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

An excellent session is an understatement for Monique brushes on all aspects of a massage from creating the ambiance to knowing exactly how to work every muscle in the body. I train everyday and after her session I can feel my body is rujuvanated and back to its fullest potential especially taking away the spasm and stress. I also felt more relaxed and energetic after the therapy! Would highly recommend Monique’s perfection!

Following a car accident two years ago, I suffer with acute pain in my upper spine daily - sometimes the pain is so disabling I have been unable to work. I have tried many forms of treatment and therapy to reduce the injury/pain and have occasionally found temporary relief - but ultimately I still always had some degree of pain and within a few hours the agony would be back. Then I found Chris. After my first session with Chris I was completely pain free for the first time in two years. I repeat - completely pain free. And the days following were like being reborn again. I felt energized, invigorated and joyful. My whole system was running on empty because all my energy had been invested in dealing with pain 24/7. Suddenly, I was completely in tune with body again and could run, skip and play like I did years ago. Chris is not just a masseuse - he is a total body therapist, using many different forms of massage and physical therapy designed for each of his clients individual needs. He is a total professional and an impeccable gentleman. I highly recommend him and feel sure that with continued treatments I will be able to live my life again to the full. I feel blessed to have found someone with such skills, instinct and talent. Extraordinary and amazing in the true meaning of the words. Thank you Chris.

Allan saved me from severe pain yesterday. Not only was he able to accommodate a last minute appointment, he was also an excellent massage therapist. His background in physical therapy sets him apart from other massage therapists. He also seems to care about his clients and want to make sure they feel better.

I had a great experience with my service. I was experience a lot of back pain due to lots of stress. My therapist knew what I needed to relieve the pain and it helped a lot after an hour of massage therapy. He was communicative and responsive every step of the way- from the initiation, time of arrival and during the process. I would recommend Asatur for all massage therapy needs, to my friends and community.

Functionality! Having worked with Kz (I should get copyrights on that name since I started using it with her, what, 6 years ago?!! In all seriousness, Kz does what she does with such intuitive friendliness and grace that I sometimes forget I'm getting a massage as well. I'm a manic painter who will do hours/days painting and be an aching sore mess afterward. All these years later I ty not to take it for granted that I leave every session having had a FANTASTIC MASSAGE. I am not just refreshed, but invigorated; I'm in tune with my body, my feelings, and my muse. I've also come to know that I spent some very real time with a real, loving woman who listens without judgment, offers sage advice when appropriate and for that time we share together it is only us. Kz is truly empathic! I honestly feel she has helped me in so many ways beyond the therapy of her physical massage. The therapy of her being: being completely with me and working through my physical, mental, spiritual, psychic ( I hadn't been that open to metaphysical concepts before) and artistic knots (now knowing they are all connected) is something I cannot put a value upon. If Kz was not such a great mom, wife and human--she would be a superstar. She should be a superstar! She is as good as it gets. I'm thankful for our sessions, but I'm so blessed to call her friend!

I have experienced several sessions so far. Every time it has been incredibly professional, incredibly profound, and incredibly helpful. The best part about this form of healing is knowing that it's my higher self taking care of what I'm able to accept in that moment and having a trained facilitator only validates the experiences I have. This form of healing satisfies me so much I no longer feel the need to do other methods. But that is just me and my preferences. I like how clear this feels, how balanced this feels, and how loving this feels. -Erin

Jeremy is a highly skilled massage therapist. He makes a calming atmosphere and engages in pleasant conversation while doing the massage. Most importantly he is able to “fix” muscular problems in the body. I have gone to him unable to move my neck and after one massage I had regained 90% of my mobility and 100% after a nights nest. He has saved me from taking time off from work and from using pain medicine. Jeremy is the real deal when it comes to massage therapy.

I feel so much better today because of Lisa! (Cloud (Therapeutic Massage) I had not had a massage in a while, and I was really stiff and hurting with muscle spasms. Lisa arrived on time, set up and got right to work. She knew what spots to hit and took care of them. I highly recommend her services. I am glad I found her! I look forward to my next session.

Before entering therapy with Flo Lawrence I had experienced acupuncture and massage as pleasant but temporary efforts towards health and bodily comfort. Under Flo's skilled and professional care I have experienced a lasting sense of well being due to her understanding that healing is not accomplished when only one part of the body receives attention. Her strong beliefs in the powerful healing potential of the natural world, her generous loving spirit, her profound knowledge of anatomy, and her precise focus on me as a whole person has re-energized my life. As her manipulations of my body began to ease pain and stiffness, the totality of her spirit has taught me the inseparability of my pain from my heart and mind. With pain minimized, my senses are open again to the energy of life; with that openness pain retreats even further. Flo's touch is sure, her spirit is a balm, and her attention to me as an individual is indispensable. The hours spent with Flo have given me a healthier body and made me a better person and unified my powers to face each day with hope and joy. Bonnie Siebert

About

I offer the 50-minute miracle. People want me to explain all the time what I offer. They hear good things about me. They are motivated and want to give it a try, but for me, it's the hardest thing to explain. There are all these modalities I can draw from, but they really don't define my work. I know I have become a good listener! A listener to the subtle energies that create disturbances, raise roadblocks and barriers -- the emotions that flood our bodies and get stuck. Everyone is dealing with different things and issues, and everyone tightens up in their own unique way. My bodywork and energy release follow the patterns of the individual and clear and release blockages, stuck emotions, and tightness in the muscles. They align the body physically and energetically and recharge drained and exhausted areas. Most people do agree with one thing and have expressed their sessions as 'the 50-minute miracle.' So, I am providing 50-minute miracles -- one at a time and completely unique to each person.

Very few provide the combination of skilled training and sensitive firm touch that makes this a memorable experience. Not just another "massage guy" . I combine excellent deep tissue style work, Russian sports massage, and coordinated stretching done on a heated table for neck/back pain, injury rehab, sports recovery, and relaxation.

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.
