Peace of Mind Thermography and Wellness
Thermography—also known as DITI—is a noninvasive, painless, and safe adjunctive diagnostic procedure in which a Meditherm infrared camera is used to record thermal patterns and temperature variations on the surface of the body, producing real-time digital images (thermograms) that reveal sites of physiologic dysfunction and/or abnormal tissue growth, as well as nerve and vascular changes that are invisible to xray and MRI.
A thermogram can be taken of the whole body or a region of interest, such as the breast, abdomen, or carotid. The digital images are compiled and sent electronically to a certified thermologist/MD for interpretation and reporting. Within a few days, the color images and report are sent to you as well as your referring practitioner, if desired.
Thermography is the only method presently available for visualizing pain and is unique in its capability to show physiologic change and metabolic process

ABOUT DEB FATE-MENTAL:
Deb Fate-Mental is an archetypal Wise Woman and has been in practice for almost a decade. Her healing expertise combines traditional plant lore with authentic, old-fashioned shamanism and spiritual healing. Deb helps people Remember themselves via healings, classes and readings so they may re-connect with Nature and the Divine. Deb is available for in-person healings and divination in Hopkinton, MA and distance via Skype or phone. Aside from healing work, Deb is working on a book and is a Druid-in-training.
What Deb has to say about what she does…
“When I am performing a healing or when I am teaching what I’m really doing is bringing that person into alignment and connection, more specifically nature connection (or interspecies connection) and remembering. That is the current under everything I do. It’s there and it’s what I’m really conveying when I see a client and when I teach. The people who respond the best, whether they’re students or clients, are open to and understand that connection and remember. It’s also what makes me super-fun to have as a teacher and it’s what makes me a powerful healer. It’s what that light is when I work; I remember and can shine out or become that connectedness. It’s imperative that we remember this. That we remember we’re all one family; that we all live on this Earth together in community and we’re all connected. We’ve forgotten this for a very, very long time.”
