Holistic Healer Dr Mary Lou Rane 1334x2000-001
I enable my patients to unravel their underlying causes of dis-ease and emotional disharmony to achieve health and vitality.

With each patient I help, I use a unique blend of Clinical Nutritional, Functional Medicine, Neuro Emotional Technique® “NET”, Nutritional Response Testing, Contact Reflex Analysis, Epigenetics, Neurovascular Dynamics, and multiple Kinesiological healing modalities.

My introduction to the practice of holistic health began in my early adulthood with life-changing chiropractic care and nutritional advice that restored my own health and vitality.  The profound results inspired me to pursue a Ph.D. in nutrition where I studied the impact of diet and toxicity in the body, brain, and nervous system.

The direct link between most illness and psycho-emotional stress is that stress not only activates the sympathetic nervous system and suppresses the immune system, but also creates a biochemical cascade that potentially leads to dis-ease.  This insight led me to advanced study of Neuro Emotional Technique® “NET” with its creator, Dr. Scott Walker, D.C. at its onset in the mid 1980s.

I have immersed myself in over three decades of study with extraordinary doctors, mentors and trainings in numerous healing modalities and am deeply honored to share these powerful healing technologies.


I have been in private practice in Westwood, CA since 1987. I have studied with some of the greatest world-renowned doctors who continue to develop cutting edge methodologies today.  Advancing my expertise in the latest modalities and protocols is my life long endeavor.
