A very warm and happy Grüezi from the Swiss Miss.
My name is Barbara Alexandra Dummermuth. I was born and raised in Switzerland.
Since early childhood I remember my parents and both grandmothers being very much in tune with nature. My mom was a pioneer of her time growing organic foods in 1976, when no one even thought of anything like that. She had a deep respect for nature and avoided chemicals whenever possible. My father's mother, who nearly died at the age of 23, changed her life by making her own herbal remedies, creams, extracts and lived to a healthy 83 years of age.
Not only because of the culture but also heavily influenced by my parents and grandparents, from childhood on, I had an awareness that there is more than the eye can see. It comes with no surprise I ended up in the field of complementary and alternative medicine. My profession gives me great pleasure and is more of a passion than work. Healthy living is a lifestyle and not a fashion statement or a trend. It requires to take responsibilities for our actions and choices and sometimes we need to reconsider our choices.
In fall of 2014, after spending 4 years in Switzerland, I returned to Boston/US, my home of choice. On July 30, 2015, my dream of opening up the first Swiss Healing Center named Laughing Buddha Boston came true. My aspiration of opening up the center is to provide people options for a healthier and happier life by offering workshops, classes and treatments to empower through education and exposure. Prevention, healing and achieving awareness is the cornerstone for a happier and healthier life.
I am extremely excited to introduce you to many wonderful healers, speakers, and teachers in form of custom-tailored, holistic, integrative and complementary high quality services.
Feel free to explore our center either in person or online. Stay tuned by checking our online programs frequently. You never know, there might be something of interest to you at some point.
Take note that treatments are by appointment only. Either book online or contact us via the contact us page or call 617.936.4168.
With warm wishes and bright smiles,
Barbara, the Swiss Miss
