" The Doctors in our clinic confidently referred patients to Meggen ranging in age from their early 20s up to their 90's, and experiencing a host of complex medical conditions. Meggen thoroughly and carefully supported each of their unique medical conditions.
I definitely saw a reduction in my patients' compensatory patterns and a more positive state of mind."
Dr. Ken George, DC
Dr. Ken George and Associates, P.A.
dba NH Chiros
" I have seen a considerably faster decrease in pain and inflammation symptoms when Meggen and I both treated my patients during the same care plan timeframe.
Providing complementary therapies with a 'team-care' approach for clients is an outstanding, well-rounded Naturopathic healthcare service for people seeking an effective and lasting way
to feel better faster."
Lisa Rothermich, Lic.Ac.
Director, Gentle Currents Acupuncture Clinic
" As a profession, we have been pleased
at the response of doctors who say
"I don't have the time and resources to address the real underlying stressors for my patients"
"I didn't know yoga therapy addressed so many layers of mind-body health"
Yoga Therapists are knowledgeable in the language of various health professions and can seamlessly assist the patient's current team of health care advisors."
Julie Rost, C-IAYT

The traditional medical community is embracing the positive results of yoga and movement therapy more than ever thanks in great part to powerful clinical research studies.
