It has been well over a year since I met Dorothy, and I'm so grateful that I did. I was in a dire situation where I had serious health issues that for some reason couldn't be detected by any tests doctors would give me. When my family turned away from me for lack of evidence of illness, I took it upon myself to turn towards alternative medicine and heal something that I knew I had. Very soon after this low, low point in my life, I came across Dorothy and all her magic. She treated me like family and has always been such a generous person with me. I had always felt I was a hassle or a shame in my family, but Dorothy's compassion is out of the roof and she has been patient with me despite my downfalls and short-comings, and that is something that has helped me slowly but surely improve to where I am today, to a great extent. I went at this energy work and reiki stuff blindly at first. I didn't know what to expect but at the time I was willing to do anything and I felt I was at the right place at the right time. And let me tell you, it works. I FELT things move and change around in my body. There WAS a difference between when I came in and when I left. I still remember. My digestive tract had definitely improved. And I felt the weight come off me after talking through the issues that I had experienced. It was amazing. And it's really something that you have to experience for yourself, and who better to experience it than with the best: Dorothy. This woman is the real deal. I took her reiki class too, and I learned about things I didn't even know I was capable of until I put it into action. And now I do energy work on my friends or even myself every now and then, and I find that what I usually feel energetically in someone else is pretty accurate! Dorothy also provides you with a TON of resources to look over and it seems like a lot a first but if you be patient and take it one document at a time, you will find that it is the most useful thing ever! And you can always call her when you have any questions, she will not turn you away. She has really helped me beyond what I initially had thought was capable. Dorothy is just magnificent. Honestly, if your sitting here reading reviews wondering if you should go for it or not, please do. You can usually tell when a person is serious about their work, and from the moment I started working with her, I did not doubt her one bit.

I needed a personal trainer to come to my home and help me get back on a work-out routine. Going to school on the evenings and being a stay at home mom made it difficult to dedicate time to work-out. Pamela came to my home 2x a week for 8 weeks and motivated me to push myself for 30-min sessions. That commitment jump-started my new exercise routine which I have incorporated into my busy lifestyle. She has a firm, yet sweet approach to motivate you which is a great combination to have especially when you want to give up on the last rep! She also provides weight-training equipment such as yoga mat, weights and medicine ball. At the end of the 8 weeks, I reduced my BMI!

Life-changing. I've had chronic migraines for as long as I can remember, and with Aaron's help, they have decreased almost completely. Aaron focuses on holistic nutrition, which is such a welcome change from most doctors and pharmacists I have spoken to about the same issue, and truly listens to his patients. With a simple vitamin supplement and small dietary change, my condition has improved incredibly. His recommendations are simple, spot-on, and effective. Aaron also followed up multiple times, which is extremely appreciated.

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!

It has been a pleasure receiving acupuncture treatment from Veronica. At first, I had several questions about my experience and she took a time thoroughly explaining accupunture points, the procedure reccomendation, and guided me along the procedure. Veronica is welcoming, gentle, professional, knowledgeble, and made me feel comfortable along the process. I was treated for anxiety, stress, and mensturation. After several procedures I notice an increase in my energy level and cramping had lessened. I continue to keep in touch and follow up with my procedure. Therefore, I reccomend Veronica as an accupunturist!!

    Olivia is such a bundle of positive energy and light! Her optimistic outlook on life is truly engaging, genuine and rare to find in Los Angeles. Olivia helped guide me to a healthy path after a 10+ year struggle with a diagnosed gluten allergy. With her help in nutrition, I've never felt better and healthier. Olivia is extremely intelligent, intuitive, well traveled and a gifted listener. She has grown to be a very close friend and confidant, helping me lessen my anxiety in other areas of my life including my fear of flying and trust issues in relationships. Olivia is truly a remarkable human being and has the potential to touch and heal every person she meets. I highly recommend seeing her!

    DR. John Barrett has improved my quality of life greatly! I have been suffering with chronic migraines for years and I have seen a number of specialists. I have been seeing Dr. Barrett for about three months now and the migraines not only have decreased significantly in severity but have decreased in frequency. I am so thankful for the opportunity to live my life without the fear of a spontaneous migraine. The office is always clean and Dr. Barrett's office staff is so kind and helpful. I have a great experience every time I come in for an appointment. I recommend Dr. Barrett highly to anyone who would like to try an alternative to pain medications and other methods.

    About

    Dr. Gu is a Chinese Medical Doctor with strong medical training backgrounds. She has more than twenty years of practical experience in both U.S., China, and Japan. Through Dr. Gu's abundant clinical experience, she has researched and designed a revolutionary needling technique that, quite simply, is administrated with the absence of any pain or other discomfort. Literally, there are often instances where the patient is totally unaware that any needle has been inserted. Subsequently, Dr. Gu has been labeled with the moniker "Magic Hand". This "No-Pain" technique is facilitated through the utilization of several simple advancements: The disposable needle is sheathed within a tube that affords a steadier, more expeditious insertion. The needle literally penetrates the skin at a speed too great to cause pain to the patient. Following the needle insertions, a magnetic heat therapy is used to relax the patient's muscles and eliminate any feeling of discomfort. Finally, a multi-purpose health device is used to reduce the number of needles previously required obtaining the desired therapeutic results.

    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.   

    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.

    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.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
