Patricia has a superb knowledge of women's health and will serve the women in her community with grace and careful attention. Thank you for the work that you do!

"Patty made an important and valuable contribution to the Parent Education program here at  Hartford Hospital.  Patty's  personal desire to teach yoga to pregnant women was the catalyst for our hospital to offer this program.  Patty was an excellent teacher, well liked by the pregnant women and couples attending her classes.

I am so thankful I found Patty!  She goes above and beyond to get to know you and help you in any way she can.  She helped me heal after my miscarriage and recently helped us get pregnant again with the help of Mercier therapy and her wealth of knowledge.  I always leave her spa/wellness center with new information about women's health and more relaxed.  I highly recommend her.  She has truly been a blessing.

Awesome place for pregnant women or women struggling with infertility.



Very unique, quaint and relaxing  little clinic/spa/wellness center in the heart of Old Avon Village, right next to Moosavi Rugs, across from the nail salon. Came in for Auricular therapy (cooler and less painful than acupuncture and only on the ears--lasts for 4 days) and left with a wealth of information for other women's health services. They offer a huge variety including: fertility programs, massage, aromatherapy, reiki, classes from meditation to infant care and everything in between. Patty Almeida is also a nurse, very well educated, friendly and extremely welcoming (and also amazing with kids -- I brought my 1 year old to the session and her steady hands were still able to insert the tiny silver seeds into the little crevices of my ear with a jiggly kid reaching for her bracelets on my lap)! Highly recommended :)
