I have known Dr. Davis for over 20 years and I don't know anyone that is a more caring and understanding then she is. She is a true humanitarian and is completely responsive to the needs of every person she meets. With her 50 + years of study and research there is not another persons opinion I would take over hers. Her knowledge of alternative healing methods and naturopathic medicine is staggering. I have been truly blessed to be a student, client, friend and colleague of hers for these many years.

I have seen truly amazing results by Dr. Davis and her non-invasive holistic therapies. By using light therapy I have seen children change from shy and non verbal and being anti social to going up to strangers and hugging them and trying to talk to them after only one 20 min. session. Sound therapy has helped children become more social and better able to adapt to school situations and focus on school work.

The only changes that I would make would be to expand so that the most amount of children can reap the benefits of these therapies.

Found the PVHC through a news paper article and thought it could not hurt to try it, as dual diagnosis son was on medication but still needed more. The diagnosis of ADHD and Aspergers make him socially awkward and the medication while able to help with the concentration does not help with the social issues or anxiety.

Since starting sound and light therapy at the center and also changing some dietary items under the instruction of Dr. Davis, our son has become much more centered and more willing to enter new social settings. This is a major milestone for us as he is now actively seeking out friends and while maybe not as gregarious as a normal 11 year old boy, he has come a long way for him. What makes this type of treatment and the associated progress so critical is that there is no outward appearance indicating the condition. People around us see this child acting strangely and think he is an over privileged under disciplined child, and that is far from the truth. The treatment has helped with all this and has far exceeded our expectations.

We have and will continue to recommend the center to everyone we know in the hopes that some of the “magic” we have experienced can be shared and thus make others lives easier.

I first came to know about Peace Valley Holistic Center from one of my yoga students, Donnamarie Davis. I'd known Donnamarie for just over a year when she started telling me about PVHC and the services they were providing. I was very interested in hearing and seeing more about PVHC since my nephew had been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome and my cousin's 13 year old son had been diagnosed with Autism when he was a toddler. Because of my family's close ties to the Autism Spectrum Disorders, I knew that PVHC was an organization I wanted learn more about and be involved with.

As a result of my connection with Donnamarie, I was asked to offer yoga classes at the Center and have been doing so since December 2010. The PVHC space has a positive energy and is the perfect location for yoga classes.

On a personal note, I was offered treatment by Dr. Christina Davis due to a fairly serious soft tissue lower back injury. Dr. Davis suggested I come to the Center for QiGong Massage. At the time of my evaluation, Dr. Davis asked me several questions about my health and based on my responses, she was able to immediately offer some suggestions for me to improve my overall health with nutrition and supplements.

Dr. Davis, further, provided me with a Color Light Therapy evaluation. I was very much intrigued and impressed with Dr. Davis’ assessment of my responses to the Lights. She was ‘right on’ with what I was feeling at that moment and she offered some wonderful ideas on how to expand on those feelings in order to obtain an overall sense of wellbeing.

At the end of our session, Dr. Davis, offered me the QiGong Massage. Since I’d never heard of this type of massage, I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was very satisfied with the results. Dr. Davis explained that the QiGong equipment would make a beeping sound whenever it encountered an especially ‘tight’ area in my body. As I was there for a lower back injury, the equipment was very interested in that area. After several minutes of Dr. Davis gently moving the QiGong paddle over my lower back and hips, it became quiet and the discomfort in my back had lessened.

My encounters on a professional and private level have been great experiences and I look forward to even more times at Peace Valley Holistic Center with the wonderful people of the Center.

This nonprofit organization is the best in its field for helping families with autism and special needs. Many moms, dads and caregivers have been helped and supported by this organization's specialties. And all this is the result of a special woman's dream to improve the quality of life for anyone who has lost hope and needs a helping hand. This woman is Dr. Christina Davis.

The Great!

My personal experience has been through receiving the help for my special needs daughter. When she was not responding to any help from doctors or other healthcare professionals Dr. Davis stepped in and used her research and abilities to help her and also showed me what I needed to do. My daughter is now living successfully in the community.

My dream for the Peace Valley Holistic Center is to make these treatments and services available for all families with special needs and autism. But to make this happen there needs to be more donations. If i had the money i would make a huge donation to make this dream possible.

It has been not only a pleasure, but an eye-opening experience serving on the Board of the Peace Valley Holistic Center. Dr. Davis is one of the most selfless individuals I have ever had the honor to know and work with. Her focus, and that of the staff, is on the children and their families who face the challenges of autism every day. These families are given alternative, non-invasive therapies such as light and sound therapy, qi gong (needleless acupuncture), and diet / nutrition counseling along with legal advice not only to help them cope, but to offer palpable improvement and hope! The results speak for themselves.

I met with Dr. Davis and her daughter at the Peace Valley Holistic Center to discuss volunteer possibilities. The experience of being at the center had a healing effect on me that penetrated deep into my being. Ultimately, their sincere compassion and knowledge of alternative therapies had a calming and grounding effect on me, I felt like I was returning to a part of myself that had been missing for a long time.

Her work is both inspiring and encouraging and is helping many people who ordinarily may not have this opportunity.

Dr. Davis and the staff of PVHC are some of the kindest people I have had the pleasure of working with. They are child/family focused and their true payment is when they give the people who come to the center a healing. Dr. Davis's only concern is for improvement of health and well being of the child and the caretakers in their lives. I recommend the center to any person who is effected by autism or cares for someone on the spectrum. Dr. Davis knows that the only way a child can reach their full potential is to be cared for by a person who is also well cared for.
