Marta Kazandjian Ranaldo, MA CCC-SLP BCS-S, CPT-EFS is a nationally recognized Medical Speech Pathologist who is Board Certified in Swallowing Disorders. In 2005, Marta’s experience with healthcare changed when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her journey, as a patient to wellness and life in survivorship, inspired her to obtain more education at the prestigious University of Arizona’s Integrative Medical Program. There she became certified in Integrative Lifestyle Management and is one of the first Medical Speech Pathologists who is Certified as an Integrative Health Coach. Marta later became a Certified Personal Trainer-Exercise Fitness Specialist and Reiki Master. Her career in healthcare has allowed her to work with patients who present with a variety of illnesses including neurological diagnoses, neurodegenerative diseases, digestive, pulmonary conditions and cancer. Marta’s 30 year healthcare background, experience as a patient, education in preventative health and lifestyle management, personal fitness training and use of REIKI provides a unique and powerful perspective to those who seek optimal health in survivorship.

MY PHILOSOPY

I believe an integrative approach to care can lead to optimal health. Integrative health recognizes that good medicine should be based in good science, be inquiry driven and open to new paradigms. My private practice focuses on an integrative health coaching model, a partnership between each unique person and me in the healing process. This approach merges use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing process. My practice focuses upon the promotion of health, prevention of illness, support in survivorship and the use of REIKI (a Japanese technique that induces relaxation and promotes healing) to help you achieve your ultimate wellness goal.
