In 2008, he was introduced to Reiki and by 2009 became a Reiki master. Peter became impressed with how rapidly Reiki could help patients relax. Moreover, as soon as patients could learn to relax, they could rapidly self-improve from a number of musculoskeletal issues, like headaches, TMJ dysfunction, and back pain.
In 2011, he was introduced to the Melchizedek Method, and Peter realized that he needed to learn more about the different modalities in energy work. Over the next several years, he became a master/teacher of Holy Fire/Usui Reiki, Karuna Reiki, Lightarian Reiki, Magnified Healing Levels 1 through 3, and all five levels of the Melchizedek Method. Moreover, he completed Advanced Level One of CranioSacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute. He became a Master Trainer in Integrated Energy Therapy (IET) in 2017.
Peter believes that energy work is becoming a more important part of traditional health care. He brings his extensive knowledge of physics, anatomy and physiology to his energy work healing and teaching. His goal is to help his clients achieve balance through a combination of structural bodywork and energy work. He currently provides home visits to help his patients heal the physical, mental/emotional, and energetic components of their ailments in order to help them heal completely. He teaches Reiki and IET at North Shore Community College in Danvers, MA and at Heaven & Earth Studio in Derry, NH.
Peter’s path as a healer began, unbeknownst to him, in 1985 when he broke his back while playing hockey. He spent the next two years bouncing around from clinician to clinician trying to find the source of the pain and to find the cure. Although he eventually went to surgery, he was impressed with the dedication, skills, and knowledge of his Physical Therapist. Peter then knew that he wanted to become a Physical Therapist so that he could help other people overcome their back pain.
After graduating from Franklin and Marshall College with a Bachelor of Arts in History and Pre-Healing Arts, he earned a Master of Physical Therapy Degree and a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Psychology from the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia in 1995. He earned his Board Certification as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties in 2001 and re-certified in 2011. In 2005, he completed his Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences. A life-long learner, Peter has taken over 100 continuing education courses since graduating PT school in 1995.
