with Tammy Minton Gitter
1 hour appointments available on:
Tuesdays 12:00 - 6:00 pm
Tammy Minton Gitter is a certified Reiki 3 practitioner and is devoted to sharing this life-affirming, life-supporting, and life-sustaining practice with others.
Developed in Japan by Master Usui, Reiki has been passed from teacher to student since its inception. One must be attuned to Reiki to use it and everyone is capable of being attuned. Tammy was initiated and attuned in India and received further attunements by her teacher here in the U.S. She has been practicing Reiki since 2013.
Reiki literally means "Universal Energy" and is the practice of using life force energy to remove dis-ease and generate homeostasis; balance in the various systems of the body and subtle anatomy, including the mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. The practitioner uses her hands to channel Reiki into these bodies, generating a deep state of rest and relaxation that encourages and supports healing on all levels. This includes, but is not limited to, alleviating and healing anxiety, addiction, stress, post-traumatic stress, depression, insomnia, transformation, transformational crises, spiritual afflictions, past lives, and other ailments afflicting our society and the world today. Reiki cannot harm and helps those who are ready to heal themselves and create positive change in their lives by energetically supporting their process.
Receiving energetic healing and Reiki became instrumental in Tammy's life as a sensitive, psychic, channel, and medium who was overwhelmed by her abilities early on. It has and continues to be an integral part of her personal practice and is used as support daily, from the mundane to the transpersonal: physical ailments and illness, significant life events, transformation, and spiritual awakening. Her abilities inform her transmission of Reiki and she will share appropriate information and insights she receives during your session.

WITH DANIELLE GOLDFARB
Rate: $110 per 90 minute private session
Always curious about different modalities to heal, Danielle stumbled into a kundalini class and heard, and intensely felt, the effects of a gong. The sounds had her enraptured and the vibrations changed the landscape of her thoughts and eventually her life. Attending sound baths for several months, Danielle realized her own desire to serve others and heal further, becoming a certified sound practitioner. She plays around West Los Angeles and enjoys helping people heal.
The benefits of vibrational sound are immense. As gongs work to clear energy, emotional blocks are removed, freeing up space to create more of what you desire, and simply put, to feel better. Danielle's excited to share the awesome healing powers of sound with you.
Lay back as we enter an acoustic sound healing journey to relax the body, clear the subconscious, calm the mind, and activate your body's natural healing systems. Planetary tuned gongs, crystal singing bowls, Tibetan bowls and other instruments are used to create a sound healing experience that vibrates and activates every cell in your body, clearing and retuning your energy, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Some benefits of sound healing:
Activates Higher States of Consciousness
Unlocks Blocked Emotions
Relieves Anxiety and Stress
Induces Complete Relaxation
Promotes Deep Meditation
Improves Ability to Concentrate
Normalizes Blood Pressure
Looking forward to providing you with the immense healing powers of sound and vibration.
