FROM WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN PHYSICALLY HEALED:

A musician: 

"I remember that moment, when I finally utterly let go, and didn't worry about the steps, and let my body release to the rhythm & drum in my own way. It was a new awareness, like an ecstasy, a higher place. I think being in that private, dark crypt gave it an extra air of mysticism and power, too. I felt a strong spiritual bonding across the ages, connecting with women's energy. With the rhythm, the power of the steps, the releasing -- well, the cysts disappeared quite soon after."

 

Prof Dolores Deluise:

"I found you, Alessandra, to be a spectacular teacher. You are patient kind and giving and a NOT accepting efforts that are not a person's best.  At the same time I found you  compassionate inspiring and supportive. The pain in my hands (arthritis) was completely gone by the third day (after the first tambourine class) I am pain free  and I am eternally grateful to you."
