I hurt my low back and left leg exercising. I had been to doctors, physical therapy and another massage therapist. I needed deep tissue massage. Sandy knew exactly what I needed and she fixed my low back/leg pain. Gone! Thank you Sandy!

Rebecca is the most caring and skilled massage therapist that I have had the pleasure to have been to. She is very accommodating and her pricing is right in line with her abilities. There are times her hands get so warm with her energy it's amazing.

Pat has been my massage therapist for several years. She consistently gives a deep, thorough, therapeutic massage with extra attention to problem areas. My daily activities and some structural problems cause discomfort and downright pain in specific locations. I hurt much less because of Pat's efforts. In fact, I usually remain pain-free for at least a week following my massage.

I have been a client of Sy's for over 5 years. He is the epitome of a true professional and I highly recommend him! He gives an amazing deep tissue massage but will lighten the touch at your request. I was in a car accident a few months ago, and Sy designed deep tissue massage therapy sessions for me so I wouln't have the need for pain meds as my own personal physicians group refuses to treat accident victims. Sy has been my saving grace! He's the best!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!

The best massage I’ve ever had. Soothing as well as therapeutic, deep muscle work. Therapist brings a sense of peace. Calming environment. Room temperature was perfect. Warm, just like I like it. I can’t relax if it is too cold. I highly recommend this therapist.

I worked at a Wellness Center in Punta Gorda for a number of years and treated myself to many one hour massages. I never felt 1/2 hour was enough. However, I recently had my first hour and a half session recently by Patricia of Oasis Massage and it was great. I specifically asked for a longer session of deep tissue massage because I had to be in a wheelchair in June and July of 2011, and have been stiff and having back, hip and knee problems ever since. It was great. Patricia was very gentle, yet firm. She pulled back when SHE sensed it may be a bit too uncomfortable. I just closed my eyes, listened to the soothing music and lost track of time. Great experience. I will definitely start having deep tissue massages from Patricia on a regular basis. Chris V

My work is different from other massage therapists' is that I spend a full 60 minutes hands on my clients bodies. Most massages are 55 minutes. I make house calls, I have found that it is more comfortable for clients to not have to leave their home to receive a massage, I provide everything nessicary to ensure my clients receive the most relaxing and therapeutic massage possible.

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.
