"Dr. Fong is simply wonderful. I originally sought her out for supplements to help negate my RA symptoms and she was so helpful in recommending many that are making a difference. She has helped me immensely with my anxiety issues and has helped me overcome alot of my driving fears through hypnotherapy. So thankful she's in our area." - Shawn A.
"When was the last time you spent 90 minutes with your doctor? I went to Dr. Fong to address my thyroid and lose some weight. She recommended that I try the elimination diet to see if it would help in regulating both. Six weeks later, I have lost 14 lbs and feel much better. I also found out that I have an intolerance to certain foods. I was completely unaware before undergoing this diet. Thanks!" - Kathleen A.
"I have been seeing Alice for two years now. I am 23 years old and have had back surgery and reoccurring back problems. Whenever my back is bothering me, I make sure to see Alice. Every time I get a massage from her, I leave feeling so much better, relaxed, and relieved. Alice takes the time to find the source of the pain and truly cares about making your experience worth it. She even gives me suggestions for things to do at home when I'm having back issues. She genuinely cares about the well-being of her patients. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for massage therapy or pain relief. She is simply the best!" - Shelby T.
"When I was 35 weeks pregnant, I was miserable and couldn't sleep through the night in forever! I was having lower abdominal pressure and a lot of back pain! I went for a prenatal massage and was able to sleep through the night til baby came!! Did I mention I was able to play comfortably on and off the floor with my toddler??? Yes, I definitely would recommend checking her out!!" - Becky H.
"I appreciate that Dr. Fong spent the time to really get to know me and my lifestyle before making any recommendations about testing or treatments. She is gentle and a very good listener. I am so pleased to have her as a resource here in Calvert County. I can't recommend her highly enough!" - Robin W.
"I have been seeing Dr. Fong for the last few years for massage therapy. At each appointment, she takes the time to listen to my concerns and makes sure that I’m comfortable during the massage. Her office is comfortable and inviting. I would highly recommend Dr. Fong for massage therapy." - Becky. T
"I started seeing Alice in the spring of this year. She was recommended by my naturopathic physician. I was experiencing anxiety about many things. My nerves were off the charts reacting to every little stress. My blood pressure was high and I had a fear of taking my blood pressure. I was also experiencing digestive distress. Alice taught me breathing techniques with biofeedback. Through this practice I was able to not only get my nerves under control, but I haven't felt this good in ten years. It improved my mood and I am able to handle the stress with the breathing. It is incredible. My blood pressure has returned to normal and through the breathing lessons I have been able to monitor my own blood pressure without fear. My digestion is back to normal as well. I have also used the breathing to improve my running, and am currently getting better mile times than I have in 4 years. Alice is a healer!!! Thank You” - Sue Y.
"Several months ago I released an affirmation into the universe of perfect health. Included in this affirmation is discontinuing high blood pressure medication and blood thinners. A few months later, through miraculous synchronicity I met Alice. The first time she plugged me in for a bio-feedback session my heart beat was literal off the chart. In less than one month I was off the medication and have consistent normal blood pressure now. Soon after, I contracted chronic back pain. Through massage, hypnotherapy and Chod I resolved the back pain and headed off reoccurring neck pain for which I had surgery fifteen years ago. Alice is now a regular part of my naturopathic approach to realizing my affirmation of perfect health." - Bob C.
"As a runner and climber, my workouts leave me with frequent injuries. When I first saw Alice in 2010, I was struggling with chronic back and shoulder pain that were limiting my activities. We discussed what was going on and she started working, explaining how this would help and what the process would be like. After attending to my shoulder, I went home with a couple days of pain, which then vanished completely! Since then when the injuries start up, I trust Alice to get me back in shape for training. Alice understands, as an athlete herself, how sports injuries occur and what to do about them, and is professional, friendly and competent. Additionally, she is an astute student of medical science with a curiosity for learning about treatments and techniques that can help her clients.” - L. T.
"I came to Alice on the recommendation of a friend when I pulled a muscle in my lower back. Working at a desk job it can be excruciating to sit for long periods with a low back pain. Alice was incredibly professional from the start, laying out options and explaining how she works. I was impressed with everything from the ambiance of the center to the methodical process Alice used. I am a huge fan of her work and would recommend her to anyone, either for an injury or just for a treat to your muscles." - Jer W.
"Alice was able to bring me into a meditative state so i was able to look (without judgement) at the deeper reasons for why i tend to become obsessive and anxious in my thinking. I felt she was truly invested in my healing, extremely compassionate, and it doesn't hurt that she has a soothing voice and great sense of humor too! I would recommend Alice to anyone who is looking for a meaningful healing experience." - A.L.
“I had the wonderful pleasure to experience my first hypnotherapy session under the guidance of Alice. Her warmth and compassionate nature led me through an awakening of great sadness and ultimate JOY that I have never felt before. Her exceptional gift in hypnotherapy left me with a personal realization that life is beautiful, to be myself, and everything will be alright. How could it get any better than that? Thank you Alice and when can I see you again? :) !!” - Paul Despres, ND Candidate 2016
Client with a fear of flying for the last 10 years. After 2 sessions, reports:
“I did SO WELL on all of my flights! I used the visualizations and breathing techniques that I learned from you and from a book on managing anxiety, and I can't tell you what a difference it made. Thank you so much for your help -- I really never thought I could ever get better at flying, and you proved me wrong. :)” - Jillian
“I am feeling much better lately! The deep relaxation or hypnotic state lasted most the rest of the day for me, but I have had an inner sense of calm that has lasted since our session. I really enjoyed it and it certainly has had a lasting effect. I definitely still have my moments of stress, but I'm finding it easier to bring myself back to a more relaxed state. The biggest thing I have noticed is that I feel very peaceful and don't let little things bother me so much - especially external things beyond my control. Speaking of that, I feel more in control of my life and daily activities - like a greater sense of confidence in my abilities if that makes sense.” - Jake D.
“I tried hypnotherapy for smoking cessation after trying many other methods (cold turkey, gum, patches, the Wellbutrin nightmare) with marginal success. When I left the session, I had a revulsion to the smell of cigarettes and a deeper sense of motivation to quit than I've ever had before. While one session was not enough to completely re-write 23 years of nicotine-addled brain chemistry and routine, I know the session helped because I am smoking much less and not enjoying it when I do. I know I made significant progress and plan to give Alice at Holistic Love another shot to help me build on this positive change.”
- Tim L.
1 week after her first session, this client reports in a follow up email:
“ Hi Alice,
Thanks for checking in! I've actually been doing very well since my session. I have only had one cigarette since that Saturday morning (Wednesday of this week is when I cheated) and I didn't really need it. I feel fairly calm and strong; and I did not use anything additional for support (the patch/gum). I am eating a bit more candy than normal, but that's just an excuse to eat candy I think :) You really helped me to realize how strong I really am, and that I really CAN do this on my own. I have had a few cravings, but very manageable. I think the one cigarette I had on Wednesday was more of a test for myself than anything. And I felt just fine afterwards; and the next day I did not really want or need to jump right back in to smoking regularly. So I would say our session was extremely successful and at this point I think I will try and continue down this path on my own. However, I may need to make a visit down the road, who knows? Maybe our talk was all I really needed. Time will tell I guess. I appreciate everything you've done for me and am SO thankful I took the chance on you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
A big fan,
