Rosemarie showed me, conclusively, what effects my eating habits were having on my blood, and showed me how to improve by eating the proper "colors" Honestly, I have always been skeptical of what I jokingly called "voodoo" medicine, but results are some thing that I can't argue with. Thank you Rosemarie.

Lucas Brown is an incredibly gifted and compassionate practitioner. When my sister moved to Colorado to expand her clinic, I had become accustom to receiving acupuncture treatments at least once every two weeks. After her departure, I was unsure as to who could understand, care for, and properly address my unique issues. Outside of the standard amount of stress most humans suffer from, I carry around a fair amount of anxiety and inflammation, am a single parent, holding two full time jobs, and am a 13 year cancer survivor. The first session with Lucas was wonderfully relaxing. The intake process was quick and concise and I got the sense that he took the time to read through my information prior to our session. I was confident that, together, we had identified all of my concerns, as well as areas where he felt we should explore. Afterward, I had a more deep rooted feeling of relaxation that lasted for the following three days. It is a gift to feel at peace and truly comfortable within my own skin. I can’t thank Lucas enough for the work that he does and am looking forward to sending my mother to see him on a consistent basis. Lucas has had success with reducing clients’ joint inflammation as to avoid major surgery and I am confident that we will see the same level of success for preventing her major knee surgery. I highly recommend that everyone, especially those that suffer from chronic pain, develop a maintenance routine with Lucas. He has working knowledge of herbs, supplements, and lifestyle enhancements to complement the treatments and is comfortable navigating insurance coverage to see what, if any, reimbursements are possible.

    I loved every minute of my weekly coaching/healing sessions with Satori. She is a gifted intuitive who draws on many holistic forms, moving gracefully from one to another during a session. Using a myriad of tools including books, readings, poems, cards, art, music, dance, yoga, core work, Chakra healing, meditation, guided visualization as well as intuitive listening and reflection, it was coaching like no other I have ever experienced! I have recommended her to several friends already.

    I was a client of Dr. Lewis Williams for several years before her relocation to Texas. The first time I came to Dr. Lewis Williams holistic salon and sat in her chair, she briefly brushed her fingers through my hair and scalp as all stylists do to emperically assess the health and condition of an individual's hair and scalp. Dr. Lewis Williams told me I had circulation issues on my left side based upon the difference in texture (smoother) on the left side compared to the right. I was impressed how she was able to ascertain that without taking my medical history. (Her assessment was in fact true though I had not mentioned it) Dr. Lewis is very thorough during consultations whether you are a client of the holistic salon, wellness center or Tricology clinic. I highly recommend dropping by for a consult, I promise you will not be disappointed. I appreciated the balance and peace that always abided at The Lotus Wellness Center and Tricology Clinic. As a board certified nutrionist and naturopath knowledge, and expertise was essential when I lost my hair shortly after my third chemotherapy treatment. Dr. Lewis upheld my dignity as she transitioned my shoulder length hair to beautiful bald head. Dr Lewis compassion prepared me for what lied ahead. Thanks doc! Slj Dayton, OH

    I've only studied with two teachers, Master Paul Davis and Master Jason Hammond. What's evident right away with Master Jason is his love for the Martial Arts, his skills as a Martial Artist and his deep knowledge of it's Applications. His work in Traditional Chinese Medicine gives him a working understanding of the underlying energies of a high level Martial Arts program... And he has the ability to communicate that when he teaches.

    My experience with Mind Body Music was great since the therapy helped a lot for relaxation and relieving a migraine. I´ve been taking this sessions and every time is better because Andrea provides new holistic treatments and instruments. I love it! Besides that, she tends in English ans Spanish. ______ Mi experiencia con Mind Body Music fue excelente porque la terapia me ayudó mucho a relajarme y a curar una migraña muy fuerte. He estado tomando varias sesiones y siempre hay algo nuevo: instrumentos o diversas formas de tratamientos de medicina alternativa. Me encanta este lugar. Además Andrea atiende a sus pacientes en español e inglés, y eso me hace sentir más cómoda.

    I first met Valerie as my teacher of a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course. Her calm way of being and confidence in how she was opening life changing possibilities to others encouraged me to pursue Certification in teaching MBSR. She continues to be a vital role in my journey. She has introduced me to Energy Medicine and is always amazing in her pursuit of helping others live more as they would prefer. I hold her presence in my life with the highest regard.

    About

    Around eight years ago I found myself in an Acupuncturist’s office, being treated for a persistent and intractable pain in my lower abdomen. This was not my first acupuncture treatment, but it was by far the most profound! Western medicine had no diagnosis for me and therefore they had no treatment plan for me, despite the hundreds of dollars I had already spent on tests. Acupuncture was a last ditch attempt at relief for me and I was honestly not too hopeful. Imagine my surprise when I was freed of my pain after a single treatment! My acupuncturist did not seem at all surprised by this… as a matter of fact, she seemed quite use to the shock and amazement that I was displaying. This, in and of itself, left an impression on me. I was undeniably inspired and motivated by this experience and two years later I took the plunge and enrolled in Chinese Medicine school. It became my life’s desire to help others in the simple, elegant, and effective way that my friend had helped me. Although Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and has helped millions of people around the globe, there has been some skepticism about it here at home. Until recently, that is! Once a marginalized medicine, Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are finally being recognized, utilized, and appreciated by some of our nation’s best hospitals.

    About

    I help people get to the root cause of what's stopping them from living their soul's full potential by removing old beliefs, patterns, stories and programming that is blocking them from the life they intend for them-self. Through healing comes transformation and growth. I started my own journey over 10 years ago to find the peace, freedom and health I so desired for myself. After being chronically fatigued for many years, I gravitated toward Alternative Healing when nothing else worked and went through a 2 year training program where I received a Master Certification in Intuition Medicine® certified through the State of California. It changed my life and I knew I had to share the tools with others because people are looking for ways to heal and heal for good!

    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.
