Alex is an amazing healer! She uses advanced massage techniques to softly, yet effectively relieve pain and stress. Her back ground in physical therapy and education in holistic healing are the perfect combination for soothing and healing therapeutic massages. I use her services on a regular basis and would recommend you do too!

I have to say that it was my first time trying acupuncture, so I was a bit skeptical about it. One morning I woke up with my neck stiff and my wife advised me to try something different than traditional medicine. I have visited Dr. Moshkovich twice. Right after the first visit I felt a lot better, and the pain was gone. I found the treatment very effective. The needling technique and bedside manner of Dr. Moshkovich is very gentle. She is patient and her approach to the problem is comprehensive and thoughtful. I highly recommend acupuncture at Nirvana Naturopathics.

I have been receiving treatments from Kim since early summer 2014. First on weekly basis, now bi-weekly. The results are outstanding! My first problem was silent acid reflex. Instead of doctor's recommended acid proton pump inhibitors (which may relief the symptoms but may cause more acid production), I turned to Kim and with acupuncture and herbs got rid of bloating and other related symptoms. One particular case stands out: I got to my appointment with Kim in terrible pain and bloating, hardly able to move... An hour later I jumped off the table completely deflated and pain free! Kim does her diagnostic at the beginning of each treatment and always suggests the treatment that is most needed that day. Also, she takes time to explain things and educate. Thanks Kim! I'm so glad I met you! Yura J.

I had lower back pain and neck pain on and off for nearly 20 years. I was at the point where I could not exercise for about a month because of the discomfort. I couldn't even stretch because I was so locked up. I was told by a friend of this Anatoliy Pak guy over at the Healing Arts of Oriental Medicine in Deerfield. He said that Anatoliy helped him alleviate his lower back pain with acupuncture. I knew absolutely nothing about acupuncture, other than it had been around for a long period of time and had stood the test of time in healing people of their ailments. I figured I had nothing to lose so I tried it. It was one of the best decisions I made as within a few weeks, I was back to exercising and stretching. My body wasn't locked up anymore. As a result, I was able to feel better about myself being pain free. I didn't have pain anymore in my lower back or my neck. Anatoliy provides a welcoming and peaceful environment at the Healing Arts of Oriental Medicine. He is a real pro and top of the line in his field. Acupuncture has been able to stimulate my body's healing process over the last three years. It also gives me energy that I didn't have before I started going to Anatoliy for acupuncture. Mike

OMG. Mike is incredible. Today he worked on all my scars to alleviate the pain that I have been living with for many many years. I am hooked and will definitely be his regular for I had a horrible accident in January and insist on getting rid of acute pain but stop taking pain medicine as well and no longer receive shots to the back and knee. The shots are more painful then the pain and it's basically a temporary band aid. Mike has a completely and totally non evasive procedure that he uses and you will walk out of his office pain free and euphoric. Get your appointment asap folks

My experience with Lymphatic Drainage and Healing Touch performed by Dr. Sylvia Hood Washington I believe had a positive effect on reducing inflammation in my body. The few days after therapy I noticed less aches and pain in my muscles & joints. I hold a lot of stress related tension in my muscles, so it was great to have some relief. During the therapy Dr. Sylvia kept me informed with what she was doing and why she was doing it. I liked how she integrated different modalities along with the lymphatic draining. She incorporated some yoga stretching and breathing as well as healing touch techniques. On top of relieving some of my inflammatory muscle and joint pain, Dr.Sylvia found an inflamed lymph node under my arm. It was likely inflamed because I was feeling on the verge of a virus. She was able to drain the lymph node and we could no longer feel an inflamed lump under my arm. I believe this procedure helped me to beat the virus that never transpired. In addition to being a Certified Lymphatic Therapist, Dr. Sylvia has vast knowledge and expertise in the medical field as an Environmental Epidemiologist and Public Health Professional. She has the ability to treat a person holistically while helping them discover how their environment may be affecting their health issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Sylvia Hood Washington as a Nautropathic Doctor for Lymphatic Wellness.

Kathleen is an excellent practitioner who will take thorough time to listen to you, your reasons for seeking acupuncture, and will carefully asses the best course of treatment. She is very knowledgeable not only with Chinese medicine but traditional western medicine as well. The issues I came to see her for were resolved, and it is great to be feeling well again. She also offered relevant information which she forwarded along to me as well as some very helpful suggestions for supplements that would be beneficial. She is very gentle with the acupuncture insertion and my treatments always felt calm and relaxing. I would recommend her highly.

Rita is one of the most influential people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Her style of healing is unlike anything I've ever experienced. My mind and body are in such a better state because of her work. The massage combined with working through that week's issues or triumphs is something I consistently look forward to. The environment is incredibly welcoming and calm. The sweet aroma and soft music allow my ever-running mind to relax. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking to have an overall better well-being. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else!

Amadea is a warm and knowledgeable professional, whom I would absolutely recommend to anyone seeking acupuncture. She has always shown compassion and expertise in her practice, and I thoroughly enjoy my experience at each treatment. Acupuncture has definitely helped me with a range of issues and as an alternative to Western medicine, I have found it extremely helpful.

I loved working with Jennifer. I went to her for fertility treatment and unbeknownst to me, I was already pregnant! My progesterone levels were quite low though so through acupuncture and Chinese herbs I have kept them stable. She really listened and I felt like we addressed more than my one issue. I wish I could continue going to here but unfortunately we have moved out of state. She has offered continued support anyway. I can't express how grateful I am for her help and expertise!

Positive, caring, connectedness, intuitive, and being an empathetic listener are all words I use to describe Ms. Amanda Mitchell. I had the opportunity to take part in several of Amanda’s training workshops and was blown away by her overall character and expertise. She seemed to know exactly how far to push, how much to pull back, and how to creatively get you to open up because you wanted to, not because you had to. I was able to walk away with “powerful food for thought” tools and important techniques that aided me in learning how to balance my personal and professional life in a way that was warm, comfortable and more importantly doable!!!!!!! I can honestly say I feel empowered with what Amanda has so openly and graciously given me.

Dr. Rosie's office is beautiful and comfortable, and she has countless tools which she uses to provide thorough, effective treatments. In theory, any licensed acupuncturist is sufficiently knowledgeable and qualified to practice, but what sets Rosie apart is her individuality. “Nonjudgmental” is the first quality I realized about this oncology-related specialist. Maybe it’s her personal experience that makes Dr. Rosie suitable for this concentration, or maybe it’s because she genuinely cares about individuals that she is able to offer a caring and safe environment. I don’t think it hurts that she is fluent in Mandarin and did an internship in Beijing where she practiced the medicine in its birthplace… What I do know is that we are fortunate to have a dedicated, gentle yet assertive, budding practitioner who we can turn to for many years to come.

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.   

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.

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.
