New Location and Mind/Body Transformation

RaindropI am pleased to announce my new offices in Exeter, NH and Newburyport, MA.  Both locations provide a wonderful space to perform bodywork as well as my growing Mind/Body Transformation practice.  Clients are raving about how effective this transformational energy healing is for them.

Here’s the latest review from a wonderful client in Wisconsin.  We worked over the phone to clear the blocked emotional energy:  “Monica’s kind and loving energy created a safe and nurturing space for our work together. Her techniques are elegant but laser sharp, and I had several significant breakthroughs in our very first session of Mind/Body Transformation together”. Robin R., Wisconsin, Sept. 2015

Together, we can target the origin of emotional blocks that keep you from feeling happy and purposeful.  What type of blocks?  Emotional pain, self-esteem issues, frantic nervous systems, blocked heart walls from past trauma, grief, financial blocks, depression and anxiety.  It is an honor to work with clients to identify the cause of long-standing emotional patterns.

Call me at 603-486-8770 to discuss how Mind/Body Transformation can help you.  We will schedule a free 15 minute Discovery session to see how we can best work together.  Or email me at  I look forward to working with you!  Here’s the link to learn more: Mind/Body Healing


Remarkable Results with CranioSacral Therapy

It has been my privilege to serve the public with holistic health care utilizing CranioSacral Therapy. It is a very powerful therapy for many pain conditions, nervous system dysfunctions, such as TMJ, fibromyalgia, tinnitus, headaches and chronic back and neck pain.  It also calms the nervous system so that anxiety and depression are eased as well.   I share this statement here to encourage people to try this very gentle therapy that seems to work wonders.  My clients  also  include teenagers with ADD and ADHD, eating disorders, anxiety, and Sensory Processing Disorder.  Please refer anyone you know who suffers from these chronic pain conditions to a CranioSacral Therapist in your area.

This statement comes from my FaceBook page.  Thanks Joe!

“Before I was led to Monica at Touch of Your Life and to HopeWell Healing Center, I was “done” with Western Medicine. Nothing gave me relief from the church bells ringing in my ears to the pain and swelling of my legs after “recovering” from a massive blood clot. I couldn’t swallow another pill for the life of me. I have been seeing Monica on a regular basis for about two months, and my life has drastically changed (all for the better). The ringing in my ears has been gone a long time. I am no longer limping and walking in pain. I can think, I can actually focus. Thank you Monica, giving me part of my life back”.   —Joe Menard, Reedsburg, WI

Biomat Reduces Stress

For the past three months I have been trying out the Biomat for reducing pain, stress, enhancing the immune system and overall health.  I am impressed.

I am very reluctant to offer new products to my clients until I feel sure that it is something they will benefit from. I am offering the Biomat because I feel it has sound science behind it and it provides much needed relief on a cellular level.  Everyone that has tried it has found immediate benefits, which are stated below.

If you want to know more or try one out, please call me.  608-432-1966.  More information is coming on my website and I am happy to speak with you directly about how to find out more and/or place an order.  You can try one for 24 hours by calling me and setting up an appointment to try it.  They come in several sizes and we will find the best one for you.

Here is the basic information:

What is a Biomat?BioMat

The answer is a Far Infrared Mat that you purchase and use at home.  It has the following benefits:

Reduces stress hormones including cortisol by 78% while improving the body’s functioning.  It enhances:

  • weight loss
  • better sleep
  • hormonal regulation
  • balances nervous system
  • reduces pain conditions
  • increases detoxification of cells

How does it do this?

At a high temperature, it promotes HSP = Heat Shock Protein (like “runner’s high”) and is released only after 40 minutes at highest heat.Poka-Poka-Belt

What does it do?

Releases endorphins and lymphocytes (T cells, NK cells and B cells) which means its healthy for body and emotional states like depression and anxiety as well as overall pain relief.

Can I sleep on the BioMat?

Yes, at low temperatures it will affect your core body temperature while:
● increasing cellular rejuvenation by 60 times!
● Increasing duration and quality of sleep.
● Stabilizing body temp so that you don’t get too hot/too cold.
● Reducing stress hormones.

How does it work?

It alters your core body temperature, while safely detoxifying your cells:

  • Your head stays cool…you do not heat the grey matter of the brain, and if you do the brain will not regulate hormones and you will not be able to release HSP.
  • Unlike FIR saunas, where breathing warm/hot air is not advisable for many health conditions such as respiratory and cardiovascular issues.
  • Detoxes through 7 channels and not just through the pores with sweat.
  • Increases cellular stabilization and rejuvenation.
  • Generates negative ions allowing the cells to release toxic waste.
    When toxins are present, the cells can’t take up nutrition if they are positively
    charged ions.
  • Negative ions, like being at the ocean, open the door for cells to release toxins and take up good nutrition.
  • With toxins present, cells degenerate or mutate.  With negative ionization they stabilize and then rejuvenate
  • Stabilizes and increases core body temperature.  How?
    1. Does not just warm the skin, it penetrates 6 to8 inches into the body
    2. Core body temperatures become unstable and/or too low and many live in some state of hypothermia…this makes the body host to all types of pathogens
    3. Even if pathogens already exist, thermotherapy with Far Infrared will kill those pathogens while still regenerating healthy cells.

More wonderful health benefits:

Consistent use of the BioMat will not only elevate core body temperature therapeutically in the short term, but it will reestablish a new higher and optimal core body temperature while:

  • improving immunity
  • warding off autoimmune issues
  • detoxifying cells, reducing pathogens

What temperature makes this happen?

  • The Magic Number: 70 degrees celsius or 158 degrees fahrenheit.
    At this temperature, it will reduce production of diseases

Why Amethyst Crystals?
● Besides the metaphysical properties of Amethyst as the most healing and calming of crystals…it has a scientific basis as well.

Is it safe?

It’s safe! There is no danger to the healthy cell.  The good news is that it is FDA approved and ready for use!

Wellness is my passion and I am truly happy to find something that everyone can use.  Kids and animals love it too!

Healing Through Touch

Healing with Divine Light Energy

When someone asks for healing, they come with faith to be healed.  The energy of divine light and love can be harnessed by people who are enlightened and who have dedicated their lives to healing.  This power comes from God and is a mental power to increase the frequency of vibration of the cells and mind-thought.  By faith and meditation, one can call into operation the unlimited power of God for healing the mind and body and for awakening the potential in the soul.

Masters have demonstrated this for centuries.  The healer has developed an ability to direct consciously the energy of love or God power, which sustains all life.  The life force is charged by the healer to enter the patient and is directed through the hands in potent rays of energy.  The body lives in an energy of vibratory power.

When illness develops, there is some force that is depleted, and needs to be recharged, rejuvenated.  The mental power to heal can be developed by anyone wanting to do so, but the inner work of transformation and release of fear must coincide with the work.  An unhealed healer is like an untrained mind.  Its effectiveness is directly proportionate to the power of the will of the healer.  The life force is intelligent but can be diminished by the weak ego-identified mind of the healer.

One who is awake and knows himself can work miracles through the life-force as Jesus and the great masters have demonstrated.  Masters describe this in their writings which are now readily available to anyone wanting to truly know how to heal as this passage shows from Paramahansa Yogananda.

“Spinal adjustments and massage are effective promoters of healing for they release obstructed life force to carry out its function as the sure healer of physical diseases.  Yoga exercises, the postures or asanas of Hatha Yoga, are an excellent means of adjusting the spinal vertebrae to release the pressure on the spinal nerves and bring about the normal flow of life force in the nervous system, promoting healing of many diseases.”

From Paramanhansa Yogandanda, The Second Coming of Christ, vol.1, Discourse 25, pp 417

Is massage health care?

Is massage health care? No, or it’s the best version of health care.

“Yes, it dawned on me as I was on the table last night—just reveling in the feeling of being thoroughly attended to—this experience is not health care. Not even close.

Ever go to a physical therapist? Helpful? Usually. Relaxing, soothing? Nope. Last time I went to my primary care physician—a super woman I love, not just like, LOVE—I waited 55 minutes, and saw her for 6 minutes. What we know as health care in the United States is nothing like what I have experienced the past six weeks with massage.

Massage therapy is intimate; society often associates the word intimacy with sex. That’s not what I mean. But massage is intimate—the PT doesn’t dim the lights or play soothing music. And the chiropractor or MD doesn’t take extra care to engage your body fluidly with permission. These things happen regularly in massage sessions. It’s part of our expectation and part of what makes massage therapeutic, relaxing, soothing, beautiful. And what makes it an investment of intent by the professional—you give a little bit of yourself with every session.”
ABMP President

The chronic relief, the pain subsiding, months of tension melting and finally a reconnect to who you are! My clients often state “that gave me so much relief!” I smile and say, “I am so glad”. What other profession can do this for people? That is why I love being a massage therapist.

How Advocare Changed My Life

I recently started a weight loss and wellness program called Advocare.  I was hesitant and skeptical in the beginning, but because I was looking to lose weight and cleanse my system, I decided to try it.  I always talk about taking personal responsibility for your health, to be proactive, to inform yourself about natural health by making better choices.  I am amazed at how many people are on some kind of drug and have something going on physically or emotionally that baffles them.  Their doctor prescribes something and that’s what they do.  Not knowing anything else, they trust unknowingly in a system that only makes them drug dependent.   There is a need for better information, a systematic way to improve your health without having to become a naturopathic doctor.  I have educated myself in natural health for over 23 years since I came out of depression, so I am very aware of the dilemma people face when health is a challenge.

Enter Advocare.  I started with the 24 Day Challenge which begins with a 10 day herbal cleanse along with simple changes in diet: no wheat, dairy or sugar…this was a big one for me.  I love bread!  With butter or jam of course.  But, when I eliminated it from my diet, I lost that sluggish feeling after a meal that made me want to grab a coffee to wake myself up.  So, after the 10 days, the weight started to come off.  I only want to lose 10 pounds, so I found that within a two weeks or so, I was down 5.  It was easy. I also noticed more muscle and less fat around the waist, arms and legs.  My size 8 jeans felt big and I needed a belt.  Mostly, I had trimmed off the fat and had lots of energy.

The Advocare nutrition system makes it very simple to follow.  I began to feel more at ease emotionally and more purposeful.  I felt that I was on a track of physical and emotional health that I had been missing, because I wasn’t informed on what my deficiencies were.  I didn’t realize that emotional states like depression and anxiety can be caused by a lack of B vitamins, for instance.  So, personally it made sense to me.  I know I am getting better nutrition and am feeling it.  I eat smaller, more frequent meals, and take the meal replacements too when I don’t have time to make something.  In spite of eating more, I have kept off the weight. Muscle is building, inches are disappearing, because I feel more like exercising.  In addition to yoga stretching, which I do daily, I am now getting the cardiovascular work out I was lacking and I feel energy all day.  I know it is obvious, but you don’t realize it until it becomes an experience.

If you are looking to lose weight and stay healthy, this program could work for you.  The before and after pictures tell the stories of transformative experiences people begin to have because of the change in their health. It is inspiring.  Because no matter what your body looks like, its how you feel about yourself that matters.  When you tie your self-esteem to your body, you are doomed.  Emotional health is most important to me, because if I am happy, I can do anything!  I am inspired and passionate about life.

The nutrition system in Advocare is based upon and backed by solid medical research.  These are supplements we need and are probably not getting.  Common sense and simple makes it work. This is a life-changing system and if you want to know more, contact me.  I am now a distributor for Advocare and proud to help others find how easy natural health can be.  Most of all, the power it gives me knowing I am in charge of my health and well-being gives me the desire to help others do the same.
