Evidence-Based Energy Healing
“barefoot and high tech…”
William’s lifelong studies in music, movement, and energy healing provide a rich context for his creative and healing works. He is convinced that the medicine of the future is here now. It is based on mathematical wave forms, sound, and light as the primary means to re-establish coherent patterns in the human energy field. William
continues to research and dialogue with a rich network of practitioners and leading researchers in physics and energy medicine and develop protocols which restore balance and enhance life energy.
William has trained in electrophonic imaging with Dr. Korotkov of St. Petersburg Technical Institute, and uses an electrophotonics imaging camera to assess stress patterns in his clients, and track their return to optimal health. William's therapy sessions feature solid state physics tools which deliver a non-needle form of treatment at acupuncture sites. These tools and protocols are a breakthrough technology which encodes information in a format that is “readable” through the main energy centers in the body. Solid State Technology operates in the primary realm from which the electromagnetic spectrum emanates. Various mathematically derived patterns become sets of instructions that allow biology to restore itself to optimal functioning.
Nature is the first teacher….
William's studies in classical QiGong include a 200 hour teaching certification with Roger Jahnke (founder of the IIQTC) and a five year certification with Master Zhonxian Wu. Qigong is easier to learn than Taichi and provides the same health benefits of slow, conscious movement combined with active internal imagery inspired by nature. In China’s highly refined 4000 year old healthcare system, QiGong was the patient’s “homework”. William is also a certified BodyTalk practitioner and holds a BA in music from Dartmouth College and has recorded four albums of original songs. He lives with his wife Isa and son Ishvara in a passive solar log home which they built in beautiful

Thai Massage Therapist and Yoga instructor
Michele received her yoga certification from her long time mentor Anna Pittman, with whom she continues to study. She has been teaching yoga for eight years, and established her own yoga studio in Scottsville several years ago. Her style incorporates dynamic flow with a focus on alignment-based principles to fine-tune the postures. She finds the body to be the best guide, and believes that asana practice is about creating space in the body for breath, and space in the mind for joy. Michele offers classes and individual yoga lessons for all levels of experience and is able to accomodate those with health problems that make typical yoga stretches difficult.
Michele has also trained and practiced Thai Massage over the last 8 years. This healing art form has been handed down from master to student for more than 2,000 years. This integrated modality includes acupressure, energy meridian work, breath cultivation and yoga related stretches. Physically this bodywork improves circulation, flexibility, and joint mobilization. On an energetic level, Thai massage works with sen lines to promote the natural healing process on a subtle, yet deep level. The session is both stimulating and relaxing to create a perfect balance for the body.
See her website bluepadma.com for additional resources offered at her studio that is located just 1/2 mile from Revolution Health Center.
Tracey is a graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing in Miami, FL, the only four-year energy healing degree program in the United States. Her previous interdisciplinary degree in Psychology, Sociology and Philosophy and previous social work experience provided an exceptional foundation for becoming a certified healer. Fortunately for our community and our patients, Tracey has chosen to put her healing hands to work in Albemarle County in the studio that she and her husband have created.
In a nutshell, energy work helps to eliminate old patterns of experiencing oneself and the world by clearing blocks in an individual's energy field. It is a co-creative process in which the healer and the client journey together on a path toward wholeness. However, it is the client who directs the pace of the healings and the integration of changes into his or her life.
