Naturopathic Healing

Dr. Phil Selinsky, N.D.

He graduated from the Los Angeles College of Massage and Physical Therapy’s Instructor Training in 1976.

The first school of Hypnosis in California,
The first “Chair Massage” program, book, and video program in California

“Doc Phil is awesome, I have referred a number of people to him based on my experieince with his work. My energry level always increases after a visit to Phil…My body just seems to work better after he finds the “congested” spots and releases them. It is well worth an hour appointment you will be glad you did, a gift to you.” – Linda N.
