Jillian is a Certified Reiki Practitioner!
Rei=Universal Ki=Life Energy
Reiki (pronounced Ray key) is a spiritual healing art.  The practice of transmitting healing energy through the hands.
Reiki is based on the philosophy that there is a universal energy that supports the body's inherent self-healing abilities.  Reiki Practitioners seek to access this energy, allowing it to flow to the body and facilitate the healing process. 
Reiki is believed to have originated in Tibet thousands of years ago, and current Reiki practice can be traced to the spiritual teachings of Mikao Usui in Japan during the 20th century.  Jillian is a direct decendant of the Usui linage. 
You can use Reiki as a wonderful complimentary therapy in your personal wellness or healing program.    It is used for stress reduction, relaxation, and symptom relief in efforts to improve overall health and well-being and it is almost always a relaxing experience.
Reiki is used in many settings including hospitals and hospices, as well as private practice and in self-care and as complimentary therapy in a personal wellness or healing program.
Sessions conducted in-person or via long distance.

There are many traditions for the placenta, or tree of life, after the birth of your child. In some cultures it is hung from a tree, floated down river, buried by the door or under a special tree or plant. In practices based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, the placenta is prepared by steaming and dehydrating before being processed into a powder for use in remedies. Whether you plan on encapsulating, tree burial or other options, Hudson Valley Placenta Services is here to help you.


The purpose of the mother ingesting encapsulated placenta is to reintroduce the beneficial vitamins, minerals, hormones, proteins, and other nutrients to her body following labor and birth that are reported by mothers to help restore a more balanced body function, assist in improving mood, increase breast-milk production, shorten healing time, increase maternal energy levels,  and provide an over-all feeling of wellness. Your placenta is made just for you and your baby! Placenta has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries and is now gaining acceptance in the United States as natural way to facilitate health and well-being postpartum.

If you are interested in experiencing the benefits of this organ-of-life, Professional Placenta Encapsulation Services may be the right choice for you! In capsule form, you do not need to chew or taste anything- just swallow with a sip of your favorite beverage and say hello to all that your placenta has to offer you. Some TCM Practitioners actually recommend taking your capsules with food and a bit of wine to help diffuse it through the body. Placenta Tinctures are thought to be helpful with menopause and can be used to make other placental remedies. Your placenta is intended only for ingestion by you and for safety reasons, should not be shared with other individuals.


Hudson Valley Placenta Services offers two methods of preparation for encapsulation. We also offer Commemorative Placenta Preparation in a keepsake bottle and are open to other options as well. For more options like Placenta Prints, Tincture, etc. be sure to look over the Options page of this website. Prints & Tinctures are optional services offered at no additional cost.

Jillian is currently studying to be a Certified Aromatherapist!
Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses plant materials and aromatic plant oils, including essential oils, and other aromatic compounds for the purpose of altering one's mood, cognitive, psychological or physical wellbeing.
Aromatherapists, who specialise in the practice of aromatherapy, utilise blends of therapeutic essential oils that can be issued through topical application, massage, inhalation or water immersion to stimulate a desired response.
The use of essential oils for therapeutic, spiritual, hygienic and ritualistic purposes goes back to a number of ancient civilizations including the Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans who used them in cosmetics, perfumes and drugs
