists I've had work on me.

Jacquie has helped me make breakthroughs and release some issues that have lingered for years despite various modalities of therapy. It's also empowering work as she teaches me tools along the way. You'll need to be clear about what you want to heal though in order to experience the power of the work.

Eric was great, he listened to what I need to be done or worked on. I did the one hour deep tissue massage, I in pain everywhere but the most complaint I had at the moment was my left leg. He worked on my left leg, foot, calf and thigh. I am sore right now but I know it will get better, Rome is not built in a day. It is too bad he did not get a chance to work on the rest of what I need but I am fine with that. I am going for two hours and hopefully it will be enough to cover the rest of my issues. Eric is a professional, passionate in his craft, personable and knows what he is doing. His office/studio is clean and there is plenty of parking outside. I look forward to the next appointment and the road to healing. Just tell Eric what you need and he can better advise you of the course of action, cash (with ID) or check only. Weekend hours available and he is accommodating. Even though he was only able to work on one leg at that time it was worth the visit, I plan to be a regular; especially for maintenance.

Andri really does give the word 'therapy' a whole new meaning. She creates a safe environment whereby issues are addressed to their core. She has a fantastic ability to identify with her clients issues and guides them to release and resolve anything that might trouble them. She is highly recommended and is considered by my self a 'new age' therapist that finds new and innovative ways to help in accordance with the core problem and circumstances of each person. 5 STAR

He's smart, kind, skilled, and his prices are reasonable. Chris may have saved me from serious injury, or at least major discomfort (I had TMJ from the stress I had during my exams in grad school). Chris seems really focused on healing and not into the super-bourgeois, frilly kind of massage: he's practical and amazing. His style was perfect for me. I've received all kinds of massage therapy and I can't endorse Chris more!

Ms. Franco has been doing therapeutic body work on me for many years and clearly is my therapist of choice. The biggest reasons I choose to have her work on me are that she is very caring and is aware of my body's needs through her delightful sensitivity and intuition. She seems to sense when and where to apply additional focus. She is expert in many massage disciplines. I have undergone several surgeries, including total knee replacement and open heart surgery. Her caring hands have worked on me for at least 8 years. I look forward to the next time/.

About

Description I am a more than 20-year experienced therapeutic massage and bodywork specialist. Practicing in spas and having a private clientele since 1996, I've created a truly unique style, intuitively utilizing a large collection of acquired modalities, allowing you to feel more reconnected to your own body while experiencing deep relaxation. I draw upon the elements of Swedish and Esalen massage, deep tissue, trigger point, shiatsu, craniosacral, lomi lomi, Reiki and polarity therapies. This approach, with both light and medium-to-deep pressure, alleviates stored stresses, tensions, and pain held in the physical body while also relaxing and soothing the emotional and spiritual being. Practicing from a compassionate space and keeping present awareness with the breath and the body's needs, I create a safe, relaxing, and peaceful healing experience for all my clients.

My specialties are chronic and acute myoskeletal pain, muscular pain due to structural imbalances, adhesion, nerve entrapment, hyper tonic muscle groups due to repetitive or habitual motion, and post surgery issues or injuries. My clients love that I teach them how to be proactive with their therapy sessions as we assess their body at a glance and specific issues they have. Whether it be sports, job, or injury related. I use my advanced skills and modalities from mobilization techniques to PNF stretching, to myofacial release, and not to mention trigger point and deep tissue work with neuromuscular movement, that is specific to a client's issues.

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.
