It is particularly suited for all types of chronic illness, pain, stress and suffering caused by a lack of energy at the cellular level, including cancer, diabetes, COPD, asthma, sleep disorders, burnout and athletic recovery.

From this DMI consultation, you will obtain information about the performance of each of your 12 organ meridians understood in Traditional Chinese Medical science (i.e., liver, gall bladder, lungs, large intestine, heart, stomach, etc.). By accessing specific points on the hands and feet with a DMI measuring device, a graphic report will be generated that can be used to reveal which organ systems are excessive or deficient in energy, if there is an imbalance between the right and left side of the body in energy performance for a specific organ, or if there is a total body energy deficiency. The result is a graphic report that is used to develop your custom health program to balance meridians, including Qi Gong exercises, sound therapy, and Gua sha stone and acupressure treatments.

Each “MYE” session assesses your Energetic Wellness, which is the alignment and flow of your personal energy. When your energy is out of alignment, your physicality suffers and you experience pain—physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. This may also lead to a lack of boundaries with others and a feeling that there is more to life than what you see and feel. Identifying and releasing blocks to your energy movement provides pain relief, clarity and insight that allows you to move forward and feel better. In addition to what you experience during your session, you will receive tools and practices* for use in your daily life, helping you learn what your unique energy feels like and how to manage it, while also learning how to stay anchored as you navigate other people’s energy. This work includes intuitive guidance and information, energetic scanning, Reiki, essentials oils chosen specifically for your session, breath work and visualization. *Imagine yourself tuning in to a radio station (the station is you) and adjusting the dial until you have the clearest reception (alignment/connection in yourself). The static (past beliefs, feelings and circumstances) that you sometimes encounter is moved through, quickly and easily.

Balance YOUR healing energy with Reiki and crystals. Reiki was developed over 100 years ago in Japan. These treatments replenish, re-awaken and balance the natural healing energy of the body. Reiki nourishes all parts of you: body, mind, and spirit, which can become weakened due to stress, poor diet, emotional attachments and other issues. Picture the rings on a tree trunk. Each ring can tell the story of that tree’s life just as your muscles reveal your past health. Let Reiki help you to open the old and start receiving the new you, or better said, the “You” that you always have been. Crystals have been used for healing throughout history. Crystals work with the human energy field and can move, absorb, focus, direct and diffuse energy within the body. Working with crystalline energy helps the body to find its natural rhythm.
In this first of three Reiki levels, referred to as Reiki I or “Shoden” in Japanese, you will learn the Reiki history, how to perform self-Reiki, how to give Reiki to someone else, and you will be attuned for life to the Reiki energy. Bianka Steinfeldt, Master Reiki, will take you through this two-day program using the therapeutic technique of the founder, Mikao Usui. In order to prepare for the class and to balance your mind and body: avoid alcohol that dulls the mind, avoid high protein food that requires energy for digestion, eat fruits and vegetables that are easily digested, drink plenty of water and avoid caffeinated drinks that cause the mind to be overactive. Keep an open mind even though you may have questions. Just enjoy the experience you are giving yourself!
Do you have days where you feel lower back pain or stiffness? Does it sometimes radiate down into your buttock or leg? Have you been feeling neck pain or stiffness that prevents you from turning and at times even pain or tingling down your shoulder blade or arm? Were you told that your posture is getting worse even though you have stretched and strengthened your core? In this session, Dr. Suprun will perform a mechanical assessment of your problem based on the prestigious McKenzie Method and will tailor a specific program for you. Often, drastic changes occur within the first session. Dr. Suprun will help find a solution to fix that persistent pain and will teach you important strategies to prevent recurrence. For more on the McKenzie Method, please visit mckenzieinstituteusa.org.

This nutritional evaluation is done with one finger prick and a drop of blood. The image is transmitted via a digital camera onto a monitor, so you and I can both see what is inside your blood!
