Testimonials for: EM & MA Trainings
I highly recommend receiving Reiki training from Chantal. She is wonderful teacher who is loving, gracious, kind and knowledgeable. She provides her students with detailed coursework materials to study from and many opportunities to practice this spiritual work. She embodies Reiki and is truly a master in every sense of the word. I will also add that I was completely transformed by learning Reiki.
My extrasensory perception is significantly enhanced and I have been awakened to the spiritual world in new and amazing ways. You've heard the commercials from advertisers that promise that you'll amaze your friends by the changes that will happen to you when you use their product or take their course? Well that exactly describes what has happened to me.
My life is full of joy and appears to be guided by the angelic realm. I was just introduced to the work of Doreen Virtue and found myself nodding in agreement while reading all her descriptions of how angels communicate with us, because this is how I now experience life.
This is not to say that I no longer encounter difficulties; however, the sense of awe from the happenings and gifts received each day has been unending since taking Reiki I and Reiki II and regularly following the practice.
I very much look forward to taking the Reiki III class with Chantal.
—Maria B. Reiki Practitioner with IEMI, From Bethany, CT.
I've recently had the pleasure of studying Reiki 1 with Chantal and can't begin to tell you how grateful I am for finally learning this modality. I had studied with a couple of different teachers and never felt confident enough to practice. With Chantal I found her to be very knowledgeable and she taught in such a way that even the novice beginner could understand. Most important to me was how she honored the sacred space of receiving the attunements separate from class. I left knowing what was expected of me if I chose to move on or not and how simple it can be to use this energy in everyday life. I recommend this class with Chantal as a true blessing and a wonderful gift for self. – Laura K. of Wallingford/ Meriden
After taking Reiki 2 I can honestly say Chantal is a true inspiration to work with and learn from. She teaches all the curriculum that's needed and also keeps sacred space for attunements which is very important. I left knowing what I am capable of and what exactly is required of me to practice on others to share the gift of Reiki. I've taken a few Rieki classes with other teachers and just never felt the class was taught seriously enough for me to practice but with Chantal it was very clear and she made sure everyone understood how to move forward. Another great gift to learn and share. Forever grateful! —Laura K. of Wallingford/ Meriden
Thanks to both levels of Reiki training I have received from Chantal, I feel that I have been given dynamic tools to make a difference in the world. My intention as a musician is to promote healing prayers for humanity and Mother Earth. Reiki has allowed me to channel energy in support of this intention without getting "tripped up" by my ego. I highly recommend Chantal's Reiki classes for anyone seeking truly empowering and enriching life experiences.

I came to Reiki after stopping work as a full time as a psychiatric nurse for over 20 years. I had experienced energy work in the past, and felt I was someone who was sensitive to feeling energy, when healing techniques were used on me.
After my Reiki 1 certification, I remember a distinct change in my perception, I felt more able to sense the energy of those around me. Doing Reiki on myself, I felt further heightened my perception of energy as I did Reiki sessions on others. Also I just felt more optimistic and more in touch with opportunities, and what the universe could offer me.
After the Level 2 certification, I began doing more Reiki on others, I began doing distance Reiki on a friend of the family who lives out of state. My perception of the energy I was feeling was intensified, I started to feel more in touch with my Reiki guides and was more able to give feedback to clients I worked on.
At this point I wanted to be able to share Reiki more, and the opportunities just seemed to present themselves. It felt like the universe made available to me opportunities to pursue what I was interested in; but I also felt like my desires were more in alignment with what my purpose here is. I understood my purpose, and that my experiences in life have lead me to this point. Looking for opportunities to do Reiki, I found the Yale New Haven Hospital uses Reiki volunteers. I applied and was hired to be a Reiki volunteer.
After several months of volunteering and getting a lot more experience doing Reiki, I had the required 40 hours of practice to take level 3. I then took my Reiki 3 certification class.
With each class my awareness increased, and my feeling of strength in knowing what my purpose is. My sense of fear went away, I feel more confident in what I am doing. I don’t question it, I don’t worry about it. I know I am doing what I am meant to do.
This is my story. Reiki has worked for me at this point in my life. But on a basic level, I feel that Reiki has put me in touch with what is best for me, and allowed me to release my fear and simply be!
Obviously, I was able to get in touch with all of this from Chantal's teaching but I also think anyone who really wants the best experience has to be willing to do their own work and to get in touch with their own energy and what their path is.
— Kim L., Reiki Master with IEMI. From Guilford, CT.
Chantal is a powerful healer, a knowledgeable source on several healing modalities, and an excellent teacher of Reiki. Not only did she clearly present class material and patiently answer questions, but also, she personalized my learning experience so that it was tailored to the healing projects unique to me. Class time flew by, as she fluidly moved from lecture, to receiving symbols, to practical training.
I have taken several classes over the years on different forms of energy healing, and put Chantal at the top of my list of recommended teachers. What’s more, I practice what I learned from Chantal almost every day, on myself and/or others. My clients and I all feel the healing effects, e.g. pain and inflammation subside or disappear, and physical and emotional stress is relieved resulting in relaxation.
I am deeply grateful to Chantal for introducing me to Reiki, encouraging my practice, and directing myself and others toward wellness.
— Robyn, Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner, Reiki with IEMII, Guilford, CT
After completing Reiki level one with Chantal I left with such a thirst for more knowledge. I came to the training with no intent to teach Reiki or become an active practitioner. I can say that I now have a desire for both and much more. There is so much to learn from Chantal- there aren't enough hours in the day! She is an infinite well of wisdom and knowledge and I look forward to continue to learn from her and to integrate the teachings into my life. I feel confident in my own abilities after going through training and I can feel that the information is coming from a very experienced, genuine and intuitive source. I feel very blessed that my path led me to her! Thanks. —Angela Pescetti. Greenwich, CT
Chantal Guillou-Brennan's Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 classes are excellent for anyone wanting to learn about Reiki. Chantal uses her insights and experiences to enhance her strong knowledge of the subject. It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommended it to anyone interested in learning about Reiki.
— Sincerely, Jesse Rovero. Danbury CT
Chantal's presentation and organization of the lineage and the teaching materials is excellent. The attunements are very spiritual, deep and allows one to really acquire a feel for one's guide on this very special journey into the temple, the ceremony, and the familiarity of observers within in Reiki I.
In Reiki II, a similar feel is witnessed in the attunements. In addition, the symbols and the actual practice with a fellow classmate are very helpful and add depth to our role as vessels who channel the healing power of the Divine.
Chantal's experience and many spiritual gifts come through throughout the whole process. I am looking forward to Reiki III in November.
— E. Leiva, Reiki II with IEMI, Personal Coach.
Thank you for the Reiki One certificate. It's the one and only Reiki One certificate I've ever received! (I took Reiki 1 twice before but I never felt anything.) Since the class I've run Access Bars on a couple of people and feel a difference in that my hands and every Bars point gets extremely warm, hot even. During one session of one hour and 15 minutes my hands actually felt like they were sweating [I think they were!], that's how hot the releasing energy was. Before the class, I frequently felt warmth from some Bars points, but usually not all, and not always for the entire time on any one point . Now it's every point and for the entire time. Reiki has ramped up the potency and I believe the effectiveness of my Bars sessions. It's incredible. I am still a bit in shock about it..... experiencing such a big change after 4 years of being a professional Bars practitioner. Thank you so much!! Love, Light and Aloha, Marilyn, Honolulu, HI
Chantal Guillon Brennan is an excellent instructor, she took her time to be sure we understood clearly all aspects of the course. Answered all questions on how to heal myself and others. The amount of information was at first site overwhelming but with her assistance I had a much better understanding. I would absolutely recommend her classes and would attend additional classes myself. Thank you for the opportunity.
— Bob B., Newtown, CT
I was attuned to Reiki third level by Chantal. I first met Chantal at a Reiki share. As I was reiking her, realized a lot more energy was flowing to me as if she were Giving me Reiki. She has an exceptional understanding of energy. She knows how it is manifested in one and offers assistance in a positive manner. Chantal is truly gifted and talented, very loving and an exceptional person. So happy I met her.
— Anna Bagley, Reiki Master fromIEMI, Madison CT
Thank you so much Chantal! It was such an amazing experience with you on Saturday. You are a phenomenal teacher and facilitator. I look forward to working with you more in the future. I am already experiencing so much joy after receiving my attunements! — Rachael Nicole. Stamford, CT
Thank you so much! I love your drumming circles, and look forward to next week's Shamanism 101 class. — Wendy, Milford, CT
Thank you so much for all of this amazing information! I had such a great time at your Shamanic Dream presentation and guided meditation. I learned so much and now feel a deep calling towards healing. I would like to work with you in healing and connecting with my higher self. I feel a deep yearning to become my greatest version and help assist in this planetary transformation but I have much inner work to do. I felt a strong connection with what you share. —Rachael J. Fairfield, CT
I recently took your shamanism 101 work shop and it was great! You were attentive, focused, and informative. Great for anyone looking to get in touch with their inner shaman! I look forward to taking another course with you soon! — Lexi Jacobson, Plainsville, CT.
I would very much recommend the Shamanism 101 training intensive with Chantal. It was a full day of learning filled with synchronicities, spiritual support, and high vibrations. It felt safe and relaxed in the sacred space created by Chantal. Within a couple of weeks of participating in the training and applying what I had learned, I was able to accomplish something that I had previously attempted many times, but had not had the courage to carry out. It was a wonderful surprise to discover that the tools and techniques learned in this class could be life changing.
— Maria B., Bethany, CT.
Chantal's facilitation of exploring alternate/unexplored realities through breathwork, visualization, drumming and sound is fun, easy and light hearted. She shares generously and freely a vast knowledge of internal landscapes she has journeyed within and the resources to duplicate the field in a safe supportive environment. I so look forward to more opportunities to play in these unified fields in Love.
—Jan Salerno, Artist and Healing Practitioner, Kona HI
I enrolled in a course of Mastery of Awareness taught by Chantal Guillou-Brennan last year and I am honored to be able to try and put into words how impressed I am with this talented, professional woman. I have been extremely fortunate to have experienced several healing modalities performed by Chantal Guillou-Brennan in the past, so when this course was offered, I was confident that it, also, would showcase her talents as a healer and mentor. She has broadened and strengthened my abilities to focus my energy, identify my strengths and limitations and improve and build upon all that is great and possible in my life. She did this by exposing me to a variety of means to explore my world and brought me courage to try new things in order to grow and move my life in a direction of clarity. I would advise and encourage anyone to benefit from the healing powers and knowledge this woman possesses. They would be blessed and forever changed if they are lucky enough to be included in one of her courses or the chance to witness first hand her healing abilities.
— Joy Degenaro, Reiki Master from the IEMI, West Haven CT
The Shamanim 101 training was wonderful. Our group consisted of individuals in different levels of their Shamanistic journey; yet, Chantal worked with each of us to make sure each of us would not only learn all we could in the training but would also have the ability to continue our journeys once we completed the course. If you are interest in Shamanism, this is an excellent place to begin.
— Holly K. Bridgeport CT.
Chantal did a great job! I learned some new things and had a wonderful day. She attracted such nice people as well. I recommend her classes. — Ronnie Ann Ryan, Milford CT.
I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to attend classes and workshops with Chantal Guillou-Brennan. Chantal's knowledge of various healing modalities and spiritual traditions, coupled with her attentive and compassionate manner made me feel safe and supported on my first journey into the exploration of consciousness. With Chantal's guidance, I discovered a whole new dimension that has helped me in my daily life.
— Rosemary T., Yoga and Pilates teacher, Reiki II with IEMI, Stratford CT
Chantal is a very dedicated and knowledgeable healer and light worker. She has much to teach and share with us. She cares deeply about people and is driven to discover ways to help humanity heal and evolve into higher consciousness. I have experienced her work at presentations and she is professional and has a strong command of the subjects that she is offering us. I highly recommend Chantal's work to anyone who is interested in becoming a more aware and awake individual.
— Al Whitman, Entrepreneur, Kona HI
When I met Chantal for my QHHT session, I was not sure what to expect. I had read about QHHT, but was feeling a bit apprehensive. I immediately felt relaxed and comfortable with Chantal. She took the time and consideration to discuss many details of my life to ensure I would have a knowledgeable and enjoyable experience. I was able to connect to a part of my past which has enabled me to stop questioning my own faults and move forward with love, joy and contentment in my current life. Chantal is a wonderful, caring person and I would highly recommend a session with her for anyone who wants to develop a deeper consciousness of who they are and feel whole.
—Donna from Branford, CT
Just finished listening to the session. Wowee! Intense to say the least. Thank you so much for hanging in there with all the questions I had brought with me. I sincerely appreciate the generosity of your time and your devotion to the work.
I have felt a difference physically, emotionally and mentally.
I had to stop taking my blood pressure medication for the past two days as I went as low as 94/60 and thought I was just going to drop. My palpitations have been moderate given the fact that the sun was over the top active with a solar wind affecting the planet on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The grief release was tremendous. Thoughts of (- - -) being gone have not even entered my mind and the only crying I have done in three days was today when I listened to myself crying the two or three times on the recording. I feel like a huge burden has been dissolved. I saw my massage therapist the next day and before the session she (who is pretty intuitive with energy) said, "What's different about you? Your eyes look more alive and you feel lighter.
Most importantly was all the valuable information that came forth for my purpose, my healing, establishing kinship and possibly what I can anticipate as my future path. I will be digesting this for quite a while, but the timing of meeting you could not have been better. Again, much gratitude for the work you do.
— Roberta C., Milford CT.
I want to thank you for a lovely session. We spent a long time together. I appreciate your dedication and trust in the process.
I witnessed your patience and very skillful way of summarizing my 'issues' and
questions, of which were many!
I never felt uncomfortable. You gave me great hope and faith that I, too, could do this because it would not be me doing it, but Spirit coming through.
This is something I did not understand, and now it is becoming more clear.
Thank you, and have a great weekend.
— Rebecca F. from Stamford, CT
Since my QHHT session I have seen great improvement in my neck pain and the lessening of migraines that had been frequent painful experiences. On another level, the emotional static at home has improved as well. But most important for me was the connection with my subconscious that I experienced during my session. Prior to that I had received messages, feelings, knowings. But in the session, I could hear a voice come through me that was different, stronger, more definite, wiser and that even sounded different than the me that I had always experienced. I feel as if I have truly met my higher self and this is a source of deep peacefulness for me. I felt that Chantal was a wonderful guide on this journey, not pushing me nor holding me back, just right there for the experience.
— Jamie D. Shelton, CT
Chantal is a deeply intuitive and caring healer, well versed in many modalities of energy healing, hypnosis and shamanic journeying. My experiences with her work have always been positive and wholly beneficial; I recommend her highly to anyone seeking alternative healing for body, mind and spirit.
—Adelita Chirino, Milford CT
These treatments include a combination of modalies as needed by the client.
The IEM session did have significant benefits. I believe the Jin Shin Jyutsu had a great impact. (Probably because my body was extremely grateful for something it had not experienced before). For at least 32 hours I was walking great with absolutely no pain. The nerve sensations in my shoulder and neck were down to an occasional dull tingle only if I moved in a certain way. Pain reduction by at least 80%. The most surprising benefit - When I first got in the car to drive home my right hand was almost completely numb. By the time I drove past Milford Hospital all sensation had come back. Hours later I noticed that I could make a complete fist with my right hand - something I have not been able to do in a year. Amazingly I can still do it two days later!
FOLLOW-UP SESSION: Today's session was unbelievably trans-formative. I haven't felt this alive and awake in years. A foreign feeling of peacefulness and relaxed in my own body has overtaken me! Thank you for taking all the extra time today to send me out the door in complete harmony with myself. As everyone who knows me would agree, you don't hear the words, "I feel fantastic" come out of my mouth. I am gently commanding all my bodies to hold this resonance so I can wake up feeling just as great tomorrow!
Much gratitude and appreciation for the light you shine into this world,
— Roberta C., Milford CT
I highly recommend Chantal as a coach/spiritual mentor. In addition to being a superb teacher of various spiritual healing arts, she is well versed in a wide range of healing modalities and expertly incorporates all of her knowledge when coaching and mentoring her clients. Modalities she incorporates include Reiki, divination, EFT, hypnosis and regression therapies. Chantal's innate gifts for healing work have opened me up spiritually and have brought healing to various aspects of my life. It is a true pleasure to be working with this caring, talented, and soulful practitioner.— Maria B. Bethany, CT
When I first met Chantal three years ago, my body was fllled with pain which seemed to travel from one place to the next. I lacked energy and motivation. I was afraid to go out of the house for fear of getting hurt. Today I am proud to say that I finally live my dream!
It wasn't an easy journey, It took time and effort on my part. Chantal gave me, most of all, my power back. After each session (once a week at first then, every other week then monthly) I was given exercises to help me integrate the treatment. I still use some of them when I need a boost. Thank you Chantal for you patience and amazing insight! — Judith F., Meriden, CT.
Hi Chantal, I just want to tell you that I am amazed at the result of the IEM treatment. It has now been four days and i am still pain free and able to lift my right arm up. Yesterday, I was able to carry my grand son who is a big 9 month old angel. Thank you and see you next week. — Anne Mary Connor, Kona, HI
I have had many different treatment of Reiki, Theta Healing, Reconnection and massages for many years. It seems that sooner or later my symptoms would come back. With Integrative Energy Medicine I can say that Chantal "coached" me back to health. Her expertise and intuition is remarkable but she also give you exercises to do between sessions so your body doesn't go back into the old pattern but is coached to stay in harmony with the natural energy flow brought on by treatment.
After three month of IEM treatments I learn what worked for me and what doesn't, I learn to listen to my body. Now I can use some of the exercise if I feel that I am slipping back in the old pattern. Now I choose to have a tune up every other month to keep my body healthy. — Robert, Madison, CT.
I recommend Chantal for integrative energy medicine treatment for her expertise and open heart. She is a wealth of information I learn so much from her but also her compassion and open heart is felt every step of the way. Thanks.
— Carla, Southport, CT
Individual Family Constellation
I was astonished when you were able to detect aspects of the individuals in my mother's family and the dynamics that existed in their relationships....I found the experience to be fascinating and obviously very helpful in uncovering a piece of unfinished business for me. RC, West Heaven.
Drum Circle, PlayShops Drum Making Workshops.
I was pleased with the Drum Circle, our host Chantal was very gracious and made us feel at home. It was everything I expected and more. — George KH, Meetup
I have known Chantal for many years and I have taken her workshops. I come from the energy healing background myself so I have a great respect for her knowledge of different healing modalities. Chantal brigs all that into her workshops generously sharing her knowledge and her wisdom. She is organized, patient and caring. I only wish If had time to take advantage of more of her workshops.— Marialiisa Pettengill, Greenwhich, CT.
