Anne Bard is a local resident and a Flower Essence Practitioner. She was certified in 2008 through the British Institute of Homeopathy. Flower essences are used with moods and emotions as an effective way to work alongside an individual who is striving to overcome obstacles in their ways of thinking or short-term crisis. She carries over 230 varieties which include the North American, Australian and Bach Flower Essences. Over the last 5 years, Anne has become familiar with the essences as she worked with family and friends, and a few outside referrals. Through this practice she learned to "know" that they are effective and do bring about good results for people. They are safe, gentle, without side effects or withdrawal, easy to use and inexpensive.

Dr. Lindsay Mack has a deep passion for natural healing and personal development, which led her to chiropractic. However, before beginning chiropractic school, a severe anxiety disorder caused her to search for answers about her life. She began studying the "gurus" of health, happiness, and success, and completely healed herself naturally. After mastering these concepts and seeing the internal struggle in others, she decided to begin teaching them with her clients one-on-one to facilitate the process of growth in his or her journey. She identifies the specific barrier of each client, which generally causes frustration, sadness, and/or anger. She teaches them how to remove the barrier and replace them with supportive, loving belief systems, or new foundations, from which to experience life. You can find more information on her website. Also, look out for Dr. Lindsay's classes at All Things Food!
