Acupuncture Physician and Psychotherapist John Patton, Licensed Massage Therapist Brittany Snyder and Functional Nutrition Practitioner Leora Dappen, of the Healing Arts Center, are joining forces with yoga instructor and Reiki practitioner Susanna Tocco, of Anahata Yoga studio, in Naples, to form a new and expanded center, located at 1063-1065 Fifth Avenue North. This joint project fulfills Patton’s goal of fusing the many modalities together to create a complete personalized holistic wellness experience, helping clients thrive physically, mentally and spiritually.

The center will offer acupuncture, psychotherapy, functional medicine, functional holistic nutrition, and massage therapy, yoga, tai chi, qigong and Tibetan singing bowl and meditation classes. Sensory awareness and mindfulness in Taoist and Gestalt practices, functional nutrition and nutraceutical use for specific health conditions and spiritual nutrition (how foods significantly affect us at an energetic, qi or life-force level) classes will be added to the schedule soon.

Patton has been practicing Oriental medicine and psychotherapy for more than 30 years, and Snyder has 13 years of massage therapy experience. Tocco has been teaching yoga at Anahata Studio for five years and Dappen recently relocated to Naples from South Dakota, where she received a Master of Science degree in Holistic Nutrition in 2009.
