First, as I was trained as a medical doctor, let me say that I have always been aware that there are dimensions of healing that are not bound by traditional western medicine. In my experience with Eric Tackeff, he was professional, courteous, and seemed centered and focused in the session. I liked the setting of his office. I don't remember how long the session was; time seems irrelevant in that context. In experiencing the healing with Eric, he emanated what felt, with my eyes closed, like a penetrating light. My mind became quiet, and I felt washed by waves of energy. I became relaxed, with a deep sense of receiving. After the session, I felt subtle yet durable effects. In writing this, I can again evoke the experience, as if Eric showed me where a resource was as it flowed through him. Those who come expecting a specific prescription or instruction may be surprised, for the healing is not of the prescriptive kind. It draws from deeper sources, and I recommend him to anyone seeking to open to those sources as a path to wholeness.

I met Caroline Ruderman in Hudson, NY. I am always looking for ways to take care of myself without the use of meds or doctors. Holistic healing is for me! My first Reiki session was with Caroline and it was amazing. I made one more visit to her, and then asked if she would teach me. My daughter and I took Reiki 1 and our Masters class with her and again, got so much out of it! She is truly dedicated to this spiritual life she lives. Would recommend her to anyone who wants to experience this type of healing, or those who want to become a practitioner.

I work with Theresa Grisanti at the Abundant Wellness Center and can attest that her dedication to helping her clients is exceptional. I have also had first hand experience with her Energy Medicine and found it to have long lasting beneficial results. With her commitment to Energy Medicine, she has built a thriving practice in a very short period of time.

I have had many Reiki treatments with Roberta over the past 15 years. She has taught me self-love,acceptance of myself and others and to always think of what my higher self needs. I have also attended many meditation classes she has held. The soft music, the lit candles and her soft loving voice add so much to the experience. I highly recommend her unique power of healing.

Gigi is a very caring individual. She listens with empathy and that in itself is holistic. However, she helps you be aware of your power in the present. I left her session feeling "wow, I know things were bad in the past, but that is the past....lets move forward. I am amazing".

Those who have not tried Reiki tend to be afraid of it, but healing with your hands is what we all do each day. I've chosen to embrace Reiki as an alternate form of medicine in my life along with eating right, exercising and enjoying each moment. Thank you Amanda for your healing hands and thoughts that have helped me from near and afar. You are gifted and enjoy sharing that gift of healing with others. This is a blessing within itself.

Jane is intuitive when it comes to massage. The best massages I've ever had. I don't even think about trying someone else. You get a full, hard-working hour with a really nice gal who understands 'touch' and how it is medicine and positive energy for the body. She is simply the best. A+

    I originally tried accupuncture for my lower back pain, but quickly learned everything improved! Unlike western medicine where treatment may wait for test results and/or require powerful (and dangerous) prescriptions, accupuncture gives immediate results. Becky is a caring and experienced practitioner who will listen to your concerns and symptoms and treat them right away...I felt greatly improved after only one visit! It's the best I've felt in years!

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
