I went to try Lomi because I was curious and it shaped up to be an extremely relaxing and positive experience. I'm returning this week for a massage with Edward too because not only did I get a very professional, welcoming, trustworthy vibe from him, but I could tell he'd be excellent in that context too (targeted pain relief as opposed to something more holistic and meditative). I really appreciated the sensitivity in his approach. I do think 'meditative' is the best way to describe Lomi and I would definitely recommend it.

It was the best reiki experience that I have ever had. She is the kindest soul who I connected with immediately. We had and hour energy healing session followed by an angel card reading. I have never felt so rejouvenized in my life. I will definitely book her for regular ongoing sessions

I was in very poor health when I started treatments with Robert. I suffered from food allergies, musculoskeletal pain, and sleep problems. Robert is a great practitioner. He also asks questions and offers suggestions for improvements in all areas of life related to health; such as diet, and supplementation. After only two months of treatment I am a very different person, able to get back to my life that I remember. Change happened immediately and improvements have been steady.

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.

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. Namaste

"I started seeing Dr. Song three years ago when I was trying to get pregnant and I had autoimmune thyroid problems. she helped me keep my thyroid hormones regulated. Then she assisted me in the process of IVF. I was under her care throughout my pregnancy till two weeks before my delivery. Now I am seeing Dr. Song again for postpartum care. I was able to control my emotions much better after having acupuncture treatments. Without the help from Dr. Song, I couldn't imagine to have got pregnant at age 46 and delivered successfully. Both my husband and I are strong believers and do not hesitate to recommend Dr. Song and HolliBalance Well-being Center."

    Michael is one of the most passionate and sincere people I know. He guides his classes and practice with his whole heart and mind. One of his most outstanding attributes is his ability to give space to his students to find their own answers to health, happiness and peace within themselves, which creates lasting change & growth within a person.

    I was new to the South Shore area and was looking for a good massage provided by a holistic-minded practitioner. I perused the internet, asked around town and then serendipitously stumbled upon an article about Energy Matters in the local paper. After reading the article, it was clear that I had found the place that I was looking for. Clearly, Energy Matters was a place to get a great massage, but after reading the paper's interview with Stephanie, I sensed that I would also be in presence of an intelligent and gifted practitioner. And I was not to be disappointed. Energy Matters is a beautiful, relaxing place, with soft lighting, gentle music and soothing herbal aromas. Stephanie is a healer of both the body and soul. Her hands are healing, and her extensive experience and education is evidenced by her knowledge of the anatomy and systems of the body. She intuitively senses pain hotspots and uses her skill to release tension and to balance energy throughout the body. The result of an Energy Matters massage is a feeling of total well being. Stephanie's counseling background allows her to meet the needs of her client's physical as well as mental well being. She has played the role of a 'life coach' for many of her clients, helping them to articulate and realize their dreams and aspirations. In my own experience, Stephanie helped me to take the steps to move closer to my life goals. In short, Energy Matters is not only a place to get a great massage, but it may be a life changing experience. When the soul and body are balanced, it is a beautiful thing. If health, clarity and well being is something that is important to you, I recommend that you make an appointment with Stephanie at Energy Matters. You will be so very glad that you did.

      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)

      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.

      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 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.
