Health Professionals in Maine (ME)
"There is a Divine Body Intelligence which guides our wellness. In most cases it is masterfully working in the background. Yet there are things which we experience and hold onto that can hamper that Intelligence from working fluidly. My gifted ability is to communicate and assist that part of the mind/body/spirit which is both seeking balance and holding onto miscreations. Like the child prodigy who can play the piano, I was born with this ability yet was told to shut it down. I have found my way back to self and am helping others in amazing ways."

"As a Naturopathic Doctor it is my job to view my patients with a holistic perspective. Rather than chasing symptoms and individual body systems, it is important to seek out the root causes of illness and work at this fundamental level.

My ideal patients are open to learning and examining health issues "out of the box"."
"Breathe Easy Massageworks offers non-invasive injury recovery and wellness massage for revitalizing body and mind. It's a great joy and privilege to support the energy engineered by a person's inner resources, physical state, and conscience, as they respond to input and new proprioceptive awareness activated through their massage therapy treatments. Each massage therapy client is naturally unique and, therefore, unpredictable in her response to bodywork. Changes happen only with the client's willing approval. Because clients are active participants in the process, this positive and interactive approach allows change to be deeply integrated and easily assimilated."
"My philosophy in treating patients is not only evaluating the signs and symptoms of a disease, but also looking at the person as a whole entity with imbalances causing “dis-ease”. I also believe in the powerful connection that happens between the patient and the practitioner, in that connecting to the patient is an integral part of the healing process. My special interests include chronic pain, arthritis, woman’s health (including pre-natal, pregnancy & delivery), addictions, gastro-intestinal disorders, and mental/emotional disorders."

"THE TYPICAL PATIENT THAT I SEE IS ONE THAT WANTS TO SPEND AN HOUR WITH A PHYSICIAN. WHO IS LOOKING FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT THEIR PERSONAL PHYSICIAN DOES NOT HAVE THE TIME TO GIVE. THE PATIENTS THAT I SEE IN CONSULTATION ARE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER OPINON OR AN ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT PROGRAM USING A HOLISTIC AND NUTRITIONAL APPROACH THAT INCLUDES ACUPUNCTURE. THE USE OF SUPPLEMENTS AND OTHER NUTRITIONAL MODALITIES RATHER THAN PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION IS RECOMMENDED WHEN EVER POSSIBLE . HOWEVER WESTERN MEDICINES ARE OFTEN THE BEST CHOICE FOR MANY PATIENTS. AS A MEDICAL DOCTOR I HAVE THE ABILITY TO PRESCRIBE BOTH."
"If you are struggling because you have pain issues, difficulty sleeping, or are undergoing mental and emotional stress, massage therapy may bring you the relief you seek. I have helped many people with a wide array of issues--people with very physical jobs, people who sit all day, athletes, people who have undergone great physical traumas and surgeries--the benefits of massage therapy are far reaching. In addition to resolving pain issues, massage therapy promotes deep relaxation and a sense of well being. As your body releases tension, your mind becomes more peaceful."
