Partners In Healing

Co-sponsors of “Partners in Healing are Healthy Alaskans Coalition (which has the unfortunate acronym HAC) and  Infinity films (Mary Kazte).

HAC is a small group of Juneau folks who want to encourage conversation about health care in Alaska.

Partners in Healing explores integrative medicine in Alaska. Integrative medicine combines western modern medicine with appropriate natural therapies and is focused on health maintenance, prevention, education and healing, while recognizing the body’s innate ability to heal itself.

This 46-minute documentary film features practitioners and patients from Alaska in a variety of locations across the state. Designed to be healing in style and presentation, the film moves smoothly between 12 modalities of integrative care with connecting commentary by two experts in the field, Dr. Lyn Freeman and Dr. Gary Ferguson.  Locations range from the Kenai Peninsula to Ketchikan to Southcentral Alaska. Finding and appreciating the natural beauty around us by connecting to nature is healing. The original soundtrack to the film, composed by Brian Satterwhite has been created to be supportive and relaxing as well.  The mission of Partners in Healing is to provide a safe, gentle introduction to some of the many ways to become involved in one’s own healing.
