Alana Hammer is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist. She is nationally certified as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (Dipl.OM). Alana is also licensed as an Acupuncturist in the state of California where she practiced acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine as a primary care provider. Her passion for healing through traditional Chinese medicine ignited during a six-month sabbatical through South East Asia. The Orient and its traditions, representing a complete system of medicine, have long fascinated Alana. At the root of all these traditions is the idea that health is a reflection of a balanced life–that our true purpose is to go beyond mere physical health to achieve harmony between body, mind and spirit.

MODALITIES PRACTICED

Aromatherapy—
Aromatherapy uses Essential oils, created from specific plant extracts into pure, therapeutic grade oils. Essential Oils are personally selected for each client and are used during a massage to promote healing, support the body’s balance and create harmony mentally, physically, and emotionally. I am happy to demonstrate the use of Essential oils at the time of your first visit. Please contact me at 414.292.3900, Ext. 265 or CLICK HERE for more information.

Massage and bodywork cannot cure cancer but they can offer greatly needed relief and enhance quality of life. Under the care of the trained massage professional, they also contribute significantly to your healing process.

Cranio Sacral—
Cranial Sacral or Cranio Sacral Therapy (CST) is a hands-on healing practice that works with the central nervous system. It is widely used by osteopaths, chiropractors, naturopaths, physiotherapists and massage therapists. Using a very light touch, CST helps to release restricted tissue and allow the body’s return to its natural healing ability. Clients dealing with Migraines, headaches, TMJ Syndrome, Neck and back pain, Emotional issues and depression, Chronic muscle and joint pain, as well as, many other emotional and physical conditions will benefit from this therapy. Clients are fully clothed and lie or sit in a comfortable position during this therapy.

Kinesio Taping – Please note: K-Tape is available for purchase. I will instruct you on your specific issue for application at home between office visits.
Lymphatic Massage–
A lymphatic massage session is helpful for women who develop lymphedema after breast cancer surgery. It can also be helpful to restore the proper function of the lymph system compromised by burns, trauma, infections, surgery, swelling, fatigue, immobility, stress and/or age. The Lymph Massage Therapist gently rubs or pushes the skin in the direction that follows the structure of the lymphatic system allowing any accumulated lymph fluid to drain through the correct pathways. Lymph massage can also be performed with MediCupping. Due to the sensitive nature of this therapy, I would be happy to speak with you personally about any questions or concerns. Please call me at 414.292.3900, Ext. 265, or click the links below for more information.

Medi Cupping—
MediCupping Therapy uses glass or plastic cups and a vacuum machine to create suction on the body surface. As the cup moves over the surface, the practitioner uses various rotating techniques to help mobilize joints and release soft tissue. This suction works to pull inflammation and toxins to the surface so the skin and lymphatic system can eliminate them. Scar tissues often release quickly no matter how long ago the injury occurred. Many conditions are helped with MediCupping, such as, Arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, Loose skin from weight loss, Lymphadema, Fibromyalgia, Sports injuries, Cellulite, COPD, Parkinson’s disease and more. Please call me with any questions or concerns at 414.292.3900, Ext. 265. I’ll be happy to speak with you. CLICK HERE for more information.
Raindrop Therapy/Aromatherapy—
Raindrop Therapy is a powerful healing technique using essential oils, reflexology techniques, massage and moist heat to restore the body’s balance and harmony mentally, physically and emotionally. It promotes the structural and electrical alignment of the body for renewed health. It is a detoxifying process that helps to fight bacteria and viruses, while improving the immune system. Raindrop Therapy is relaxing, and rest is suggested following this one and half hour treatment. Conditions helped by Raindrop Therapy include energy fatigue; depression and emotional issues; arthritis and fibromyalgia, colds and flu, immune system deficiency, body pain and inflammation. Raindrop Therapy serves to detox the body, improves Lymph System circulation, as well as, promotes and restores healthy cells and all over balancing of the body.

Jodi A. Brin is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who enjoys working with children, adolescents, and adults. Her therapeutic style is best described as integrative, utilizing the framework that she sees as most helpful to each individual, couple, or family that she works with. She has been trained in a variety of therapy modalities, including play therapy, behavior modification, cognitive behavioral therapy, supportive therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. She has worked with clients and various clinical issues, including depression, anxiety, trauma, behavioral issues, ADHD, and grief and loss. Dr. Brin has a wonderful ability to connect and empathize with clients, allowing her to use the therapeutic relationship to help her clients move in a positive, healing direction.

Dr. Brin believes that grief and loss experiences greatly affect all of our lives; whether it be a death of a loved one, loss of a pet, separation, divorce, loss of job, a move to a new house, a child moving to college, loss/change in health, etc. Dr. Brin believes that internalized, suppressed grief often leads to physical and mental health issues. After experiencing her own grief and loss, Br. Brin became increasingly aware of the vast and conflicting emotions associated with grief and was intrigued by the verbal and nonverbal messages she received from others in response to her loss. Looking to explore this further, she found The Grief Recovery Institute and Participated in The Grief Recovery Method® Certification Program. As a certified grief recovery specialist, Dr. Brin helps to provide a safe, supportive environment in which the client can explore old beliefs about dealing with loss, identify what losses have effected one’s life, and help the client to take the steps necessary to complete the pain associated with those losses and move forward. In addition to helping adults, Dr. Brin helps grieving children to understand and express their feelings regarding their loss and helps the parent/ caregiver learn how to best support the child.

Dr. Brin also has a very special interest in psychological oncology. A member of the American Psychological Oncology Association, Dr. Brin works to treat the social, psychological, emotional, spiritual, and quality-of-life issues associated with cancer. Dr. Brin helps the client from the time of diagnosis, during treatment and survivorship, and through end of life issues and bereavement.

Dr. Brin earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Michigan State University, and her master’s and doctorate degrees from Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago. She is trained in play therapy, EMDR I and II, and is a certified Grief and Loss Specialist. Dr. Brin is a member of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychosocial Oncology Association.

She taught 100 heart patients in a study funded by the National Institute of Health through the Medical College of Wisconsin which demonstrated profound benefits including significant reduction of heart attacks, strokes and death among the TM practitioners.

“My greatest fortune was to be introduced to the TM practice in 1970. It’s my joy to share this wonderful technique with everyone, from those needing relief from suffering to those eager to realize the full potential of human consciousness.”

Bob Rabinoff, Certified Instructor for the Transcendental Mediation technique, holds a BA in Physics magna cum laude from Columbia University, and an MS and PhD in Atmospheric Physics from the University of Arizona. He has been practicing the TM technique since 1971 and studied with Maharishi to become a teacher of TM in 1973. Upon completing his degree, he went on to teach Physics at Maharishi University of Management (www.mum.edu) in Fairfield, IA for 9 years (1975-84) and served as Dean of Faculty from 1979-81. After leaving the University, Dr. Rabinoff embarked on a 30+ year in software design, and moved to Milwaukee to teach TM full-time upon retirement. He has taught TM in the US, Canada and Israel.

“I think part of Maharishi’s genius in bringing TM to the West was to recognize that spiritual growth will have a measurable physiological counterpart, and that by measuring the physiological, psychological and sociological changes brought about by TM, we could take the growth of higher states of consciousness out of the realm of the mystical and into the scientific arena. To accomplish this, he standardized the protocol of teaching TM, so that wherever you learn, you’re getting the real deal. That’s what so exciting to me about teaching TM – I know that whoever walks through the door, I can give them the key to developing their full potential as individuals so they can live happier, healthier lives.”

DR. Negrette is a board certified integrative holistic psychiatrist. Her path to integrative psychiatry began during her residency when she realized that her training in allopathic medicine and treatments was limited in its ability to heal. A close mentor and friend introduced her to holistic approaches in the treatment and maintenance of mental wellness and since then she has been incorporating creativity, movement therapies and psychotherapeutic modalities to heal her patients. As Dr. Negrette is trained and board certified in allopathic psychiatric treatments she understands that traditional medicines may be indicated as part of a person’s treatment plan however she prefers to limit their use, understanding that the body can be, and is, its own healer.

Dr. Negrette is passionate about working with people to reach their full potentials and helping others find their own paths and reconnect to their mental, physical and spiritual selves. In order to fully reconnect with one’s self Dr. Negrette utilizes an integrative approach; healing the mind through creative processes, mindfulness techniques, walk and talk therapy as well as judicious use of pharmacotherapy.

Carl Jung once stated, “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
