I have more than 30 years of experience as a bodywork therapist. The focus of my practice is to apply the methods of CranioSacral Therapy and Myofascial Release to gently resolve structural problems that cause discomfort and/or restrictions in function for my clients. When emotional difficulties arise, I assist clients to develop their awareness of the bodily sensations that always arise with any thought, emotion, or memory. Using sensate awareness provides a source of new information in addition to being a way to prevent overwhelm. For this somatic processing, I trained in the techniques of Hakomi Somatics (now called Sensorimotor Psychotherpy).

Jodi Baglien is considered the Twin Cities “go to” consultant in professional aromatherapy. She has created aromatherapy training programs for hospitals and senior care facilities to implement safe and effective aromatherapy programs in patient/resident care. Jodi offers aromatherapy education onsite, online, and at her studio in Osseo, MN. She is also an adjunct instructor at Normandale Community College.

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.

Catherine Duncan, MA, BCC is a Social-Emotional, and Spiritual Care Provider passionate about whole person healing. With a reverence for exploring the sacredness and meaning of life, she companions each individual on their journey. She helps people navigate chronic illness, life transitions, grief, loss, and finding meaning and purpose. Prior to Newbridge, Catherine served as a spiritual care provider with Fairview Home Care and Hospice and HCMC.
Catherine’s passion is helping individuals unpack the emotional and spiritual roots that underlie an illness or chronic infection. She companions each individual and together they unpack the story behind an illness and determine appropriate next steps. Building inner strength and resilience may also include working with a particular healing modality. Catherine is an ordained minister, a board-certified chaplain, spiritual director, energy healer, and tapping (EFT) practitioner who works extensively with mind-body therapies and aromatherapy.
Newbridge Health & Wellness’ mission is to provide the highest quality healthcare using a personalized, holistic, natural and functional medicine approach in order to promote optimal health and healing for infants, children, and adults in a caring and supportive manner.
Our vision is that holistic, integrative, biomedical, and functional medicine will be available and accessible to all, regardless of income, ethnicity, or education level, and that patients will be optimally supported in making healthy lifestyle changes. We value helping and caring, patient and family-centered progressive care, integrity, respect, and teamwork.
Newbridge Health & Wellness’ practitioners have received advanced training through the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), MN Holistic Medicine Group, the Autism Research Institute (ARI), the Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs (MAPS), International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) and many other sources, and incorporate a variety of integrative approaches for managing the unique and varying underlying health issues of each individual.
We also offer elimination diets and/or testing to help uncover food sensitivities and counsel you on the dietary changes necessary to treat many chronic health conditions. This testing and dietary protocol have been extremely effective in helping those with ADHD, Autism, IBS, chronic diarrhea, heartburn/GERD, fibromyalgia, arthritis, joint pain, mental health concerns, muscle pain, weight imbalances, chronic fatigue, chronic sinusitis, insomnia, skin eruptions and more. In treating these conditions holistically, we also offer additional health therapies such as Frequency Specific Microcurrent therapy and Low Dose Immunotherapy and Allergen Therapy.
If you are curious about Newbridge, new to integrative medicine, or seeking extra support / more information about potential treatments, we also offer educational classes, support groups, and Q&A groups to help foster support and healing for individuals and families working towards optimal health.
My practice is based out of the People’s Movement Center as well as my home office. I practice under a healing justice framework. As someone with white settler ancestry & who identifies as a non-binary, queer, chronically ill witch, this means uplifting femmes, queer & trans folks, black folks, indigenous folks, people of color, and folks with disabilities as healers, as well as to center these communities in my practice. I strive to bring my highest self to my work & I meet my clients 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. I have 13 years of experience of working with survivors of sexual and domestic violence as an advocate, trainer, and program coordinator. During those same 13 years I have also been a reproductive justice organizer.
In December of 2018 I will graduate 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.

“Ayurveda” is the ancient science of harmonious living and longevity. It is a practical, common-sense way to bring health and vitality to the body and a state of balance and wellbeing to the mind. These changes come through the use of nutritious foods, herbs, oils and changes in one’s lifestyle. The 5,000-year-old holistic, indigenous medical system of Ayurveda treats the whole person by focusing on healing at the root cause of disease or imbalances.
But what about the continuing day-to-day discomforts that we all experience – painful symptoms for which there seems to be no relief and no answer? – or some remedy works for a while and then stops working? We go to several doctors, but to no avail. Sound familiar?
From an Ayurvedic perspective, these symptoms are likely related to one root cause, which is an imbalance in one or more of the three doshas, or bodily humors – Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
How can Ayurveda help me? From Acne to Zoster and everything in between, Ayurveda provides a support. Common imbalances include: anxiety, constipation, digestion, depression, fatigue, GERD, hair loss, high cholesterol, hyper/hypo blood pressure, joint pain, fertility, inflammation, insomnia, IBS, menopausal transition, PMS, sleep, stress, thyroid and adrenal, and more.
If you’d like to feel better, if you want to learn how you can take charge of your health and well-being, contact Veena at Saumya Ayurveda. She will look at you as a whole person, an entire multifaceted personality consisting of mind, body and spirit – not as a set of symptoms. Through careful listening, your concerns, and goals will be understood and addressed at the source, and then you will be provided with tools to bring health and vitality into your life.
To your health and peace,
Veena Haasl-Blilie, MA, CAP, CAE, Certified Yoga Meditation Teacher

“My intention is to support you in moving forward at your comfortable pace, to integrate your Saumya Ayurveda plan into your daily life.” – Veena
“As a physician, I have always believed ‘Prevention is better than cure.’ In an era of spiraling health care costs, it was an eye-opener to learn, during meditation, that all the diseases start in the mind. I am very hopeful, that by using the body as a tool to train the mind that I can influence my health and destiny. Ayurveda is the logical and natural solution. I started working with Veena at a time when I was at the end of my tether, juggling my professional and personal aspirations. She responded to my desperate call and went out of her way to find ways to work things into with my busy schedule.
For the initial treatment, to pull me back from the brink, I was treated with Veena’s oils, teas and herbs. I took to all these products like a fish to the water. I could feel myself turn the corner and all my symptoms of fatigue, sleeplessness, joint aches and incessant worry of gaining weight improved immediately. I lost weight without even lifting my little finger.
I was encouraged to pursue a steady approach to create lasting changes. Now when I see my patients, I see so many suffering from similar symptoms related to diet and stress. I see so much need for our whole society to incorporate Ayurveda in their lives. I have routed several of my patients to Saumya-Ayurveda. It is a blessing to have such a rich resource.
I am eternally grateful to Veena at Saumya Ayurveda for anchoring me to my present state of health and peacefulness and for helping me to embark on a path towards the balance we all are striving for. Thank you so much.” — Gauri Nagargoje, M.D.

Trudy Ohnsorg and Ellen Benavides are co-founders of Well Linker. This organization is incorporated in Minnesota as a Public Benefit Corporation. Well Linker’s specific benefit is to “help people make informed choices about holistic medicine.”
Well Linker will create a web-based tool to allow people to systematically share their stories about their experiences with holistic therapies, revealing patterns of success and failure that will become a guide for individuals searching for healing, and will provide direction for future clinical research for promising therapies.
At Wellness with Claudine, I teach women with digestive and other health concerns how to support and nourish themselves with whole foods nutrition, holistic lifestyle choices, and other natural remedies so they can regain their vitality, ditch the fatigue, and experience fewer symptoms.
I believe the foundation of health is a well-functioning digestive system, and I especially enjoy working with people who need to rebuild their gut integrity – those suffering from digestive distress and food sensitivities.
I offer innovative and integrative solutions that focus on preventing disease and promoting health through small, manageable steps. I believe taking care of ourselves can be an enjoyable process, and it is always my goal to bring joy and laughter to my clients’ sessions.
