Cheryl Poirier

Registered Massage Therapist - MPC# 8
info@thepomegranatetree.ca

In the 18 years since Cheryl began practicing massage therapy she has had the privilege of treating a wide variety of clients and conditions. Everything from sports injuries and motor vehicle rehabilitation to helping clients deal with everyday stress and, relief for the weekend warrior. Also trained in The Yuen Method™ of energy healing, Cheryl practices with a trusted balance of compassion, intuition, integrity and humour.

It is Cheryl’s belief that health, wellness and fitness are all branches of our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being and that balance amongst them, while essential for life, isn’t necessarily achieved everyday but over a period of time.

In her spare time you can find Cheryl auditioning for the “role of a lifetime” as an actress. Having appeared in numerous commercials as well as several TV shows, Cheryl loves being in front of the camera but also finds great satisfaction in writing her film length screen plays as well as her pet project, a sit com, playfully entitled “Suck This!” about mid-life reinvention.

Re-invention is what has led Cheryl to move from a physical hands on massage therapy practice to combining that practice with energy healing in the form of Energetic Cellular Re-Alignment.

ENERGETIC CELLULAR RE-ALIGNMENT

Is an energetic healing based on the Yuen Method™ principle that the body is essentially a computer and the brain and spine are the hard drive. As hard drives are binary, they are either “on or off”, “yes or no” or “strong or weak”. It’s these “weaknesses” or “no’s” that Energetic Cellular Re-alignment affect.

By shifting energy through the spine or “hard drive”, physical and emotional disturbances and pain can be positively affected and even eliminated.
