Mind-Body Medicine Student

Peter Amato is passionate about the healing potential of integrative medicine.  In addition to running two integrative healthcare facilities, Peter has recently expanded his work to collaborate with the Integrative Life Centers in Nashville, Tennessee (, and has authored a book, Soul Silence, a spiritually focused way to navigate recovery.  Deepak Chopra's endorsement graces the cover.

The original Inner Harmony Wellness Center is situated idyllically on the campus of the Regional Hospital of Scranton (formerly Mercy Hospital).  The entire staff is committed to providing a multi-disciplinary team approach to health, and over the years, the team has designed protocols for people who want to receive holistic treatment.  Modalities include acupuncture, colon hydrotherapy, chiropractic services, therapeutic massage, nurse-practitioner wellness, and preventive care visits.

The second center is located on St. Maarten.  Two European osteopathic physicians lead the practice and Peter offers Life Coaching, Nutritional Counseling, and Energy Work.  The center is located in the busy Dutch tourist section of Simpson Bay.  Peter's clients often include locals, tourists, and boating crew members.

Peter is also interested in updating the paradigm of drug and alcohol recovery models.  Since the traditional 12-Step Recovery Program originally started in the 1930’s, the program has not updated its methods to allow for spiritual growth during recovery.  Peter views this as an opportunity to advance the power of Mind-Body Medicine and the pursuit of consciousness.  His approach offers a holistic and spiritually based recovery model for those seeking sobriety in a different manner.  Peter is currently collaborating with the Integrative Life Center (www.integrativelifecenter) located in Nashville, Tennessee to reach more people.
