Meet the Practitioners:
Ronica Perez, L.Ac.
Ronica Perez graduated summa cum laude from the National University of Health Sciences with a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture.
She is a diplomate of the NCCAOM (the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) and a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Illinois.
She became interested in Chinese medicine when she wasn’t happy with the answers she was getting from her child’s pediatrician. Someone had suggested to her that she see a ‘Chinese Doctor’ for her concerns. Because she knew nothing about this type of medicine and had heard so many warnings about the dangers of herbal medicine, she had to do some investigating. What she found was that not only did she want to start seeing these ‘Chinese Doctors’ but she wanted to become one. She went to the National University of Health Sciences to hear Dr. Kwon talk about acupuncture and oriental medicine. Dr. Kwon talked about how to treat the common cold. Using Chinese medical theories, he explained how one medicine would not work on all individuals who have a cold. He pointed to the people in the lecture and said though everyone in the room had a cold, this one had a fever, this one had a sore throat, this one had a clear, runny nose, and this one had chills. Chinese medicine looks at each person and records each symptom to make a prescription and treatment plan that is unique and specific to each individual. After listening to Dr. Kwon, she had to learn more, and immediately enrolled in the Master’s program for Acupuncture.
Ronica also incorporates ZYTO biofeedback technology. Using this extraordinary modern technology with the wisdom of the ancient philosophies, she is able to give each patient insight as to why they are experiencing discomforts and develop a plan not only to treat the current symptoms but also to try to prevent them from occurring again.
Chinese medicine requires the practitioner to be skilled at listening to patients and finding the ‘root cause’ of complaints. Patients are able to take more responsibility for their health and learn about the amazing healing capabilities of the human body. Instead of feeling “Why does this type of stuff always happen to me…,” the patient becomes empowered to change and to heal. The effects of the acupuncture treatments continue to amaze Ronica. She is constantly educating herself about this medicine that is thousands of years old and is honored to be able to share this knowledge with others.

Pam Montalbano, Massage Therapist
Pam’s goal as a Massage Therapist is to bring relaxation, restore energy, relieve pain and support the body's natural healing process. She focuses more on the spiritual aspects of massage allowing her intuition to guide her through each session. She creates a space where the body and spirit can communicate what it needs.
Pam is trained in several modalities including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Esalen, Lymphatic, Thai Massage, Prenatal, Oncology Massage, Cranial Sacral and Reiki. Each session is tailored to the client’s specific needs. She pulls from each of these modalities to create a unique healing experience. She may combine relaxation, deep tissue, stretching and energy work all within one session. Her technique includes using long flowing deep strokes, deep enough to allow healing but gentle enough to allow the client to remain relaxed.
On a more personal note, Pam has lived in the Tinley Park area most of her life. She has two amazing kids who keep her and her husband very busy. She enjoys running, reading, meditation, journaling and yoga. She partakes in anything that brings her closer to understanding the secrets of life.

Nikki Xicotencatl, Spiritual Medium
Spirituality has played a major role in Nikki’s life since she was a small child. She knew she was different at a very young age when she could see and talk to dead people. She knew there was life after death and that spiritual energies could come back and forth from wherever they lived to guide, love and communicate with us.
In November of 1998, she found out what all of this meant when she had a spiritual awakening. During this time, she was given tools to recognize the information that was flowing from her spiritual self to her human self. This “awakening” lasted approximately four minutes after which she cried for four hours. So many things became clear to her and so many of her questions had been answered in those four minutes. She describes this experience as devastating, exhilarating, scary, mystifying and liberating but most of all peaceful. She was provided with a different perception of current and past situations.
Her new perception came from another place which she can only describe as a place of “knowing” but she couldn’t find the words to describe this to anyone, so she prayed. She asked God to show her a way to explain what happened to her in words so that she could help people to feel the peace that she was feeling. From that point, God has orchestrated a symphony of learning experiences which have resulted in the classes and services she offers. Her hope is that you find the peace that awakens all your inner truths and enlightens you on your path.

Roni Roehlk, Master Reiki Practitioner, Life Coach
Roni started studying meditation in her early 20’s searching for inner peace along with a higher purpose for understanding universal power. She spent countless days and hours taking courses, reading books, attending any and every seminar she could think of to open her mind to universal energy flow and quantum physics.
She was a single mother working in the world of hairdressing. She traveled the country training and teaching to others, flourishing in her own artistic craft. After 26 years of an incredible journey, she realized that her true passion was to help guide and inspire those to become the best they can be.
Her approach was of a spiritual nature combined with artistry. She learned then that she was a natural healer and her love for eternal growth for others was her true purpose in life.

Benjamin Savage, Gong Meditations
Benjamin Savage is an artist and friend of the gong. He has studied Shamanism and Buddhism for over 20 years, he is a lifelong seeker and spiritually oriented being; a child of Nature. He has a strong connection to universal intuition and is motivated through that intuition in his performances and in his life. Since a child he has explored many spiritual traditions searching for the unifying elements connecting all paths; the resonating truth of love and light in all beings. This has led him to the gong, which seems to be a portal for communicating directly with the oneness that connects and permeates all things. Benjamin performs gong meditations (or gong baths) and creates artwork to facilitate reconnection with the divine in all things.
Group Sessions: Relax in a zero-gravity chair and enjoy the healing benefits of the gong. The tones and vibrations produced by the gong allow for many levels of healing the body. Every experience is different and unique based on the needs of the body at that particular moment in time. Benjamin is always available after the session if you would like to share your experience.
Individual Sessions: Using the sounds and vibrations of the gongs, Benjamin creates a powerful and harmonic healing experience. The incorporation of sound therapy allows the body to open up and be free to experience transformations on all levels.

Monica Ruane, Aromatherapist, Reflexolgy
Aromatherapy is defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit.
On a deeper level, essential oils are the "spirits" of plants, trees, flowers, seeds and resins. Essential oils are the original "medicine" of our ancestors and they heal on emotional, spiritual, mental and physical levels. Monica connects with the spirits of the essential oils and intuitively uses them to heal others.
As a certified Aromatherapist, Monica is able to create custom oil blends for her clients that promote well-being within the delicate balance of body, mind and spirit. The Plant Kingdom offers a vast array of options for situations ranging from medical conditions, to maintaining wellness, to expanding one’s intuitive and spiritual experiences. For some, the magnitude and diversity of these options is a bit overwhelming, and they need some assistance in determining which essences are best for their needs and interests.

He began a Tai Chi course at Elmhurst Park District, as means to improve his overall health and sense of balance. In November 2001, John began training in the Korean martial art of Tang Soo Do. In the spring of 2002, he spent a month backpacking round China. During that trip he had the opportunity to practice Tai Chi and Qi Gong in the parks with the locals. John has found his teaching has helped develop his understanding of the martial arts, their true depths, and the connection between martial arts, qi gong, acupressure, acupuncture, reflexology, Reiki, traditional Chinese medicine and the I Ching. To truly understand martial arts he has found you need to understand all these aspects, to learn how to heal as well as defend.
