BodyMind Matters              because YOU matter!
About Us:      Chris Hammer & Lorie Speciale



My passion for art, music and poetry infuse and inform all that that I do. In a session with me, you will find me to be a kind teacher who is eager to create a safe atmosphere for you to discover love, laughs and ease. As a compassionate listener, I will guide you to live from your true self. I recently retired from a physical therapy career working for over 30 years in a school for children with disabilities as a physical therapist and a clinical supervisor. I am currently an artdoll artist, ARTbundance™coach, Certified Rubenfeld Synergist®, faculty in the Rubenfeld Synergy Training Program, and an EFT Practitioner.

I am a gentle Intuitive Guide who listens with all my senses. Sessions with me are inspired, fun and creative. I help you connect to your true nature, your essential self, and release downloaded outdated programs that interrupt your natural flow and life force. These downloaded programs are usually unconscious and create distress, discomfort or dis-ease in your body, mind, emotions and spirit. As we work together, you can begin to clear what is no longer needed and take with you valuable awarenesses and useful tools. In partnership I can see, hold a sacred space, and reflect back the miracle that you truly are. Connecting to what is really true about you and what is true for you creates an opening in your life in which what you desire becomes possible.

I am a New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor, a Certified Rubenfeld Synergist®, a Gestalt Therapist and Certified in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). Driven by my own desire to move from fear to faith, because of my own life challenges, I've been highly motivated to extract, distill and integrate what I've learned from studying and experienced many different body and mind therapies. 

I have a love of learning and I continue to expand my knowledge and experience as I move through all of my own experiences with increasing faith. I know that it is possible to return to love and joy, no matter what struggles life brings. I'm committed to helping others do that in their own lives as well.
