Why I chose HeartLight Wellness ...
Dr. Dougherty treats the whole person, not just your immediate symptoms. In my case, she has treated female problems, chronic pain, high blood pressure, cholesterol, insomnia, and any number of transient issues.
I consider Irene and John (Irene's partner John Brady, Ph.D.) friends who have helped me be strong, be healthy, and be in charge or the first time in years. I am fit, blood pressure is way down, and I sleep well. They treat me with care, compassion, and respect. J.L.
FIVE ELEMENT ACUPUNCTURE
Five-Element Acupuncture, also referred to as the “five-phase” theory by some practitioners, is a highly specialized practice which is used only by a select group of Doctors of Oriental Medicine, like HeartLight Wellness's Dr. Irene Dougherty.
Five-Element Acupuncture is one of the most comprehensive and significant diagnostic, treatment, and healing therapies of Chinese medicine, and it concentrates on balancing the inner and outer nature of a person to heal disease – including physical and emotional challenges.
HeartLight Wellness Patients may also choose twice the healing power by adding optional hypnotherapy to their treatment at no additional cost - Dr. John Brady, is one of only a few Doctor of Clinical Hypnotherapy (DCH) in Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico. When hypnotherapy are combined with acupuncture they treat the physical and sub-conscious factors causing pain, allergies, digestion, and stress in the body facilitating long-term health and healing benefits (usually 6-10 treatments)
If you suffer any conditions like
