Read the Whole Story

Celine was a smart, talented, 13 year old girl who had a tremendous amount of fear and stress about taking weekly exams.

When her mother called me, she was desperate and disappointed. Celine had finished last year with an A+ grade, but in the latest year she was very anxious and fearful about her weekly exams. The amount of stress and fear was quite high. It made her blood pressure drop. She also felt nauseous and had lots of stomach pain.

After one session, we found the root of the problem, and cleared it with various techniques, including EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), SK (Spiritual Kinesiology), and R&A (Reframing and Anchoring). I supported her with a few extra DIY (do it yourself) acupressure techniques for her to use during moments of fear and stress.

Also, I made a stress relief blend for her to wear on exam days and that’s it… As a result, Celine finished the year calmly, with a high grade.

Celine received a surprisingly positive result in a short time. Though each case is different and no one can promise this kind of result, this is the reason why  use a “Try it on everything” approach to processes like EFT and SK. Who knows what might be possible?

Read Marj’s Whole Story

I met Angele almost 4 years ago. At that time my husband had recently been diagnosed with Leukemia and I was in quite a depleted state. Trying to cope with his illness and take care of our two boys, our farm and work full time.

When I met Angele I felt so comfortable and at ease. I spent about two years with her doing counseling and also receiving Reiki. I had tried doing counseling in the past to help overcome some childhood trauma but was unsuccessful in finding a professional that I could truly trust and open up to.

Angele was finally that person. She has helped me more than she will ever know. She has a comforting way that makes you feel safe and able to share anything without judgement. 

Reiki helped me discover self love and self care. It opened my mind, body and soul and allowed me to feel more than I have ever felt. I have grown both emotionally and spiritually and it is all thanks to Angele. She has given me the tools and knowledge to deal with past and present issues.

Angele offers nothing but genuine words of advice and true compassion. Her knowledge of Holistic Healing has opened my eyes to new methods of healing that have clearly worked for me more than most traditional methods.

I continue to see Angele and would recommend her services to anyone. Angele’s encouragement and motivation inspired me to become a Life Coach. Not only to help others but to help myself understand why people react and respond to life situations. She has helped me reach for my own personal goals and I will forever be grateful. 

Marj’s story is an example of how holistic practitioners may provide results when conventional methods fall short. it also highlights the importance of finding the right practitioner for you, which you can explore in the ***

It’s not often in life that I get the honor to meet an EFT master practitioner and a mozzarella rope maker all in one. John popped into my life right at the perfect time (isn’t it always)

John has brought this beautiful mindful practice of EFT to my life and it has created a more gentle healing process. It is healing process that I continue to go through, one that is far more delightful because of John and his incredible insight into the heart (he’s a great listener).

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and what John has taught me, is how to rewire of belief patterns that are no longer serving me. Then he guides through repatterning the new belief systems. His gentle, loving, funny bedside manner help as well because I feel so safe with him.

In fact, he was able to guide me through a hypnosis process combined with EFT, TWICE! That is huge for me given this brain of mine tends to run on massive overdrive, which I now use EFT to help calm.

I cannot give John enough KUDOS for showing up in my life and giving me tools to maneuver the process. I am grateful beyond words for this incredible human being and I will be forevermore changed because he cared and knows his stuff. He is the best there is, hands down.

Thank you John and to anyone reading this, you’ve just been blessed by meeting John Thaddeus Fiore.

Read Emily’s Whole Story

Emily reported experiencing waves of exhaustion for the last 5 or 6 weeks. She needed a lot of sleep and if she did anything extra, she could be tired for a whole week. She was concerned that the condition was not improving.

At the beginning of our time together, Emily reported feeling groggy, foggy, and unclear. During the healing process, she felt energy shifting in positive ways. After completing the healing, hardly any of the symptoms remained. She felt clearer and as they spoke she noticed that the little remaining symptoms were gradually receding.

We continued with a second round and afterwards, Emily reported feeling much more clear andI felt that she had opened to a broader perspective. A day later, Emily reported this to me: “I am so grateful for the healing! There have been huge shifts. I came home today feeling energized and finished some cleaning that had been left. I have not been able to do anything in the evenings. I am looking forward to feeling like the ‘old me’ – alive and energized.”

Five months later, Emily reported that she has continued to feel stronger and stronger. She said that the “old me” was indeed back!
