There are many reasons why people seek out holistic methods of healing. Some turn to these alternative therapies because they do not have medical insurance. Some believe in the healing power of the body and mind. Still others find it as a last resort to relieve chronic pain has persisted more traditional forms of treatment.
Whatever the reasons that bring you to the Live Well Holistic Center in Ardmore, Dr. Martin Orimenko will likely greet you, as he did for me. Patients there fondly call him “Doctor Martin.”
This story came about after several Main Line residents—unknown to each other, with various backgrounds and incomes, and under independent circumstances—spoke about their positive outcomes from treatment at Live Well.
Keeping in mind that there are some vocal, rather rigidly traditional physicians who take a dim view, in general, of holistic medicine and healing methods, we decided to focus simply on the experience, and report on it.
The atmosphere in the office is calm and comforting, and the open-air courtyard leading into the office sets the tone even before you enter the office. Once inside, Dr. Martin’s wife and co-founder of the center, Traci (who is also a holistic health counselor), welcomes you as if entering her home.
