Peter is a Teacher, Author, Influencer, and Healer. Peter’s path as a Healer began, unbeknownst to him, in 1985 when he broke his back while playing hockey. 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. In 2005, he completed his Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences. A life-long learner, he has taken over 100 continuing education courses since graduating PT school in 1995.
In 2008, he was introduced to Reiki and by 2009 became a Reiki master. Peter became impressed with how rapidly Reiki could help patients heal. Over the next few years, he became certified as 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 with Joan Ruggiero, M.Ed. As he continued his energy work training, he completed Advanced CranioSacral Therapy, Level One, with the Upledger Institute. In 2017, he became a Master Instructor in Integrated Energy Therapy (IET). He began Shamanic Studies in 2020 with Sandra Ingerman.
A teacher in both academic and clinical settings, he has been a clinical instructor for undergraduate and graduate students in healthcare for over 20 years. He began teaching energy work to clinical and non-clinical students in 2009. He brings his extensive knowledge of physics, anatomy and physiology to his energy work healing and teaching. He provides healing sessions and teaches energy work classes at the Heaven and Earth Studio in Derry, NH, at Lotus Massage and Spa in Georgetown, MA, Circles of Wisdom in Methuen, MA, at other facilities across New England, and online via Zoom.
As the Healer’s Healer, he has been active in the media advocating the need for energetic self-care especially in these difficult times. His free online Masterclass Series, Self-Care for Healers, reached Healers all over the world, and Season 2 will be released globally on January 24, 2022. He was recently interviewed by best-selling author Lois Hermann on her radio show Inspiring Hope, by Animal Communicator/Healer Anna Marie Ellison, and by Coach Deborah Knight. He was a presenter at the Gut-Immunity-Health Summit in December 2021. Peter is dedicated to helping Healers of all levels of experience achieve true transformation, enabling them to realize and reveal their Authentic Self.
