NEWS and EVENTS
Here's what's new at Holistic Healing Center!
We want to welcome Michal Shelton RDN LDN to our Holistic Healing Center Team!
The practice searched for another RD and we decided on someone who, like Faith, is passionate about Functional Medicine and treats the whole person with care and compassion.
We are excited and pleased to announce that Michal Shelton, RDN, LDN, is now joining our team. Michal's passion for nutrition, love of learning combined with strong clinical skills, ability to really listen with compassion and insight, and creative problem-solving abilities related to working in a variety of clinical settings complement the Doctor perfectly. Michal is warm and very compassionate and really cares about making a difference with those she serves. She thrives on working in coordination with the rest of our team to provide the best possible support for the patients. Our goal is that she will be able to support you with diet and lifestyle modifications and offer you that extra time and TLC you may need to achieve your optimal health and wellbeing.
You can read her bio on the Lifestyle Support Page.
Michal works in coordination with Dr. Debbie Bernstein and Debbie Garlits our Patient Advocate.
We want to say farewell to Faith Lumpkin RDN, LDN
Some of you had the privilege of meeting or working with Faith Lumpkin, our Integrative Functional Nutritionist. Faith, more recently since Covid-19, has been working with patients remotely part-time and also working in Philadelphia in the inpatient setting supporting those in need. She will be continuing in that role on a full-time basis and we want to applaud her for her service to patients in the in-patient setting during this time.
On July 31st 2020 the American Board of Physician Specialties announced that Dr. Bernstein had met all requirements to be considered Board Certified in Integrative Medicine. The Doctor sat for the Integrative Board exam back in June of this year. In addition, she has a Masters in Bio-Nutrition and is boarded in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. She is also an IFM Certified Practitioner from the Institute for Functional Medicine. She loves to learn. Functional Medicine creates a framework for looking at root causes and Integrative Medicine provides guidance as to what types of therapies have the best research for a given issue and looks at treating the mind, body and spirit, which is so important to her.
She looks forward to applying what she continues to learn in treating her patients and hopes she can make a difference in the quality of life for those she serves.
On May 1, 2019, Reflexologist, Jeanne Kane joined our team!
Jeanne is very caring and wants her clients to get the most from their Reflexology session. She takes into account the client’s goals and health concerns to foster a positive experience. She believes that the body has the capacity to heal itself in many cases and that reflexology is one type of bodywork that facilitates that healing. Her strong belief in the various healing aspects of reflexology include- stress relief, pain relief, working with the peripheral nervous system, moving lymph, and body map on feet.
Jeanne is a long-time Bucks County resident who is a loving wife, mother and grandmother.
Jeanne received her Reflexology certification from Essential Connections in Quakertown. She is also a Reiki Practitioner, and as such can incorporate Reiki into a Reflexology session.
