Testimonials

acutonics_sm“I continually suffer from a painful nerve disease and debilitating migraines. I also recently suffered the loss of a pregnancy. My pain is physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. With the help of Kristen with Acutonics and Mandy with OT, I am learning to have better coping skills and to process my pain. These strong women are helping me to have a different outlook on my circumstances and allow me to feel what I am feeling in a way that standard western medicine just doesn’t. Not only do they do hands on work, they also help connect emotions with physical manifestations to allow me to be more aware and mindful of habits and behaviors that can be destructive so that I can improve on them. My 3-year-old daughter also sees Mandy to help with her chronic constipation and self-regulating skills. I can’t think of a better recommendation than trusting your child with someone. These women have truly helped our family.”

“I’ve had several occupational therapy treatments with Mandy which went far beyond physical healing.  The therapy touched many levels of consciousness in an integrative dynamic and thus was genuinely holistic (whole).  I am grateful to have learned several simple healing techniques that I can call upon whenever the need arises to relieve any physical pain and/or emotional distress.  Mandy is that rare human being as a health practitioner who gives full attention and concentration to you, the patient.  You know that she listens with undivided attention to your responses whenever she puts a question to you or whatever you may offer on your own. She applies her full knowledge and expertise with sensitivity, understanding and, above all, compassion.”

“I was so desperate for relief from chronic pain and poor mobility that I had my nerve endings fried at Mass General, twice, with a procedure called “RF lesioning.” It was only after Kristen introduced me to acutonics that I was finally well enough to take advantage of Mandy’s version of occupational therapy, and my quality of life finally improved. Before Mandy, I had been through physical therapy at 5 different institutions, the most recent took place in a pool. Unfortunately, they all ended with similar setbacks and much frustration. Mandy was the only one to have the patience and variety of approaches to keep me going. Her education and attention brought gradual and steady improvement. I finally have something I never got from Mass General or all those attempts at PT… hope!

When I first met Kristen, I was desperate for pain relief and cared little about anything else. Acutonics helped reduce the intense, constant pain and soothed new flare ups. The positive results greatly surpassed the pharmaceutical approach pain management had me on and made me ask, “What else you got?” Kristen opened up new dimensions of hope for me. She was the first practitioner I met who could talk new strategies of time tested medicine without making them feel like “alternative” medicine. The depth of her knowledge and unshakable confidence kept me on the path of healing even when setbacks tested my own resolve. I don’t think about where I’d be if I hadn’t met Kristen. She’s taught me instead to keep my sights set on the wellness ahead of me and continue the journey with gratitude.

Thank you, Kristen and Mandy! I will always be grateful for the positive outcomes form our treatments and the path you set me on.”

“I felt confident going to Holistic Therapies 4 Life because of Mandy and Kristen’s medical backgrounds. The care here goes well beyond any you could receive in a doctor’s office. Mandy and Kristen take both Eastern and Western medical techniques and merge them to create a uniquely individualized healing plan for their clients; by getting to know me, they treat not just the symptom of my disease but the root cause as well. I am receiving the type of care I always wished was possible, Mandy and Kristen are kind, compassionate and both fully committed to their clients.”
