Brigitte Essl, MA, DCM, MD (Euro)


I am an Austrian MD, with post-graduate training leading to an MA in Counseling Psychology, a Doctor of Chiropractic, and expertise in Classical Homeopathy. These postgraduate trainings have expanded my clinical methodologies; they provide me with a deeper understanding of how illness and wellness are influenced by the human psyche and the nervous system. I use non-invasive, multi-layered healing approaches to address a patient's needs.

We live in toxic environments that overload a body's detoxification abilities: toxic body burden in connective tissue and organ systems does interfere with a person's ability to recover. Compounded by life challenges, microbial invasion as well as nutritional deficiencies due to poor diet, malabsorption and stress, the body's adaption systems can be severely challenged. I design individullay tuned supplement programs and utilize a variety of biological products for drainage, detoxification, and re-nourishing energy production. This approach can be very effective also for patients after chemotherapy.

Modalities also include Family Constellation Work (Hellinger work), Metabolic Balance®, Neurofeedback (LENS) and hands-on trauma release work.

Susan Boudakian, DO

A board-certified pediatrician and Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Dr. Boudakian is a graduate of the University of New England, College of Osteopathic Medicine, and completed her pediatric residency at Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center. Over the course of her nearly two-decade career in pediatrics, she has practiced both conventional (allopathic) medicine and osteopathy, making her ideally suited to serve as a bridge between standard and alternative medicine. In addition to many years in private practice for general pediatrics, she has also spent time specializing in adolescent medicine and pediatric rehabilitation medicine, focusing on neurologic, congenital and traumatic brain conditions. She taught cranial osteopathy at Western University of Health Sciences and biodynamic osteopathy at Touro University.. Her approach is based in Osteopathy in the Cranial Field, which serves as the platform from which she practices all forms of osteopathic manual medicine.

Dr. Boudakian learned about Osteopathy through her parents–both dentists. During her teens, her parents saw many difficult dental patients with TMD (temporal mandibular dysfunction), which caused headaches and neck related problems. Because traditional dentistry didn’t seem to help these patients, they searched for alternatives. They were among the first dentists in California to take a basic cranial osteopathy course. Hearing about the great results they got using the most basic cranial osteopathy inspired Dr. Boudakian to take a similar approach to healing–learn standard medicine and learn how to use her hands to diagnose and treat the human body.
