Dr. Guy G. DeAngelis is a naturopathic doctor whose practice is dedicated to helping individuals lead healthy, vibrant lives. He lives the naturopathic tenet of “doctor as teacher” every day by educating patients about the root causes of their health challenges and instructing them in ways they can support their body’s own innate healing abilities to return them to wellness.

His recommendations for therapies and lifestyle modifications are carefully developed to specifically meet each individual’s needs. His practice is distinguished from many by his interest and research in evidence-based natural therapies.

In addition to a doctorate in naturopathic medicine, he also holds a doctorate in Philosophy and actively participates in continuing education to expand his skills in alternative medicine modalities.

Wendy Lowe, Licensed Managing Esthetician certified in Oncology Esthetics

I work with people who are looking to take control of their skin conditions and stress levels in simple, effective, noninvasive ways. Including those who are dealing with the unique, compromised skin side effects of cancer and its treatments. 

Touch therapies include facials ((anti-aging, brightening, decongesting, hydrating, firming, soothing, aromatherapy), hand and foot massages. I offer advanced technologies (LED and MicroCurrent) and non-mainstream techniques (Hot / Cold Stone, Bamboo and Gua Sha facial massage). The primary skin care line I use is A Natural Difference which has a motto of "the science of skincare as nature intended." 

I take the skin and health benefits of stress reduction seriously. I have an Oxygen Bar where you sit, relax and take deep breaths of scented oxygen. If you happen to be waiting for an appointment or waiting for someone in an appointment, stop by and see if I'm available for an Oxygen Bar demonstration. I like to be at the Center even when I'm not booked; those times are noted with "Available" on my door.  I offer several discounts and packages including 50% off your first treatment if you are an existing client of any practitioner at CAM. I have a buy 3 get your 4th free facial package and offer 20% off services to Golden Buckeye card holders. I am looking forward to helping you look good and feel better.

Soul Steps
Reiki Master Teacher & Healer

I teach workshops and seminars and also work personally and intuitively with individuals respecting each person’s space and unique journey. Each of us can heal ourselves as we walk in our own footsteps creating our own reality–always conscious that other energies do interact with ours (positively or negatively) depending on the degree of our coherence and consciousness.

Twenty + years of intuitive experience and exploration, writing, studying, interactive teaching, lecturing, and working with physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional transformation.

MA in Theology–University of Dayton, Reiki Master–teacher/practitioner, Cranial-sacral training

Teach at wellness centers, write articles for publication, appear on TV, speak at retreats, work in several states while maintaining a working space for Quantum Transformation and Reiki in Columbus, Ohio. Study life through the eyes of my five children and grandchildren - my greatest teachers.

Dena E. Johnston RN, MSN, CCT

Ohio Infrared Health, Breast & Body Thermography
Certified Clinical Thermographer


Dena received her Bachelors degree in Biology and Zoology from Ohio Wesleyan University. She then carried on her long family tradition of nursing, and earned her RN from The Ohio State University. She has worked in the Emergency Department for the past 12 years. She also went on to complete the Nurse Practitioner Masters degree program at The Ohio State University, with a focus on Adult Health. 

Hearing too many tragic stories of young women being diagnosed with breast cancer, as well as sadly watching local women in the media lose their battle with breast cancer, Dena wanted to find a safe way to take charge of her own breast health. What she found was Thermography, but there were no places locally that offered this early detection screening. Dena decided it was time to educate herself on this important subject. She attended the American College of Clinical Thermology and became a Certified Clinical Thermographer. She now performs breast screenings on women of all ages. Dena also provides half and full body imaging for men and women for total body wellness.

It is his desire to help you have the most complete healthy muscle tissue possible. He will work with you as your massage therapist, muscle therapist or fitness trainer. Currently David is specializing in rapid muscular pain relief of the lower body by working more directly with the nervous system.

Ed Mack, RMT

After a heart procedure in 2003, Ed witnessed his heart monitor indicate that his vital signs had flat lined. What followed was a near death experience and a trip to Heaven. Not permitted to remain on the Other Side as he wished, Ed was escorted back to his hospital bed by two Saints. Thus began his amazing spiritual journey.

Soon after, Ed discovered that he had received talents that he was unaware of prior to his NDE. Exploring Reiki, he became a Reiki Master Teacher in 2005.

Ed began pursuing metaphysical interests, becoming skilled in guided meditations, past life regressions, and empathetic listening.

Having worked as an engineer for 34 years in the underground mining industry, Ed understands the range of emotions resulting from a stressful life, career, and the toll that it takes on your health. Eventually he learned how to relax, release, and renew. He discovered numerous spiritual exercises to bring about an internal peace, with a mission to share his successes with others.

As part of his practice, Ed offers Reiki, both hands on and long distance. His guided meditations relax and refresh. Past life regressions offer insight to what a person is experiencing.

Empathetic listening allows you to talk it out: to get it off your chest. Ed listens without judgement or opinion. You are free to talk about anything with the strictest of confidentiality.

You may choose to experience one modality during your appointment or a combination of those that you wish.

Let’s get together to change your life to a happy and healthy one!
