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. He earned his Board Certification as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties in 2001 and recertified in 2011. In 2005, he completed his Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree from the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences.
In 2008, he was introduced to Reiki and by 2009 became a Reiki master. Over the next several years, he became a master/teacher of Holy Fire/Usui Reik and Holy Fire Karuna Reiki, taking these classes with William Lee Rand. In addition, he is a master/teacher of 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 Instructor in Integrated Energy Therapy (IET) in 2017.
Peter believes that energy work is becoming a more important part of traditional health care. With over 20 years of academic and clinical teaching experience, 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 energy work classes at the following locations: North Shore Community College in Danvers, MA; Heaven and Earth Studio in Derry, NH; Lotus Massage and Spa in Georgetown, MA; and other locations in New England.
