Julie Kusiak is a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) and an experienced Master Level Reiki Practitioner. Julie has facilitated Reiki Therapy sessions in the hospital and home setting for almost 20 years. As a yoga therapist, she has designed individual yoga programs for hundreds of people; and taught therapeutic yoga classes for 10 years for Mount Carmel and Cancer Support Community.
I was scheduled for back surgery and was desperate to find alternative pain management. I had never experienced yoga or Reiki before. I have been seeing Julie for 3 months now and the difference in my pain, stress, and lifestyle is remarkable. She takes the time to connect with her clients and is very thorough with treatment procedures and recommendations. I am practically pain free and able to move better than I have in years. I am sleeping better, feeling better, and am able to accept life stressors easier. Julie's honesty and compassion for others helps promote acceptance and healing. She is well versed in all areas of yoga and Reiki and is a phenomenal instructor. I have recommended her to my physical therapist and numerous friends.
As a person, who previously had some negative yoga experiences, and had never experienced Reiki, I was initially very skeptical. However, Julie is very talented and knowledgeable about yoga and Reiki and the positive effects that can be obtained. I have personally seen a big reduction in my stress level, including the ability to control my responses in stressful situations. I have also experienced a reduction in my blood pressure, and in general, feel more in control of my health. I recommended Julie to a friend, who also had very positive outcomes with pain and stress reduction. I highly recommend Julie.
Reiki and Yoga therapy have done more for me in such a short period of time than years of counseling for anxiety and depression. Energy is all around us. Energy work has allowed me to start to heal on the inside and then create the space to let the energy flow out. Julie's understanding, acceptance and intuition before, during and after a session always leaves me feeling so much better and more clear. So much so that I am now pursing learning more about Reiki so that I might one day help others like Julie has helped me.
Julie was great to work with. She took the time to evaluate where I was at and we worked into exercises over three yoga therapy sessions that brought increasing stability to help with the pain I was experiencing. I was surprised by how quickly I started to see results.
Excellent!!! I have chronic back and shoulder pain. I typically manage it through deep tissue massages once a month but this was no longer working. When I started treatment with Julie I was at an 8 out of 10 pain level with nauseating pain every two to three days. I went through 4 sessions with Julie and it has made a huge difference. I still have some pain but this is most likely occurring because I only do the yoga session 1-2 times per week on my own. 3-4 times per week would probably result in no pain. It has been two months since my last session and I am typically at a 0 to 1 pain level and have not peaked past a 4. The session not only helped with managing the immediate pain but it also helped me keep the pain reduced by giving me tools to use, including relaxation techniques that can be used at work or while driving, I would highly recommend Julie's customized services for pain, flexibility, and general well-being.
I started Reiki Therapy treatment after my back surgery with the goal of pain management and surgical recovery. Julie also suggested some VERY simple yoga-based stretches that augmented my PT. These, combined with my Reiki treatments, really improved my mental and physical health. It’s been a long time since I felt so good. Thank you!!!
I cannot say Thank You enough!! Julie has shown me how reiki and yoga can holistically support me on my healing and living journey! I truly appreciate Julie's depth of knowledge, her professionalism and ability to authentically connect with her clients! I would not be the person I am today without working with her through reiki and yoga therapies. For my birthday, I asked my family to do a yoga nidra class with her and even my teenage son was interested in learning more! THANK YOU JULIE!
