Reiki, E.F.T. & Energy Healing

COMPLEMENTARY MEDICINE …  REIKI – ENERGY HEALING: Reiki as is universal or spiritually guided life force energy used in healing the mind, body and spirit. It is a natural, alternative  complementary healing modality compatible with western medicine and other forms of complementary healing. No matter where the person may be at a certain point in their life, Reiki will balance and harmonize energy within and around the recipient and the facilitator of healing. Reiki  opens the heart, expands our love consciousness and advances our evolvement. Reiki is a natural, non-invasive, soft touch hands-on-technique that is thousands of years old. In Japanese, “Rei” means Divine Intelligence, “Ki” is life force energy, that which animates all living creations.  The Reiki Ray is an extremely powerful healing energy. and is one of the few forms of healing that can be used to heal oneself. The energy is also effective for healing and stress reduction for pets as well as people. Reiki is usually a hands-on-healing modality, which means that the giver’s hands rest on the recipient’s fully clothed body. Locations used are along the chacras and areas where unbalance is detected. Since it also works in surrounding energy fields, it is not necessary to lay hands directly on the body for it to be effective. The Reiki technique balances the physical organs and glands controlling the functions of the body and its emotions. The applied use of Reiki can calm, heal and enliven both the giver and the recipient. It has been reported to release emotional and mental stress and toxins, reduce or eliminate pain, chronic and acute physical problems and maintain health. It can enhance spirituality, peace, balance, and create a general sense of well being. I’m aware of living in this beautiful energy since my first initiation in 1987, although I suspect it’s been with me all along! My MindBodySpirit Tapestry(c) technique is often a combination of the complementary modalities Reiki-Plus, Cranio-Sacral, Acupressure, Massage, Imagery, Dialog, Hypnotherapy and Breathwork.  “Janice helped me to see a whole new way of looking at life…I became free of pain in both mind and body. ” Carol, Croton-on-Hudson, NY   Reiki Energy Attunement Lineage of Rev.

Relationship Counsel & Enrichment

Our relationship with everyone and everything is a vital part of life. I believe relationship enhancement is work we are all meant to do – as individuals, and as couples. As you may have experienced, the most challenging are with those we love!. This is because “Love brings up anything unlike itself for the purpose of healing and release.”

Psychotherapy & Integrative Therapy

“The reality of life is that your perceptions — right or wrong — influence everything else you do. When you get a proper perspective of your perceptions, you may be surprised how many other things fall into place.”~ Roger Birkman  One thing that people all over the world have in common is the desire to be happy; we all want to enrich our lives in some way. This inner desire we share is a motivating life force, sometimes buried, yet able to be recharged and resurrected. Enrichment therapy sessions can offer new perspectives that open your receptivity to the idea that we often have choices than we think. For example, we can replace the thought of “That’s impossible!” with “it’s possible!” which opens us to hope. Woody Guthrie said “We are all hoping machines.” I agree. Please be clear this is not about “magical thinking”; it is about reframing and replacing thoughts and actions that no longer serve us, with those that do. We still have to keep taking the steps leading to our goals and desires, yet we may now be able to make better choices that avoid blocks to success. In practice for many years supporting individuals and relationships along life’s journey, I’m experienced in addressing most concerns and situations regarding the mind, body, emotions, and spirit. I’ve helped many people, mostly young to older adults, to significantly improve the quality of their lives by gaining clarity, breaking through blocks, and achieving a sense of well-being. I see a diverse population of clients seeking support with issues including mental, physical, or spiritual health challenges from life-threatening illness to employment change, from the trauma of divorce to the joy of uniting, to managing a stressful life, feeling stuck, and getting  creative juices flowing. My practice covers mental/emotional/behavioral issues such as – anxiety, bereavement, mood fluctuations, depression, anxiety, stress, PTSD, low self-esteem, relationship concerns, abuse, transition adjustment, identity/gender concerns, addictive patterns. Also challenges of physical illness or injury, and food related issues; spiritual and philosophical questions relating to the “Who am I; where am I going?’ stages of life. Your therapeutic process can be short or long term; sessions can include life and wellness coaching as well as in-depth process to meet your goals. My work with individuals and couples is progressive and powerful; my approach is active and process-oriented; personalized and creative, eclectic, heart-centered, intuitive, occasionally humorous, and collaborative. I provide a non-judgmental, comfortable setting where you are seen as an individual and heard as a unique being on your own journey, with strengths, gifts and vulnerabilities; capable of learning, healing and growth. I’ll support you with empathy, insight and new possibilities as you gain insights about your own thoughts and behaviors – both those that work for you and those that are counterproductive. Using this as a roadmap, we can clear obstacles and utilize strengths along the path to your destination. I’ll help you clarify your issues so you can manage them more effectively or resolve them. Together, we’ll build a healthy foundation open to possibilities with good will, self-care, awareness, compassion and acceptance. From these supportive roots, you can expect increased esteem, confidence, communication and connection skills, as well as peace and harmony with yourself and others. I offer complementary medicine modalities including energy balancing, cranio-sacral, breathwork, hypnotherapy, imagery, stress release etc.; techniques that can progress you more effectively than with dialog alone. In session, we’ll look at what works, as well as what does not help you achieve the life you want. Effective counseling is a two way street. It takes a cooperative effort by...

Testimonials

What some of my clients have said about me… Weddings: “Dear Janice, I wanted to say thank you for the most beautiful ceremony you gave us yesterday. It touched us and many of our guests. Many commented that it was the most personal and heart-filled ceremony they had ever experienced. Your words will remain in our heart for the rest of our lives. It was particularly meaningful to me since you have been my life coach and support in last few months…I felt blessings by the air, wind, son and the mother earth. I cannot thank you enough for the gift you gave us. I am so happy that you are a big part of my/our new journey. With much love. Tai” “Through 26 years of experience as a professional photographer, this is one of the few weddings that had a very personal approach. It was spiritual, based on love, family values, togetherness, and included the children. It was from her heart, truly, for bride and groom brought together in spirit, and both families got involved in the process. I was touched; behind the camera is a man – it touched my soul as I participated in exchange of spiritual togetherness and community.”  Al from H&H  photographers www.handphotographers.com  at Lynda and Andrew’s wedding. “Thank you Janice for the lovely ceremony you performed for us on such short notice.  You were so awesome.  Our family was happy with the ceremony and enjoyed having it in your lovely home.  Thank you for everything.  Our deepest gratitude.”  Maria and Victor, Bronx, NY “I’m still floating on air, and I can’t thank you enough for your participation in our wedding. Your ‘words’ made everything feel just so right, so heartfelt, so candid and special-to everyone present. Like I told you at the start of that morning, you are a most beautiful soul and I feel absolutely privileged for having met you. I plan on staying in-touch, and I’d recommend you to any couple in a heartbeat.” Marianne, from Yonkers, NY “Hi Janice, …I see many weddings, but this was such a special one since Gaby and Jim’s intimate ceremony was personally written and therefore so meaningful. I really respect the way you spoke and read the ceremony as I tell the brides and grooms who come to see me how important it is for friends and family to be the witness to vows of commitment. Sometimes they are so caught up in the huge plans, (probably thought about since childhood) that they can forget the why of it all. Perhaps because I’ve spent so much time in 3rd world countries, photographed wars, refugee camps and all kinds of other stories, I can get a grip on the joy and the meaning of the ceremony as well as the fun of the party…Much regards, TRIX” TRIX ROSEN, Photojournalist  212 228-8100 Trix@TrixRosen.com www.Trixrosen.com “Hi Rev. Janice – Thank you so much for the lovely wedding ceremony. It was really beautiful & meaningful – and we received many comments from our guests as well. We are back from the honeymoon, but still basking in the afterglow of such a wonderful wedding day… Thanks again!  Raebekah” “We wanted to thank you for offering a beautiful service at tour wedding on October 23rd. It was so special and many people commented on the lovely words. We also wanted to say how comforting and caring you were in guiding us and preparing us for the big day. It was the best day of our lives.” Allison and John “I did want to express to you the gratitude and fulfillment...

Transformational Breathwork

Transformational Breathwork

 THE POWER OF BREATH… In Buddhist and yogic traditions, people claim to have reached an enlightened state by doing nothing more than paying attention to the rising and falling of their breath. What easier way could there be to reach such a state? Especially since breathing – following the ebb and flow of your breath – is an intrinsic part of meditation. By paying attention to your breath, you will rapidly change your state of consciousness, begin to relax, and slowly detach from ordinary awareness. We can transform our reaction to stress with mindful breathing!  Try this Breath Break… • Take a quick body/mind inventory; just notice how you are feeling now. • Sit up straight with uncrossed legs and arms and close your eyes.
 Breathe in through your nose to the count of four, focusing on the sensation of the air moving through your nostrils, your chest and belly expanding. In this moment you are consciously breathing in new life. • Breathe out for a count of four, feeling the air as it leaves your nose, your chest and belly relaxing. In this moment you are releasing what no longer serves you. • 
Pause for one beat at the end of your exhale before you breathe in again. • Continue for two minutes. If a thought grabs your attention, just notice it and just say to yourself, “breathing,” and gently bring your focus back to your breath. The idea is not to engage in thoughts, just to focus on your breath. While breathing mindfully, you are in the present moment and have transformed your energy pattern. Notice how you feel now. This is the beginning of meditation! Now, read on to learn about how active breathing can become a powerful healer.   Rebirthing – Take a Breath, Transform this Moment, Heal Your Life! I’ve trained in the technique called Rebirthing – a simple, gentle, yet powerful breathing technique, which can transform your mind, body, emotions and spirit. It can also transform how you perceive yourself, others and the world in general. It is common for us to hold our breath and/or breath in a shallow manner when we are stressed. Many of us have never learned how to breathe deeply and fully. Holding the breath causes unexpressed emotions to get pushed into the cells in the body. The body will often react by creating physical as well as emotional problems. When we inspire fully, we are more alive and in the moment because we are taking in the nourishing breath of life. A Breathwork session can be transformative for anyone (my mother, while in her 70’s benefited!). I use Breathwork during some hands-on healing sessions, or alone, often in a series, for anyone uncomfortable with a hands-on approach. I encourage you to participate as much as you can during and in-between sessions. I serve as a facilitator and a breath coach. Helping to ensure that you breathe in a connected manner, and suggest changes to the breathing pattern to facilitate your process throughout the session. When breathing consciously, your body will relax. You release tension and negativity, and often access memories and unconscious thoughts, that don’t serve your conscious desires and goals, the ones that keep you stuck in unhealthy patterns. We will challenge the negative patterns by reframing the thoughts that create and perpetuate them. I offer techniques that are successful in changing underlying thoughts. Incorporating new thoughts will allow you to change behavior patterns with less conscious effort. Breathwork, rebirthing is a true mind, body, spirit integrated experience, encouraging and supporting your true aliveness with a grounded sense of joy, inner peace, and harmony. The Rebirthing...
