I'm Dr. Peter Gagliardo, PhD, and I'm thrilled to share a bit about myself with you.

For over 15 years, I've been immersed in the world of holistic health, weaving together various modalities like holistic life counseling and education. My passion for this work stems from a deep-seated calling, not just a career choice. Armed with a PhD in holistic health from the esteemed University of Sedona, I stay at the forefront of advancements, blending cutting-edge research with time-tested holistic principles.

Experience and Qualifications

Proudly named the 2023 Holistic Hypnotist of the Year, I bring not only years of hands-on experience but also recognition from my peers and the wider holistic health community. My approach sets me apart – I don't just address surface-level symptoms; I dig into the underlying causes of your concerns. By melding modern research with ancient wisdom, I ensure that the care you receive is both innovative and firmly rooted in proven methodologies.


I'm Sara Gagliardo, LMT, Polarity Therapist

My Story

Believing in body, mind, and spirit interconnectedness, I approach each session with a holistic perspective. My treatments are not just about relieving physical tension but about creating a harmonious balance that rejuvenates the whole person. With a passion for holistic wellness and a dedication to client-centered therapy, I bring a unique blend of expertise and empathy to every session.


  • Deep Tissue Massage: Focused technique for releasing chronic muscle tension and knots.

  • Swedish Massage: A therapy technique that's designed to relax the entire body.

  • Polarity Therapy: A unique modality focusing on balancing the body's energy flow.

I am committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment where clients can unwind and embark on a journey of healing and self-discovery. Every session is a step towards a more balanced and vibrant life.

Holistic Life Coaching


We recognize that each of our clients is unique, bringing diverse experiences, skills, and strengths to their wellness journey.

Our approach focuses on working with you to cultivate your natural resources and develop new skills to help you find sustainable solutions to your challenges.

To ensure accessibility, we offer flexible appointment scheduling, including daytime hours, evenings, weekends, and limited school-based appointments. Our goal is to provide a safe and comfortable space for our clients to engage in the transformative process of holistic life counseling.



We understand the importance of maintaining balance in all aspects of our lives. When we lose our sense of centering and harmony, we may feel off-balance, perform poorly, and experience a depletion of our natural strengths and energy. That's why we're proud to offer a range of interventions that focus on rebalancing and strengthening the natural energy and resources within you.


Our interventions address the underlying causes of imbalance, promoting lasting change and empowering our clients to live more fulfilling life.



We offer hypnotherapy as a powerful tool to help you tap into your inner resources and facilitate positive life changes. Hypnosis is a therapeutic technique that induces deep relaxation, and the mind becomes more receptive to suggestions.

Our skilled hypnotherapists work with clients to identify areas of concern and develop personalized scripts tailored to their unique needs. Hypnosis can help clients overcome limiting beliefs, reduce stress and anxiety, manage pain, and improve overall well-being. Whether you seek to overcome a specific issue or enhance your personal growth, we invite you to explore the benefits of hypnotherapy with us.

Holistic Training and Education


We provide ongoing consultation services to individuals, agencies, and other entities seeking guidance, support, or feedback on various topics, such as service delivery, program implementation, and becoming Certified in Hypnotherapy, Reiki, and other integrative wellness programs.


Our consultation services are highly customizable, and we work closely with our clients to identify their specific needs and goals. We also incorporate integrative team members to ensure a comprehensive and collaborative approach.

Our training programs are designed to incorporate the latest evidence-based practices and support a client-centered, strength-based model. We offer onsite and off-site training options, which can be customized and tailored to meet the unique needs of any individual, program, or agency.

What is the purpose of the free 20-minute exploration session?

What is your cancellation policy?

  • Life can be unpredictable. I offer a cancellation policy that requires 48 hours' notice. This allows us the opportunity to reschedule and ensures that the session time can be offered to another client if you can't make it.
