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.

Alana earned her Masters of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM) in San Francisco.

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.
Cancer and Mastectomy Therapy—
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. Cancer and Mastectomy therapy safely nurtures the body, mind, and spirit of anyone dealing with cancer. I understand the privacy of this care and would be happy to discuss this Therapy with you.

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. I am happy to address any questions or concerns, please contact me at 414.292.3900, Ext. 265, or CLICK HERE For more information.
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.

Reiki Therapy
Crystal Healing

Maria Giordano, is a graduate of the Free Spirit School in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Maria established Healing Hands Integrated Energy Therapy in 2009 and  has studied crystal healing and Reiki I & II.  She continues to expand her knowledge of therapies to help her clients.

Healing Hands Integrated Energy Therapy uses the ancient healing techniques of Reiki, using the “life force energy” to heal by balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a combination of two Japanese words “rei and ki” meaning universal life energy.

Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system. Your Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed. Reiki’s ki energies flow out of the practitioner’s body through the palms of the hands while they are touching or suspended slightly above your body.

Benefits of Reiki Therapy
Releases stress and pain
Calms anxiety and depression
Enhances recovery from surgery
Helps your immune system
Helps relieve neck and back problems
Provides relief from chronic illnesses and cancer
Helps manage high blood pressure and diabetes
Helps deepen spiritual connection
Creates a sense of well-being

What Happens in a Session
When you visit us you will be asked to lay down on the massage table fully clothed except for your shoes. You may be asked to remove or loosen your belt so that your breathing is not restricted in any way. Therefore, choose loose-fitting garments to wear on the day of your appointment. Natural fabrics are always best (organic cotton, wool, or linen.) You may also be asked to remove any jewelry such as rings, bracelets, pendants, etc., prior to the session, so consider leaving these items at home.

I am passionate and compassionate about helping people. I enjoy working as a healer, assisting others on their way to a healthy life style with a variety of very safe treatments with proven success.

A deeply spiritual person, over the years I have learned a variety of methods of healing that are truly life changing. I do this work with a lot of joy, caring and love.  I am an associate with the School Sister of Notre Dame. I have 3 children and 5 grandkids and I enjoy spending my time with them as much as possible.  I enjoy reading, being with people and going on spiritual retreats.

 I look forward to meeting you — call for a brief complementary consultation!

With over a decade of experience in acupuncture and over two decades of experience and training in yoga, meditation, and stress management techniques, Ragani integrates a broad scope of wellness interventions into her acupuncture treatment sessions.

She is available for complimentary phone consultations for any questions regarding acupuncture and its treatment effects.

My experience with Ragani still feels like a miracle cure to me.
After just one month of treatment, I was free from 25 years of acute pain associated with
endometriosis. I can’t even begin to describe what a difference this has made
in my life. Ragani is an exceptional healer who approaches her practice with
incredible knowledge, skill, wisdom and compassion. I am forever grateful.
” -T.S.

“I’d suffered back spasms on and off for more than 20 years. Two acupuncture
sessions with Ragani and they went away and have not returned. Her gua sha
treatments have also worked well for me for other pain and circulation problems.
Ragani really takes time to listen to her patients and her holistic approach and
deep knowledge of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine gets great results for me.”

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.
