Amie does a great Massage. I have gone in with a Specific place that is bothering me and when I leave the pain is left behind 98% of the time as well. I enjoy the hot stones and warm towels Amie uses to relax the muscles, which allows Amie to apply deeper pressure in areas. She has wonderful knowledge in nutrition as well, so you can pick up helpful information on your diet and exercise program while you are there. I guess my only complaint would be the time goes by too fast! ;-)

Melissa is a phenomenal nutritionist. I was referred to her by my personal trainer in September because I wanted to lose a significant amount of weight and have always struggled with following a healthy diet and lifestyle. Melissa has given me several very specific diet plans over the past 4 months that have enabled me to lose 70 pounds. I remain on my journey to lose another 30 pounds and Melissa continues to guide me throughout my journey. Melissa is meticulous, detail-oriented and demanding. She doesn't accept excuses. She holds her clients accountable for delivering results. I have been very successful in achieving my weight loss goals to date because of her constant guidance and my desire to "follow the plan". I highly recommend Melissa. She is an expert at teaching people how to follow a disciplined diet and achieve a healthy lifestyle.

    I've been working with Jessi for over a year and with her coaching I have grown into a place where I enjoy what I eat, I don't feel guilt about my food choices, and I feel better. I look forward to my time with Jessi and always walk away with new knowledge. Having worked with nutritionists before, I assumed Jessi would first evaluate my eating habits and I would then be assigned a diet. Instead, Jessi began by coaching me to change the way I think about my body and food (no foods are inherently good or bad) and helped me to identify stressors in my life and establish new habits for managing stress. Once these new habits and mindsets were established, we began tinkering with my food choices and identifying how they impacted me--mentally and physically--until we were able to identify foods that made me feel best. Jessi has helped me to change my my health habits and in ways that I wouldn't have been able to figure out on my own and were unlikely to be addressed by other professionals. Thank you, Jessi!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How much does a nutritionist cost?

    A nutritionist provides expertise and guidance to help clients with all diet-related health matters, including losing weight, gaining muscle, improving their sports performance, and managing diabetes or high cholesterol. Nutritionists can help people learn to follow special diets in a healthy way, such as becoming vegetarian or vegan or developing a low-sodium or gluten-free eating plan. The average national cost of a nutritionist is $60 to $100. Nutritionists often require an initial consultation with a new client, during which they’ll take a medical history, assess the client’s nutritional needs, and determine the best course of action; this first meeting usually averages $100-$120 for a 45-minute to 90-minute consultation. Subsequent nutritional counseling sessions generally cost less, ranging from an average of $45 for a half-hour session to $60-$90 for a one-hour session. Like many professional service providers, nutritionists may offer discounts through package pricing. For instance, a one-month package with two sessions and email support costs an average of $190; a three-month package with three sessions and email support costs an average of $360; and a six-month package with six sessions and email support costs an average of $540.  

    Are nutritionists covered by health insurance?

    Nutrition counseling can be a critical component of good health care, especially for people recently diagnosed with diabetes or high cholesterol who need to adhere to a specific diet. People also meet with nutritionists for help developing a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet, developing an eating plan to lose weight or gain muscle, or improving their sports performance by changing their diet. Nutritionists may be covered by health insurance depending on your reason for meeting with them. Nutrition counseling is more likely to be covered if it is part of a doctor-prescribed treatment for a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or coronary heart disease. For example, Medicare covers medical nutrition therapy services only for people diagnosed with diabetes or kidney disease, as long as they get a referral from their doctor. Also, insurance providers more often cover nutrition visits if the patient has been referred to a registered dietitian within the carrier’s network of providers. Insurance plans vary greatly, so research your benefits before visiting a nutritionist.
