I want you know that I am okay without it; the “doctor” part that is. You are all so nice and will think and say, “but you earned it”, and “it’s respectful” etc. I am here to say that “Dr. Rick” comes with a price. You see, if I am a “Doctor” then you are a “patient”.
If you are a “patient”, then you are sick. I have news for you. I don’t see you as sick. I don’t see you as a “patient”. I see you as a beautiful, healthy, whole, complete and wonderful human being who is lacking nothing. I have nothing to put in you. There is nothing I want to take out of you. I just want to increase the flow of life in your body so you can heal you again and again everyday. I want you to heal physically, emotionally and spiritually. I want you to be connected so that healing happens and you reach higher and higher levels of wellness, life and connectedness. This is very far removed from doctors, patients, sickness and disease, so much more concerned with light, life and health.
Dr. Rick graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College at Los Angeles in 2000 with a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. He also attended Fairfield University for undergraduate studies receiving a Bachelor of Arts (1989), and the University of Bridgeport receiving a Masters Degree in Human Nutrition (1994).
Cynthia has been practicing yoga since 2001 and quickly
discovered the benefits both physically and mentally from her practice. She

She recently completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training in order to help others navigate through life’s challenges. Helping others release anxiety, relax and calm the mind is Cynthia’s passion.

I use the didgeridoo to perform sound healing and
music. I use this therapeutic practice to re-establish the peaceful connection
between mind, body and soul. My goal is to achieve balance and harmony within
myself and in others.
In a sound therapy session I will use the didgeridoo to perform sound vibrations in a communal space. Similar to gongs and singing bowls the didgeridoo uses frequency and vibrations to assist in healing processes. As you relax let the didgeridoo guide you into a meditative journey.
As a medicinal tool the didgeridoo is effective in releasing stress and negative energies within the body. Through sound and vibration emotional tensions of mind and body may be relieved. Feelings of peace, rejuvenation, clarity and even exploring the inner consciousness have been experienced. To bring a body's energy back into balance promotes to becoming grounded in its foundation.

Sue Pace is a Registered Nurse, licensed Paramedic, and both a Certified and Registered Aromatherapist. She holds certifications in Aromatherapy from Aromahead Institute, RJ Buckle’s Certified Clinical Aromatherapy Practitioner program for healthcare professionals, and recently
received her Advanced Diploma in aromatic medicine studies with Australian expert Mark Webb.
Sue says: “
The healthcare system in the United States is in a great state of flux. People are tired of being looked at solely as a series of diagnoses or conditions that need treatment. What needs to be “
is the individual. Certainly, there is a time and place for allopathic medicine when serious illness or injury is present. However, more healthcare professionals are waking up to the fact that patients benefit from being addressed as a whole person, considering diet, fitness and stress levels in forming a care plan. Aromatherapy is a wonderful adjunct in promoting mental and physical health.”
