“Rachel’s work with me boosted my ability to be the leader I want to be. Her deceptively simple techniques are some of the most powerful I have experienced, ever! If you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with her, you will not be disappointed.” R. Cohen

“I was stuck. I had things I wanted to accomplish, but ever since losing my job of 14 years a few years ago, I seemed to be unable to get out of my own way. I had started a business, but found myself unable to devote the energy to it necessary for it to flourish. I had a hobby that I enjoyed greatly and that provided an artistic outlet, and had a good deal of success there, probably because I found that to be more enjoyable than the work of building a business. But even there I found myself unable to take the next steps to bring the hobby to a place where it might be able to provide a living for me and my family. And so I languished for almost five years.

It was about that time that I ran into Rachel. She happened to be starting a new venture of her own with a focus on consulting and energy work. I am a big believer in the scientific process, and have in the past worked in scientific fields myself. When Rachel told me about what she was doing, I could clearly see that she had great enthusiasm for her work, but I was skeptical. Where was the evidence that energy manipulation and healing could actually work (or that anything real was even being done)? Were there double blind studies, etc.? Still, Rachel is an extremely smart and caring person, so I put my skepticism aside and met with her for a few sessions of energy work.

In the short time that Rachel worked with me, I can certainly say that something shifted. I felt more alive and vibrant after working with Rachel, and began to pursue my goals more actively. The knot of dread that often sat in my chest lifted and even began to disappear completely. I suddenly found ideas that elevated my interest and excitement in achieving my goals. Even better, I found the energy and enthusiasm to break out of my shell and begin reaching out to people to find ways to make things happen for the first time in years. Strangely, people were even approaching me for business without my contacting them first. I immediately began having more success (mildly more, but more nonetheless) and had my biggest sales period ever soon after working with Rachel.

I also began to see more ways to move my business forward and (coincidentally?) happened upon the right people and companies to begin to take things in a new direction. The future looks bright once again, and I no longer feel as though my hobby, my business, and my life are stuck in molasses. I have direction, purpose, and drive. Even better, for those times when I feel the energy waning, Rachel has given me the tools and the knowledge to be able to pull myself out of a downward spiral and get back on track achieving what I want to accomplish.

I’m still skeptical. I always will be as it’s just part of my nature. Perhaps it wasn’t really the energy work that did the trick, and maybe it was just Rachel’s vibrant and giving nature that helped me. Most likely I’ll never really know the answer to that, but what I do know is that Rachel provided a great boost for me at a critical time in my life, and for that I am eternally grateful. Thank you Rachel, and I wish you the greatest success in your new venture. If you can help more people in the way that you helped me, it will indeed be worthwhile.”

I did tapping with my daughter (5) yesterday to reduce her anxiety over the possibility of having a boy swim instructor. It worked! Unlike Monday and Wednesday of this week, she ate dinner before hand (the other days she was crying too much to eat) and she actually made it to class without freaking out. She’s now a tapping advocate. She was asking me to do it with her again and again all afternoon yesterday. So cute.  You should pair up with schools – elementary and middle especially to offer some sort of workshop. The stress and anxiety in students is awful and they need ways of coping!

Daily Energy Routine Workshop

Energy Medicine

“When I first saw Rachel in March 2016 I was mentally, emotionally and physically drained.  My exhausting lifestyle had caught up with me after running “on empty” for so long.  Full of empathy & care, Rachel assessed my needs, tracked my energy and did calming techniques to begin balancing and restoring my body’s natural energies.  That was the start of my healing journey with Rachel. Over the next six months, I met with Rachel once or twice a month.  She taught me simple exercises to keep my energies flowing, and ways to stay grounded, centered and calm.  With each session I felt a tangible difference- mentally, emotionally and physically.  We also went through the process of tapping on some deeply rooted emotional issues that I had been carrying for years, and I was able to release them.  I felt like a weight had been lifted!  Over the past months my vitality has been restored and I can handle the stresses of life in a more calm, clear-headed way.  I highly recommend Rachel and the work that she does!”
– M.W., Designer, Cape Cod

“Thank you so much for yesterday’s treatment. Last night was the first night in a VERY long time, I didn’t need sleep aids. My anxiety level was almost non-existent which carried over to today. You certainly have an extraordinary gift!”
– N.C., Mother and Grandmother, Milford

“I had recently returned from living abroad for a year- I had two children who were going back to school after missing a year and I was starting a new job after 10 years in the same position. I was stressed and distracted. My work with Rachel really helped me feel more grounded and more able to deal with the stressors. Rachel was so in tune and focused. She was able to hone in on the most important issues and really made a difference. It was very powerful. She is a true healer.”
– J.H., Nurse Practitioner, Hanover, NH

“After being in a bicycle accident where I was hit by an SUV, I was severely bruised both physically and emotionally. I sought help from Rachel, never having experienced energy medicine before, and not having any expectations of the outcome. I was amazed at how much better I felt after just one session. Not only was my mobility greatly improved, my mental focus had returned. Rachel employed a variety of techniques for dealing with my unique situation, and regularly checked in with me during the treatment. I returned to Rachel for a second session to continue the healing she had administered, and I believe she accelerated my recovery from this trauma.”
– I.M., Training Manager, Cambridge, MA

“Rachel brings the same intensity, curiosity and professionalism to her energy medicine work that she does to her work within the fast-paced corporate world. She is gifted in her ability to tune into the different and often subtle levels of what makes you “you” and as you relax into a treatment with her you can feel the deep focus and caring that Rachel brings to the session. She usually wraps up the energy medicine session with sharing and reflecting upon what she noticed and teaching you simple techniques that help to dissipate blocks and encourage your life force/energy to balance and flow as it is meant to. Also, the session feels so good – deeply restorative and nourishing as if you are waking from a deep sleep.”
– C.C., Nurse Practitioner, Arlington, MA

“Initially, I approached my first energy healing session with just a simple curiosity. I didn’t think I needed to get anything out of it, or bring anything to it. I just thought it would be fun. What I got out of my first session with Rachel was a better understanding of how my energy works for and against me, and a few simple tools I could use immediately to start being more effective as a wife, mother, friend, and professional. I’ve already done plenty of psychotherapy; what I need now in my life are simple tools that I can use to maintain balance and focus, compassion and gratitude.”

Coaching

“Amy is a pleasure to work with because of her professionalism and warm personality. She coaches me into looking at situations from alternate perspectives and using different techniques to help me work toward achieving my short-term and long-term goals. She is the objective voice that I need right now and I have great confidence in her ability to help me find potential paths forward!”
– Senior Software Engineer and Technical Lead

“Amy is both approachable and relatable, while maintaining her professionalism. She listens well and allows you to guide your progress, while holding you accountable. She calls you out when necessary, but always does so in a respectful and kind manner. You feel like you’re speaking to a friend rather than a coach. She’s not afraid to laugh with you, while helping you get in tune with what’s most important to you and who you are at the core. You feel like you’re constantly growing, making realizations you wouldn’t have made on your own, and making progress. Amy seems to truly care about you as a person.”
– Law Enforcement Professional

“Are you struggling with finding purpose in your life or need help making life decisions? Amy Gay has shown me new perspectives and has helped me grow as an individual. I have been working with her for the last 6 months and have seen amazing results. Amy has coached me through some hardships, helped awaken my inner strengths and has gotten me through losing my job. Thanks to her coaching, I am finally on the right path and am happy! She is an excellent coach and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a better way to live.”
