Though Amy Granger and Kathryn Brooks are trained in different areas of holistic healthcare—Amy is a colon hydrotherapist and Kathryn is a reiki master and iridologist—they share a common goal: to support the body’s natural healing processes. At Love and Light Holistic Health Services, they team up to achieve this goal with a number of alternative treatments.
Amy draws on her vast knowledge to flush out toxins lodged in the intestinal tract during colon hydrotherapy treatments. To ensure a comfortable experience, she incorporates relaxing aromatherapy into each hour-long session, and may call on acupressure and energy work as necessary. For another dose of detoxification, guests can sit back and enjoy ionic foot baths. These soothing treatments use electrically charged water to release toxins through the feet, so you’ll never have to ruin another radio by taking it into the bathtub with you.
The health practitioners at Louisville Wellness Center work with one unified purpose: to heal, inspire, and connect with the greater Louisville community. They do this through health and wellness services that range from massage therapy to naturopathic medicine and psychotherapy. Through nutrition coaching, they help clients effectively address digestion issues and stabilize energy levels to avoid afternoon face-plants into computer keyboards. The knowledgeable staff also educates the community throughout the year with monthly wellness talks, women’s mindfulness groups, and training sessions.
At heart, Doctor of Chiropractic Randall B. Moore of Moore-Life Chiropractic Wellness Center is a family man and a humanitarian. His work reflects his role as a father: after the birth of his daughter, Dr. Moore decided to train in the Webster technique so that he could help expectant mothers. He is also currently studying toward a diplomate in pediatric-chiropractic care. This compassion extends beyond his flesh and blood, too. He hosts an annual food drive and has designated the first Wednesday of each month as Donation Day, in which clients make a payment of their choice, and the doctor donates the proceeds to local charities and patients who cannot afford treatment.
In addition to specializing in pregnancy and infant care, Dr. Moore has extensive training in treating extremity and sports injuries. He and his team enhance the benefits of chiropractic adjustments with services such as massage therapy, acupuncture, and low-level laser therapy, which is designed to accelerate the body's healing process and enable patients to scan grocery barcodes with their fingers.
After more than 15 years working in medicine, Family Nurse Practitioner Dee Warner took her health-improving passion to Pure Homeopathy in 2012 to break free of standard short office visits. To do this, she now practices a method which includes using a blend of traditional and holistic medicine while also performing physical exams and ordering prescription medications when needed. Warner counters the conventional practice of placing labels on medical conditions by personalizing appointments and collecting information from her patients to create individualized treatment plans, which include changes to lifestyle and diet.
The clinic also specializes in homeopathy, where patients are guided through their weight loss goals with the help of Dr. Lisa Amerine, ND and a registered dietician. Massages are also offered from a certified massage therapist.
After an acupuncturist cured a chronic sinus infection that antibiotics did not help, Michele Pimenta discovered the benefits of alternative medicine. She changed her career from a photographer to a facilitator of healing methodologies, and is now a biodynamic craniosacral therapist and certified practitioner of structural integration. Her techniques overall help align the body and balance the nervous system, and specifically treat back pain, neck pain from car accidents, and lingering pain from old football or thumb-wrestling injuries.
Rather than looking at each person as a blank canvas for needle art, acupuncturist Joni Jackson works with her clients to educate them about the ancient treatment and learn about their symptoms, ultimately maximizing the effects of each treatment. During sessions, Joni inserts hair-thin needles to alleviate stressors on the body and psyche. Her sessions work to curb headaches, sleep issues, depression, anxiety, and addictions to tobacco or acupuncture needles.
