April 14, 2016
This week begins a new series of shows that will look closely at some of the exciting advancements that are happening in the fields of medicine, healthcare and wellness. There are many reasons to be optimistic about how our overall health can now be sustained, and how diseases can be addressed, that include new thinking and new discoveries. Some conditions that even 10 years ago would have been considered serious can now be managed through readily available drugs or changes in habits that are fully within our control.
We begin with a look at some of the ways that Eastern and Western medicine are working together to achieve improved results. Our guest, Heather Peterman, will discuss how she has worked with acupuncture and other Eastern treatments in combination with the work of doctors in a traditional hospital setting with great outcomes.
Heather Peterman is board certified and licensed in the state of Wisconsin as an Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine from The Midwest College of Oriental Medicine. She is currently a candidate for her Doctoral degree in Oriental Medicine.
In working with clients, it is Heather’s goal to provide a quality of care that is designed to enable the patient’s natural ability to heal and return to their optimal level of wellness. The goal of Acupuncture is to restore balance, increase circulation, decrease inflammation and nourish the body’s soft tissue and organs. Heather combines these principles with orthopedic massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial therapy, and nutritional counseling in order to provide holistic and comprehensive care.
In addition to her work in clinical practice Heather Peterman owns Sana Healing. She is dedicated to the advancement of her profession and the development of new practitioners.
