I have known Lorraine since 2005. I was referred by a mutual friend because I was seeking alternatives to antibiotics every time I got a sinus infection…which was turning out to be TOO often! I was and Air Force crew member flying all over the world at the time, and I had been doing that for over 20 years already. Flying through multiple time zones every month, along with totally disrupted sleep patterns was taking it’s toll. My stress level was also through the roof. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Lorraine has expert diagnostic abilities, and spent the time to check my vitals and aask me how I was doing. Does your doctor listen to you? Mine weren’t, and Keller Army Hospital West Point was my medical facility…world class treatment for Cadets, but not the Active Duty guys working real jobs every day.
Through her herbal prescriptions and expert advice on proper diet, exercise, and sleep counseling, I was able to get my health back on track. Her herbal remedies and supplements were of the highest quality, and at a reasonable price. The best part was that she could tell me everything about what was in the remedy, the science and history behind it, and how it was going to help me. Try that at your local health food store!
Lorraine and her husband Clay also sparked my interest in growing my own whole foods. They are prolific organic gardeners with a fantastic array of herbs and vegetables. She is a wealth of knowledge in this area, and helped me realize there are certain vegetables you should eat at certain times of the year…I had no idea!
Bottom line, Lorraine has become a dear and trusted friend, who has increased her skill sets by also becoming certified in Reiki and Foot Reflexology. I highly recommend you make an appointment to get your health back on track. You won’t be disappointed….and while you are there, ask to see the garden!
I am soon to be 65 years old and had suffered from insomnia for years. I tried every natural remedy on the market but nothing helped very much and I found myself groggy a lot from the meds- natural or otherwise. I also had pretty severe fissures in my rectum that resulted in bloody stools and hemorrhoids…..I really didn’t have much hope in helping myself but I had met Lorraine at a Qigong workshop and thought I would give her a try. She “read” my tongue and gave me herbs which I have been taking pretty faithfully. She also recommended that I make dietary changes. We emailed back and forth because I had many questions- she always answered my questions quickly. I felt that she became, truly, my health partner.
This was several months ago and I am so happy to report that I have thrown out all my sleeping medications and the issue with the fissures has apparently been resolved. Even if just the sleep was restored I would have been happy…but now I am finding that I have much more energy as well.
As you can imagine, I am so happy to have met Lorraine and recommend her highly .
Lorraine has been an invaluable resource in helping me to adopt healthier eating habits, strengthen my digestive tract, and increase my energy levels. She is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, and motivating! Thanks for all your hard work, Lorraine!
Thank you for your wisdom, your dedication to helping people LIVE and realize a healthier life! Wishes of success, manifestation of such pure intentions.

“We both enjoyed your sessions. I truly believe that Joe was not hospitalized this year after his severe sinus infection because of the breathing tecniques used in Qi Gong. This was his 3rd infection in the past 6 years , and the only time he did not need hospitalization. Thank you very, very much for your help.”

“I found Lorraine’s reflexology sessions to be very beneficial. The treatments were gentle, yet very relaxing and refreshing, and Lorraine’s focus and obvious passion for her work was present at every moment during the sessions. She is an honest and straight-forward, good-natured and good-hearted person and skilled practitioner and student of the healing arts and I would highly recommend Lorraine to those who seek to better themselves.”
A few years ago I was diagnosed with microscopic colitis for which there is no known cause or cure. It was infringing on my quality of life which had always been good and I was searching for answers. A friend recommended Lorraine and I have been seeing her for a couple of years. She knows her stuff! In a non-judgemental way she uses her expertise to mend nutritional choices specific to ones particular issue..Recently I went off ALL medications and am taking some of her recommended supplements. I feel great…I will bet Lorraine can help you too!
Lorraine is truly a treasure of the Hudson Valley – a gifted healer, wise and deeply cares for her clients. Her skilled and intuitive hands have soothed my feet and many others! Her lotions and potions keep the body healthy and her sage advice on food and supplements will keep us vibrant for many years! Thank you for sharing your gifts with us, Lorraine!
5 years ago, after 3 rounds of cortisone shots, I had nerves on the bottom of my left foot cauterized due to plantar fasciitis. 2 years later, in the same area, the problem appeared again. once again, I went through a series of 3 cortisone shots and then repeated the cauterizing. this gave me only 1 year of relief before symptoms began again. for the third time I turned to my podiatrist and western medicine, my doctor now suggested all the nerves on the bottom of my left foot be cut. nope…not for me. my friend asked me if I would like to attend a reflexology class. this could be cool, I thought and this is where I met Lorraine. she was the instructor. instantly I knew this was something that could help me. i was interested in learning about the technique but just as eager to have it performed on me for relief. at the end of class I asked Lorraine if she saw clients privately. she handed me her card and the rest is history. not only did reflexology rid me of my plantar fasciitis pain, Lorraine has become instrumental in guiding me to inner wellness. her advanced knowledge, insight and passion for using nutrition and herbs instead of chemicals to rid our bodies of toxins has been a God send to me. my blood pressure meds have been cut in half, as well as my sleeping aid of ambien. the discomforts i was feeling from menopause are now manageable. January of 2015, my husband was diagnosed with throat cancer. immediately I called Lorraine and she guided me through a regimen of nutrition and herbal supplements to keep his immune system strong and his blood counts high. now that his radiation and chemotherapy treatments are finished, Lorraine has him on a herbal routine along with reflexology to rebuild and rejuvenate his cells and immune system. his doctors are amazed by how well he is doing and have asked what we did to get him through so well. I told them I have been working closely with my friend and muse Lorraine. she is a registered certified herbalist and reflexologist. be open to her abilities. there are no promises of magical cures. however, for my husband and myself, our lives have become more enriched from following her simple guidance.
“I have been Lorraine’s client for 2 years, and I am so thankful for the time I had with her! From my first to my last appointment, Lorraine was extensive and thorough, asking specific questions about my day to day rituals, emotional states, and most importantly, what was on my plate. Like most people, I was shocked to find how much I didn’t understand about my bodily needs and why I was feeling the way I did. Before I met Lorraine, it was obvious something was wrong. My digestion was dangerously slow for years, and I constantly felt ‘clogged’. I was bloated, overweight, and miserable. A clean-burning digestion is the foundation for good health, so you can imagine the other issues that came along as a result.Now I had been researching for years prior to Lorraine. I have done parasite cleanses, eaten all organic, gluten free, etc. I even played two collegiate sports.. And I still experienced heaviness and lethargy in my body! Needless to say, I was frustrated.From many health perspectives, I was a healthy being. However, Lorraine was the first to teach me about the body from an energy-based perspective (rebalancing). She teaches you how to be your own doctor with, basically, your fork. She confidently depicts the root of your health issues and teaches you what you can do to fix it. Her protocol is doable, but like all things, requires personal responsibility and taking ownership for your own health outside of the appointments.
For one year, I regret not listening to her completely. I struggled understanding ‘why this’, especially among the health bloggers I follow who do different things and seem to get great results. But, there comes a time where trusting in your teachers and in yourself is necessary. Lorraine taught me how to remain open as well as being grounded in doing what is best for YOU! That being said, I am very fortunate to have been Lorraine’s client, she changed my perspective, which changed my life for the better. ” ~ Elizabeth Westwood
