"I went to see Tunisia Ali in a dark, hopeless place of misery. I suffer from cronic Fibromyalgia pain, depression, stress, and anxiety. I went there as a last resort and with a fair amount of skepticism. I almost left when I realized she didn't do massage, but I was curious, so I figured, what the heck, why not? She lightly touched me or didn't touch me at all sometimes. I am at a loss for words to explain what happened. Some things you can't express via language, when I try to say what it felt like, it doesn't sound right, and doesn't describe it properly. All I can say is that when I left, I wasn't in physical or emotional pain anymore. I woke up this morning and I still wasn't in much pain. I forgot to change my Fentanyl patch because I wasn't in excruciating pain. I feel lighter somehow. It's 2:15pm and I am now experiencing aching in my typical pain areas, but it's not the same debilitating pain where I'm terrified to move the wrong way. Things have happened at work today but I'm not stressed about it like I usually am. So, I don't understand it, and I'm not exactly sure what she did, (even though she did explain it to me) but, whatever she did ending up having a lasting positive impact on my mind and my body. Would I hire her again? Yes. Actually, I already did book another appointment with her & I'm going to bring my teenaged daughters to see her too. I hope this assists with your decision making process regarding choosing a Master Reiki healer."

"Sabine is truly "The Best". She combines compassion and knowledge to offer her customers unparalleled experiences in healing body, mind, and soul. Her ability to listen intently to her customers is a rare and most appreciated talent. I have been a customer for 3+ years and currently drive 1.5 hours one way just for the opportunity to experience her healing. None compare! I have used Sabine for massage therapy, Reiki, and distance Reiki, all with great success. Her gentle, yet deep healing touch helps bring relief to my physical aches and pains. Sabine's mastery of Reiki has allowed me to experience tremendous healing, learning and growth. The Reiki energy which flows, whether in person or during distance sessions, is extremely powerful and always "for highest and best good". Her thoughtful sharing and insights complete the Reiki experience in the same manner turning on a light instantly brightens a room. I have experienced numerous "ah-ha" moments. Relatives who have used Sabine for distance Reiki concur that they have experienced the same. Captivated by my personal experiences, and eager to learn more, I also became one of Sabine's Reiki I students. As a former teacher I fully recognize when an instructor is well prepared and knowledgeable. Sabine certainly is both. Her lesson plan is well thought out and presented, gently guiding her students on a journey from history to self confidence and "hands-on" practice in a loving, supportive environment. Thus, I conclude by repeating my opening statement, Sabine is "The Best!" Give her a try. I promise you won’t regret it."

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.
