“I have known, worked with, and made referrals to Marinna for 27 years. I have been her clinical supervisor for her work as a psychotherapist for almost four years.
In my opinion, Marinna is an individual of the highest moral caliber, a natural empath, a superb clinician, and a perpetual student devoted to improving her professional and clinical skills for the rest of her life. It has been a pleasure knowing and working with her. I would trust her to treat my family and friends, and can think of no higher praise I can bestow upon a colleague.”
— Dr. Neil Marinello, Solution-focused Life Coach, Retired Psychologist, Woodstock, VT
“I had a freak auto accident one morning. Although relatively unharmed, I awoke the next day crying uncontrollably, my symptoms worsening till they were psychologically paralyzing. Instinctively I remembered the energy work Marinna did, especially her work with people who’ve experienced trauma. And luckily she was able to see me that same day.
During that one appointment she helped to relieve me of all the trauma symptoms by using talk and energy therapy. My PTSD symptoms were completely gone! I have very high regard for Marinna’s ability to listen to her clients and use her formal training in unison with her wonderful intuitive abilities to help people heal. Marinna is a gifted, compassionate, and highly intuitive healer.”
— Melanie Williams, Licensed Psychologist, Upper Valley, VT
“Marinna has done such amazing work with me. She’s been great helping me with the life-controlling anxieties I’ve had for years.
During a recent talk session and the energy /massage therapy that followed it, I experienced a lot of release, as if something negative or dark was leaving me. This was replaced by a yellow bright light. Afterward I felt awesome. Since then I’ve felt less anxiety.”
— Sam B., Child Advocate, Upper Valley, VT
“I so glad you have the knowledge and the skills and the heart to do this work. I think it has helped me grow so much.
I remember when I going through years of unsatisfactory therapy. I dreamed of someone, a therapist, who would have a table for me to lie down on, someone who’d someone who’d provide touch for me and talk therapy as well. I never dreamed I would actually find someone like this, but these are the things you do for me and I am so grateful.”
— Kelly H., Domestic Care, Upper Valley, VT
“Psychotherapy with Marinna has been very helpful. I’ve been able to find different ways to deal with my stress, to calm down in my busy life and take care of myself. The blending of massage and energy therapy with counseling has been wonderful and healing.
When I come here to see Marinna, I feel taken care of both physically and emotionally. Thinking about how she’s able to connect with me reminds me of someone who’s written about “true listening” which involves connecting with the divine in the other person. That’s what I feel about Marinna, that she connects to the divine working in me.”
— J. White, Upper Valley, VT
“Because my first experience with energy work was so remarkable, I feel compelled to share it. I was at friend’s house and about to go to the hospital, having been extremely sick, when Marinna arrived. She found me and offered to do energy work with me. New to such a process, I was desperate enough to say yes.
With her treatment, the weakness and fatigue left my body, my heart and breathing rate returned to normal, and my eyes had become clear. This was a complete turn around. I felt so good that I felt like celebrating. When our friends saw me, they said exclaimed, “You look like yourself again.” and “What an about face you’ve taken!” I highly recommend her to anyone. My only regret is that Marinna doesn’t live in Florida!”
— Simon Binnie, Tequesta, FL
“I was amazed the day after our session and even now. After it, I felt that I was walking upright and walking tall. I felt that I could stand my ground and that my body was being supported by its energy.
This was a high for me. I feel good now and and experience boosted self esteem. This was very much needed.”
— Troy, Upper Valley, VT
“Marinna is a kind and gifted healer whose unique methods and intuitive bodywork leave me feeling peaceful and full of strength. In our session I have been able to address past issues and patterns of behavior that have been an obstacle in my life. Having the option of using energy, massage therapy and psychotherapy in the same session is wonderful.”
— Sharon Jones, Royalton, VT, Mother and Homemaker
“”It is with enthusiasm that I recommend Marinna Elaine for her massage therapy/healing work. She is a very caring, thorough, and talented individual and always very professional in every aspect of her work.”
— Dave Hunt, School Administer (retired), Rochester, VT
“When Marinna massages me, I can feel the energy that flows through her hands an experience the process of healing generated from within my body.
The pleasure and well-being I experience when she works with me is to be cherished and remembered in the interval between sessions. I find relief from tenacious physical problems. This gives me hope which helps me sustain the quality of my life in spite of handicaps and tragic events. I am relieved from the feeling of being trapped in my own body.”
— Frank Lornitzo, Research Scientist, (retired), Bradford, VT
“I’ve come to realize Marinna Elaine is a talented healer as well as Massage therapist. The quality of her touch has been special and important to me.
Maybe what makes me feel better is that her touch seems to put me in touch with the best parts I know of myself. Or maybe it’s the “heating elements”s she seems to have in her care-giving hands. At the very least, I can say that if I arrive for my session in a bad mood, I leave her office feeling better about myself and about the world.”
— Larry Revit, Engineering Consultant, Brownsville, VT
“Marinna Elaine’s intuitively-based energy work is very subtle, loving, and powerful. After two sessions, focusing on what I sensed was a nearly life-long area of energy blockage in my throat, I have noticed an increasing ability to express myself in poetry and prose. And my singing voice has improved as well.”
— Deborah Coffman, Musician, Woodstock, VT
“After having a double session with Marinna, not only do I feel like doing things again, I can actually do them. It is wonderful! Things have really improved for me.”
— Fran Gordon, Public Relations (retired), West Hartford, CT
“When it comes to massage and energy healing, I’ve never responded to anyone like I have to Marinna. With her I go into a deep inner relaxation. It feels like I’m on a cloud. There, I feel a wonderful peacefulness and security. I have the sense of doing something really good for myself.”
— Joannie Tabor, Bethel, VT, Business Owner
“Windows allow sunlight, fresh air, comfort, and a sense of protection in our homes and into our inner worlds. In session with Marinna, I’ve experienced light in my world when I felt dark,and fresh ideas when I felt lost. With her, I can look at problems comfortably and safely. And I’ve been able to pass through a window into my freedom. In my eyes she’s like a window to this beautiful planet earth.”
— Frank Candelier, Bethel, VT, Restaurant Manager
“With Marinna I’ve been able to gain new emotional freedom. Our process helped me to become more independent and more successful at communicating with a certain loved one. Also Marinna showed me how well my body and emotions could respond to a positive and loving attitude on my part. So in spite of everything I’ve faced, I can still experience a glow of contentment.”
— Frank L., Northern VT
“The inner security and peacefulness I have left our sessions with…the strength and confidence I’ve gained in many areas of my life…the encouragement and caring Marinna has shown me…all of these have helped me to become a more accepting person and a more self-assured human!
In my eyes Marinna is genuine and wise and her work had been valuable to me.”
