What we offer....
At PARTNERS IN HEALING, we provide our patients with holistic care personalized for their unique needs. We strive to truly create a partnership between the patient and practitioners, enabling each patient to reach their optimal state of wellness.
Partners in Healing provides a variety of natural and holistic services including:
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine that uses fine needles to treat pain, illness, stress, and disease, as well as to aid in the detoxification process. It is performed by a licensed Acupuncture Physician (AP) who holds a master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
TCM is a style of natural medicine which originated in China over 2,500 years ago. TCM encompasses various practices which include herbal remedies and formulas, acupuncture, massage/body therapy known as Tui Na, movement therapy known as qigong, and food therapy.
In Florida, a TCM practitioner also utilizes homeopathy and homotoxicology as well as the use of North American herbs.
Manual manipulation of the spine allows for optimal health and function of the nervous system. This healing modality is both an art and science, as it requires a special practitioner to navigate the nuances of a human structure which is misaligned in order to return it to optimal function.
Chinese and American herbs
The utilization of whole plants (i.e. leaves, stems, and roots) found in nature can be used to naturally, safely, and effectively address pain, illness, inflammation, emotional issues, and disease. These herbal formulas are sourced from modern times, as well as from ancient texts written thousands of years ago in China.
Detoxification and Rejuvenation
Detoxification is the most powerful tool used in natural healing to aid the body in the self-healing process. Employing the Earth's gifts of fruits, vegetables, fresh juices, and nature's most amazing healing tools, herbs, we gratefully tap into the surrounding resources to generate the healing and rebuilding process. All Detoxification Specialists are certified by the International School of Detoxification and Dr. Robert Morse.
Detoxification Support Group
This is a bi-monthly support group which teaches detox recipes, food preparation, meditation, breath work, and the use of essential oils, as well as providing emotional support for those participating in this amazing healing process.
Homeopathic injection therapy is used to decrease the symptoms of pain, inflammation, and trauma as well as cold and flu symptoms such as fever, sore throat, and headaches.
“The eyes are the windows to the soul.” For those of us that believe this, Iridology gives us a view into the inner workings of the body by studying the patterns and markings of the iris. These patterns are correlated with specific parts of the body and their strengths and weaknesses thereby aiding the practitioner in choosing the appropriate holistic path to take.
The use of food as a natural therapy can address the cause of disease and bring optimal health and wellness to the body, in addition to addressing weight issues. Hippocrates of old embodied this sentiment best: "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food."
Deep Tissue Massage
Therapeutic touch can be used to manipulate soft tissue for the treatment of pain, decreased range of motion, stress, and circulation issues.
Cranio Sacral Therapy
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University where he served as professor of bio-mechanics.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
Often known as Tapping or EFT Tapping, EFT is a universal healing tool that can provide impressive results for physical, emotional, and performance issues. EFT operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues in the way. Even for physical issues, chronic pain, or diagnosed conditions, it is common knowledge that any kind of emotional stress can impede the natural healing potential of the human body.
Medical DITI, or Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging, backed by over 40 years of success, is a simple 15-minute non-invasive test that allows us to visualize and quantify changes in your skin surface temperature that can indicate early stage breast disease.
Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a gentle hands-on technique that stimulates the activity of the lymph vessels helping the lymph to move out of congested areas and back into the circulation. Lymph movement is essential for cellular detoxification & health, proper immune function, and tissue repair. Increasing the lymphatic circulation facilitates the waste removal, promoting the formation of lymphocytes that produce antibodies, increasing the body's resistance to infection. Manual Lymph Drainage is used for general wellness, to enhance healing, to aid in the reduction of lymphedema, as well as enhancing and supporting the detoxification process.
Sound and Color Therapy
Sound therapy is the therapeutic use of sound, vibration, and frequency to induce change in the body on a physical, emotional, and cellular level.
The body has its own rhythmic patterns, and there is growing evidence that the rhythms of the heart, brain, and other organs enjoy a special synchronicity. Illness and imbalanced emotional responses can arise when these inner rhythms are disturbed. Sound therapy sends vibration and frequency to where the body has fallen out of sync, essentially feeding the body its missing frequency so it can re-balance and re-align.
Sound therapy is felt on a physical level via the deep vibrations traveling through muscle, tissue, and organs, easing physical tension. It is beneficial for opening circulation and lymphatic flow and breaking down built-up lactic acid.
The tools implemented are also used to create overtones that allow the client to drift into a deeper relaxed state where brainwaves, heart rate, and respiratory rates all slow and allow for a more contemplative consciousness to awaken.
Color therapy is the therapeutic use of full-spectrum colored lights, colored silks, and color glasses to induce change in the body on a physical and energetic level. Color therapy is used to assist in the healing of mental, emotional, and physical issues, while restoring the whole person to health and harmony.
Full-spectrum colored lights are directed on the face, acupuncture points, and other reflex zones on the body, in order to activate inherent healing pulses of energy in the body and in the color being applied.
