I have enjoyed the hypnosis therapy and reiki sessions with you and I’ve been using your sleep aid CD and weight loss CD and they have both helped me in my sleep and relaxation and also i listen weekly to the weight loss CD to put me on track and give me the push I need.
I totally recommend Barbara sessions and CDs.”
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.
This is who you are,

Thank you so much for everything!!!!!!…… your wonderfully kind words, your encouragement, your caring, your dedication and determination, your healings, and your faith in me.
It’s been a long climb but you were always there for me, my inspiration.
I could not have done this without God and your unwavering help.
You literally saved my life and I will be eternally grateful!!!!!!
You are the one who should be so very proud of herself!
I just hope I can live up to your outstanding example.Love you,
Hi Barbara,How are you? I just wanted to give you some news which you had predicted. I found out on Saturday that I am pregnant. I am only 4 weeks so it’s very early. I am trying to be calm and hope for the best. Yesterday, March 12th, would have been the due date for my daughter. Needless to say, it was a very bittersweet weekend. Jeff and I went to Redondo for the weekend and had a little ceremony by the water to say goodbye to our daughter and think about the possibilities for a brighter future.Another coincidence – my new due date, if all goes well, would be November 20th, right around the time of my miscarriage. I don’t know what to make of that.
Jeff and I are hoping for a better outcome this time around. I can only take care of myself as best I can and take it one day at a time. I am relieved that I was able to get pregnant again; that is something I was really worried about. I will try to have faith that this time, things will be different.
Hi Barbara,Thanks for making an appointment with me on such short notice. I need a boost on the sleeping, anxiety reduction and weight management.First I want to let you know how much you helped me with sleeping, I can now get a good night’s sleep 90 percent of the time and I no longer take any sleeping medications. I sometimes wake during the night, with anxiety, but can tell myself “it’s time to sleep, nothing I can solve during the night” and I fall back asleep. Also noises still wake me, but I can immediately fall back asleep, this makes me feel safe, like if there was a fire I could wake up. Thank you so much for all your help,
I had no idea what to expect today and it was truly an amazing experience. I feel so at peace with myself right now and I’m looking forward to seeing what will come from this in the future. I have been starving for a stronger spiritual connection and today was a wonderful beginning.I believe you seeing my husband John tomorrow will be a great turning point in his healing.
Thank you, Lizlott
Barbara,Thank you for being there when I needed your help. Your loving prayers and healing has been a blessing!My brother Jim passed away on July 24th. Your prayers and healing helped Jim with his pain and with his transition. Your prayers also helped the family with some of the toughest decisions we will have to make in this life time.
Thank you for blessing my life!

Barbara,I went to sleep right after I sent you the last email last night.Thank you for doing distant healing on me. I slept better than I have in months, after about an hour of tossing and turning, and I feel near 100%! I’ll call you today.
is extensive.Since i have been working with Barbara Savin I have been able to release
many of the patterns that have caused problems for me both
psychologically and physically. Barbara is a very powerful, caring Healer. I
have met many Healers in the past, but I prefer Barbara because I have had
amazing results from her Healing hands.Before I became involved with Barbara I was suffering from recurring
bouts of muscle pains and headaches. Within a week of
receiving healing from her, my ailments cleared, and they have not
returned. It has been a year.I trust Barbara implicitly to help me with any problems that may arise. As
well as her great Healing abilities she is a wonderful counselor, and a
very loving and compassionate person.
It’s Time to be Sublime
I know your busy but just wanted to say thanks for seeing my son. I can see and feel a change in him. He seems excited about life right now. I really appreciate what you did for my family. I am still feeling really good and full of energy. I did have one bad day it just kind of hit my while I was driving down the freeway I got very teary and found it a little hard to breath and felt like I was losing all my energy. It lasted for a while than it passed and I felt good and full of energy again. I know you said I could have some emotional ups and downs, but can that hole in my back open up again?
Thank you again for everything. I would love to start learning more about healing and prana energy, can you tell me some good web sites and also where I can get your books?
Have a good day hope to hear from you soon
Have a wonderful day…………….MaryWE ARE GREAT!! HAPPY TO BE NON SMOKERS!! I BELEIVE WE ARE AT THE 30 DAY MARK– YIPPEE!! ITS GREAT TO BE FREE!! KRISTY
Hi Barbara,Just wanted to thank you so much for my visit to you several weeks ago. I have felt a huge difference and feel the wheels turning in a positive direction largely as a result of the work you did with me. I would like to come by soon but financially it was a lot for me. You deserve to make a lot because of the great work you do and I’m hoping to be able to see you again soon but if would have to be at a reduced rate due to my trying to move forward financially. Let me know if this is feasible for you or if not that is fine and I will just wait a while longer to come see you!Thanks again. Angie S
Hi Barbara,Thank you for the session yesterday. It is amazing to me that I actually feel lighter in my chest and shoulder area. Like some kind of weight has been taken off and it also feels like my chest has opened up. I even feel taller and it feels wonderful. My sleep was about the same but I felt less worried about it. I know it will get better.I look forward to working with you on Monday. Just as a reminder – we were also going to add to the script for me to pull my stomach in and not let it hang out. Is that a silly request?
Thanks so much – I look forward to seeing you on Monday. Hugs! Christy F
Hi Barbara,I had a lovely Thanksgiving with lots of reasons to be thankful. And I was actually thinking about you on Saturday. Family dinner party and there’s still one smoker who was outside all by himself. Very isolating, I now realize.My nephews are thrilled and so am I. I will be forever in your debt as you changed my life in magical ways. Thanks so much for making it not just bearable, but easy.
Thanks again, Barbara, and hope to see you soon.

I am totally smoke free and expect to remain so. I have no desire to either smoke or tell others not to. I have no emotional attachment to it whatsoever and I am so grateful to you for that. I still look up at the sky when I’m walking and think about how beautiful the world is (affirmation that is still there) and have not replaced the smoking with eating, though I gained 8 pounds, I’m doing everything right and have tried not to beat myself up about it too much, so it will come off eventually.I read about you in the LA Times maybe a month ago and was so pleased that the author of the article felt the same way about you that I do. Congratulations!I did want to schedule a session with you for healing touch. Should I contact CHLI directly?
Thanks again, Barbara, and I hope to see you soon.

It is difficult for me to put into words how Barbara Savin has contributed to my wellness since I met her (in a garage!) Why difficult? Because what she connects with in our lives is almost immeasurable, yet at the same time, a tool for health when nothing has worked. Magical? I’d like to think so, but my experiences in her class and in personal sessions have provided tools to produce energizing changes to my body that have healed symptoms which doctors could not address properly.Barbara Savin is compassionate, skilled and grounded. She is generous with her knowledge and has profoundly influenced the improvement of my health with her healing therapies. Barbara is a healing salve in this stressful and fast-paced era. I am so fortunate to know her.
Isn’t it amazing how one encounter with someone can change our life? We go through each day, content in our little worlds, thinking that we have our life’s path all figured out. We drive down the same streets, go to the same job, and it becomes so familiar that we become complacent. We stop thinking about what we do each day.Then one day, someone comes into our life and changes everything including our destiny. And so it was in 2001. I had been a visiting nurse for fifteen years and was doing just another routine visit when I met Barbara Savin. She was visiting her mother (my patient) who was ill at the time. We had pleasant conversations during my next few visits and found we had a mutual interest in the alternative medicine field. She was a practicing Reiki Master in New York at the time. Unfortunately, our time together was short since she returned home to New York.
Later on that year, I was back at the same household again taking care of Barbara’s mom. Barbara visited for a few days. We decided that although our backgrounds were very different, we wanted to try to work together somehow. Living twelve hundred miles apart made that seem impossible.
And then there’s fate. We are all part of an intricate puzzle, being moved around the board of life like chess pieces, while our destiny unfolds. When you are destined to be doing something other than what you are, your angels guide you along certain paths to help facilitate change. Sometimes you listen and when you don’t and the signals they send become louder and louder until one day you are forced to pay attention.
My awakening came one day while doing home health visits. I had not been content for some time, drowning in paperwork every day, and feeling like I was not accomplishing a thing. My frustrations grew to the point that I was asking for guidance. What should my path be? My answer came in a very strange way. I had a patient who lived in the same development as Barbara’s family. I decided I would stop by and say hello to Barbara’s parents. Well, to be more specific, I was compelled to go. I was, in fact, escorted to the door with an angel on either side of me. Arm in arm we went to the door with not much choice on my part. I soon discovered that her father had had a heart attack and open-heart surgery, and Barbara was in town at the hospital. Thankfully, he fully recovered, but, because of that “unexpected” encounter, Barbara and I made contact again. She decided to move down here to Florida to be close to her family and agreed to teach me Reiki so we could work together.
I was aware of auras and energy fields but had never heard of Reiki. It was inconceivable to me that something so Divine-like and spiritual could be so simple. That, in fact, all we have to do is ask for help to heal and it is there. I instinctively had always known that the body could heal itself but wasn’t quite sure how to facilitate it. I knew about the potential benefits of alternative therapies, and dealing with traditional medicine in my profession had always caused a conflict within me. Patients are given more and more medications to help supposedly them heal, when in fact, only the symptoms are being treated and the underlying cause remains a problem.
So in 2002, my life changed forever. Barbara taught me Reiki Level I and subsequently Level II and, finally, Master/Teacher Level. What a wonderful experience! Reiki brought me to another level of awareness. I no longer looked at life the same way. I realized that what I thought was life was just my physical body going through daily routines and experiences. With this new awareness, I realized that life is an electrifying and energetic experience. I felt connected with Universal energy and a part of the Divine. I realized how truly simple life is and that I was put on this path for spiritual maturity and fulfillment. I also realized how simple this is to accomplish because I had been given the one tool I needed to accomplish this – love. We can all be shown that when we have love, we are able to heal ourselves and with the skills learned in Reiki, heal others.
This has been a particularly interesting experience for me since I am a nurse. I now look at illness differently. It is not something we catch, are cursed with or acquire. Illness is something we give ourselves. By holding onto resentments from the past, having unresolved issues with our families and allowing ourselves to accumulate negative energy from our surroundings and others, we block the flow of our own healing energy. We are our own worst enemies. But with Reiki, we are shown how truly simple it is to heal. When I look at my patients now, I feel badly about how ill some of them really are. But then I find myself saying, “What is the lesson that this patient is supposed to be learning?” If everyone could only know how easily they could be made well by knowing about and practicing Reiki, people wouldn’t need nurses. I would be out of a job, but that would be a good thing.
Even though I am at the Reiki Master/Teacher level, I am still learning. Each day I become a little more patient, a little more compassionate, and have a little more insight. This was all made possible because of Barbara, who is such a loving and caring person. She is a true healer. She does not hesitate to share her knowledge, her experiences, and her love of helping others heal. Her compassion, gentleness, understanding and forgiveness make her a true role model of what we should all strive to be. By giving of herself, she has changed my life and has helped me grow spiritually. This is an ongoing process, and I am in awe each day as I gain more awareness of my energetic spirit and the workings of the Divine.
As for Barbara and myself … we are embarking on a spiritual journey together. We are working towards enlightening others by teaching them Gentle Energy Touch which is a combination of Reiki and Prana energy healing, and helping them heal themselves and others.
Consider the knowledge you are about to acquire a gift. Consider it the first step in your journey of self-discovery, enlightenment and spiritual healing. When we learn how to heal our bodies and our minds, and love others and ourselves, is when we truly grow and mature spiritually. With each step, we get closer to our true goal of reconnecting with the Divine.
With love and enlightenment to you all,
Joan Mazzeo-Little, RN

There are a few special people who cross your path in life and help change it for the better. For me, one of these people is Barbara Savin. Barbara is a genuinely beautiful spirit who gives of herself to help others achieve peace and calm in their lives. She is a natural born healer.I was fortunate to meet Barbara when she came in to interview for a position as a Reiki practitioner at a Women’s Center I was running. We offered conventional medicine and complementary therapies such as chiropractic manipulation, massage therapy, nutritional counseling, reflexology, yoga, and Pilates. To be frank, I did not know much about Reiki, and the little I did know did not convince me that it could help cure various maladies. I was a true skeptic. I asked Barbara to perform Reiki on me right then and there, but I only had ten to fifteen minutes to spare. Barbara explained that I would need at least thirty to sixty minutes to feel its effects completely, but she was willing to try it on me for fifteen minutes. Well, on this particular day, like too many others, I had about ten to fifteen things I needed to complete before I could even think about going home. My head was racing and I had a raging headache, most likely stress induced. Barbara slowly worked her “magic” as I sat quietly on a chair. After fifteen minutes I felt very relaxed, focused, and refreshed. I was sold.
After this wonderful encounter, Barbara worked on several patients at the center who loved her. At this point I started reading about Reiki and discovered its amazing history and beginnings. Reiki, I discovered, is considered to be Universal Life Force Energy. It helps provide a means of gaining happiness and helps heal various ailments and symptoms of a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual nature. Many recipients of Reiki experience relaxation, pain relief, stress reduction, and a sense of peacefulness and well-being. I have read several case reports of the amazing healing powers of Reiki from helping a child with asthma to helping a trauma victim stop bleeding.
At a very stressful time in my life when a “devil” crossed my path and destroyed a dream I had created, Barbara was there to offer me Reiki, and I accepted. It helped me clear my mind, relax, gain composure of my emotions, and give me permission to refocus the direction of my life. During one session I felt tingling throughout my whole body and another time I saw a white light completely engulf me, and then felt a complete calm wash over me. After several sessions, Barbara taught me how to do Reiki on myself. A great benefit of Reiki is that it can be taught to individuals for self-care, thus encouraging them to take responsibility for their own well-being and state of health. I was on my way to becoming a Reiki Level I practitioner. What a gift. Reiki is a wonderful means to help yourself and others. Barbara, thank you.
Lots of love and light,
Leia Stathakos M.D.
I had developed muscle aches and weakness in both arms and legs since starting prescription medicines for heart, cholesterol and high blood pressure. This limited my ability to walk and do self-care. I had to use a walker and could not walk long distances without tiring. I was also anemic and required injections on a regular basis to get my hemoglobin count up to twelve, but the effects did not last too long and my count would fall again. I found it difficult to concentrate on my office work and would fall asleep in the middle of doing it. I had a negative attitude about my health and spent much time focusing on my illnesses. Nothing any doctor did or suggested has given me the relief that the weekly Reiki therapy sessions produced.My participation in a relaxing meditative state during these sessions, using positive imagery of my healing angels, strong winds and flowing waters all sweeping, blowing and washing the stress and physical symptoms away, had a definite and positive effect. Upon arising from these sessions, I always have a strong sense of serenity and the ability to walk without any difficulties (without a walker) that lasts for quite a while. My mind is clearer and I am able to focus on my office work for several hours and not fall asleep. The frequency of the injections for my anemia has lessened, and my count actually hit thirteen, which it has never done! I have a much more positive mindset about my health and do not focus on my illnesses, but rather on my wellness. I find I am less stressed and am able to handle outside stresses much easier.
No matter why, how or when any of my problems (physical or mental) arise, the peacefulness I have developed and felt during your healing sessions has made it easier and more comfortable to live with and deal with them.
“Thank you”, Barbara for this “gift” you have given to me. I’ll see you for more!

After a difficult break-up from an abusive relationship, I turned to Reiki again. Although I had been in therapy for three years to help me deal with an abusive childhood, I felt the one Reiki session that I had with Barbara worked more than the three years in therapy combined. I enrolled in a Reiki I class, and it was a very emotional experience. I learned about the different chakras in the body and what each chakra represented. It also made me aware that we are all made of energy, and energy cannot be created or destroyed, so we still live on after we leave our physical bodies. Shortly after, I took Reiki II and learned the lessons of forgiveness and how it is important for us to forgive other people.When I give myself Reiki and work on a certain chakra, my questions about why I feel angry, lonely, or have other emotions created from fear, are usually answered. I was always questioning why I had to go through such an abusive and devastating experience with an ex-boyfriend and the answer came to me – it was to put me back in touch with my spiritual self and with God. I grew up as a Catholic and was taught to fear God. So when I became independent and lived on my own, I turned my back on God and decided that God was not real. In reality, what I really wanted to believe was that the Catholic vengeful God wasn’t real, and, therefore I could not be controlled and could be independent. I was raised in a strict household where I could never make my own decisions or do what I wanted to do. As I grew older, I felt that if I believed there wasn’t a God, then that would give me more freedom because I could make my own choices and not go to hell for doing things that were against the Catholic religion. Being in the abusive relationship made me find Reiki in order to heal myself, but believing in Reiki also meant that I must believe in God because it is God’s energy. Experiencing the Reiki energy makes me realize that God’s energy is part of us. It is still a struggle to accept that God gives me unconditional love, so I will continue to use Reiki to help me heal and let God back into my life.Last month I had my second Reiki session with Barbara. Before it started, I asked my grandmother again to come into the session for help. I didn’t feel her presence right away, but she did come in. I saw her in my mind’s eye, standing next to me wearing the familiar dress and apron. She gave me a big hug and I started to cry and release all the sadness and hurt that I held inside since she died when I was eight years old. I didn’t want her to leave me again, but when she had to go, I knew that she would always be there for me whenever I would ask for her. The Reiki session also helped me to take one step closer to faith in knowing that I am never alone; that God and my spirit guides and angels are always with me.
Living in New York City makes it hard to believe that anything beyond material success exists. I try to remember that I have the power of Reiki to help me heal and focus on my spiritual destiny instead of being controlled by the materialistic forces that tell me to buy this new product or that new gadget to be happy. It will continue to be a process to let go of my religious upbringing to let a loving God back into my life, but Reiki will help me along the way.
