Hello! Heres about me and how I view
health and healing.
Born Carolyn Honey Schneider, and almost always called
Honey, I was a Rockland County, NY Chiropractor from 1984 to 2004. During
that time, I was the president of the New York State Chiropractic Association,
Rockland District, and active both on the board of directors and as President
of The Rockland Business Womens
Network. I served as Vice President to Blue
Horizons, which is a holistic healers network, and rode as a volunteer
Emergency Medical Technician for The Spring Hill Ambulance Corps. Great
fun and good feeling being an active contributor to my community.
Im the mother of two fantastic beings, grandmother
of a beautiful boy, taught elementary school in the USA and English as a
second language in Spain and Morocco, worked as an actress in musical comedy
in NYC, taught American history abroad by singing folk songs to foreign
students, speak fluent Spanish and French, some Arabic, Italian, Dutch and
Yiddish, love to sing, dance, play piano, guitar, ukulele and recorder,
travel, experience people, cultures, foods, languages and ways of being.
Isnt life exciting and amazing!
Yes, I am a chiropractor. And yes, an important mode
of my care is to gently align the vertebra. And yes, that removes abnormal
pressure from the nerves, which travel to every tissue, organ, gland, and
muscle, allowing the body to heal itself with proper nerve supply.
And I believe there is more to holistic healing.
often use only a conglomeration of techniques to deal with the outer manifestations
of illness; that is, with effects on the body, rather than causes. I believe
the realm of cause is also in the invisible aspect of a person.
A whole person consists of both their
inner world and their outer physical being, and also their
connection to something even larger than themselves. Some
might call this spirit, soul, destiny, patterning intelligence,
the all that is, the Oneness or lifes
longing for itself. When we work only on the body and
do not address the inner thoughts, emotions and the heart
of the person, we are not dealing with the whole person -
we are not practicing holistic health care.
This whole healing is a lifestyle... a
process that emphasizes health and harmony in body, mind and
spirit. It fosters an awareness of our responsibility for
our own well being. As a holistic practitioner, my goal is
to help you to become independent of the need for frequent
care, to help you develop your own personal healing tools,
and to restore harmony through your own efforts. It's learning
how and having the desire to carry out the plan. To my thinking,
it requires awareness, acceptance, understanding and a willingness
to change - and most importantly, the belief that all of this
So what are my healing tools?
Though I am no longer a New York chiropractor, I continue
to use touch to facilitate healing. The sense of touch is the earliest to
develop in the human embryo. The skin develops from the same tissue as does
the nervous system, and remains in intimate association with it through
life. In addition to being the largest organ of the body, the various elements
comprising the skin have an extremely large representation in the brain.
Stimulation of the skin is necessary for human survival, both physically
and behaviorally. We require tactile experience in order to develop and
to remain healthy human beings.
I also provide nourishment to the body with the "laying
on of hands. Some say that there is a transfer of energy (Prana, Chi,
Life Force) that takes place from one being to another through the touch.
It is more than just the physical body that is contacted... it's the emotional
body as well. I use Reiki, as well as skills I learned as a graduate of
the IM School of Healing Arts. Having become a Reverend, I am able to use
my hands for healing "legally" wherever I travel. My focus is
on personal evolution, movement towards self-mastery, and spiritual principles
as the foundation of healership. In helping others, I too experience a gift.
The energy flows and moves and the satisfaction is doubled. Giving is receiving!
In addition, I enjoy using therapeutic balancing and
fragrant Young Living essential oils, and lovely, soothing, deepening and
expanding music as part of my caring. I sometimes offer suggestions and
support for lifestyle changes and exercise, to help you deal with the stresses
of life. With my knowledge as a certified clinical nutritionist, I may make
dietary recommendations with foods, juices, herbs, Bach Flower Remedies,
"power foods and supplements.
Both in my chiropractic practice and my own life, I
saw how some thoughts create mental and physical ailments, unhappiness,
confusion and fear. I learned how I can help myself and others to be free
of these self-limiting beliefs and release historic negative emotional patterns,
simply through self-reflective and mindful questions.
In 2003 I dedicated energy to developing myself as an
Option Mentor, which involves listening deeply and using gentle, non-judgmental
and non-directive questions to help look at thoughts and feelings. This
is done in order to discover the beliefs that guide us, either toward joy
In 2008 I discovered The Work of Byron Katie. Katie
teaches a method to allow us freedom from stressful thinking through only
four simple questions and then turnarounds for our stressful
thoughts. This has helped me to see that sometimes the opposite of what
I believe is also true. And that I cannot even absolutely know that these
stressful thoughts are even true! I use Katie's work with my clients as
well. Katie has helped me add an expansive dimension to my life, and to
help others do the same, experiencing even more deeply how the tone of my
life is based on JUST my thought, my reaction to what is, and who I would
be without my story. She is a master!
These processes continue to transform my life, and by
becoming my own best expert using self-inquiry, I am enabled to make ongoing
daring and wonderful changes, currently living full-time in my motorhome,
traveling the USA, and to be more peaceful and joyous in my daily life.
I can facilitate your work as well. Please contact me or avail yourselves

Are there some changes you'd like to make in your own
life? The story you tell yourself determines your joy or misery! Is it true?
So, thats a lot about me.
