Integrative Consultations with Ann Marie

Not instead of, but in addition to…

Bridging Old World practices

with New World Science

to safely facilitate

Wellness

Healer, heal thyself. I have approached my own personal healing as a holistic endeavor through participation in and receiving immeasurably healing work through gifted healers and traditional healing modalities. These have included Ayurveda & Yoga, massage and energy work including EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique or ‘Tapping’) and various plant medicine methods. I have felt the power in drum making and playing; participating in sweat lodges; leading workshops in communing and medicine making with plants and teaching Women’s Wellness through Dance at various workshop settings including large Conferences, weekend workshops and local wellness gatherings.

As well as receiving & teaching, I have spent more than two decades studying with teachers in these practices, learning how to work with plants in life-changing apprenticeships in 1998 and 2005. I have studied and continue to study with many beautiful Herbalists through walks, workshops, and retreats. I obtained Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) 200h with Sivananda Meneekshi Ashram in Madurai, India in 2007. After years of exploring the Mind & Body connection, I delved deeper into Spirit working with Alaska Native and non-native populations in rural Alaska. I completed coursework in Interfaith Ministry and Spiritual Counseling with The New Seminary in NYC where I was ordained as an Interfaith Minister in 2009. I continue to earn hours towards YTT 500 and hope to complete Therapeutic Yoga Therapy training with Kripalu when classes resume post-Covid 19 in 2022. I have deeply embraced motherhood and the evolution parenting brings about, first through loss and now in the daily work of raising my beautiful son. Additionally, I have gained greater insight into karmic patterns, personal strengths and challenges, and understanding archetypes within myself through the work of Transpersonal Astrology since beginning my studies in 2005. I enjoy sharing this work with others to facilitate a greater understanding of the self through the personal mandala that is your birth chart.”

There is a life-force within your soul, seek that life. There is a gem in the mountain of your body, seek that mine. O traveler, if you are in search of that, don’t look outside, look inside yourself and seek that. ~Rumi

Integrative Medicine consultations are for patients who wish to use complementary health therapies ie: herbal therapeutics, cannabis, CBD, Yogic practices, etc. in conjunction with the prescribed treatments for their medical conditions, or in place of them. Guidance will be provided regarding the benefits and limitations of complementary and medical therapies, enabling persons to make an informed choice and use treatments appropriately and safely. My consultation practice is evidenced based including findings from the National Institutes of Health, the World Health Organization as well as valuable studies done internationally.

Your Visit can highlight a specific practice or a combination of several in a private or small group visit. You can become familiar with your birth chart and the guidance it can provide through Transpersonal Astrology. Utilize Sanskrit chanting (Bhakti Yoga), Asanas (Yoga Postures-Raja Yoga) or Pranayama (Yogic breathing techniques) to achieve a greater sense of wellness. Be guided through a moving meditation outdoors or utilizing traditional dance moves to clear energetic blocks and find your plant allies. Co-create rituals for life transitions. These are some of the ways that we can work together, and it may not be clear where to start until we begin to discuss your goals for healing and wellness in a relaxed and open atmosphere.

These sessions are an opportunity to learn about and heal the physical, emotional and spiritual through approaches engaging the whole person. Please NOTE: These sessions will not be covered by insurance. A receipt will be provided for submission to your FSA/HSA. Please ensure services will be reimbursed by calling your agent. Sliding Scale available, please request at time of booking.
