The pearl is the product of pain and wound that has been healed. As we accept the challenges in our own lives, we will also be building a string of precious pearls. The shell of the oyster is pierced, and an alien substance or grain of sand slips inside.

On the entry of the foreign irritant all the resources within the sensitive oyster rush to that spot and begin to release healing fluids that otherwise would have remained dormant. And, as the irritant sand is continually converged upon by the fluids a pearl is made…
“Pearls to Remember” by Barbara S. McDonagh

Here are some quotes from patients…

“I was at Dr. Guarneri’s clinic in October [2017], and was most fortunate to have an appointment with you, Dr. Cohen [D.O.], that day. You mainly worked on my hip area, and it led to 2 days of feeling like a normal person–after over 20 years of feeling far from that. It was obvious to me that you knew, intuited, what you were doing!!!” –Susan Walker, 2018.

“I sing the praises of your office wherever I go. I continue to be amazed by the exceptional level of service and devotion from everyone on your staff. Amazing.”

“Thank you so much for all the care you’ve given to my Mom and me! Your encouragement that I pursue yoga and meditation for anxiety and depression has changed my life toward good health and serenity.”

“You put me on a path to both physical and emotional wellness. You showed me that I had a say in my future, and that together, the two of us could work against what I saw as my destiny…You empowered me!”

“I thought I just needed to lose weight! As of a result of my involvement, I have “become” a Healing Touch practitioner, a meditator, a vegetarian, and thankfully a much healthier and calmer person. Blessings to you.”

“Your integrative approach to my care has made so much sense… you lead people to be more productive and happier and healthier.”

“My family and I have just completed viewing ‘The Science of Natural Medicine,’ an exceptional lecture –one that should be required viewing by all. I commend you for providing us with such a wonderful way of looking at food and medicine — thank you!” (Dr. Guarneri’s DVD set – link here)

“Rauni made all the difference! Her hypnotherapy imagery got me calm and asleep in her session with me instantly. She totally turned my fear to calm.”
