Andrea Carli, CRR, CNHP, MSA, ND-S, DD Flexible hours Monday - Thursday

  
I approach each person as an individual and use my wide variety of skills to help each person find a safe effective way to Better Health.

Services I Provide
   
Hand, Foot Reflexology (30 – 60 min, $45 – $70)
Ear Reflexology (10 – 20 min, $22 – $45)
There are reflex areas in the feet, hands, & ears which correspond to all of the glands, organs & parts of the body. Reflexology is a unique method of using the thumb & fingers on these reflex areas. This promotes relaxation, circulation, and improves nerve & blood supply through stimulating the reflex areas.
Light Therapy (5 – 45 min, $25 – $50)
FDA approved for minor aches, pains, local circulation, inflammation, reducing muscle stress, and detoxification of the applied area. Perfect alone or in conjunction with Reflexology and many other therapies.
Aqua Chi (30 – 40 min, $40)
Therapeutic foot bath, helps the body to detoxify through the feet while increasing sense of well being & energy. Helps purge pollutants, toxic chemicals, and other foreign elements that block the body’s elimination system.
Jin Shin Jyutsu (60 min, $60)
Is the method of using both hands, 2 points at a time on the 26 Accupressure points. Jin Shin Jyutsu helps to unlock energy pathways that have become blocked, stagnant or imbalanced. This technique is gentle and allows the client to relax while restoring harmony, calmness, patience and self-containment.

Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
   
While emotions are perfectly normal, they sometimes produce behaviors years later that are counterproductive, diminishing our health.
NET is a technique used to identify and help you let go of “stuck” real or imagined emotional patterns.
If you can visualize a mental picture of an event (loss of a loved one, fear, headache, depression, injury, golf game, being called chubby, etc.) feel it, touch a pain point or say it – you can work on it. Even if it’s imagined as in a dream.
Using Muscle Testing with specific points on the body you can help remove these stressful responses and imbalances that link our present emotional realities (beliefs, phobias, self-sabotaging behaviors and many physical problems) to a past event that’s holding negatively charged emotions (physiological reaction to memories or words). It’s fast. It’s fun. It can dramatically improve your health.
NET is perfect alone or in conjunction with reflexology, physical therapy, massage, or many other therapies and life style improvements.
      "This past fall, I lost my voice after getting sick with a strep virus. I am a soprano singer, and my upper (voice) register was missing. As I began to recover, I would get sick again with another virus. This cycle continued for four months. While I worked with my physician to recover from the viruses, I also worked with Andrea with NET to address the emotional component to losing my voice. I have finally recovered my voice, with the help of Andrea and NET treatment." - Mary R.

      "The NET I did with Andrea helped me to manage the anxiety I experienced when I was teaching a course at the university level this past fall. What is so amazing about NET is that I could be having physical symptoms when I walk into the therapy room, and when we explore and resolved the issues, the physical symptoms significantly decrease or even disappear. Working with Andrea was so helpful. She listens to your concerns, and follows the appropriate protocol that allows healing to occur. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with such a fine practitioner." - Mary

Andrea’s Story
   
After giving birth I was left with multiple urinary problems. Nothing was helping and the Doctor wanted to do surgery. I met a woman that did Therapeutic Reflexology and she said “I could help you”. I saw her once a week. My symptoms started to subside. I had more energy, slept better, and my overall quality of life started to improve. I felt so good I kept asking her questions about Reflexology. She finally told me to go to the school & learn it. So that is exactly what I did and the rest is history. Over the past 25 years I have learned a multitude of different therapies and techniques. My passion for helping people better their health started with becoming a Certified Registered Reflexologist and Certified Natural Health Practitioner. I’m currently a member of National Association of Certified Health Professionals, Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals and Reflexology Association of Illinois. The constant change in the health field has brought me to study Naturopathy and the effects of nutrition, stress and emotions of the body.
