About Spring Hill Holistic Wellness Center Acupuncture Physician, Dr. Donna
DOM, LAc, LMT
AP3829 and MT51467
Board Certified in Massage and Bodywork
My own journey toward wellness began with a battle with breast cancer. At the young age of 44, I was told I had an aggressive cancer and if I did not fight hard I would not survive. So that’s what I did. I went through surgeries and chemotherapy and came out on the other side cancer-free. Unfortunately, like most people who have been exposed to chemotherapy drugs, side affects kept popping up everywhere. Going through that ordeal caused me to begin looking at alternative ways to heal my body … and yes my spirit.
Learning to find peace after my breast cancer treatments began my journey to true healing.
My position on health and wellness comes from my background in social services as a crisis worker for the Department of Social Services in Massachusetts, as director of a long term care facility for Alzheimer and dementia, and as a counselor with the Department of Corrections in Massachusetts for drug and alcohol abuse. My training in therapeutic work as a massage therapist, and now as an Acupuncture Physician and Doctor of Oriental Medicine draws from a very different approach to healing than the one I began my professional life in. My current orientation signifies the importance of wellness not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually. One does not exist without the other and, as in the Chinese philosophy, Yin and Yang (dark and light), forces within us are complimentary, interconnected and interdependent as in the natural world and give rise to how they interrelate with one another. I am a living example of this balance. For me, traditional and holistic wellness are not in opposition. Instead, they are meant to live in harmony with each other.
Acupuncture, massage, herbal medicine, energy work, yoga, and Thai Chi all respond to the nervous system, the immune, and the endocrine system. This interaction brings about a sense of wellbeing, clarity and increased immunity. This is what is meant when we say a preventative approach to wellness.

Randi L. Redmon, LMHC
I am a licensed mental health counselor with a passion for helping my clients discover their inner resources, overcome obstacles and thrive in their lives.
I became interested in counseling after my own experience with psychotherapy. I was unable to resolve some distressing experiences on my own. I felt lost and alone. Working with a compassionate therapist helped to uncover my painful, limiting beliefs and revealed my unknown strengths and resilience. The process helped to create meaning and purpose where there had only been uncertainty and darkness. The experience changed me so significantly that I was able to attend college and earn my degree; a long-held dream that I was finally able to accomplish.
Since becoming a psychotherapist I have gained comprehensive experience working with trauma, life transitions, grief and loss, chronic illness and addictive disorders. My approach to counseling is holistic and integrative. I use trauma-informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), hypnosis, Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) and other approaches adapted to fit the needs of each individual person.
Out of the broken ground of painful life events can arise deep purpose and meaning. To get there however, we must face those painful and challenging events and feelings. This can be made easier with an authentic and compassionate helper guiding the way. Let me be your partner in facing whatever is in front of you and helping you to discover the freedom to live your life fully.
