Jeff Currier

Jeff has been listening to the universe nudging him to become what he came into this world to be. Leaving behind the corporate world, Jeff has been living Reiki, Crystals and Shamanic practices for the last 7 years. Jeff brings a practical approach to the healing services he offers to individuals and the community. “My goal is to meet people where they are and to help restore harmony and balance, and to heal fear and trauma, so that each person may become all they were meant to be.” Jeff works with people individually; he also clears and blesses homes, land, and spaces. Stones and crystals are key part of Jeff’s connection to nature, and where he finds rejuvenation for himself and the environment. In hypnotherapy Jeff combines the knowledge and wisdom he has gained to help people address the real root cause of behaviors, events or experiences in a loving, pleasant, lasting way allowing people to reach the goals they desire. “In all my work, all I do is create the space for the work to happen; each person and spirit do all that is necessary for the person’s highest good in that moment.”

Certified as a Hypnotherapist, a Shamanic Reiki Practitioner, and as a Master in Usui and Crystal Reiki, Jeff helps individuals grow and develop becoming all they were meant to be. With degrees as a Chemical Engineer and a Geologist, he shares his love of crystals and minerals with others and brings a unique scientific backed approach to spirituality and healing. Jeff’s uncomplicated explanations help others to understand the science behind energy-based practices, bridging the gap between the two. Trained at a state certified hypnotherapy school and a member of the National Guild of Hypnotherapists, Jeff’s hypnotherapy approach is unique as he assists clients by addressing the root cause of behavior or attitude, thus helping clients quickly achieve their goals. As a Shamanic Healing Practitioner, Jeff follows the practice and principles of The Foundation for Shamanic Healing. Together with his wife Jo, Jeff co-owns Ways To Wellness and Higher Self Bookstore.

Jo is deeply connected to the Angelic realms and to energy, particularly to that of Reiki. As an empath and nurturer, Jo brings her loving and caring nature to all of her work and to those that come to see her. She has been developing and nurturing her healing work over that last seven years, blending with it her knowledge in the areas of health, nutrition, personal empowerment, and spiritual growth. Jo innately knows and understands what a person needs and how to bring about the healing and transformation that they are looking for in that moment. “Helping people live vibrantly, authentically, and joyfully means helping them to be and feel their best. Wellness and balance in every aspect of a person’s life is integral to the work we do together.” Jo weaves together many different forms of energy in her sessions to create a special experience in a loving, caring, gentle way.

Voted the Most Motivational Mentor in the Great Lakes Bay Region in 2013, Jo is passionate about helping others, loves mentoring, and intuitively guides people to be the best they can be.
