I was always told I needed to be manipulated physically in order to get relief-chiropractor, deep tissue massages, etc. Never have I felt the sense of inner peace and complete balance as I do now. Since my meditation practice with Nancy, I've been sleeping through the night and my constant headaches have subsided. She is patient, kind, skilled and most importantly, she has a gift. I'm so grateful to her.
