Health Professionals in Waltham
“I am a Registered Dietitian and nutrition therapist. My specialty is working with food problems and eating disorders, as well as nutrition for the prevention of illness. I work with a Health At Every Size and Non-Diet approach. Diets don't work, but tuning into your body's signals of hunger and fullness does work. I am a Motivational Interviewing trainer, working with other health care providers to learn the skills of MI. These 2 approaches, HAES and MI work beautifully together, and enhance the power of both to help people change their behavior about their health.
“Although trained in many modalities, Brenda specializes in Orthobionomy- a gentle style of massage that unwinds and lengthens short, tight, painful muscles and connective tissue. It gives you the effect of deep tissue massage without deep pressure or discomfort, leaving you feeling relaxed and comfortable.
“"Five Element acupuncture is the foundation and backbone of my practice. This is an elegant and beautiful system of medicine that helps people heal and maintain balance at a deep level. Each person has an innate healing ability. By listening and gathering information about a person's life I can help to stimulate their own healing potential and guide them towards balance and health. I also encourage lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise. In addition to Five Element acupuncture I incorporate Dr Tan's Balance Method and Zero Balancing, a type of bodywork, which balances body energy and structure through touch.
“I have been counseling individuals on healthy eating for over twenty years. My diverse work experience can attest to my extensive knowledge base of nutrition. I provide the support and reassurance needed to make seemingly overwhelming changes achievable. My expert guidance will help you to make the positive lifestyle changes you need to adopt a healthier living plan. My office is open Monday through Saturday with additional evening appointments, four days a week. It's a great opportunity to see a dietitian without having to take extra time off from work.
“Dr. Mavor is a dedicated professional who believes in helping patients empower themselves with respect to their own health status. His personal motto is, "It is better to thrive rather than just survive." His treatment goals are always centered on that basic tenet. His approach is very comprehensive and involves many aspects of his patients' environment including posture, sleep, diet and exercise. He often works closely and collaboratively with other medical professionals to ensure his patients receive the best and most comprehensive care for their needs.
