Robert Turchyn, RH, RA, AET

Robert Turchyn, owner of Kauai Island Health (PFNS), has extensive training in the safe use of herbs and essential oils.  He is fluent in their applications in healthcare, ranging from traditional indigenous models of herbalism to modern clinical phytotherapy.  His certification as a professional herbalist (RH) by the American Herbalists Guild (AHG) is a recognition of competency in botanical medicine. The AHG is the only peer review organization in the United States for professional herbalists specializing in the medicinal use of plants.  The Aromatherapy Registration Council (ARC), only certifies as Registered Aromatherapists (RA) those professionals who sit for an exam, administered by a national testing company (PTC) demonstrating knowledge in the safe administration of essential oils.  Mr. Turchyn is the only ARC certified essential oil therapist in the State of Hawaii, and one of fewer than 100 nationwide.

 

“Our clinic is set up around the idea that physical activity is essential for optimal wellness.  “I’ve yet to see any form of foundational training as effective for chronic pain and musculoskeletal issues as Postural Therapy, certified by Egoscue University.  Twenty years experience, both as a client and a practitioner, convinced him that this unique form of postural therapy merited a prominent place in the clinic, “there is no system in the human body that regular functional movement, in the form of exercise, doesn’t benefit.”
