Sarah Marie Palazzolo, LMT, LAc, MS-TCM
Sarah has a masters degree in Chinese medicine, a certification in Chinese herbs and a license in Acupuncture and Massage therapy. She has been working in busy clinics since 2000, providing pain relief through the use of massage, trigger point stretching, acupuncture, Thai massage, cupping, guasha, and herbalism. Sarah is dedicated to getting results for even the most recalcitrant of symptoms. She has mostly focused on pain, but also had results in treating endocrine disorders, reproductive, infertility, allergy sinus, skin problems, eye problems, and other ailments.
She fell in love with Chinese medicine after reading "The web that has no weaver" by Ted Kaptchuck, which describes the eastern worldview of the body as a microcosm of nature, and as a cosmos of our own.
Samantha Trosky, Reiki Master and Chios Energy Master
Sam started her spiritual journey while volunteering at the Theosophical Society as a teenager, and was blessed to see the Dalai Lama speak at the Parliament of World Religions. She was caregiver for her mother and grandmother, volunteer for Mothers on a Mission, and has a deep desire to help others.
Sam’s son, Andrew, was her biggest inspiration for becoming an energy healer. Andrew has high-functioning Autism, ADHD, mood disorders, behaviorial disorders, and a rare seizure disorder that can cause memory loss for hours or even days. Sam met healers from the Chios Energy Healing School in Chicago while looking for alternative treatment options, and after Andrew’s first Chios session he was drastically calmer and more well-behaved. It was this positive change in her son’s health that inspired Sam to learn Chios Energy Healing so that she could help more children like her son, and soon after added Reiki to her healing skills.
