Maria Hunter 

NUTRITIONAL THERAPIST

 

Maria graduated with her Nutritional Therapy Certification in 2014 from the Nutritional Therapy Association in Olympia, Washington.  She has also worked closely with Dr. Cori training in Nutritional Response testing.

 

Maria has been on her own journey to health. As a child, she suffered from chronic fatigue, mood swings, achy joints, eczemia, digestion issues, frequent heachaces, and insomnia. After years of doctors and different drugs, her mother found a chiropractor who used Nutritional Response testing. He was able to find specific foods that were causing the symptoms she was suffering from and recommended a nutritional protocol to help start the healing process. Since then Maria has been on the road to recovery. "It has been a dream of mine to share my story with others who suffer, so that they may experience true physical health."- Maria Hunter, NTP

Bruce Varadi, LMP

MASSAGE THERAPIST

 

Bruce's 33 years career in masonry construction came to an end with a debilitating workplace injury. The usual medical remedies provided no relief from crippling and unrelenting pain. On the recommendation of a friend, Bruce tried therapeutic massage and experienced relief from the very first treatment. As he progressed through his recovery, he realized his only path forward was a new career in massage therapy.

 

Since 2007, Bruce has been utilizing gentle neuromuscular techniques like Trigger Point Therapy, Structural Relief Therapy, and Manual Ligament Therapy to help patients achieve greater mobility and freedom from pain.
