She is happy to bring her unique experience in healthcare to her patients. Cindi worked in western medicine for 26 years, starting out as a CNA doing private duty, then opening an Adult Care Home and eventually going into chronic & acute hemodialysis. After graduating in Nebraska from Bellevue University with a Bachelors degree in Healthcare Managment, Cindi was introduced to Healing Touch & Acupuncture. She started receiving weekly treatments for back pain and was amazed at how effective the treatments were. This sparked her interest in learning more about integrative & holistic health.
Beginning Acupuncture school in Denver, CO at the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine, she then transferred to the Arizona School of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine in Tucson and graduated with a Master's Degree in Acupuncture with additional certification in Cosmetic Acupuncture and Tui-Na.

Cindi has learned that the body has a natural desire to function in a healthy state & a natural ability to heal itself given the right environment. By treating the body physically, emotionally, spiritually & energetically, the body can then thrive and achieve a state of complete health.
When nature has work to be done, she creates a genius to do it...

Carissa West LMT
Holistic Health Coach
My journey to becoming a Holistic Health Coach, Massage Therapist, Reiki Master, and a source for the highest quality essential oils began similarly to most people’s careers. After earning my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology in 1999 at Eastern Connecticut State University, I worked in my field for a few years and started having health issues. Traditional medicine failed to get to the root of the problems or give relief. This led me to explore alternative therapies which helped relieve my symptoms. Soon, I realized my purpose is to provide relief to others through offering holistic solutions to health issues so many people are suffering from.
I first obtained certification in Reiki I, II, and Advanced with Jocelyn Lebowitz. In 2005, I completed Spa Massage Therapy training through the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy. I am licensed by the state of Arizona, a member of the American Massage Therapy Association, and certified by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork. My training as a Reiki Master was completed with Deborah Corbett in 2008. I continue to expand my massage education regularly as mandated by the Arizona Massage Board.
I fell in love with both Reiki and Massage Therapy.

Naomi has been interested in health and wellness screening for over 30 years. She has been using HTMA to monitor her supplement requirements and over the last 8 years has been using Thermography as her main screening method for breast health. Naomi has a B.A. from the University of Iowa from the School of Journalism and Communication. Ever since Naomi was told at her very first mammography appointment that they could not read her images and they wanted her to do another mammogram she has had the desire to find a screening method that fit her lifestyle yet was effective and cost efficient. It made no sense to her as to why would they do another mammogram if they can’t read it. When asking what other options are out there, they told her ultrasound but ONLY if she did another mammogram. She then had a 6-week fight with the clinic to allow her to do an ultrasound without the additional mammogram and finally they said okay. She found out she had fibrocystic breast tissue which made reading her mammogram difficult to say the least. She decided then, there had to be a better way to screen breasts, that is when she discovered Thermography! It’s radiation-free, no contact and a possible 8-10 year early detection of physiological indicators of breast cancer. She was ready for this safe, adjunctive screening method. As Naomi went through training and learned there were even more potential uses for medical Thermology she decided it was time to share this knowledge and service with others.
