Health Professionals in Maine
"If you are under constant STRESS and you are seeking relief from chronic PAIN such as Back Pain, Headaches, TMJ, Shoulder & Neck Pain, Arthritis, Hot Flashes, Sciatica, or Muscle Tension & Stiffness, then I can help. I offer a variety of massage types including Deep-tissue, Neuromuscular, Swedish, Circulatory, Sports, Lymphatic, and Gentle Therapeutic to specifically address these issues."
"Struggling to manage IBS, migraines, arthritis/joint pain, eczema, or fibromyalgia? There is a common thread linking these types of pain and discomfort - inflammation. The work I do pinpoints specific foods your body is negatively reacting to. When these foods react, they cause inflammation. When we remove the causes of inflammation, my clients feel their symptoms significantly decrease - sometimes even disappear. I do this work using the MRT test and LEAP protocol; clients' reactive foods are removed and systematically reintroduced when appropriate. This method allows us to know exactly what to eliminate rather than play a never-ending guessing game."
"I am a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and a Licensed Acupuncturist. My unique education is complementary based in both Eastern and Western medicines. I hold a Master's degree in Chinese Herbology and have worked to receive advanced certification in treating immune dysfunction. As a general practitioner, I provide one-stop healthcare to the entire family. Some of my areas of experience are in Digestion, Gynecology/Obstetrics, Pediatrics, Orthopedics and Liver disorders. I have also seen great results with auto-immune disease, pain management, allergies, interstitial cystitis, fibromyalgia, weight loss, candida, as well as a myriad of other health concerns."
"Acupuncture is a safe, effective, and natural form of healthcare that will get you feeling your best. Treating a patient is not just a matter of giving someone acupuncture. All aspects of your wellness are addressed, from stress management, and exercise, to diet and simple lifestyle changes. Watching patients reclaim their health, and seeing the immense changes that transpire over weeks or months, is truly phenomenal. Many patients come to me after "trying everything else," and it's great to be able to give them the relief they've been searching for."
"My interest in acupuncture began in 1986 after I first received treatment. My positive experience led me to want to study the tradition and to offer it to others. The foundation of my practice is in Five-Element Acupuncture. Continuing education has led me to other treatment forms that work well with the Five-Element tradition. Since 2004 I have been certified as an Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist working with addictions. Since 2006 I have been certified as a Zero Balancer. I use Dr. Tan's Balance method for pain relief. I enjoy working with both children and adults, and employ acupressure and non-insertive needle techniques for those who would prefer an option to working with the needles. My approach to treatment is to hold each patient in their wholeness, working from a place that sees human beings as an integral part of nature made up of complex relationships between their anatomy and physiology and their emotional and spiritual bodies. I listen and respond to the body's systems as uniquely expressed by each person to address imbalances and restore health and well-being. With improved balance in the body's systems, the quality of your life will be enhanced."

"Breathe Easy Massageworks offers non-invasive injury recovery and wellness massage for revitalizing body and mind.

Each massage therapy client is naturally unique and, therefore, unpredictable in his or 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 fascial changes to be easily assimilated and deeply integrated."
"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."

I work with my client's feedback so that I can work within their comfort zone for that session and get them to a place where they can feel a little better."
"A "practice" has been defined as "the actual application or use of an idea, belief, or method as opposed to theories about such application or use" and anything that you do regularly that nurtures you. I approach my massage as a "practice". It is something I endeavor to do consciously, with hopeful intent to benefit both people involved. Through massage and the act of human touch, we can encourage a progression towards a healthier, more whole state of being from which healing from within can take place."
