~ In Memory ~

8/8/79 - 3/25/16


Dr. Erica Calcagno was a Massachusetts native and relocated to the great state of New Hampshire to pursue a chiropractic associate position at Awakening Chiropractic.  She obtained her B.S in Exercise Physiology from UMASS and her Doctorate in Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA, graduating magna cum-laude with clinical excellence awards from both colleges.  Dr. Erica completed over 250 hours of continuing education involving the care of pediatric and pregnant populations including adjusting technique, diagnosis, neurosensory integration, neuroimmunity, neurology and research. She was issued a Certification from the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics (C.A.C.C.P.) from the Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice and is Webster Technique Certified (a chiropractic technique that balances the maternal pelvis to allow for ideal fetal positioning). Her passion was always focused on helping families understand the power of Chiropractic and the role it can play in maintaining their overall health and wellness.  Dr. Erica was a proud and loving mother of three beautiful children, Eliana, Kai and Olivia.  She was fortunate to have had three amazing home births, and adjusted all of her kids since they were just hours old! 

 
Dr. Erica was engaged in a powerful personal journey towards optimal health from the moment she was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer in January of 2015.  Her journey took her through an abundance of holistic and alternative cancer treatments as well as what conventional healthcare has to offer.  While Dr. Erica’s battle was fought with grace and an open heart, she passed away just thirteen months after her initial diagnosis.  Her strength, determination, and willingness to lead us all, will always be with us.

LMT, Craniosacral Therapist, Reiki Master

Sylvie Chamberlin graduated from NorthEast Institute of Whole Health in 2002 and has been practicing massage therapy for over 12 years. She has experience working in a variety of settings providing Massage Therapy services for clients of all ages. Before becoming a Massage Therapist, Sylvie worked as an Occupational Therapist for 13 years working in a hospital, clinical, and home settings. Along with teaching her clients the importance of self care, she began to receive training in Craniosacral Therapy from instructors with the Upledger Institute, to help her clients get relief from chronic pain naturally. This treatment is a gentle manual therapy that helps the body to self-correct imbalances caused by tissue restrictions in the spinal cord and cranial bones. Craniosacral Therapy works at the deep core level, which provides relief for many types of chronic pain such as migraines and low back pain. Sylvie is also a Reiki Master in Usui, Karuna, and Shamanic practices. Reiki is a gentle laying on the hands treatment that helps the body heal through channeling of Life Force Energy facilitated by the therapist. She has had the honors to have learned and worked with many spiritual mentors and masters, therefore enhancing her work to an advanced level of care. Sylvie also offers Swedish Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy (deep tissue). Swedish is a light touch, relaxing massage with long soothing strokes, and Neuromuscular is a deeper touch on the muscles with focus on tight muscles and trigger points. Sylvie enjoys what she does in educating and empowering clients on the importance of good health, self-care practices and body awareness.
 Outside of her work, Sylvie is a devoted mom to her 8 year old daughter, and teaches Sunday School at her local church community. When the weather is warm, she enjoys nature walks and meditating outdoors.    



Plant Spirit Medicine

Julie Ellerbeck

Julie Ellerbeck

Plant Spirit Medicine

Julie’s practice of Plant Spirit Medicine is centered in the ancient knowledge that to engage in health, one must engage with spirit. She recognizes how hard that can be in today’s world, as we struggle with all that life demands of us. 

In her various roles providing guidance, Julie worked with many people who couldn’t find the help they really needed, as they would benefit from care that integrated all the issues of body, mind and spirit.  This led her to study Herbalism, Classical Chinese Medicine, and the practice of Plant Spirit Medicine.  It is in her work with Plant Spirit Medicine that she has found a depth and richness of spirit which can be generously shared with her patients. 

Services

We, like all living things, hold an energetic pattern. Plant Spirit Medicine works with this pattern to restore balance and harmony in the body, mind and spirit.  This ancient healing tradition works with the energies of the natural world, following the cycle of nature. 

The Patient Experience

We all have our own way of moving in the world, of dealing with physical, emotional and life-path issues.  Some of us have primary symptoms in the body, others, in emotion, and others present complex ailments that are not easily treated with conventional western medicine.   As energetic balance is restored, ease in moving through life, mental and emotional steadiness, and physical harmony predominate; symptoms can lessen and fall away. 

Consultation and Treatment

  • Adults are scheduled for a two-hour consultation and exam. 
  • Children/teens are scheduled for consultation with a parent, older children and teens may speak with Julie one-on-one; thirty minutes  to one hour is usual. 
  •  A specific treatment plan is developed to meet the needs of each patient.  Treatments are scheduled based on what is needed to restore balance, for health and well-being. 

As with most alternative therapies, insurances do not cover Plant Spirit Medicine treatments.  Every effort will be made to reach a satisfactory financial arrangement.
