The inclination to become a healer has been within me for a very long time. However, like some of us, I pushed it to the side for a "real" career. My "aha" moment was during my first Reiki class. As I felt the energy I was receiving, a joy filled my heart and I felt encased in warmth. I felt amazing and happy, and peaceful... and then I went back to the "real world".
The following year I took my 2nd Reiki class and all of the same energy came back to me. More and more through the years I continued to fuel the passion, taking various classes here and there still thinking "I wish", but was afraid to take the leap.
Finally, I was introduced to Integrated Energy Therapy® ... Wow. Where Reiki works with the light energy of the chakras, IET® works with the angels and emotions. What a feeling of empowerment, energy and relief! After a few personal sessions of IET®, I knew this was something I wanted to do!
I was given the opportunity to take the basic level IET® class and my practitioner became my instructor! She knew full well where I belonged, but she also knew I'd know the right time. Later, during a crystal healing session with a different practitioner, I was told: "The doors are open wide. All you have to do is take the first step." I knew it was time. I declared my true desire right then and there!
I have been practicing Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy® since 2006. It is my wish to introduce Reiki and IET® into the lives of my clients, with the intention to empower them with grace and harmony; for the highest and best healing good of my clients and myself as I work with them.
As an educator with a master’s degree in education, Gina sought an outlet to relax and rejuvenate back in 2007 when she stumbled upon Reiki. She trained as a reiki practitioner to share these benefits with others. Learning reiki opened her eyes to the world of complementary care and how hospitals with integrative medicine departments offer massage, reiki, and other modalities to facilitate far more than relaxation. These tools helped people manage anxiety, pain, sleeplessness, and more. Gina became a reiki volunteer in Hartford Hospital’s cancer center in 2007 and had the privilege of working routinely with a brain tumor client who inspired her to learn reflexology.
In 2008 she began training at the Connecticut Center for Universal Reflexology where she completed her certification as a Reflexologist. Since that time she has worked with Ironman athletes as well as those suffering from a myriad of health issues including, anxiety, cancer, chronic headaches, sinus difficulties, ALS, and insomnia. Gina has also cultivated an additional passion for the profound health benefits of essential oils. Whether you choose to integrate all of these tools, or select just one, Gina’s approach offers a unique opportunity to relax, restore, and redirect you.

Andrea Ott is the Lead Therapist for Western Mass Wellness Center.
She is one of the few massage therapists in Massachusetts to offer Ashiatsu Massage - and unique massage modality steeped in ancient holistic tradition, in which the practitioner utilizes clean well maintained feet instead of hands. Thanks to the use of overhead bars, the session can be performed at a traditional massage table. Sounds strange, but it is an incredibly relaxing and effective massage because it provides broad consistent pressure throughout the massage. You have to try it to believe it!

Chair massage is available. Shecan travel to your location, for those who have mobility issues or who are in a hospice setting.
