Seasons Natural Healthcare, LLC is a naturopathic medical practice that has been serving individuals and families in southern NH and northern MA for the past 5 years. Dr. Rivard helps patients resolve their health concerns and feel great with natural therapies, offering safe and effective alternatives to drugs and surgery.
HealthSource provides a full range of services for keeping bodies in line, specializing in chiropractic care, massage, and rehabilitation. Massage therapists manipulate distressed deltoids with hands licensed in therapeutic massage and shadow-puppet recitals, relieving pain and tension from shoulders and backs. The chiropractic consultation provides guests with a detailed overview of causes behind specific symptoms, as well as recommended courses of action, all with a greater success rate than using a fly swatter to squash disobedient aches and pains.
Discover Chiropractic has been open for more than 13 years. Perhaps its longevity is due to licensed chiropractor Dr. Tom's use of the most gentle techniques available and his willingness not only to go the extra mile for his patients—he regularly offers to fit kids' backpacks for free to ensure healthy weight distribution—but also for the community at large. Discover Chiropractic's Facebook page is littered with photos and blurbs delineating the ways in which Dr. Tom stays involved. He and his team have collected sheets for the troops, teamed up with the local police force for a fun and informative safety block party, and raffled off baseball tickets.
In 1999, Allyssa Bedard earned her bachelor's degree in psychology and women's studies from the University of Massachusetts. By 2001, she began helping people feel better physically as well as mentally. She earned her license in massage therapy, later obtaining special certifications in orthopedic massage and prenatal massage.
Within Soma Holistic Therapy Center, Bedard soothes muscles and joints with modalities such as deep-tissue kneads. Sessions aim to reduce pain such as chronic neck and back pain, pain caused by sports injuries, TMJ disorder, migraines, and repetitive-motion injuries. Patrons can also choose craniosacral therapy, which releases neck tension and back pain by improving the flow of cerebrospinal fluid through the spine.
It looks a little like a remote control standing on two short legs, but the PulStar device is designed to gently align spinal segments. At East Coast Chiropractic, Doctors April and John Kosinski rely on this device when correcting subluxations in the spine that can lead to a host of ailments. They prefer this technological method above traditional hands-on adjustments for its gentleness; the PulStar involves no harsh cracking or neck popping.
"I put people in Trance – to get them out of 'the trance' of their negative thinking, habits, and behavior- and move them in the direction of healthy thinking, habits and behavior."
It seems backwards, but Addie Kania's approach to wellness is deceptively intuitive: she can only unravel the complexities of the subconscious after drawing the subconscious to the forefront. With her clients coaxed into hypnotic states, Addie helps them navigate their inner selves to unearth the underlying causes of compulsive behavior, negative thinking, and positive thinking about negative things.
While triumph over common complaints such as weight gain or smoking addiction ultimately lies in the client's actions—since "change," Addie stresses, "also needs to be consciously cultivated"—Addie's upheaval of subconscious blockers may help clear the path to wellness.
