“My experiences with Donna's unique style of Acupressure have been powerful and spiritually deep.  We unblocked something that connected me to a deeper creative energy and allowed me to effortlessly let go of some old experiences that needed to be released. I have permanently shifted to a more positive and energized place.”  

--Irene Walsh, singer/filmmaker

"Sessions with Donna are extremely relaxing and opening. The true magic in her work shines as I experience the cumulative benefits for days."

--Christopher Sherwood, attorney

These treatments help my body _and_ my mind get relief.  

--CT, truck driver & retired teacher

"I had a history of an auto-immune disorder with chronic lower back and hip pain every day. After my sessions, the pain and fatigue were gone and I had more energy than I have felt in years. I have gone months without my chronic daily pain returning.  I am deeply grateful to Donna and recommend her highly skilled treatment method wholeheartedly to anyone looking to get to the bottom of a chronic health issue and turn it around."

--Maureen Wheeler, health educator

I always have a smile on my face after this treatment. I never thought something like this could really work--it really relieves stress for me. You go all day with a lot of stress, being in traffic, feeling agitated, and so on. But when I'm laying down on the table my body calms down and all the stress goes away. I feel refreshed and energized.

"Having a session with Donna feels like "coming home" to my body... gentle, powerful, and deeply nourishing, it helps me to shed layers and layers of stuff and reconnect with the ease underneath."

--Rosa Zubizaretta, social worker

This treatment is unique. I can feel the muscles in my neck relaxing. It’s working. I was able to go dancing again last weekend.

"I want to thank you for starting me on the road to recovery when I was diagnosed with Graves Disease five years ago. I'm now completely off medication for Graves and allergies, and full-time gluten-free, as I focus on taking care of my immune system as part of my daily routine. I have since completed an intensive 2-year graduate program--something I couldn't have done without first getting my immune system under control and having stress-management systems in place!  So THANK YOU!" 

--R. Reeves, art director

"The six months I spent working with Donna truly changed my life. Years of doctors' visits and medications were not significantly improving my health problems, and I was scared and frustrated. Donna was a wonderful inspiration to me. She assessed my needs and created a plan of action to ensure that all areas would be addressed.  She gave me practical resources as well as emotional and spiritual support to get on the right track for healthy living. I will always be grateful for her tremendous heart and her extraordinary expertise in human wellness.  

--Valerie Payton Newburn, teacher

In her classes, Donna offered us great tools for relaxation in this hectic world! 

--ID, social worker

The Seva Stress Release workshop was great!  Donna’s knowledge shines through in her clear presentation, and the practical hands on work helped me really learn the technique.

Chakra Tai Chi is so much easier for me to do than seated meditation.  I felt a glow and a flow of energy almost immediately.  Donna is a terrific teacher!  She was so clear and so willing to explain things until we understood them.  She was patient and kind. 

--Participant in Chakra Tai Chi class

Donna's nutrition workshops were excellent. I learned to cook better for my children, and made changes to eat better myself.  I now make our meals healthier by cooking spinach or green vegetables with eggs and putting fresh fruit in plain yogurt. I use sea salt now instead of table salt, and my kids are learning to love brown rice!  

--Joselyn Fernandez, parent

The mind-body connection focus of the workshop was an eye opener!  I learned so much about myself.  

--PM, retired social worker

Success story! We adopted a young cat whose severe anxiety led him to eat household objects (resulting in several ER visits and medical procedures) and compulsively suckle my arms as a means to calm himself down. We were desperate for help. Hermes immediately responded to Donna's sessions, becoming much more bonded to me, my husband and our other cat. His attention span increased and he became less skittish. Though I was rarely present for the Reiki sessions myself, I also felt a positive shift in myself and certainly witnessed this in my husband and other cat. Since then, both my husband and I have benefitted from taking Donna's Reiki Level 1 and 2 classes. I definitely recommend Donna's healing Reiki and her other gifts."
