Vivian Varese, MD is a physician who specializes in functional medicine in Acton, Massachusetts. Dr.  Varese has been in private practice since 1984 dedicated in her work as a healer physician. Emphasis has always been to educate and empower each person to select the best path toward the highest level of well-being that is desired.   Take advantage of this opportunity to enter into a co-responsible relationship for the purpose for expanding your well-being on all levels.

Dr. Varese attended medical school at the Medical School of the Autonomous University at Guadalajara, Mexico. She graduated in 1979 and completed her 4 years of internship and residency at New York Beekman Hospital in New York City. Since 1984 she has conducted her medical practice in Acton, Massachusetts, offering integrated services including nutrition, herbology, homeopathy, and flower essences with special emphasis on optimizing hormonal, digestive and immune functions through the most natural means possible and with minimal use of pharmaceuticals.

In 1989 Dr. Varese began to incorporate hands-on healing modalities into her medical practice. She began with Reiki for which she acquired Third Degree Mastery. A variety of direct-healing modalities were added to and combined with her use of Reiki each year until 1992 when she experienced Jin Shin Jyutsu. In 1993, the doctor attended three 5-day intensive Jin Shin Jyutsu courses, acquiring practitioner accreditation in a brief period of time. Repeat and specialized courses have been attended and added to her experience since that year. From then to the present day Jin Shin Jyutsu remains a vital part of Dr. Varese’s daily practice.

Primary care, in its usual sense, is not offered by Dr. Varese. For this purpose, you must maintain your relationship with your primary care physician.  Dr. Varese has always utilized a comprehensive assessment of the major body systems along with diet and lifestyle evaluation in order to coordinate traditional and non-traditional resources to design each patient's plan for optimal function.  Other medical specialists, as well as non-MD practitioners, may also be enlisted to compose the healthcare team that best meets each person's specific needs.

Bioenergetic Medicine

  • Flower Essences

    As each patients situation may require, I offer the use of Flower Essences as an added resource in a comprehensive treatment plan.  Flower Essences are liquid preparations of water instilled with the essence or core vibration of a flowering plants petals to deliver keynote qualities that may have been lost from ones overall mental-emotional make-up.  By working on the mental and emotional states, Flower Essences relieve stress and help remove roadblocks to the overall healing process.  Flower Essences are completely safe and combine easily with all other components of any treatment plan.



    Jin Shin Jyutsu

    Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient healing art that is well suited to our modern times.  Jin Shin Jyutsu has been part of my practice since 1993.


    A key feature of Jin Shin Jyutsu is that it can be used at home as self-help, thus adding to your resources toward feeling at your best!


    I teach most of my patients a bit of Jin Shin Jyutsu during a consult as well as in occasional class settings.

    I also offer personal 1-hour sessions at my office.
