A lot of people have memories of 9-1-1. Where they were, what they were doing. What happened or didn’t happen to their friends and family. For me- I have a story too.
In September of 2001- I was living in Northern NJ. I was married, I then had a 7 year old son and was working as a Dietitian at Pascack Valley Hospital teaching Nutrition in the Cardiac Rehab Department.
I had just walked my second grader to school and went home to get ready for work. I turned on the News and I watched the World Trade Center being attacked and then collapsing. We lived 10 miles from NYC at the time.
Nothing happened to me or my family. Yet thousands of people just a few short miles away had perished. It was a horrifying day.
In the next few days I developed what I thought was Food Poisoning. My stomach was a wreck and I felt “sick to my stomach”. This went on for weeks- I thought I would handle it- I was a Dietitian after all.
Sometime about 8 weeks later, one of my dear friends Leslie, suggested I try a Reiki Session. I said-“are you kidding- that stuff is quackery”. She gently asked me how did my lunch taste? I was eating broth and rice. “Okay, okay, give me the number”. I proceeded to call a Reiki Practitioner/Master named Liz and set up an appointment. This had better be good- this couldn’t work- was all I could think.
I had my session with Liz, and within 24 hours my stomach had settled in and I was stunned. What had she done?
Now it is 15 years later. I have never stopped bring Good Nutrition to my clients- ever. I stand in Science and Research with my Nutrition Practice.I've been doing this for well over 30 years. I even bring advanced Functional Nutrition Tests to you and much much more.
I also stand in the belief that you can also heal yourself with alternative modalities, not excluding yoga, therapy, exercise and more. I offer three healing modalities, Reiki, Integrated Energy Therapy and Universal Rays Healing. All of them support well being. They do not replace medical treatment, but they can reduce stress and set a tummy straight or more.
I practice what I believe in. I believe there is a certain amount that we can assist to heal on it’s own with Nutrition and Energy Healing.
If you ever feel "sick to your stomach", or wonder if there is another approach to wellness then give some thought to this story.
If you are interested in Healing Work or Good Nutrition- then I am very happy you are reading this.
Sign up for a class, a session or call me to share your concerns. If you would like to offer this kind of work to others- contact me. I will assist you with the greatest professional knowledge that I have.

A Brief Overview
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an "attunement" given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of "life force energy" to improve one's health and enhance the quality of life.
