Reiki Master Megin Flanagan has had a life-long connection to the practice of reiki, growing up in a family with a strong lineage of energy workers. Reiki refers to the universal energy that is inside all of us. Megin recalls, “I fell in love with practicing reiki because it is so universal; I like the idea that through reiki I empower and foster within myself positive points of view and holistic well-being”. She notes that the powerful benefits of reiki can be vast. “Some things in our lives stick with us, bother us, and our connection to this universal energy gets ignored.” The gentle art of reiki can help to release these energetic blocks and restore balance. “I believe, because of what I’ve learned, that we all have the ability to achieve holistic wellness”. As a Reiki Master Practitioner, Megin assists individuals in reaching this goal.

Andrea Ott is the Lead Therapist for Western Mass Wellness Center.
She is one of the few massage therapists in Massachusetts to offer Ashiatsu Massage - and unique massage modality steeped in ancient holistic tradition, in which the practitioner utilizes clean well maintained feet instead of hands. Thanks to the use of overhead bars, the session can be performed at a traditional massage table. Sounds strange, but it is an incredibly relaxing and effective massage because it provides broad consistent pressure throughout the massage. You have to try it to believe it!
Andrea also offers traditional Swedish, Deep Tissue, Heated Himalayan Salt Stone Massage, Traditional Basalt Hot Stone Massage, Prenatal Massage and Massage with Essential Oil Aromatherapy. Chair massage is available. Shecan travel to your location, for those who have mobility issues or who are in a hospice setting.

Originally a skeptic of this work herself, Jess spent her early years, and into college, studying both instrumental and vocal music. After having what Jess terms as her “Quarter Life Crisis” in 2002, she was introduced to psychics, mediums, and spiritual and energy healing, and as she jokingly says now, “I’m never going back!” Jess has been reading Tarot cards since April, 2004. She developed and defined her gifts through the careful guidance of Keri-Ann Aubin of Easthampton, MA. Jess' reading style is unique, in that she does not use the traditional Celtic cross spread in her readings. Instead she uses a spread which was taught to her by a friend and then adapted.
