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. Prior to this, she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at the University of Colorado. Alana has done extensive post-graduate work in women’s health and obstetrics through seminars, workshops and internships.

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.

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.

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. Her treatments offer a gentle and individualized approach within a relaxing atmosphere. Among her specialties are conditions of musculo-skeletal pain (neck, back, shoulder, arm, knee, etc.), fibromyalgia, gastro-intestinal disruptions, gynecological concerns, sports-related injuries, and stress-related issues. 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.”

Note

“It is important to understand the stressors that affect the life of each patient. It is only when physical, mental, and emotional levels are optimal that any person has truly good health. The process of finding each person’s specific blocks to wellness is most rewarding for me when there is a patient commitment in working towards this same goal.”
