Eyde’s vision of providing personalized, compassionate skin care treatment for compromised skin is currently the only oncology skincare service offered in Connecticut. Eyde has obtained the necessary training founded by the Mórag Currin, method called “Touch for Cancer”. Mórag’s program is well established across the United States, Canada, Australia, Italy and New Zealand. It is the first to be offered and practiced in Connecticut and based out of the Oneida Holistic Center.

The purpose of a complementary therapy is not to treat the cancer itself but to treat the person as a whole. Complementary therapies help a person cope with cancer, its treatment or side effects, and to feel better. Side effects from cancer treatment related and  financial issues.  Eyde provides specialized skin treatments for men and women currently undergoing cancer treatment(s) and is specifically trained to provide comfort and relief from compromised skin conditions. Eyde possesses a deep understanding of the effects of cancer on the body and how best to safely accommodate those clients while working alongside the Oncology teams prescribing treatment.
Eyde founded “Pure Harmony Skin Care” that specializes in addressing compromised skin concerns at an affordable price. Eyde works in a “pay it forward” approach by donating 10% of all treatment proceeds to help those in need of financial assistance to enable anyone that suffers from sometimes painful skin conditions, a nurturing, comforting and healing approach to skin care concerns. Additionally, Eyde offers a “caregivers treat”, as cancer impacts not only the individual receiving the treatments but also family, friends and caregivers. Eyde also offers home and hospice care visitations for those individuals that can not travel to the center.

Does Reflexology Benefit Those With Multiple Sclerosis?

hands and feetReflexology is a revival of an ancient therapy discovered and developed by the Chinese 5000 years ago. It was practiced in the Middle East by the ancient Egyptians who respected it as a curative therapy.

In the 1930’s an American physiotherapist, Eunice Ingram introduced reflexology to America. The principle of this therapy is scientific in that by giving deep, controled compression with the thumb to reflex points on the feet, hands or ears, corresponding to certain parts of the body tensions and blockages are released, allowing the free flow of vital energies and helping the body to heal itself.

There are two Certified Reflexologists offering services at the Oneida Holistic Health Center. They both offer offsite programs. The Oneida Center is located on historic Route 66  in Marlborough, CT.  We are just a short distance from Hartford, East Hampton, Glastonbury, Old Saybrook, Groten and Wethersfield. The National Institute of Health conducted a study on whether or not Reflexology could benefit those with Multiple Sclerosis. The study can be read by following this link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12926840

Concerning Dr. Ed…

inspiration rocks
The following is an email we received about Dr. Edward Miller, our Chiropractor and Medical Acupuncturist.

Subject: Re: Please Review The Oneida Holistic Health Center

I went to write this in the review email that I got but there are too many words! imagine that! so, here it is to do what you want with it……….

In a time when doctors spend less time with you then their cup of coffee, Dr. Ed is the exception! He is one of the most kind-hearted men that I have had the pleasure of knowing. I have been participating in his weekly community acupuncture gatherings and have received amazing benefits. I recently developed a high fever for a week and went to see Dr. Ed. He spent an honoring amount of time with me and then delivered a chiropractic adjustment and then acupuncture. I felt immediate relief and followed up a week later for another adjustment. Knowing how sick I was, Dr. Ed compassionately took time out of his weekend to call me from a conference to see how I was doing! Just his unconditional belief in the power of our own body’s healing potential and his confidence in knowing that these miracles happen daily, allowed me to feel at peace and assured. I sincerely recommend Dr. Ed to anyone who is ready to be supported by an amazing earthly angle doctor! You will feel better just knowing him!
