About The Team
Known to her patients as Dr. B, Wanda Bedinghaus, MD, graduated from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas. She received pediatric training at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas. She is licensed to practice medicine in the state of Colorado and has had her own practice for 23 years.
Dr. B practiced pediatrics in Dallas for 14 years. She left the field of medicine for several years to attain ordination as a Unity minister. Moving to Denver in 1992, she practiced pediatrics part-time at The Children’s Hospital Urgent Care Centers for 5 years, while running a church she founded.
In 2002 Dr. Bedinghaus graduated from Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a 3-year training program in classical homeopathy. She practiced classical homeopathy full-time for several years before beginning training in Functional Medicine.
Dr B. has been taking classes through The Institute for Functional Medicine for seven years. She attained certification in Functional Medicine in 2019. She is co-founder of Healing Unleashed in Lakewood where she specializes in digestive disorders, chronic diseases, autoimmune disease, metabolic problems and brain health.
Dr. Joan has practiced Manual Therapy full-time for over 30 years. She trained in bodywork after retiring from a professional dance/choreography career (Philadelphia/Minneapolis). She completed her Doctorate in Human Movement at Temple University (1982).
Dr Joan continues to advance her knowledge and skills in manual therapy by regularly taking classes from The Upledger Institute and from the Barral Institiute. Joan has been working steadily to achieve the highest level of skill in craniosacral therapy.
Dr. Joan started her bodywork career as a licensed massage therapist, with 1,000 hours certification from the Colorado School of Healing Arts (1992). In 2007 Dr Joan completed certifications in 12 levels of medical massage therapy from The Medical Massage Office and Associates (formerly N. Carolina).
Dr Joan co-founded Healing Unleashed where she specializes in reducing and curing chronic myofascial pain. She is almost always successful in restoring integration, balance and good movement function to the human body.
Her two big goals are to heal pain as quickly as possible, and to teach her clients how to stay free of pain.
