With the arrival of autumn, everyone is talking about the changing colors and the fall festivities. When we think of fall, we think of hiking, biking, and many other outside activities. It all sounds so exciting and enjoyable, but then you remember the soreness that follows, or back pain that accompanies it.
Don’t let those thoughts stop you from enjoying the beauty of the changing season. You can utilize the power of medical massage to prepare or recover from a long day outside.
Dr. Joan can alleviate those aches and pains that come from such fall activities. Whether you […]
I just received three phone calls today from women who were desperately searching for answers to their crazy behaviors and why they don’t feel like themselves. You may be in the same situation. Do the following scenarios sound familiar?
- If you are tired, stressed out, constantly battling weight and with a sex drive that is either gone south or off the planet, there is hope.
- If you are yelling and screaming at your kids and husband for no apparent reason, there is a reason.
- If you are in pain during your menstrual cycle so severe that you have to stay home from […]
Of course not, unless you want to keep the pain you’ve had for years; unless you want to continue feeling tired, sluggish, and fatigued; unless you aren’t concerned about your overall health; unless you want to continue in unhappy, non-supporting relationships.
We know we need to make changes in our life when our life is not bringing us joy, happiness, inner peace, physical vitality and a sense of “aliveness.” But, who wants to do the arduous work of making changes? Is it easier to just accept things as they are or is it better to begin to take an honest inventory […]

The nervous system is important in transmitting messages between the brain and the body. Most people have experienced nerve pain, if only from a dental injection or from an electric shock, so everyone knows that nerve pain can be very sharp, unexpected and unpleasant.
Nerves have the reputation for being “delicate,” so the idea of performing manual therapy upon nerve tissue may seem likely to cause some harm. Nerves are seen as “delicate” because of their sensitivity, the ability to detect energy changes and produce sensations of all kinds. On the structural level nerves are well supported and protected by connective […]
Dr. Wanda Bedinghaus has an interesting and important discussion with Dr. Joan Sloss about the preventative power of frequent lymphatic message. Dr. Sloss discusses how lymphatic massage can help people remain healthy even when they are repeatedly exposed to colds and flu. Lymphatic massage can also help people who are having surgery, before and after the procedure to clear the toxic anesthesia used.
Lymphatic massage is a very relaxing experience and enhances a sense of well-being and calm. It is a gently process and that stimulates the lymphatic system to clean out harmful toxins. Adequate water is highly recommended after this […]
Medical massage treatment given to a cooperative patient who makes helpful lifestyle changes can restore a fibromyalgia patient to healthy living.
I am a physician dedicated to assisting my patients in gaining the highest level of health possible. I love my work; I love the people I serve. I have been in the profession of medicine for over 4 decades. I’ve tried to grow and learn new approaches to helping people heal.
Fourteen years ago I finally made the decision to practice holistic medicine. I discovered homeopathy, a most amazing scientific method of healing, and have been practicing homeopathy ever since. I have not been able to help everyone who comes to see me. A few months ago I wrote a […]
Therapists and patients need to learn how to work with the mind-body so we can heal chronic muscle and joint pain. The mind-body creates health, resists disease, withstands stress and continuously renews itself when it is supported with healthy living and holistic therapies.
Patients need to develop self-awareness, self-responsibility and self-support. Positive psychology boosts our ability to heal and become whole. Therapists need to observe the body closely and this means relying on information garnered from thorough palpation of soft tissues.
We need to pay attention to our bodies, to discover how we are limited and stuck in negative habits. You become […]
As a homeopathic physician, in spite of due diligence in finding the most helpful homeopathic remedy, sometimes the patients I see don’t have the healing response that I expected. I ask myself why? According to Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, in the Organon of Medicine, “…if the physician, in each case, knows the obstacles to cure and how to remove them, so that recovery is permanent, then he knows how to treat thoroughly and efficaciously, and a is a true physician.”
In our modern world, the list of “obstacles to cure” are growing fast. Let’s take a look at a few of these:
