The work we do is classified by the National Institute of Health (NIH) as complementary alternative medicine or CAM which is being incorporated at a fundamental level into many local hospitals usually related to cancer treatments.  Pennsylvania Law classifies our work as Spiritual Medicine.  While Bender Healing offers very tangible business consulting options, environmental analysis,  personal training and nutrition counseling as part of our business and life coaching, we also offer massage and intuitive advanced energy medicine.

We believe our success is tied to your success.  We provide personalized wellness solutions for body, mind and spirit including unique energy solutions such as Reiki, Reflexology, Acupressure, Pranic Healing and other tools from Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Hawaiian, Tibetan and Native American healing traditions. Our life coaching tools include the popular Emotional Freedom Techniques and Medical Intuition.   We also do intuitive readings as a fun mini life coaching session for those who know more of what their spirit says about a situation.

You may also have heard of our work termed as holistic integrative medicine or body mind medicine. There are at least a dozen other names for the work since it is not yet been standardized.  The old term was Alternative Medicine, which congers up many new agers and apparently is a negative term for many. The Ancient term was going to see the tribe’s medicine man, shaman, kahuna, yogi, guru, master healer, wise woman, oracle or for some tribes it would be the witch doctor or hex doctor. We have trained with tribal medicine people, shamans, kahunas, master healers, yogis and gurus.  We learned healers and from doctors and psychologists, environmentalists, physical therapists, research scientists, master personal trainers and sports nutritionists. We bring a modern version to some thousand year old systems using our scientific background to provide the essential.

From a healing perspective, our sessions support your doctor’s work. We do not diagnosis disease.  Often we will suggest a visit to professionals including medical, dental, financial and psychological; we specialize in wellness of the spirit which is tightly integrated in all areas of life.  We only work within our education and certifications. Many of our tools are based in ancient healing systems from around the world. We also use modern tools which have been found to be effective, but we find that many of these are variations of an ancient system (Nothing new under the sun.)


Listed below are some of the items we use on a fairly regular basis, our training is more extensive. Most people come to us with a complaint, not requesting a specific modality. The modalities are mixed during a session and a client may receive pieces from seven different tools during the same hour when they come to their session.

Many of these life coaching and energy medicine can be done via phone consult.

Hands on Therapies including Massage, Reiki, Refleoxlogy & Energy MedicineMassage

Clients often start their journey toward wholeness with one of the dozen Bender Healing hands on therapies.

Normally you slip onto the table fully clothed in a relaxing environment where your stresses start melting away. Your heart beat slows and your blood pressure moves towards normal. Our knowledgeable therapists know exactly where to release pain and stress in your body using a combination of touch, movement and energy sweeps. When aromatherapy is used, the smell of aromatic oils or incenses co-mingle as your mind drifts away.

While you come in heavy and troubled, you leave lighter and energized. You are free to work through blockages and are encouraged to experience the emotions of fear, anger, sadness as it is unlocked and released from your cellular memory. You may leave with a new insight or a few stretches or exercises that will help you manage your stress while away from our stress oasis.

Usually you lay on a massage table, but you may be in a chair, standing or relaxing on the floor. Many tools are interactive, so you may move during the session. You usually aren’t ‘glued to the table’ in this work, but you may melt into the table!  Remember to wear comfey non restrictive clothes, old ones you won’t mind oil on for annointings.   For the work when oils are used such as massage, so you will remove your clothes and be draped.


Clients come to Bender Healing workshops to learn healthy lifestyle options and preventative health techniques. Some come to learn a healing style to use in their alternative practice. Most workshops are interactive requiring class participation. From learning your personal meditation style to learning how to release pain in a scar we are all about empowering the client with wellness information.

Ancient Healing Systems…

You may wish to try one of our bodyworks from an ancient healing systems based in ancient cultures from around the world and are energy spirit based.

Many issues have a spiritual component, estimated at 80% of illness has a spiritual component. We believe clearing the spiritual issue can help your wellness status because the spirit comes to peace and can work on the body and mind issues. Without this peace true health can not be achieved. Our systems include Chinese, Indian, Hawaiian, Japanese, Tibetan, and Native American systems.

Note that one can be spiritually healed without being physically cured. In our work, healing involves the health of the soul while curing involves health of the body. Once the soul is healed it can ripple the effects to the body and mind then we get what we call miracles, of course we can not guarantee your body will take on spiritual changes. The uniqueness to the ancient systems is this soul level work.

Note: Many ancient systems work with botanicals or herbals. We can help you sort out what you are doing but we choose not to sell herbals supplements. We will make you spirit essences, talk to you through how to use or make some essential oils and help you figure out if your spirit really needs a specific OTC supplement and how much it wants. We prefer to help someone nutritionally through diet correction, addressing the what and when they eat. We do not believe in fad diets especially since everyone’s requirements are unique.
