Gary Hopkins can divide his mid-20s in two parts: the time before he discovered self-healing, and the time after he discovered self-healing. Before, overwhelming stress and overworking caused him to suffer from anxiety, insomnia, spinal misalignments, and gout. Then, he started meditating, practicing tai chi and energy healing, and taking natural supplements. Not only did these practices help remedy his ailments, but they also led him to a new career as an intuitive healer. Continuing these studies into his 30s, he added such holistic healing methods as Thai massage and reflexology to his regimen.
For more than 10 years, he’s shared his knowledge through a private practice and at Light Path Discovery Center. He is dedicated to helping others conquer physical, psychological, and emotional issues with carefully honed skills and several bodywork methods he developed on his own. For those unable to visit him personally, Gary has penned two books— The Master Within and Axiatonal Integration —that guide readers as they attempt to unlock their happiness, which is usually kept in a safe and buried under their childhood home.
A licensed pharmacist and clinician, James B. LaValle founded LaValle Metabolic Institute in 2001 to help people discover the benefits of integrated health care. To that end, he has teamed up with Dr. Gary Huber (DO) and assembled a team of experienced medical staff to assist patients to educate clients. They administer nutritional consults and Metabolic Code assessments, which analyze metabolic makeup in order to create a personalized plan for health. The clinic also focuses on hormone-replacement therapy, weight loss, stress and sleep support as well as GI issues.
