This work gave me more confidence and calm, exactly what I needed."

"A week after I had fractured my ankle, I still had a lot of bruising and swelling. Donna used a combination of EEM and OB. Within hours, there was a visibly significant change and my pain was also gone."

"This morning after doing energy work, tapping with some positive affirmations, and just getting myself
centered and grounded, I felt ready, willing, and able to present my introductory talk . . . I was
happily surprised at how I was able to ignore everything I wrote down and just go with the flow!
Thank you, Donna, and this valuable work! I feel like a million dollars!"
—M.T., Virginia, U.S.A.
“The night before my People Symphony Concert in New York at Washington Irving High School, I went to an Italian restaurant with friends. Everything was fine until I woke up at 4AM feeling totally sick; I had been food poisoned!
Of course I cancelled my rehearsal at the hall the next day and decided to go there the latest possible. At that time,
I had no idea if I would be able to find the strength to play the concert but I didn't wanna give up! So, I arrived at Washington Irving High School one hour before the concert. Donna came backstage and saw I was not feeling great
at all and without energy; I was still willing to play but knew it would be a huge effort on my body.
So Donna asked me "can I try something?" and then started to explain to me the idea of energy medicine;
I had never heard about it and I found it fascinating; of course I wanted to try! In my position, I would have tried anything to feel better! She asked me to lie down and then started to work on me. What seemed crazy is
she didn't touch me, she was moving her hands approximately 7 inch above me. Her movements were
circles around my body and specially my belly to unlock my energy and make it flow again. The belly area
is quite vast and she felt exactly where it was painful and stayed there.
After 2-3 minutes focused on that point, I started to feel a flow and something heavy leaving my body.
It's really difficult to explain and put words to it, but that's what I felt. At that moment, Donna turned red a little bit and started to sweat, it was crazy! It really felt like she was taking the pain away of my body.
To finish, she worked on my back, which is always painful, to give me some energy back because I was still feeling enormously weak. And it worked -- after 30 minutes of work, I was a different person!! I could stand up without feeling nauseous and I knew it would now be possible to play the concert -- difficult and challenging, but possible!
I can say, on this specific day, energy medicine and Donna saved my life! An amazing experience for sure!”
--Lise de la Salle, concert pianist
"Donna's grid work has been transformational for me. Ever since then I feel much more fundamental support in my body, and I'm less prone to polarity issues. I'm very grateful. "
