Susan DeAraujo Benedek, L.A.c., MAOM, R.N.

She opened the Be Well Holistic Center with a vision to provide the Southeastern Massachusetts community with a comfortable healing space for Oriental medicine and other integrative therapies. Originally trained in western medicine as a registered nurse, Susan began studying eastern medicine when she found it personally effective for a variety of different health concerns for her and her young family that allowed her to take a more pro-active approach and avoid allopathic medicines and unnecessary procedures. She has embraced the concepts that allow health and wellness care, by natural means, to tap into individual’s ability to heal and she brings that healing to her patients.
