Experience the Difference
My name is Celeste Hope and I am a wellness coach: Pilates expert, trainer, natural foods chef, Reiki master, and healer. My personal wellness journey started when I was a kid. Despite being born with aortic insufficiency and having suffered other traumas to my lungs, I always had a love for exercise, muscles, athletic performance, and healthy eating. I was a professional dancer into my 20s, studied and competed in Tae Kwon Do, trained and became a trainer at the gym, and learned to have a love/hate relationship with running. During my late 20s after leaving a prestigious job at New York’s premier investment bank, I worked as a personal trainer and covered Yoga and Pilates classes at the gym when necessary. With nothing more than the knowledge from my at home practices of yoga and Pilates and my understanding of the body and it’s best mechanics, I applied what I knew and became a sought after teacher in the gym. Without the expert training in Pilates, specifically, the gym agreed to send me for comprehensive Pilates training and personal training instruction because they knew I brought in clients and got results. That was the start of my PIlates journey that turned into a Private practice for the past 20 years. I was later on diagnosed with lupus (undifferentiated connective tissue disease). I determined to reverse the disease in my body naturally and through dietary changes and reiki healing, along with my other healthy lifestyle habits, and was able to put the lupus in complete remission. I became a reiki master over a number of years, and decided to become a natural foods chef, studying at the former legendary Natural Gourmet Institute.

REIKI HEALING AND MEDITATION
Reiki is an ancient healing art integrating mind, body, and spirit. “Rei Ki” means “universal life energy”.
Reiki can be used for relaxation and is a form of physical, mental and spiritual healing. Reiki accelerates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. In Reiki therapy the “energy” is channelled through the therapist’s hands, allowing the client to relax deeply and enabling the body, mind, and spirit to release pain and stress.
There is no belief system attached to Reiki. Reiki is not a religion. It faciliates healing wherever healing is needed and wanted. It will alleviate pain, whether is is the result of injury or illness and will release stress whatever the cause. Reiki supports and complements all forms of treatment both orthodox and complementary. It may also be used successfully to enhance medical interventions, i.e. before and after surgery. Reiki can be used before any stressful event or after to clear stress. Chronic illness can become more manageable with regular treatments, and many people with terminal illness find reconciliation and comfort through Reiki.
Clients remain fully clothed for the treatment and there is no manipulation or discomfort. Generally a course of 3 – 6 treatments is needed depending on the severity of the symptoms and how long they have been present. Each treatment is on average 45 minutes.
