What People Are Saying About Mia's IGM® Intentional Wellness

"Healing, in my opinion, needs the involvement of patient and healer working together.Mia is a healer who listens and responds in ways that work for each individual client. She has helped me with knee pain relief, shortness of breath, and thyroid issues. I can highly recommend her and do so enthusiastically."

 - Claudia A., Poughkeepsie, New York

"My session with you was a Godsend, including the conversation. I have been struggling with not feeling well emotionally and physically, and your beautiful work helped me very, very much in both areas. You have a healing gift, and I am very grateful and feel so fortunate."

 - Susan C., Arlington, VA

"Mia’s outstanding therapeutic skills, combined with her generosity, kindness, and wisdom, have helped me to heal emotionally and physically. I’ve experienced very significant improvement in the areas of depression, anxiety, and insomnia. In addition,lower-back pain that plagued me for over 20 years is gone, and I get colds much less frequently. Joint soreness has also abated. I’m very grateful to experience Mia’s profound healing ability. I feel much healthier as a result, and I strongly recommend Mia’s IGM ® Therapeutic Acupressure sessions to support overall well-being as well as to address many specific ailments."

 - Laura M., Poughkeepsie, NY

"I believe you performed life support yesterday. I feel like a new person today. It felt like everything was coming to a head, and you helped me surmount the challenges on every level. My knee and leg feel much better and the emotional trauma has lifted. I can't thank you enough for your caring!"

 - N. R., Tuxedo, NY

"I was referred to Mia for acupressure by a holistic medical professional in Poughkeepsie. My problem is systemic inflammation (most severe in my pelvic region), which has largely been triggered by stress. Acupressure has done wonders for me (in tandem with a healthier diet). This type of treatment is very relaxing and heals from the inside out. My pelvic pain has become less frequent and also less severe. In the most recent instance, the pain disappeared within 24 hours of treatment, whereas I would usually have suffered for days or weeks. I just felt suddenly well. Mia is a very kind practitioner who takes a gentle approach. I am someone who is generally skeptical, but this treatment has been effective for me. I highly recommend it if you are suffering from stress and its physical and emotional effects."

 - Ellen, Millbrook, NY

"I began acupressure with Mia in June 2016, about 6 months after having hip replacement surgery. I had been treated with acupuncture for two years prior to the surgery and had felt tremendous benefits from it; however, I think I started it too late in the process to avoid the surgery. I maintain good mental and physical health through yoga, hiking, and eating healthy, but that hadn’t been enough, which is why my current goal is to be more proactive in an attempt to avoid surgery on the other hip. During an acupressure session, I feel similar mental and physical benefits as I feel from acupuncture as well as from yoga. Through acupressure, I have learned more about the connections throughout the body, connections I had not necessarily noticed or felt so specifically before. To be healthy, the energy in the body needs to be able to circulate freely, and acupressure with Mia has helped open and maintain those pathways. Mia provides an unhurried session with time to ask questions and debrief, both before and after the acupressure itself. As both practitioner and teacher, Mia is very knowledgeable, caring, accessible, and patient. I value all I have learned from Mia already, and the benefits I have experienced help me have a positive outlook for a healthy future!"

 - Leah A., Highland, NY

"I was looking for alternative methods of dealing with physical pain and suffering when I found Mia. Mia's acupressure expertise has not only helped me deal with the physical pain I have had from a malfunctioning total hip replacement, but also in dealing with stress buildup in my body from grief from suddenly losing a loved one to the stress of caring for failing elderly parents. I hold a lot of tension, especially in my upper back, shoulders, and neck, not to mention the hip problem and lower back pain. Mia relieves much of the pain and suffering through her knowledge of the body’s network of channels through which the "chi" flows. I leave the session feeling refreshed and relaxed when she balances my chi, opens up blockages, and gets it all flowing the way it should. Mia expresses true caring and concern for my welfare and is a joy to be around."

 - Maryann R., Staatsburg, NY

"With all the daily stress and all the chronic back and neck pain I’ve had for years, the relief I get from my sessions with you is welcoming. Yesterday I arrived with a headache that rated a 15 and left with it at maybe a 1. I don’t know how it works, but thank you! I really look forward to our sessions and appreciate the time and energy you spend working with me. Great work!"

 - Bob, Poughkeepsie, NY

"I have seen Mia for several sessions, and my experience with her has been nothing but positive. I have severe pain in my lower back/buttocks area and have struggled for years in my quest for relief. My sessions with her have brought great mental/emotional support and comfort (which I didn’t know I need). I am very confident that some physical relief will follow with further sessions. My time with Mia has been very therapeutic, and her spirituality, words, and ideas have helped considerably. She has been a Godsend, and I would recommend her to anyone who suffers from pain, both mental and/or physical."

 - Kathy O’B, Poughkeepsie, NY

"I've come to Mia for the last several years as an adjunct to the other heathcare options that I use: chiropractic, massage, and acupuncture, and I find that the acupressure benefits not only my musculo-skeletal ailments, but it helps me to relax during and after my sessions. I plan to continue into the future with these sessions."

 - Pat S., Poughkeepsie, NY

"I am really pleased to recommend Mia Anderson for acupressure. She is truly outstanding. Mia cares, focuses on my physical and emotional issues, and always responds in a timely and effective manner. I am experiencing neck and lower-back pain, and I do feel the healing effects during and after every session. In short, she knows what she is doing, and she does it carefully and with great concern."

 - Dick R., Poughkeepsie and New York City, New York

"I have been coming to Mia for Heal from Within IGM® therapeutic acupressure for 4 or 5 years now. Every time I receive a treatment from Mia, I feel so much better. I have some joint and hip pain, but manage “well enough,” and usually schedule an appointment only when I’m hurting a lot. It has occurred to me just recently to plan ahead and schedule monthly appointments so I can stay in balance, instead of waiting until I’m in pain again. Her work touches mind, body, and soul, and the result is healing on all levels. I am deeply grateful to Mia for her training, her skills, and her gentle, safe, and kind approach to healing, and wholeheartedly recommend Mia to others."

 - Sally A., Clinton Corners, NY

Mia adjusting client's neck"Just wanted to say thanks again for Saturday's session. It was very effective, and I have been pain-free for three days, which has not been the case for many moons, I can tell you. I also like the sort of ending 'things to remember' part. Short but sweet."

 - Monica J., Howell, NJ

"These past years I truly believe you were a force that saved my life. Every session with you was compassionate and caring. Not only did I unburden myself to you, but your kindness never let me fall into the deep depression that hovered close by. During [my husband's] illness, you were only a phone call away, and you always tried to fit me in when you realized even before I did how desperately I needed an IGM® with you. After the sessions, the problems were still there, of course, but I felt better able to handle them."

 - Nan E., Upper Saddle River, NJ

"I met you at a very unhealthy and desperate time in my life. The acupressure sessions, the ideas that you shared with me, and the books that you leant me – all are responsible for putting me on this path toward healing. I feel very healthy now and optimistic about that continuing."

 - Kim DeG., Scotch Plains, NJ

"I have nothing but praise for Mia. Her heartfelt caring on all levels – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual – has helped to bring healing into my life. At each session, your applied knowledge of the IGM® Intentional Wellness technique and your calming presence have restored me. Thank you so very much, Mia!!!"

 - Irene J., Mahway, NJ

"I have been a client of Mia's Heal from Within for over two years. In the beginning, I was skeptical if acupressure would be able to help with the emotional and physical concerns I was having every day. I am pleased to say I feel so much better and actually look forward to my sessions with Mia."

 - Jo S., Paramus, NJ

"This is for anyone who might have doubts or is skeptical about how IGM® Intentional Wellness can help keep you healthy. I can tell you from my experience and from my first visit over three years ago, it definitely works. I still go to keep myself feeling good. I highly recommend IGM® if you don't want to depend on drugs to treat your illness symptoms…. I have been helped with neck and back pain and a sinus problem." - Susan G., Ramsey, NJ

"I started coming to Mia right after my husband died after a year of painful illness. He was only 63 years old, and I was devastated. I would lie on her table with tears running down my face the entire session. Mia has helped me greatly in every way – certainly physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I have hope again. She has been an oasis in the desert. I have been seeing her regularly for 2½ years. She has been a large part of my healing. Mia is a kind, caring, capable, knowledgeable woman, and I highly recommend her."

 - Susan P., Bergenfield, NJ

"I wanted to share with you the experience I had with Mia Anderson today. I presented myself at her office with complaints of right shoulder and lower lumbar pain (from a herniated disc). During the acupressure, I felt two twitches as the meridians in my body opened up. I was completely relaxed (probably snoring), during the treatment. Most importantly, I have a better sense of well-being. I encourage you to visit Mia when you have an opportunity. I do believe she can help you, not only with the acupressure but with her overall spirit."

 - Randy L., Ramsey, NJ

"Going to Mia for IGM® Intentional Wellness has been wonderfully healing, not just on a physical level, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually too. The combination of her knowing hands, intuitive spirit, and compassionate heart has helped me to open up on many levels. I am sad to see Mia moving but hope to be able to travel to her new office [in Poughkeepsie, NY] for her healing touch."

 - N. O., Oakland, NJ

"I seriously don't know where I would be right now if the Universe hadn't brought me into acupressure sessions with you. Your positive words and optimism for my life during my difficult life change will stay with me forever in any obstacles I will face in the future as well. No words can express how truly grateful I am for everything you have done for me."

 - Christina G., Palisades Park, NJ

"I have been a client of Mia's for three and one half years. Mia's expertise in IGM® Intentional Wellness and her wonderful, caring ways have helped me with the rheumatoid arthritis I've had for over eleven years. I feel very blessed having Mia help me to cope with this very painful illness. Her acupressure treatment makes me feel very relaxed."

 - Annette Mancini, Hawthorne, NJ

"Thank you, Mia, for your place of serenity, your healing techniques, your keen listening abilities, and your thoughtful insights."

 - K.C., Oakland, NJ

"I first visited Mia in October, 2006, after I suffered an attack of Bell's Palsy that left me unable to move the right side of my face, or close my right eye. A co-worker told me that acupressure helped Bell's Palsy, and when I Googled "acupressure" and "Bergen County," I found Mia's website.

"The Bell's Palsy attack turned out to be a blessing in disguise, because it led me to a great healer. After my first session, I still had the Bell's Palsy symptoms, but the rest of my body felt fantastic. Aches and pains I had had for years disappeared. I also began to feel emotions I had blocked off and walled up for years come flowing out of me. Following regular sessions with Mia, I soon made a complete recovery from the Bell's Palsy, and I continue to see her at least once a month to stay healthy. (Recently, during a period of high stress, getting ready for a trip that required a lot of physical stamina, I saw her weekly as preventive medicine. It was the best "trip insurance" I could have purchased.)

"I was apprehensive about acupressure. I don't like massage, and I tend to be skeptical of people who promote alternative therapies. But Mia's professional manner reassured me, and I've become an acupressure true believer. I'm signing up my entire family for sessions."

 - Joan V. Thorn, Teaneck, NJ

"I've been coming to Mia Anderson for IGM® Intentional Wellness treatments for about a year. Mia is truly dedicated to healing and gives unstintingly of her time and energy. She radiates peacefulness and positivity, energies that fill her surroundings and particularly her treatment room, which is an oasis of peace. Mia is quite intuitive and always supplies me with invaluable insights. During a treatment, the process of opening the acupressure points feels extraordinarily good, and afterward I feel totally relaxed and renewed in body, mind and spirit.

"My biggest challenge is Parkinson's Disease, and I find that I often get greater coverage from my medications immediately after a treatment with Mia. After my most recent treatment (yesterday), for example, one dose of meds lasted over seven hours, instead of the usual four hours. I believe that bit by bit, these treatments are doing me long-term good."

 - Alice W., Ridgewood, NJ

"Mia is a wonderful companion on my journey through life. I started receiving IGM® acupressure sessions from her about three years ago, and I have received so much more in the process. A transformation takes place during the session, after which I experience the sensation of inner peace. Mia's wise counsel and IGM® acupressure sessions have worked synergistically to assist me in navigating along my life's path. Mia is most definitely on my "gratitude list"! It is with great enthusiasm and confidence that I recommend visiting Mia for IGM® acupressure."

 - D.T., Kinnelon, NJ

"When I first came to Mia, I had many issues, both physical and emotional. After two years of Mia's IGM® Intentional Wellness sessions, my body feels so much better (less tension and more energy). My emotional health has also improved (letting go of past demons and focusing on myself in a positive way). I look forward to every session!"

 - Mary K., Hawthorne

"December, 2006 - I never thought my body could be hurting so much in places it had never hurt before. My main issue was with my knees and feet. I felt like I had arthritis at the age of 46! At the same time, though, my heart was hurting. Hmmm . . . . could there be a connection? I had my suspicions. A dear friend who was helplessly watching me degrade emotionally and physically told me about Mia. She couldn’t have picked a better person to help me in my healing process. I just had to take the first step. Within a few IGM® Intentional Wellness sessions with Mia, I had an understanding of where the pain was coming from and my abilities to help heal myself. Now, six months later, the pain in my knees has almost disappeared, and my feet are much better, thanks to Mia!"

 - Kathy, Suffern, NY

"When I first heard about acupressure and how our bodies have energy and that different points on our bodies can be pressed to relieve pain or other physical discomforts, I though it was something out of science fiction. When my friend suggested that I try it, I admit I didn't go in with an open mind, and I was very skeptical of the whole process. My friend also told me not to expect any major or significant changes at first but that things would improve.

"After two sessions, I became a believer. I was simply amazed at how good I felt. My chest opened up, and I could take deep, cleansing breathers for perhaps the first time. My lung capacity improved, and I can now hold a whole note for either beats instead of four. I used to get chronic bronchitis at least once a year, but I no longer get it. I used to also suffer with severe back spasms, but now these are greatly reduced and are less frequent and do not last long at all.

"I highly recommend Mia's IGM® Intentional Wellness. I also urge insurance companies to pay claims for acupressure treatments so the benefits such as those I experience can be for all those who can not afford to pay on their own. So if you have not tried it, I suggest you try it - and start to feel healthy. You will feel so much better about yourself when you do."
