At the Holistic Health and Anti-Aging Center of Great Neck we have a team approach to Holistic Health Care. Very often a patient will come for a nutritional consultation and find that they can also benefit from a session of Swedish or Oriental Massage.
As individual practitioners of healing work we are united in the concept of the integration of body, mind, and spirit. Our many years of experience in our fields with each others' work allow us to offer a team approach to a patient's well being. Our founders and colleagues have worked together for almost twenty years. Last year we combined our resources and talents to create The Holistic Health and Anti-Aging Center of Great Neck.
Our healing staff members are:
