Judy Johnson Grigg, Energy Healer, Reiki Master
In 2008 I made the commitment to get back to the health and fitness field. I retired from personal training in 2002 and did not want to go back to that field. I really wanted to work with people at a different level of wellness. Massage was something that had always interested me. As a former athlete and fitness professional, I knew and understood the benefits of massage. I felt this career would really be an area where I would have success in helping people to reach their wellness goals. I have studied a number of massage modalities including; Swedish, Therapeutic, Deep tissue, Sport, Trigger point, Structural Integration, Cranial-Sacral, Acupressure, Hot Stone and Stretching are just some of the areas I have experience in and have utilized in Treatments.
With my background in fitness, I understand that a combination of different massage techniques truly can benefit clients. I believe in having a “toolbox” and using what fits the client during their session. I feel I can accomplish a wonderful relaxing massage as well as work on a client’s need for structural balance. If I have to pick a specific area, I would have to say I do my best to meet the client’s specific needs in their session. I believe each person is an individual, and there is no “cookie-cutter” way to assist someone in having a better quality of life.
My goal for all of my clients is always geared toward the client feeling better and being able to live a better quality of life.”
Tracy Bochiechio, Reiki Master, Angel and Tarot Cards
I spent 20 years in a Corporate environment and although the compensation was good, I was not fulfilled on a soul level. I began asking questions to the Universe like “is this all there is? Immediately following my question, a chain of events took place that put me on a new path. My intuitive gifts opened up and I began seeing angel numbers, animal totems etc. I studied angel numbers for 10 years and their meaning as the angels communicated with me. I am a channeler for Source and the angelic realm. My passion and soul path is to provide messages to you. I use angel oracle cards and tarot cards as a tool to channel for people to help them empower themselves and their lives. I am a Usui Reiki Master and facilitate deep healing and relaxation through clearing energy blocks within the body. It is my purpose and honor to assist you on your journey back to SELF.
