Your Wellness Plan will include a nutritional program, as well as safe and effective natural medicines, such as herbs, nutrients, or homeopathic medicines.

First Name: Cassandra
Business Phone: (612)564-8714
Short Business Description: Cassandra Rose, L.Ac. is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist with specialties in Macular Regeneration, and Community Family Medicine.
Long Business Description:

Cassandra began to study acupuncture after receiving treatment at a school clinic in San Francisco, CA. Her experience with acupuncture inspired her to change her whole life for the better. As an artist, Cassandra had always tried to create healing moments in the world. Acupuncture feels like a natural and direct extension of that creative desire.

After earning her Master’s degree in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine she went on to study in the Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program at the California Institute of Integral Studies before moving to the Twin Cities. She has completed internships in Family Medicine, TCM Oncology, and Macular Regeneration. Some of the most respected practitioners in the world have been her teachers.

Cassandra is an experienced acupuncturist who has given more than 12,000 acupuncture treatments in her career. She has helped patients with seasonal and esoteric alignment, allergies, stress, anxiety, depression, grief, digestion, oncology side effects, reproductive health, immune support, the common cold, injury recovery, pain management, and more

It was divine happenstance that brought Cassandra to the Macular Regeneration path. She was asked by a patient to study the Macular Regeneration protocol. After an extensive internship with the acupuncturist who pioneered this program in the Twin Cities Cassandra was able to continue his practice.

The program proved to be a source of constant excitement and inspiration for Cassandra. Not only does the process spark her professional curiosity with its effectiveness but it is deeply moving to witness the effect it has on patient’s lives. How could she not be moved by being allowed to help people keep seeing, keep working, keep reading, keep living independent lives? It is a privilege to offer this powerful method to bring hope to folks with degenerative eye diseases.

Macular Regeneration is a program that uses Acunova and Micro-Acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, microcurrent therapy, herbs, supplements, and lifestyle to address degenerative eye diseases such as macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, Stargardt’s, conjunctivitis, post-herpetic eye pain, dry eye, and more. It is effective in slowing, stopping, or improving vision loss and degeneration.

The program starts with a group of closely scheduled appointments. Then an ongoing weekly or biweekly schedule to maintain progress. Each appointment is 2 thirty-minute treatments back to back. There are no needles in the eyes. The primary points are in the hands and feet. Treatment with Cassandra is a deeply relaxing healing experience.

Short Business Description: I help people with chronic pain learn new ways to manage their pain, overcome traumatic experiences, and create lives they want to live. I use clinical hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, and Prolonged Exposure therapy as tools to help people move past pain and trauma. I practice in my office in St. Paul, MN, and I also offer online counseling via direct video conferencing throughout Minnesota.
Long Business Description:

Most of the people I see in psychotherapy have chronic pain and have experienced trauma. Sometimes the trauma is the direct physiological source of the pain, such as in the case of a car accident or physical abuse. Other times the trauma involves a pattern of chronic stress, such as a difficult childhood or abusive relationship, and the connection between the trauma and the pain is less straightforward. In both situations, addressing what has happened and working to process those trauma memories can help to reduce anxiety, stress, other trauma-related symptoms, as well as physical pain. By addressing trauma in the context of chronic pain, people are able to access their internal healing resources, resolve emotional barriers to wellness, and learn alternative pain management techniques to get back to their lives.

I am passionate about using evidence-based psychotherapy to help people treat the often-overlooked emotional side of their pain and get back to the lives they want to live. I graduated from The College of St. Catherine/University of St. Thomas School of Social Work in 2009 with my Master's Degree in Social Work (MSW). I have a Masters of Arts degree in Germanic Languages and Literatures from Yale University, and I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Grinnell College majoring in German with a concentration in Linguistics. I am a Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, a certified Prolonged Exposure Therapist, have completed EMDRIA-approved training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, and I have completed over 70 hours of training and supervision in clinical hypnosis.

As a health coach, when I meet with a client, I see a whole person who possesses the inner resources necessary to shift themselves into their optimal healing state. My role as a coach is to assist and support them as they mobilize internal and external resources and take productive steps toward reaching this state. This typically involves discovering what this healing state means for the client, envisioning and exploring this healing state, and planning and taking next steps toward reaching this state. The client role is not to take orders from me or do what I tell them. The client’s role is to actively reach into themselves and, with their coach at their side, co-create and own their unique transformation process.
I hold a Masters Degree in Integrative Health and Wellbeing Coaching from the University of Minnesota's Earl E.

Short Business Description: My clients are busy men and women who have tried many diets, but haven't experienced long-term, sustainable weight loss. They are people who believe in eating whole foods and are open to making changes in their lives so that they may live with more joy and freedom.
Long Business Description:

For over 10 years, I have supported people who have an understanding of what foods are good for them, but they don't apply this knowledge on a regular basis. Sadly, they feel shameful for knowing what to eat to be healthy, but not able to consistently apply their knowledge. My clients don't lack willpower, they lack an ability to handle their intense lives and uncomfortable emotions. Most people eat processed foods to numb their feelings (whether they consciously realize this or not). Emotional eating is a symptom, it's not the root cause. Holistic nutrition therapy offers you the emotional support you need to discover and heal the reasons you reach for low-quality food. I believe that whole foods from nature are medicine for the body and that there is no perfect way of eating.

First Name: Denise
Business Phone: 612-730-2237
Long Business Description:

Denise is an occupational therapist who has over 35 years of experience, treating adults and children with sensory processing disorders.
Denise is a licensed occupational therapist, with a certification in Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests (C-SIPT) and extensive training in varied sensory based intervention techniques. She is a techniques-level certified CranioSacral Practitioner with advanced and pediatric training in CranioSacral Therapy. Denise has served as a teaching assistant for multiple CranioSacral Therapy courses provided by the Upledger Institute.

Denise started her career in pediatrics, working in a group home for children with disabilities. This is where she started her journey working with people on the Autism Spectrum. The first child she treated sparked a fascination and a deep desire to understand how they were processing the world around them, and how to facilitate improved ability to engage and find joy. As her career progressed, she found herself working with more and more children on the spectrum, witnessing the alarming increase in ASD diagnoses and constantly seeking more and improved ways to work with these children.

In the mid to late 1980's, Denise became the first full time occupational therapist at Exceptional Children with Communication and Interaction Disorders, the autism day treatment program that was part of Children's Hospitals and Clinics - Minneapolis, and that later became part of Fraser Child and Family Services, establishing the occupational therapy program. She also had the opportunity to work on a multi-disciplinary team providing evaluations to children from the 5 state area and Canada and making recommendations for appropriate programming and intervention for those children. Later, as a staff therapist for Children's Minneapolis, she provided outpatient services for children with many diagnoses and conditions, but always having children on the spectrum comprising the majority of her caseload.

When Denise moved to Indiana from 1998 to 2005, she worked in the First Steps Program, providing services to children birth to 3 years of age. This position offered many opportunities to work with children and their families or caregivers in the natural setting. She also provided contract services to a school district, providing services for their most challenging students that had not responded to traditional program planning.

Upon her return to Minnesota, Denise began working at a local outpatient clinic that provides speech and language and occupational therapy services to address sensory processing disorders. Over the course of her 13 year tenure, she began to treat more adults, starting with those referred for eating disorders with a suspected sensory component and gradually working with adults recently diagnosed with ASD, and adolescents and adults with anxiety or PTSD, addressing sensory processing and reflex integration using the MNRI approach. In addition, she began to work with infants with feeding difficulties, torticolis and plagiocephaly, using CranioSacral Therapy techniques. At this time, Denise also began a small private practice in CranioSacral Therapy, working with a sports medicine chiropractor and treating student athletes with concussions, people experiencing migraines and TMJ, chronic neck and back pain and endometriosis.

In early 2018, Denise began traveling and had the opportunity to work in Delaware and Illinois as a staff occupational therapist in low incidence educational settings. These experiences offered opportunities to gain skills in working with children up to age 21 with severe emotional and behavioral challenges, resulting in placement in highly-structured educational settings.

All of these experiences have brought Denise full circle, returning to her home in Minnesota and beginning a new chapter, using all of her experiences to work in a setting that focuses on health and wellness.

Long Business Description:

Mary Flood-Maneely helps individuals and groups find and release the emotional root causes of pain and resentment through the Unconditional Forgiveness process.
Unconditional Forgiveness is a clear, reliable, step-by-step process based in psychology and spirituality that works on the emotional, mental, physical, energetic, and spiritual levels. Many people sense that there is a emotional component to physical pain or illness but don't know how to heal past wounds, events, or relationships. In the fall of 2000, Mary was asked a pivotal question: “Is there something you need to forgive?”. And although her answer was ‘yes’, she realized that she didn’t know specifically what steps to take. Questioning ‘what does forgiving really look like?' brought her to the Midwest Institute for Forgiveness Training in Minneapolis, MN, where she finished a one-year certificate course in the Unconditional Love and Forgiveness model in June, 2002.

After completing an additional year of apprenticeship, Mary became a trainer for the Midwest Institute for Forgiveness Training events, and began teaching classes and workshops and working with individuals on her own. She has taught the Unconditional Forgiveness model and method, in venues ranging from Hazelden Renewal Center to the Minnesota Women’s Correctional Facility (Shakopee); in religious, spiritual, and community centers; and as a guest lecturer at the University of Minnesota Center for Spirituality and Healing.

Mary specializes in helping others release pain, remove obstacles, and find new possibilities. This includes releasing pain and resentments from relationships with the hope of resetting love and good will (i.e., current spouses / significant others, parents, children, friends)--and from relationships, events, situations it's time to let go (including abuse, betrayal, dangerous or inappropriate behavior). The Unconditional Forgiveness model includes components of Forgiving Others and Self-Forgiveness. 'Others' can include anyone or anything that causes angst--individuals living or dead; groups; family or social systems; institutions; social, cultural, or political movements or parties; and the like.

I have been a registered nurse for over 15 years and a nurse practitioner since 2012. I’m interested in partnering with people to help them safely navigate and use the best of what integrative and conventional medicine both have to offer. I provide help with chronic health concerns and guidance on creating wellness plans that will prevent disease, and optimize health and vitality. I'm passionate about: using food as medicine and exploring how stress, sleep, spirituality, relationships and the environment are all connected to health and what to do about it. A challenge of my career I enjoy is: deeply listening to the whole story and discovering what factors may be contributing to why someone has a disease or symptoms. Then taking a step further and guiding people through the complexity of making lifestyle changes that will work for them.

The best thing I've done for my health is: to eat more healthy fat and protein, and eliminate a food that was causing symptoms.

Practice philosophy: As an integrative nutritionist, I use "a food as medicine" approach to help people achieve improved health. Whether for general health, or disease prevention or management, I can meet you where you are to work on large or small dietary and lifestyle changes and goal setting.

Best part of my work: Through my experiences with functional and integrative nutrition, I find that patients are much more engaged and excited about taking control of their health.

Why I became a provider: I became an integrative nutritionist because even though I ate healthy and exercised on a regular basis, I still didn't feel that I had great health. After doing more research and finding other like-minded health professionals, I found whole foods and specific supplementation helped me to have more energy, sleep better and have mental clarity. In addition, I have a close family member with ADHD who has been helped greatly through dietary changes, nutrition supplementation, and working with an integrative pediatrician.

Rosen Method bodywork and Movement

Rosen Method bodywork practice gentle, listening meeting touch to bring awareness to unconscious holding in the body. If we have tension when we aren’t actively using our bodies, what is that tension doing for us? We explore this question together noticing sensation, the way we come to the present moment, with support, to be with our most essential selves.
Rosen Movement is a fun, easy going, joint mobilization class. We use music, which stimulates our moving in synchrony to a variety of rhythms. We move in a circle enhancing connection and a sense of community.

Movement Sanctuary
A practice of moving to access the unconscious through the simple form of moving, eyes closed, with a non-judgmental witness, eyes open. We share our own experiences after a movement session, taking great care to know it is our own experience only. Insights, shifts, and resolutions within our bodies and minds are often the result.

I have studied Somatic Experiencing which focuses on trauma resolution by learning to track body sensation and resolution naturally.

I have been practicing touch work since 1984. I have studied many touch and movement modalities over 35 years. I continue to learn and be awed by the miraculous beings we all are. Our body, mind and spirit are interconnected, as is our connection to all life on our planet. It is important to me as white middle class cis gendered woman, to approach the healing of racial, developmental, relational, racial, historical, and sexual trauma through the body. Being able to metabolize/naturally process our body responses enables us to be more present, capable, and resilient in our immediate lives.

I am here by way of my ancestors: Cajun, Norse, Prussian, Belgian, German, + Roma tenant farmers, caretakers, healers, herbalists, nurses, blacksmiths, jewelers, clockmakers, + merchants. I am a queer, non-binary, chronically ill/disabled, multiethnic, southern transplant currently living on occupied Dakhóta + Anishinaabe land in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I spent my childhood in New Orleans, Louisiana (Chickasaw, Chitimacha, + Choctaw Territory) & my adolescence in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin (Anishinaabe, Dakhóta + Ho-Chunk Territories).

My past movement homes have included People’s Movement Center, The Minnesota Transgender Health Coalition, + The HOTDISH Militia Abortion Fund. I am also the Co-Founder of Herbalists for Racial Justice (established 2016) + the Historian, Archivist, + Director of Operations, Accessibility, + Sustainability at SPIRAL Collective (established 2012). I spent a decade working within sexual + domestic violence prevention + advocacy before becoming a Registered Public Health Nurse in 2019.​

My Practice:
I practice under a healing justice framework. As someone with white settler ancestry & who identifies as a non-binary queer witch, this means uplifting femme folks, queer & trans folks, black folks, indigenous folks, & people of color as healers, as well as to center marginalized communities in my practice. I strive to bring my whole self to my clients & meet them where they are at, respecting their decisions, honoring their intuition, & working to co-create a container for them to see themselves as the powerful healers & magic-makers they are. I strive to bring an ethic of communal care to my practice, recognizing that we cannot "self care" our traumas away, & that we do not survive alone.

Sliding Scale Fees & Accessibility:
I utilize a sliding scale fee for almost all of my services. My hope with this approach is that folks who have the financial ability to pay more will pay more and folks who need to pay less will pay less and everything will balance itself out. The sliding scale fee exists for people who have low or no income and/or have limited to no employment. I believe everyone deserves access to the healing they desire & deserve. I highly encourage you to contact me if finances are a barrier to you receiving support​ from me at any time! At times I am able to work outside of my sliding scale on a limited, as-needed basis.

In December of 2018 I graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Nursing's Master of Nursing Program as a Registered Nurse, after 3 years of prerequisites, graduate school coursework, and clinicals.

I offer my services in person as well as through phone or Skype.

Short Business Description: I help people discover Health for Life™ by rebuilding their nutrition at the cellular level, removing toxins/heavy metals/parasites, and repairing their bodies using their Hair Analysis results.
Long Business Description:

True health is not just taking the latest pill, shake or potion. It is about eating foods with the right nutrition according to individualized needs. There is no need to guess or practice. When you know where your mineral levels are, you know what you need to correct. Taking the specific supplementation not only saves money, but also time and energy. When the body is nourished it is able to detoxify heavy metals, toxins such as chemicals, purge parasites, and free radicals that may harbor cancers. By knowing where your true health is, you will know where you need to be and I can show you how to get there.

Many of my clients have not felt heard in regard to their symptoms. I dig deep to discover possible root causes. The hair analysis can be likened to your savings account whereas your blood serum is your checking account. The blood will regulate and do what is necessary to keep you as healthy as possible by depositing excess minerals and heavy metals into the tissue/organs or withdrawing from them. When nutrition stores get low, the blood will eventually have nowhere to draw from. Heavy metals and toxins stay armored in storage for safety but may cause symptoms or be linked to disease so rebalancing is key to detoxification.

Are you ready to start your health journey?

I founded the Snoring and Sleep Apnea Dental Treatment Center in 1992.
Since that time my knowledgeable and caring team and I have been helping patients with snoring and sleep apnea problems. We work closely with the sleep medicine physicians to coordinate your care and improve your sleep and your health. We utilize oral appliance therapy to manage snoring and sleep apnea for patients who are not good candidates or cannot tolerate CPAP. We are one of the few full-time dental sleep medicine practices in the country. Since we have extensive experience in this therapy, we are able to customize the therapy to increase successful results for patients.
We believe our first responsibility is to inform and educate our patients. We review the evaluation findings and explain the risks, benefits, and reasonable expectations of the different treatment options with each patient. We guide patients in deciding which oral appliance will be most effective and comfortable for their situation. Then we work closely with them in follow-up visits to ensure the comfort and effectiveness of their treatment. This comprehensive approach is important to achieving a successful treatment outcome.

The gentle movements and postures gather and circulate our internal energy or Qi so that we can maintain stronger immune systems and a greater sense of inner tranquility. This is especially important if we are faced with chronic, degenerative or life-threatening illnesses. Whatever condition or state of being we find ourselves tai chi and qigong can support us.

Short Business Description: Have musculo-skeletal pain that just won't quit? Let's look at the possible causes. This work wakes up areas that Yoga and other movement modalities don't touch, using your unique structure to access and relieve your compensations. While working on the physical, we access deeper levels, generating a deep relaxation and positive nervous system response.
Long Business Description:

Everyone is unique - completely different, structurally. We have twists and rotations and tensegrital aberrations that can generate habitual patterns . Over time the patterns can cause discomfort and eventually pain that seemingly happens suddenly. In actuality, it has been "brewing" for years or decades. Other times there are more recent or acute causes, such as falls or accidents. I use a three-prong methodology to relax the system and teach the brain/ns to begin to turn toward a new pattern, release the old one, and bring the whole body/mind to a place of increased comfort. The three prongs are The Wallace Method of Nonlinear Movement, Rhythmic Rocking, and Reflex Integration. It's been very effective in treating acute trauma as well, such as falls or car accidents.

What is BreathWork?

BreathWork is a simple, yet powerful process that consistently generates profound physical, emotional & mental self-healing & deepens your connection with Spirit. It is one of the most powerful self-healing modalities on the planet.

In a breath session you activate a high vibrational energy that raises and alters low vibrational energy patterns that are stuck in your electromagnetic field. Breath activates the body's natural healing abilities. As you open up and release your restrictive breathing patterns you will move toward optimal health and wellbeing.

BreathWork can help you to relieve stress, detox your body, increase your energy & vitality, release suppressed/repressed emotions & traumas, clear your mind, and bring more joy and happiness into your life.
