Natural Awakenings News: RN Integrates Energy Healing Modalities and Stress Reduction
Donna Pascaretta

DDonna Pascaretta, registered nurse and licensed massage therapist, is an experienced fertility nurse who brings a special touch to women experiencing infertility. Known as the “relaxation nurse,” she utilizes several integrative energy-healing modalities during what can be a stressful time for couples.

“Stress reduction management is imperative to the pregnancy journey,” Pascaretta says. “Reducing stress with massage and energy healing allows the body to relax, which creates balance within the body. Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers. The endocrine glands send signals to each other. When the body is in balance, the endocrine glands are able to communicate with each other effectively. This unobstructed flow and reduced stress creates an environment in the body that is more conducive to conception. Self-care is of the utmost importance, especially during a woman’s fertility cycle. Connecting the body, mind and spirit promotes balance and hope.”

Pascaretta practices at Optimal Healing PLLC, established in 2000, which is located inside Authentic Living Center in Troy. She is also an American Massage Therapy Association member, a Michigan Reproductive Nurses Association member and a fertility nurse at the office of Dr. Michael Mersol-Barg, M.D., in Bloomfield Hills.
