Uma is a caring and loving individual and it shows in her work. I met Uma at a time when my personal trainer suggested that I get massage therapy to complement my workouts. I found Uma and the Lotus Wellness Center and my life changed from the first appointment almost four years ago. Not only did I receive the benefit of holistic massage therapy, I also started back on track with my spiritual awareness, something I had put on hold for too long. Visiting with Uma awakened my spirit again for which I am very grateful. I have also taken Reiki classes with Uma and am proud to say that I am a Reiki Master and use Reiki in my everyday life. I highly recommend an experience with Uma because it will most certainly change your life at some level. She is special and she will help you find the specialness in you.

Mr. Tsakounis (Thom) is a skilled and caring therapist. We came to "A Quiet Journey Counseling " center for couples counseling. My husband was very reluctant at first, but quickly found Thom to be a supportive and understanding ally. Feeling like Thom "got " him, and us, allowed our work with Thom to progress quickly. As a mental health therapist myself, I have very high expectations for fellow counselors. Thom met or exceeded my expectations! He is well versed in a number of holistic, cognitive behavioral and Gestalt modalities, and a genuinely caring human being. While my husband and I have more work to do, Thom has supported us and given us new tools to communicate more effectively in our relationship. I reccommend Mr. Tsakounis whole-heartedly!

    I bought toe readings from Pamela for 5 of my friends. Some of my friends were skeptical at first, but once they read their readings, they were shocked at how accurate and spot on they were. The care and love shown through her words, were noted by all of my friends. They were pleased with the details and guidance given by Pamela and by her passion and desire to help. They are now telling their friends about the fabulous toes readings by Pamela!!

      I had been suffering from insomnia for quite a long time and had tried many different treatments offered by conventional medicine without any long term positive results. A friend suggested giving acupuncture a try and after a few treatments I was able to once again experience uninterrupted and deep sleep. Laura Rose is a professional acupuncturist who is extremely skilled, patient centered and a deeply, compassionate individual. I would recommend Laura without condition.

      I started working with Rich in 2009 when traditional medicine was not working for my chronic pain. Rich introduced me to Holotropic Breathwork and has helped me using Rolfing, Somatic Experience, Active Assisted Stretching, Energy Work, and TRE. Working with him not only reduces the pain after a session, he offers ways to work at home to relieve pain. I continue to work with Rich on my journey to release chronic pain. I'm so much better now than 2009 and look forward to the possibilities as I continue to work with him.

      Get back pain relief; feel like a million dollars! The raindrop therapy method utilizes a series of highly anti-microbial essential oils in order to minimize inflammation. The nine oils are distributed like drops of rain from around six inches above the back, and massaged alongside the spine, and above the rest of the back. A hot compress is then used to assist in the absorption of the oils and relax the muscles. Raindrop method is based upon the theory that many kinds of scoliosis and spinal misalignment are caused by viruses or bacteria that lie latent along the spine. These pathogens make inflammation, which in turn, contorts and disfigures the spinal cord. The benefits of raindrop therapy technique are: * Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory * Antiseptic * Aid in air purification * Reduce appetite and aid in weight loss * Aid healing by increasing oxygen in the body * Natural chelators * Sleep aid * Balances hormones * Heals burns * Enhances circulation and immune system Raindrop therapy uses a sequence of nine highly-anti-microbial essential oils gently dropped on the spine and then massaged lightly in using various hand to body techniques. Heat application is also used. Many types of spinal misalignment are caused by bacteria and viruses which lie latent along the spine resulting in inflammation and deformity. Stress, which causes reduced oxygen and circulation to the body, can intensify the inflammation resulting in pain and misalignment. We all carry viruses and bacteria, which deplete our immune system. Everyone benefits from raindrop therapy because the spinal column has nerves which feed the entire body. Wonderfully soothing, nurturing and relaxing, raindrop therapy can work its benefits in the body for days to months or weeks after the application. It is a non-invasive tool for correcting defects in the curvature of the spine.

      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.
