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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Swedish—
Swedish massage is best known as the relaxing massage with many different forms of strokes to manipulating of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Anyone can benefit from this bodywork.

Flip Troiano, MD, is a functional integrative medicine practitioner and fellow in the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), a member of the Institute of Functional Medicine and a board certified Emergency Medicine physician. He is one of the founding members of the Wisconsin Institute of Integrative Medicine.

He earned his undergraduate BBA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin – School of Medicine. He did his internship at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, where he earned the Dr. Bruno Epstein Achievement award in recognition of Meritorious Service in the care of patients. He finished his second year of Internal Medicine residency and his Emergency Medicine Residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin. He has practiced Emergency Medicine since 1987, first as faculty in the Section of Trauma and Emergency Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin, continuing with full time practice of Emergency Medicine for 16 years at St. Luke’s Medical Center and 9 years at Aurora Sinai Medical Center in Milwaukee, WI.

In the Emergency Department most of his time was spent dealing with the exacerbations of chronic illnesses. Dr. Flip saw ever increasing numbers of younger patients returning to the Emergency Department with worsening exacerbations of heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, chronic fatigue, abdominal pain, chronic immune diseases, and obesity. He became increasingly concerned with the standard practice of medicine which emphasizes the treatment of symptoms but does little to encourage a root cause analysis of the disease process.

“Dr. Flip” is presently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Anti-Aging, Regenerative and Functional Medicine.  In the field of functional and integrative medicine he discovered that we already have the science and the ability to diagnose and reverse or significantly alter the course of many of the chronic diseases that are plaguing our society today. Following a thorough evaluation of history, genetic factors, environmental exposures, nutritional status, sleep patterns, stress levels, support systems, exercise habits and laboratory testing an individualized plan of care is developed. These plans integrate lifestyle modifications and relevant, evidence-based science from both traditional and alternative medicine in order to restore and maintain health. Dr. Flip’s goal is to help his patients lead healthy, happy lives filled with boundless energy, restful sleep, increased mobility, less pain and great vitality.

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!

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.

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.”
