BioMagnetic Therapy Training
After personally experiencing the ill effects of Lyme disease and its’ many co-infections in her own body as well as her two daughters, Karen Cerato became trained as a Lyme Magnetic Protocol practitioner in 2016 with Joan Randall of Integrative Wellness in Woodstock, VT and continued her training to become an Advanced Level 4 LMP practitioner. In 2020, Karen expanded her skillset and became a Level 2 practitioner in BioMagnetic Duo therapy with Dr. Luis Garcia from the Morrison Center in
Manhattan, NY. In 2022, Karen deepened her biomagnetism training and became an Emotional Protocol practitioner with Janelle Salzman of Indra LLC. Weaving the three protocols together in a single session has enabled Karen to address infections, toxins, nervous system/ hormonal imbalances, emotions and emotional trauma that are intricately connected to physical healing, and more. Karen is fascinated on a daily basis by the enormous benefits her clients receive by this powerful modality and she is deeply honored to be one of the few practitioners in the country to be trained in all three protocols.
Driven by an inner longing to unite mind, body and spirit in her therapy work, Karen became trained in the Usui style of Reiki in 2002 and soon after established a Reiki private practice, offering both individual Reiki sessions and all- levels group Reiki certification classes. Karen is passionate about sharing and teaching Reiki to others thereby empowering them to ultimately take their health and wellness in their own hands and heal themselves.
Students travel from all over New England to attend Karen’s classes as she teaches from a place of humility and enormous gratitude for how Reiki has shaped and supported her own life. Karen teaches from a philosophy that “anyone can learn Reiki and we all have the ability to connect with Universal Life Force Energy.” Karen is one of the few teachers that continues to teach small, in-person classes and her classes are so highly sought-out that they often fill six months in advance.
An avid yogi for two decades in the styles of Kundalini and Power Vinyasa yoga, Karen trained as a yoga teacher in 2013 with Baron Baptiste, of the Baptiste Institute. Since then, she has attended numerous trainings throughout the country to expand her skillset and deepen her unique approach as a yoga teacher, bringing "to the mat" many specialized skills as an Occupational Therapist and Reiki Master Teacher. Karen's yoga offerings have included teaching group classes, offering private yoga instruction and yoga therapy sessions, teaching at large corporations and local schools, and teaching at week-long retreats both within the US and internationally. Yoga students from far and wide comment on their love for Karen’s classes with the detailed focus on alignment and form as well as the energy-healing component inherent in all of her classes.
Karen lives in Hollis, N.H. and enjoys yoga, kayaking, hiking, reading, gardening, skiing, snowshoeing, traveling, and dining with dear friends and family.
