Jason Wood

Center Founder, Energy Medicine Therapist, M. Ed., RMT, CST,Magical Awakening®Level 8

Jason's search for healing began after he took his first psychology coarse in his undergraduate studies. Originally a three year accounting major, he switched his degree due to the profound impact  a psychology coarse had on him. The coarse gave him a language to begin understanding his own anxiety and pain. He then began the long process of healing through psychotherapy.

 In 2007 he enrolled into a Masters program in Counseling. In addition to his graduate studies, he started  studying other alternative avenues in healing, specifically shamanic and energy medicine practices. His first introduction to energy medicine was acupuncture. Acupuncture helped Jason create a peaceful space within, allowing him  to distant himself from the self-destructive behaviors  he was engaged in, and develop insight into why he was unhappy. He then developed  a yoga practice, which strengthen the release of all his "scary" stories and destructive behaviors.

After graduating from his Masters Degree in May of 2010 he began the process of obtaining his LPC which required supervision at a private practice. This was a secure path with great  benefits, but it did not feel authentic. Energy Medicine and Yoga allowed Jason to develop the courage to listen to his "heart", regardless of security, and so he decided to begin his  training in energy medicine. In January of 2011 he developed Pandora Healing leaving the path of psychotherapy. Jason's work is not counseling or psychotherapy but spiritual healing. His practice has evolved into creating a space where individuals can develop insight into there own suffering and begin the process of trusting themselves and their own inner wisdom. Jason achieves this through the spiritual practice of understanding ones story and learning to create a new one. He also uses  energy medicine to help release these stories that are held in the body.

Christina Trefurt

Certified Reiki Master

Christina is a Reiki Practioner trained in the Traditional Usui System, certified up to Master Level . Reiki is an advance mediative, gentle hands on or off technique performed by trained reiki practioners that activates and balances the healing energies within us. It promotes a soothing comfort and assists us to activate our own wellness of mind, body , and spirit. Reiki was recommended to Christina, by a friend who is a reiki master, to help release blocked emotions and to ease anxiety. After her first session, she felt a great glow of energy that she never experienced before, she walked into the session feeling anxious short of breath, and walked out feeling calm and balanced. She thought to herself ‘Wow I would love to make people feel that way’ she continued to receive more sessions, after four sessions, she felt a strong calling to learn and grow with reiki.

 Christina grew in experience and received her first degree of Reiki Attunement Level One on October 12th 2014. She knew from that moment during her first attunement that she wanted to expand her reiki knowledge and experience by focusing her energy to be a Master Reiki Practitioner, which she completed on December 6th of 2015. Master Level Reiki degree allows practitioners to practice reiki at a higher level and also teach others. She owes this all to her Wonderful Traditional Reiki Master, Independent Teacher of Reiki, Katherine George. 

Christina has been discovering, growing, and learning as a healer to enhance her healing skill-sets by learning more healing modalities. She loves to practice Reiki on her clients, family, friends, pets, co-workers, and herself. Christina is so blessed to have Reiki as a apart of her life because Reiki has enhanced her spirit, her well being and life in so many ways, it has been an on-going expansion of consciousness that has led to many opportunities for growth and transformation. She is happy to share the gift of reiki to whomever is open and ready to receive it.

Joan Donohue

Spiritual Medium

Joan believes everyone is born with the ability to connect with  those in Spirit.  Her first communication with a deceased loved one was in the summer of 1977 when she was 16 years old.  At the time she didn’t realize this was a precious gift. She slowly discovered not only could she connect with deceased loved ones, she was also quite intuitive.  Although She didn’t understand what was happening to her she decided to keep most of my experiences to herself.    

Over the next 30 years she learned how to block spiritual contact when it became too much for her and she rarely discussed my sixth sense.  She was, however, able to discretely put her intuitive skills to good use working as an Executive Assistant to high level corporate executives who were grateful for her "gut" feelings!   

While her corporate job was ending in 2008, it was time for a change.  Joan began exploring holistic and spiritual healing modalities as well as the metaphysical world.  She was magically guided to attend a Mediumship workshop with James Van Praagh, that weekend was a life changing experience in many ways and one that finally pushed her to emerge from the "spiritual closest." As she began to embrace and develop her ability to contact those in the Spirit world  - Angels, Guides, & deceased loved ones, Joan was also discovering various forms of energy healing.  Her experiences with both Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy® (I.E.T.) was incredibly healing and inspired her to become a Reiki Master and Master of Integrated Energy Therapy®. 

As her own journey continues to evolve, Joan hope to assist others in their desire to heal and awaken their own spiritual gifts.
