Community

There is nothing better than the feeling of giving back to the community. Volunteering has become one of my favorite past times; the opportunity to meet new people, and to be able to help them to ease their pain, is not only rewarding but exciting to me.

PAROLE OFFICERS WELLNESS DAY MAY 2018

Another great year at the Parole Officers Wellness day. The opportunity to help de-stress these officers is an honor. I met some new faces and was happy to see the old ones. I provided chair massage therapy. This time I was accompanied by some very special people who took time out of their busy schedules to volunteer as well: Patty Alessi, Reiki Master, www.PattyAlessi.net. Iren Shemelyak, Acupuncturist in Mount Sinai, NY. Harold Flanagan, Esthetician, www.newyorkfaces.net, Smithtown, NY. Ruth Pierre, Massage Therapist, www.middaytherapeutic.com, Deer Park, NY.

PAROLE OFFICERS WELLNESS DAY MARCH 2017

Today, I had the opportunity to meet and do chair massage for parole officers wellness day. These wonderful men and women risk their lives every day to keep us safe. To be able to help relax these over-worked, stressed-out officers is rewarding. Thank you to my friend, Bianca Star-Rochford, for volunteering her Reiki services today. Thank you,  Officer P. Torres, for being one of my clients today and allowing me to post this photo of us.

THE URSULINE SISTERS OF TILDONK FEBRUARY/MARCH 2016

This is my 3rd year volunteering for the sisters, and I have to say it's my favorite event. It's a peaceful experience. Every year these women and their volunteers work so hard to transform their facility into a beautiful spa retreat.  What a great night to be with my fellow massage therapist and reflexologist in support of these beautiful Sisters, and their facility. It's always an overwhelming feeling of peace and healing. They offered massage therapy, reflexology, nutritional counseling, meditation and more. The Ursuline Sisters and Associates of Tildonk are dedicated to radical Gospel living. Energized by the spirit and example of St. Angela they dare to effect change in their lives, Church, and society by standing with the oppressed economically poor, especially women and children. Looking forward to next year. http://tildonkursuline.org/

 

SAINT JOSEPH THE WORKER PARISH PANCAKE BREAKFAST TO SUPPORT THE YOUTH MINISTRY 2015

We had a great time at Saint Joseph the Worker Parish Pancake Breakfast. It was to help support the Youth Ministry.  These teens are proactive; they were wonderful, respectful, caring and willing to help. It's wonderful to see a group of teens be interested in their religion and community. This is the type of positive energy we need in the world. I had great success with the Chair Massage and Gift Certificates, and it was wonderful to see our list of new vendors increase.

WALLEN'S NATURAL MARKET WELLNESS DAY NOVEMBER 2014

I had a great time at Wallen's Natural Market. This adorable market has such a great vibe. The owner's and their employees are kind, knowledgeable, and always welcome you with a smile. When asked to participate in the wellness day, I jumped at the opportunity to work with such great people for the day. I did 10-minute chair massage, and there was Pam Gilbert from Prosper & Flourish, a Reiki Practitioner, also giving 10-minute reiki treatments. It was a peaceful afternoon.

THE BROOKHAVEN MEMORIAL HOSPITAL ANN LEPAGE GOLF AND TENNIS CLASSIC JUNE 2014

A beautiful day to do chair massage on the greens of the Bellport Country Club. In memory of Ann LePage. She was the Vice President of Hospice and a great contributor to the community. I'm a firm believer in hospice. To a person who is dying every second, minute and hour is precious. Hospice allows the patient to have their last days spent with dignity and quality of life. The support they give the families and friends is amazing. I had a wonderful time meeting new people and helping raise money for such a beautiful cause.
