My beliefs

dr. mary jo fishburn md mjf leaf full color rgb

I believe the body will find equilibrium if you give it the opportunity. With better alignment, structural relationships restore better communication.

We are a collaborative network of cells. The physical structure in which we reside requires nourishment (substrates for function, and oxygen). It needs to eliminate what is not needed, receive what it does, and communicate with the whole.

Hormones, Neurotransmitters, and Inflammatory mediators are the communicators, informing, crosschecking, and setting the entire matrix into the state that is needed to best serve the whole.

Balance includes finding peaceful reconciliation between our physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

If you are looking for greater ease of movement with your body, set up a 15-min conversation.

Quotation Mark 02
I contacted Dr. Fishburn during a period of transition in my personal, spiritual, and work lives. I wanted to improve my health, I had concerns about my relationships, and I had questions about Rabbinical Studies.

I found Dr. Fishburn to be deeply intuitive, and her approach was very kind.

She quickly got to the root of my troubles and gave me a clearer perspective, which resulted in resolution of my confusion and apprehension, and enabled me to make decisions with confidence.
