My Mentors

Web Pic1You can learn a lot about someone based who their teachers are. Below are the people that I follow through newsletters, blogs, books, seminar training, etc. These are my teachers and great healers and health care providers in their own right. Their insights, support  and generous giving of their time have made me who I am as a health care practitioner today. Thank you all!

  • Leslie Feinberg, D.C. (NMT--Neuromodulation Technique) A great "energy" technique protocol. Les has been instrumental in describing how these type of techniques work and thus stripping the work down to the essentials. In the process he has greatly expanded the possibility of what is thought of as "informational" medicine. There is no greater comprehensive protocol for informational medicine out there. Period!
