Lucinda Sayre, CMT, CTHom
Lucinda Sayre, CMT, Certified Massage Therapist and CTHom, Certified Trained Homeopath, has been practicing massage therapy since 1992 and still loves massage.
She has experience doing many types of body work including sports massage, deep tissue, the Trager approach and Lomi Lomi and often uses hot stones and aromatherapy in her work.
Lucinda is also a Certified Trained Homeopath practicing Classical Homeopathy.
The homeopathic approach was first discovered by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the late 1700's in Germany. He discovered that "the most therapeutic substances were those that could cause the most similar symptoms if taken by a healthy person. Homeo means similar. Pathy means suffering. Similar Suffering. The basic principle in Homeopathy is to find a substance that has the ability to cause suffering in a healthy person and then use that substance energetically (in an infinitesimal dose) to help a person who is suffering in a similar fashion".
Classical Homeopathy is sometimes referred to as Spiritual Homeopathy.
In a session, Lucinda works with clients to learn "what's asking to be healed?" through compassionate curiosity, observation and inquiry into their physical, emotional and mental symptoms and complaints. This process of discovery during a session is itself a healing journey. A homeopathic remedy most appropriate for the individual is then chosen based on classical homeopathic principles.
No homeopathic remedies are/were ever tested on animals.
Since homeopathic remedies have no chemical toxicity, they are safe for everyone including infants, children, pregnant women, and seniors as well as wild or domestic animals.
