Through the years Wendy has always been fascinated with healing. She studied Quantum Touch, Reiki (Certified Reiki Master), and other Hands on Healing modalities; yet, she never felt that she could really sense and address a person's specific problems and needs via 'energy only' methods. Then, one day years later, her husband told her of a Thai Massage retreat coming up. She attended and fell in love with it.
Wendy traveled to Thailand and studied Thai massage with several local master teachers When she returned to the USA, she decided that massage is what she wanted to do. She then studied at the Tennessee School of Therapeutic Massage and since then has not stopped studying and learning.

Beth's therapy practice is dedicated to sharing powerful transformational tools that help to dissolve and transmute symptoms of mental and physical dis-ease.
Beth believes that the wisdom of the body (natural law), housed in our very own DNA and cellular structure, provides the pathless path into balanced states of focus, gratitude and enthusiasm. Getting in alignment with our unique path is a courageous intention and choice that benefits all. Many times our journey begins with following and listening to uncomfortable symptoms that are trying to get our attention.
Mindfulness, embodiment and spaciousness for "what is" are the tools that Beth practices and shares with individuals and groups who seek a more harmonious experience within themselves and with their world.

Behavior Analyst | Therapist
Neysa specializes in Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Clinical Hypnosis in the treatment of anxiety and stress-related disorders; and their effects on relationships, health, and quality of life.
Neysa's interest in 'what makes people tick' began with the mysteries of brain function and numerous psychobiology courses as an undergrad at SIU-Carbondale. The mind-body connection resulted in graduate coursework in behavior therapy and behavioral medicine, including biofeedback and relaxation training--all non-pharmaceutical interventions to help clients change by learning and practicing more adaptive mental, emotional and physical skills. She earned a Master of Science degree in 1985.
Subsequent discoveries of neuroplasticity, and advances in the delivery and practice of neurofeedback, have proven to strengthen treatment gains and empower clients to tap into their inherently healing inner resources.
