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.
I visited Steve before my surgery for weight control because my doctor said I had a higher risk of complications following surgery due to my weight. I had been on and off programs for many years without much change. We had two sessions at his office before the surgery. He was compassionate, extremely dedicated, and incredibly knowledgeable about healthcare and hypnosis. It was like having a personal advocate. He visited me after the surgery. I credit him with helping me get from a very dark and scary place to the point where I can now walk a few steps now. I did not know prior to my hospital stay that he had been an Occupational Therapist. He showed me how to do thigh squeezes, ankle pumps, and other exercises to increase my strength and mobility to my knee. He encouraged me to take my temperature every day and watch my knee for swelling, redness or draining. My inactivity and pain medicine combined caused another problem. With my self-hypnosis, I was able to lessen my pain and decrease my pain medicine. I started to drink more water, eat foods with plenty of fiber and increase my activity. I cannot recommend this therapist high enough. My only criticism would be that he does not take insurance. But you get what you pay for and this is unquestionably the best care money can buy.
Julie, my Reiki practitioner, provided a safe and comfortable environment where I was able to receive the healing energies which released tension from my neck and lower back.

Michael Sassack, LAc, is a board certified, licensed acupuncturist serving the northwest suburbs of Chicago. He provides one-on-one full-body acupuncture treatments for $40 per session, with a reduced rate for children and adolescents. Michael first became interested in holistic health while studying medicine in China. While visiting rural communities that utilize acupuncture in everyday medicine, he observed first-hand its astounding effects on pain management and general well-being. Acupuncture restores balance to the body's natural energy (qi) and can be used to treat a wide variety of symptoms, including fertility and women's health issues; headaches and migraines; nerve pain; insomnia; bacterial or viral infections; anxiety and depression; and digestive challenges. While well trained and comfortable treating any of these issues, Michael's specialties are muscle and joint pain, asthma, and seasonal allergies.

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 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!
