Therapists Shannon Burnett and Danielle Hughes each discovered the benefits of holistic health care while seeking treatment for issues in their own lives. Unresponsive to medications, Shannon's young son's behavioral issues left her exasperated until she discovered Bowen therapy. Impressed by the calming results this acupressure technique had on her son, she began getting treatments herself, and soon decided to share the therapy with others. Fellow practitioner Danielle Hughes, born with a congenital hip dysplasia, also sought relief from medications and physical therapy to no avail. Her discovery of Reiki made an enormous difference in her life, and like Shannon, she sought to share the benefits with the world. Together, the certified therapists perform a wide range of whole-body services at their Cambridge studio. Through alternative therapies such as axiatonal alignment, Indian head massage, and reiki, practitioners seek to rejigger energy pathways to keep systems flowing smoothly and chi from engaging in illegal spirit-road races, and remedies such as massage and craniosacral therapy take a hands-on approach to easing bodily tension. For spiritual health, Bach Flower Remedies work to balance emotional states and banish irrational fears with selections from 37 homeopathically prepared flower essences. Let It Heal Cambridge also periodically educates clients with workshops on topics such as meditation, aromatherapy, and spiritual development, helping each person retain balance at home without buying a human-size kickstand.
At I?ve Got the Touch, certified foot reflexologist and holistic healer Rhonda Schlueter harnesses healing energies during personalized treatments to get bodies smoothly running with balanced energies.

Rhonda places her hands at specific points on the body to rebalance the body?s energy pathways and encourage homeostasis, which can help improve upon a range of ailments such as pain, fatigue, and ADHD.

Canadian Decompression and Pain Centers' healthcare experts work to relieve chronic neck and back pain using multidisciplinary treatments. The center specializes in Neuro-Decompression Therapy, a three-stage process designed to alleviate chronic conditions such as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and the uncontrollable urge to imitate a pretzel. The therapy starts with a thorough consultation and exam to check for spinal issues. During the second stage of therapy, clients recline on a spinal decompression table, which gently stretches aching joints between spinal segments as a biofeedback computer montiors the progress. The third stage, for qualifying patients, involves inhaling up to 92 percent pure oxygen during the decompression session to further ease muscle stiffness and potentially boost immune-system function. For those looking for a more incremental treatment, the center also offers a variety of products including mattresses and orthotics for shoes to help relieve back pain.
