Little did Dr. Jan Iyengar know that visiting a homeopathic doctor 45 years ago would not only cure his asthma, but it would also stir a passion for homeopathy that’s guided the rest of his career.
Since breathing easier, he’s become a nationally certified massage therapist, homeopathic consultant, and board-certified hypnotherapist. Inside Body-Mind Wellness Center, Dr. Iyengar harnesses his advanced training in modalities including sports massage, trigger-point therapy, and myofascial release to help bodies drain metabolic waste and improve range of motion. His hypnotherapy sessions also open up his patients’ subconscious minds to suggestion, helping them gain control over the negative feelings that lead to addiction, overeating, and strongly worded letters to the editor about fire-hydrant placement.
