Jeri Lavigne

Jeri LaVigne, PhD, Ed.D.

Jeri LaVigne, PhD, Ed.D. has been working in the Atlanta area for more than 25 years helping children and adults reach their goals and dreams by teaching them how to better process information. Once people understand how they process or do not process the vital information that they have to take in and understand, Jeri works with them to fill in the gaps and help them acquire that information and process it more fully. Poor communication skills, disagreements and misunderstandings can be a source of anger and distance, while effective communication can be a springboard to stronger relationships and a happier future. Effective communication happens when we understand the six unique patterns of perception. Each one determines how an individual with that pattern absorbs, organizes, remembers and expresses information. Sound and vibration also play important roles in how we communicate. The sound or vibration of our thoughts is amplified in our words and we want to be clear about the energy and vibration we send out to others.

Presentation: Sound and the Brain

Two areas that are negatively affected by stress and other factors, (environmental and biological), are memory and the ability to focus our attention efficiently. This presentation explains how to neutralize those negative influences and strengthen both memory and focus in all areas. By better understanding  how the brain creates and store memories, we can better access stored information. Also, the greater the flow of energy to and from areas of the brain, the better our ability to concentrate and pay attention appropriately. By using Cyma therapy, acupressure and aromatherapy, participants will be able to assist clients in developing better memory skills and greater focused attention.

Assist your client in restoring the pathways of focus, memory and concentration. Learn the pressure points for the brain coupled with the right sound to aid in memory retention and mental clarity.

As a CymaTherapist she uses the AMI750 (Acoustic Meridian Intelligence) & AMI 1000 to deliver sound and vibration to clients. Lynn uses the BioMat from Richway which delivers a far-infrared treatment to the whole body and provides the negative ions needed for restoring the proper pH balance. Lynn also uses Access Consciousness to bring clients into greater awareness of the subconscious thought patterns they have been using that create discord in their lives. And as a Medical Intuitive through the use of the BEAM Technique, Lynn dives into each system of the client’s body and listens.  The body will tell her problems it desires to have fixed and Lynn pulls that frequency through her body into the client’s body, thus catalyzing a change!.   Lynn is an Accredited CE Provider for the NCBTMB, (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork), and most of her classes give Massage Therapists CE credits in the US.   She is a member of the following organizations: ISTA, International Sound Therapy Association; ABMP, Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals; Holistic Chamber of Commerce; and owner of the for all of your Vibrational Therapy needs!!!

Presentation: Calming the Nervous System with Tuning Forks

What if the nervous system was KING? What if you tuned the nervous system like the strings of a violin and the rest of the body functions re-booted and began to move into harmony as well? What if you could start this change with a simple tuning fork? We are going to look at the nervous system in such a different way, a way to tune it so that if you have back and neck problems, a shoulder higher than the other, twisted hips, migraines, TMJ, and even mental fogginess that it all goes away in less than 10 minutes. How does it get any better than that? We will look at a set of tuning forks that open up the cerebral spinal pump and resets the head perpendicular to the body relieving it of many stressors. The procedure is easy and painless and any one can learn to do it. Make Tuning Forks a part of your 21st Century First Aid Kit!
