Dainna Pearlman, CHC, AADP, AFMC Certified - Director, Head Health Coach

Most people know they should be trying to live a healthier life, but need support getting there. Health is not just a lack of dis-ease, it is about vitality, balance and joy.

 

After having my gallbladder removed several years ago, I struggled with many digestive problems. Allopathic medicine only offered pharmaceuticals (along with many side effects) to treat this. I declined, and instead began rebuilding my digestive and immune systems through a focus on my inner ecology, a healthy diet, and stress reduction.

 

We focus on clinical nutrition, functional medicine, and body science to help determine the root cause of dis-ease in the body. You will learn to become an active participant in achieving and maintaining your good health. My team and I also run group holistic health programs, and present lectures on various health and wellness topics. We love spreading the word about good health and nutrition!

 

Dainna also holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Adelphi University and is certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. Drawing on this knowledge, we will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.

 

Dainna is a graduate of - and educator at - the School of Applied Functional Medicine.

I believe that "dis-ease" is an imbalance. When we learn how to bring the balance back into our body, then we can turn illness into wellness.

Christine Eidinoff, LMT - Massage Therapist

I believe most of us are living in a state of sympathetic dominance (fight or flight response) due to stressful lives. Massage as part of a health regimen can help break this cycle, bringing the body into a state where healing can begin.

 

Through my commitment to continued education and a focus on my own personal growth and healing, I aim to act as a partner in empowering clients to find their own solutions for leading rewarding and fulfilling lives.

 

Utilizing a holistic approach, Christine is able to blend the most effective techniques for a thoroughly healing and relaxing experience.

 

Christine's certifications include: Ayurvedic Bodyworker, Certified Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Center, Reflexologist, Prenatal, and Reiki practitioner.
