Universal Health Principles™
"UHP is difficult to describe but elemental to experience. Usually cathartic, always clarifying, my sessions with Kerri have had an almost magical effect -- one of unifying mind, body, and spirit; developing trust in intuition; and imagining and actualizing a free, un-fearful expression of self. Kerri acts as both guide and witness, creating safe space for catharsis and growth. This practice is a wonder." – Michaela Morton, Actor/Real Estate Agent
"Working with Kerri was a moving and powerful experience. I didn’t know what to expect, and Kerri put me at ease right away. I trusted her completely with the experience. I was surprisingly moved during the session, with Kerri tapping into parts of my life and way of moving through the world were so accurate, and brought those into crystalized form for me to address.
I am more peaceful now. I also see a way to move forward with new ideas and insights into how my future can be different. I don’t need to be stuck in my old patterns, and Kerri helped me see this." - Maria Fadiman, Professor and TEDx Speaker
What is it?
Universal Health Principles™ is a healing modality unlike any other because the healer is actually YOU.
Let me explain.
Universal Health Principles™sessions are based on the #1 principle of health, a universal law that applies to us all, which is: The Body Can Heal Itself.
How is that possible?
Well, here's an example. What happens when you cut your finger?
First, it might bleed, or hurt, but eventually, the blood clots and...
It begins to heal.
Within a few days, or a week, you have brand new skin that has perfectly covered up the injury, integrating seamlessly with the rest of you.
How did that happen? Did you make it happen? Did you tell your white blood cells to scan the area to take care of any possible infection? Did you give a signal to yourself to start making new skin cells and send them to your finger?
No, of course not.
It just gets taken care of.
This is how your body's innate healing system works. It knows everything that needs to happen in order to heal.
So why doesn't this work for your headaches? Your chronic pain? Your insomnia? Digestive issues? Low energy?
Well, healing a small cut on a finger is fairly simple in the scheme of things, but many of our symptoms are more complex. They involve emotional or psychological trauma, or are happening under times of intense stress, like losing a loved one, getting divorced, switching jobs or careers, or even a big (happy!) life event like getting married or going to college.
In addition, being in the "fight or flight" state of worry and anxiety more often than absolutely necessary (as most of us are) also compromises the body's innate healing system.
So what's the solution?
1. Bringing you into a parasympathetic (resting, relaxed) state where the body can heal itself.
2. Asking the body where communication is ready to improve. This might mean processing stuck emotions from past events, changing the images or beliefs we have about the body and ourselves, or hearing what a specific body part wants to say to us.
By relaxing and bringing parts of ourselves to awareness that we have previously been unable or unwilling to look at, we can create the optimal state of being for our body to do the work of healing itself.
How does it work?
Your first session is a bit longer (75 minutes) so we have time to get to know each other and really drop into the experience. Sessions take place either in person at my Lower East Side or Crown Heights office, or remotely using online video.
Remote sessions are just as powerful as in-person sessions, so don't worry about effectiveness when choosing what's best for you.
During a session, you'll lie down and relax. I will "tune into" your body and ask where communication is ready to improve. We do this because communication is the basis of health. If everything inside of you is communicating clearly, then your symptoms can improve from the inside-out. What I'm finding are places in you (physically, emotionally, etc.) where stress has caused communication to break down. By bringing these places into awareness, processing what needs to be processed, and bringing in new, healthy images for the way your body is communicating, we create a state of being where your body can heal itself.
I will pull on your wrist to receive the biofeedback that guides the session. If we are working remotely, I will use my wrist instead of yours (again, it's just as effective!)
Once the body has communicated everything that is ready to improve, then we will "tap out" the links. I will tap over your head and heart while guiding you through breathing, connecting within and allowing your body to heal itself.
Sessions are relaxing, gentle and safe. Nothing comes up in a session that your body is not ready to process, so you don't have to worry about being overwhelmed or nervous. Every session is completely unique and unfolds based on what YOU are ready for.
What does it cost?
The first session is longer for your comfort and to have time to set the stage for a deeper connection. It lasts 90 minutes in person (follow ups are 60-minutes in person.) (Online is 75 minutes and 50 minute follow ups).
If we haven't spoken previously, or you'd like to connect before booking your first session, I have several online intro sessions available each week. You can learn more/book those here.
After your first session, I will give you a range of options for continuing based on what you've told me.
Though you will experience shifts and insights in just one session, I recommend continuing sessions in a group or 1-on-1 capacity for at least three months. This allows more permanent shifts to take place and for your body to trust that you are there for it, knowing that there are more sessions ahead.
