Zachary M. Bush, MD
President, Director of Clinical Affairs
Zach Bush completed pre-med training and his baccalaureate degree in Spanish at the University of Colorado, Boulder in 1997. He met Rachel, his wife-to-be, at his church in Boulder in 1994, and married her June 1, 1996 in a stone chapel at the foot of the Colorado Rockies. In the subsequent years they had two beautiful kids, Ethan and Alissa, and Dr Bush completed medical school in 2002 at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver. During medical school he served as President of Student Council, and participated in curriculum design and education committees. Dr Bush won the James Waring Award in recognition of outstanding scholarship in the field of Internal Medicine in 2001. Following medical school he and his family moved to Charlottesville, VA to complete internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Virginia. In recognition of his clinical excellence and leadership, Dr Bush was selected to serve an additional year as Chief Resident in 2005-2006, which furthered his passion for teaching. He was then accepted into the prestigious Endocrinology fellowship at the University of Virginia where he honed his medical expertise in managing hormone disorders ranging from diabetes and thyroid conditions, to osteoporosis and tumors of the pituitary gland. During three years of research, Dr Bush initiated the first human studies using the vitamin A compound, bexarotene, for the treatment of the pituitary tumors that cause Cushing's disease. His early peer-reviewed publications gained local, national, and international recognition with receipt of a University wide research award for his novel human pilot study, and research presentations in San Francisco, Washington DC, San Diego, and Japan. He joined the UVA faculty as a Clinical Instructor in 2009. During the course of his eight years of medical practice at UVA Dr Bush developed an increasingly skeptical view on pharmaceutical studies and their purported clinical outcomes, and realized that his patients were far more motivated to pursue real health and healing than the medical community was giving them credit for. Dr Bush and his family purchased a wooded property in Esmont, VA in 2008 and they have spent every available weekend over the last 3 years building their hand-hewn timber home. Rachel has homeschooled Ethan and Alissa over the last seven years and Dr Bush states that he has learned more about healthful living from her than any of his 16 years of medical training. Her knowledge, conviction, and diligent practice of health have been pivotal in Dr Bush's creation of Revolution Health Center.

Evidence-Based Energy Healing
“barefoot and high tech…”
Surya’s lifelong studies in music, movement, and energy healing provide a rich context for his creative and healing work. He is convinced that the medicine of the future is here now. It is based on mathematical wave forms, sound, and light as the primary means to re-establish coherent patterns in the human energy field.
Surya continues to research and dialogue with a rich network of practitioners and leading researchers in physics and energy medicine and develop protocols which restore balance and enhance life energy.
He has trained in electrophonic imaging with Dr. Korotkov of St. Petersburg Technical Institute, and uses the GDV Kirlian camera to assess patients and track their return to optimal health. Surya’s healing sessions feature solid state hyper-physics tools developed by Dr. Dan Nelson, who holds a phD in quantum physics. These tools and protocols are a breakthrough technology which encodes information in a format that is “readable” through the main energy centers in the body. Solid State Technology operates in the primary realm from which the electromagnetic spectrum emanates. Various mathematically derived patterns become sets of instructions that allow biology to restore itself to optimal functioning.
Nature is the first teacher….
Surya’s studies in classical QiGong include a 200 hour teaching certification with Roger Jahnke (founder of the IIQTC) and a five year certification with Master Zhonxian Wu. Qigong is easier to learn than Taichi and provides the same health benefits of slow, conscious movement combined with active internal imagery inspired by nature. In China’s highly refined 4000 year old healthcare system, QiGong was the patient’s “homework”. Surya is also a certified BodyTalk practitioner and holds a BA in music from Dartmouth College and has recorded four albums of original songs. He lives with his wife Isa and son Ishvara in a passive solar log home which they built in beautiful

Thai Massage Therapist and Yoga instructor
Michele received her yoga certification from her long time mentor Anna Pittman, with whom she continues to study. She has been teaching yoga for eight years, and established her own yoga studio in Scottsville several years ago. Her style incorporates dynamic flow with a focus on alignment-based principles to fine-tune the postures. She finds the body to be the best guide, and believes that asana practice is about creating space in the body for breath, and space in the mind for joy. Michele offers classes and individual yoga lessons for all levels of experience and is able to accomodate those with health problems that make typical yoga stretches difficult.
Michele has also trained and practiced Thai Massage over the last 8 years. This healing art form has been handed down from master to student for more than 2,000 years. This integrated modality includes acupressure, energy meridian work, breath cultivation and yoga related stretches. Physically this bodywork improves circulation, flexibility, and joint mobilization. On an energetic level, Thai massage works with sen lines to promote the natural healing process on a subtle, yet deep level. The session is both stimulating and relaxing to create a perfect balance for the body.
See her website bluepadma.com for additional resources offered at her studio that is located just 1/2 mile from Revolution Health Center.
Tracey is a graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing in Miami, FL, the only four-year energy healing degree program in the United States. Her previous interdisciplinary degree in Psychology, Sociology and Philosophy and previous social work experience provided an exceptional foundation for becoming a certified healer. Fortunately for our community and our patients, Tracey has chosen to put her healing hands to work in Albemarle County in the studio that she and her husband have created.
In a nutshell, energy work helps to eliminate old patterns of experiencing oneself and the world by clearing blocks in an individual's energy field. It is a co-creative process in which the healer and the client journey together on a path toward wholeness. However, it is the client who directs the pace of the healings and the integration of changes into his or her life.
