One who is connected to the Energy Stream is more powerful than a million who are not.

Reiki is a Complementary Therapy
Reiki provides a holistic and complementary way of serving a person's health needs by supporting them physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. From her experience as an Occupational Therapist, Anne enriches her healing practice by assisting clients to bridge the gap between traditional medicine and energy healing in order to achieve holistic results that benefits body, mind and spirit. Reiki is a form of energy healing. As an intuitive therapy Reiki facilitates a shift in consciousness during the healing process over time leading to greater awareness of oneself, offering improved mental clarity, emotional stability in relationships while fostering a sense of gratitude, optimism and connection to your world and the Universe.
Over 90% of today’s illnesses are the result of exposure to prolonged stress or suppressed trauma held within the body. Using Reiki, breath work, visualization, sound healing and other tools, Anne enables clients to release imbalances often caused by limiting core beliefs and emotional traumas regardless of when they occurred. Energy centers called chakras in the human energy field support the health of our endocrine system, the nervous system, internal organs and associated glands. Life’s daily stresses can easily imbalance these energy centers, causing them to become restricted thus diminishing the flow of life force energy through and around the body. True health according to Asian medical teachings requires harmony within these subtle bodies of energy in addition to the physical body. Inhibition of stress hormones via deep relaxation allows for alignment and balance of these energy centers to support your physical emotional, mental and spiritual health. Physical symptoms from trauma and prolonged stress clear naturally as the subtle flow of life force energy to affected areas is restored allowing your core vibrational frequency and vitality rise. As your energetic health improves, you discover that you are no longer at the mercy of your emotions and can engage in conscious living from your heart.
Educating clients in supporting their own well-being through positive energy practices is an important aspect of Anne’s healing practice. She is adept at translating seemingly complex wisdom teachings and energy healing principles into practical application for daily life. In this way Anne empowers clients to discover and strengthen the beautiful essence that lies within and to face life’s lessons with gratitude as an opportunity to create a more beautiful “garden of well-being” within.
Energy healing offers an experience of peace and tranquility as the body achieves balance and homeostasis. For those seeking further exploration on their spiritual journey, Anne offers pineal gland activation to open this master intuitive center of the brain. Located at the center of our brains and related to our perception of light and circadian rhythms, many consider the pineal gland to be the “Seat of the Soul”, hence making it a pertinent part of your emotional and spiritual well-being which will enhance your physical health.
Energy healing often facilitates a shift in consciousness leading to a greater awareness of oneself, improved mental clarity, emotional stability in relationships, a sense of gratitude, optimism and connection to your world. Emphasizing a quantum perspective and a heart centered living approach,
Anne offers individual sessions for adults and children, healing circles and is available to teach Reiki certificate classes at various locations in Northern Westchester and Armonk.
Balancing 4 Life: Mission Statement
The goal of my healing practice is to help you experience relief from daily stressors and traumas while realizing the power you hold with your thoughts and beliefs to influence the physical dis-ease caused by old emotional traumas and limiting beliefs. Through balance and alignment, energy healing will help transform your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies gently in a way that is safe and complementary to traditional medicine. We have an innate ability to heal ourselves if we treat the human energy field as well as the physical body.
