Even as an undergraduate student in exercise physiology, Stephanie Reid disagreed with the idea that bodily healing can be achieved only with pills, specialists, and invasive treatments. Holding a firm belief in the body’s ability to heal itself, she worked toward her certification in naturopathy and founded Your Healing Place. Today, she combines modern technology with a holistic approach to search for root causes behind maladies. In one-on-one visits with patients, she answers common questions and discusses symptoms before sharing recommended readings and evidence from similar cases.
Inside Your Healing Space, smooth jazz meanders through the reception area, where a bubbling water fountain calms nerves with a sound like a scuba diver reading haiku. The smell of lavender wafts through each room, emanating from fresh plants picked in an outside garden. In a separate area for children, little noses press against a fish tank while patients walk into a treatment room filled with salt sculptures, carved onyx apples, semiprecious stones, and crawling vines. Stephanie’s team of therapists uses a battery of assessment tools to seek out tissue anomalies at the cellular level and target uncovered issues with ultraviolet light, homeopathic foods and supplements, and five massage modalities. Stephanie says that these treatments have gotten her calls from medical doctors, who were curious after witnessing their ability to improve well-being.
