I have been weight lifting with Michael one-on-one, three times a week for over a year now and can truly say that he is head and shoulders above all other trainers in the Richmond area. I have worked with several trainers around town and have also participated in some of the more popular gym and group fitness classes (bootcamps & Crossfit). Michael takes a holistic approach to fitness and not only pushes you beyond your own perceived limits, but will help you to examine all aspects of your lifestyle to identify any obstacles and/or potential de-railers. At the onset of my training with Michael, my goal was to help make my workout more well-rounded by adding weight lifting to my mostly cardio workout. Now, I'm not only lifting weights above what I thought was do-able for my middle-aged, female body, but exceeding those weights with a safe and steady progression. I always feel confident in his abilities to help me to lift safely and effectively. I recommend Michael to anyone who is serious about their fitness and ready to make a positive change to their workout routine.

The yoga sessions that I have done with Rebecca have been great! She has been leading me in "Broga," which is a great total body workout and a more holistic exercise than the jogging and weightlifting I am accustom to. She's very easy to work with and excellent at motivating and encouraging. I can tell that Rebecca is passionate and committed to helping her clients have the best health experience possible to improve their quality of life. I have only positive things to say.

Angela and I are classmates at institute of integrative nutrition. We have worked together a couple times, and she has never fails to impress me with her amazing coaching skills ! Angela not only has some the best health coaching and holistic nutrition training but she has an intrinsic talent of helping people heal themselves by themselves. She has a vibe about her that makes you feel in trust, you can truly open up to her and let your body speak. As practice we have coached each other and every single time we speak, I am reminded that EVERYONE, everyone needs a Heath coach. One conversation can your life . I strongly recommend her ! - Diana Cris Ramirez

She's a warm and personable woman who treated me with both Reiki and massage. Immediately upon having her hands above me, I felt the energy emanations. She brought balance to my chakras (and was very intuitive about the state of my chakras - actually seeing them in terms of color). The massage seemed to be not just a massage, but an intuitively directed one. Afterwards, all my senses became more acute, I felt a lightness of being, and I've felt calmer and happier since. I plan on making this a weekly event - I believe that I will get gradually healthier both mentally and physically with these treatments. Her prices are reasonable.

So pleased to find Jennifer, a genuine, caring acupuncturist who patiently listened to ALL of my past traumas so that the most thorough healing could be set in motion. By truly seeking the source and underlying layers of my pain, she approached my situation with sensitivity and incredible understanding. Her practice is truly holistic. Looking forward to my next session this week!

I have been seeing Maya for over 2 years. She has helped me with many items that has been going on in my life. We have worked together for healing. Not only in my personal life, but with any surgeries I might have coming up. She has helped me move on with the loss of my husband, and has helped him move on as well. I am very impressed with the work Maya does. She continues to surprise me with what she know about how I am feeling. Knows if I am not feeling good, if I haven't been eating right, and not drinking the right thing. I always feel so much better when we are done with our session. I have been balanced, healed and on the road to greater thing.

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.
