Acupuncture Services Now Available!
Mary Sarratori MSAOM, L.Ac

Mary is a 2002 graduate of Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania where she received her Bachelor’s of Arts in psychology specializing in elementary education. In 2011 she graduated from the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at New York Chiropractic College with a Master’s of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Mary likes to incorporate modern advances in acupuncture with the traditional medicine aspect that is over 2,000 years old. She is an avid researcher and is always striving to learn as much as possible, even traveling to China to gain more perspective and experience in the development of acupuncture within hospitals. Mary’s practice is focused in Traditional Chinese Medicine, where the human body is regarded as its own entity, each organ, tissues, and other parts have specific functions but are all interdependent on each other. She treats a wide variety of conditions including pediatric concerns, pain management, fertility, and gynecology. Mary is also very interested in acupuncture sports therapy and works with athletes of all different levels. She incorporates Tuina (therapeutic medical massage), cupping, and Chinese herbs into her practice.

Mary is NOW available Tuesdays and Thursdays at The Springs.  She is a provider for insurance plans including Blue Cross Blue Shield, MVP, CIGNA, and No Fault. Please contact your customer service representatives to find out if your specific policy covers acupuncture, what your copay or coinsurance amounts are, and whether there are policy limitations on your plan. Medicare & Medicaid do NOT cover acupuncture under any circumstances.  For patients without insurance coverage, we offer reasonable self pay rates and package discounts are available.

 

Jarrod Reed, LMT
Licensed Massage Therapist
Deep Tissue & Trigger Point Specialist
Jarrod is a graduate of the Therapeutic Massage/Integrated Health Care program at Finger Lakes Community College in Canandaigua, NY. Jarrod began his education in Health Sciences at SUNY Cortland and decided that he wanted a career that provided treatment for those people seeking improved quality of life through the holistic benefits massage could offer. Jarrod considers himself a “muscle therapist,” seeking to provide therapeutic results and relief for his clients, rather than a superficial experience with massage.

Jarrod incorporates several techniques into his work including Connective Tissue and Trigger Point Therapy, Swedish/Relaxation, and Reflexology. His approach to Swedish/Relaxation massage relies on a heavier hand, bordering on Connective Tissue Therapy to achieve maximum results for his clients. He is very conscientious of his client’s needs and preferences, and is very professional in his performance. Jarrod’s hands-on skills are gifted, and he has the uncanny ability to seek out the most elusive tension in the body.  Jarrod is also certified in Ayurvedic Bodywork, including Abhyanga, foot reflexology, and marma therapy.

Michael J. O’Connor, D.C., D.A.B.C.O.
Chiropractic Orthopedist

Dr. O’Connor has been a practicing chiropractor and an educator for 25 years. He moved to upstate NY in 1991 to become the chairman of the Radiology Department and then later the Director of the Diagnosis and Clinical Practice Department at New York Chiropractic College. He is a Board Certified Chiropractic Orthopedist, and also has certifications in Sports Medicine and Disability and Impairment. He specializes in the conservative treatment of neuromusculoskeletal problems, which includes back pain, neck pain, headache and disc problems.

Dr. O’Connor is a certified Graston Technique practitioner. Graston Techniques allow for the detection and treatment of scar tissue or adhesions in muscles, tendons and ligaments that can lead to pain, weakness, and functional limitation. This instrumented technique can be used to "break-up" these restrictions or adhesions. Exercises are then used to promote realignment of the fibers so they can behave more like normal, healthy tissue.

Hypnotherapist
John Teleska has maintained a hypnotherapy practice in Rochester, NY since 1997 and is a clinician at the Integrative Medicine Center of Clifton Springs Hospital. John received his Masters Degree in Education from The University of Rochester.

He has completed nine years of advanced training in Ericksonian hypno- and psychotherapy, sponsored by the Forum for Psychotherapy Cybernetics in NYC. He has trained under the direction of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, the Milton H. Erickson Foundation in Phoenix, and studied psychodrama with Dorothy Satten and pre- and peri-natal birth trauma with William Emerson. He has also studied Sensory Awareness with Charlotte Selver, whose work he experiences as embodied hypnotherapy-that frees deeply held physiological patterns.

John is a member of The Center for Psychotherapy Cybernetics, a private group of clinicians investigating the utilization of therapist/client creativity for promoting change. He is also a member of the American Counseling Association and The National Board of Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists. With colleagues Andrew Roffman (faculty, NYU Medical Center’s Child Studies Program) and Laurence Sugarman, M.D.(faculty, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry), he has co-authored published works expanding the clinician’s view of what constitutes therapeutic hypnotic engagement.
