A Healing Haiku
Hungry hands searching
Consuming pain all day long
Healing then is left
“I have been seeing Dr. Emily Telfair since May 2006 and have been amazed at the results I have been experiencing while under her care. I have had arthritis in my fingers for approximately six or seven years which has created swelling and stiffness in my hands that makes everyday tasks challenging. After just a few months of receiving Dr. Telfair’s naturopathic care combined with her craniosacral treatments, the mobility in my fingers has increased and the swelling and stiffness has decreased significantly. Along with these improvements I have a better sense of well-being and feel more grounded in my everyday life. I am grateful for having met Dr. Telfair and highly recommend her care.”
“I have been receiving craniosacral therapy for about 5 months. I look forward to each session for many reasons. Dr. Emily is such a positive and energetic person — it is invigorating and uplifting to be around her. She is sincere, caring and compassionate. Each session has helped me in different ways. I have noticed a gradual but definite improvement in the problem I wanted to address with Dr. Emily and feel that with more sessions I will continue to improve. I leave visits with Dr. Emily taking with me her positive ideas to incorporate them into my daily life as much as I can. The treatments are calming and relaxing both to the mind and body, and the benefits continue after each session. I strongly recommend Dr. Emily and craniosacral therapy for a positive life change.”
“Dr. Telfair is an amazing healer: Part physician, part sculptor, part teacher, part spiritual guide. Ailments I’d had for 20 years and more simply evaporated under her fingers. That was two months ago, and it’s still hard for me to believe.”
