New England Holistic Heath Center we practice complimentary
medicine, using natural remedies and treatments along with
traditional prescription medications when necessary. Our clients are
the children, adults, and seniors of our community and they and
their needs are as diverse as the services we offer.
Long before wellness and holistic health became buzz words of the
new Millennium, we responded to the community’s need for an
alternative approach to traditional medicine, opening New England
Holistic Health Center in 1985. Nearly two decades later, we remain
committed to our vision of offering health care to people of all
ages in a professional, caring environment. In a typical day, we
might treat a family grieving the loss of a loved one, a teacher who
was a little too enthusiastic about her first time out on the ski
slopes, and a child whose parents are seeking alternative treatment
for his or her attention deficit disorder. We are “in it for the
long haul” with our clients and often end up seeing members of three
generations of a family through the years. Please feel free to visit
the different areas of our website and find out more about us.

Healing the Body...
Exploring the Mind...
Nurturing the Spirit
ago, before anyone used the term “holistic,” doctors lived in the
communities they served. They knew their patients, their histories,
their lifestyles and their hardships, and often treated entire
families. Now, we live in a technological, stressful society and
often doctors are not afforded the opportunity to get to know their
patients. Many physicians no longer treat the whole person, but are
medical experts in one specific body system. We all understand that
stress affects the body, yet there only seems to be time to treat a
single symptom, organ or system.
At New England Holistic Health Center, we get to know our patients.
We acknowledge physical and emotional interconnections. We recognize
the need to treat the whole person, not just the ailment. We also
recognize the importance in challenging patients to summon their own
healing forces. Through our treatments plans, we work with patients,
empowering them to use these internal forces to promote their own
health or to complement more conventional treatment. Life is often
difficult and frustrating. Let us help you gain control of your
health and well-being.
The Pleasurable Secret
a reason yoga feels so good, better than, say, an intense cardio
workout or shopping therapy. Doing yoga reduces levels of the
hormone cortisol, which typically rise in response to stress.
Researchers at the Center for Integrative Medicine at Thomas
Jefferson University in Philadelphia measured cortisol levels in 16
healthy adults before and after yoga classes during a weeklong
series of classes. Even after the first yoga class, levels of the
“stress hormone” fell.
The study was presented at the 85th Annual
Meeting of the Endocrine Society in Philadelphia on June 21, 2003.
