WHO WE ARE
The definition of healing in latin is "to care", that is our fundamental approach and the intention we hold for each client.
Jackie de Vries, MS, LMT, AIBT
After completing a Masters in Computer Science at Columbia University and working in computer research, Jackie went on to graduate from the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, a 4 year college equivalent program teaching spiritual and energy healing in 1999.
In 2005, following flu and tetanus vaccines and a significant life stressor, she experienced a major health decline, with muscle wasting, loss of speech and sensitivity to most foods. Jackie's journey to recover her health and her cognitive function led her to learn about the role of toxicity and to utilize functional medicine, environmental medicine and many complementary modalities, including neurotherapy for health restoration.
Jackie is a certified neurotherapist and a licensed massage therapist. She continues to leverage her research nature by investigating and evaluating promising healing modalities and wellness protocols. Her goal in clinical practice is to help each client find their path to wellness.
Jackie is married and has two sons in college, both of whom have been shepherded through school with learning differences. She has lived in Mahwah, NJ for 29 years.
Sheryl Leventhal, MD, Medical Director
Sheryl is a former oncologist currently practicing Functional Medicine, a branch of medicine that uses nutritional science and biochemistry to holistically approach wellness and disease. In my practice, I explore the genetic and environmental factors that influence wellness - from complex diseases such as cancer and Lyme Disease to chronic illnesses such as fatigue and Crohn's disease. The blog is meant to complement the information I give my patients and to address the environmental conditions that make us sick! When I am not seeing patients, I enjoy playing tennis, pilates, cooking and spending time with my husband and two boys.
