I am Denise Orzeck, living in Orange County, New York. Growing up in Pine Island, NY, also known as “Black Dirt Country”, I come from many generations of farmers. It was here that my philosophy of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and nutritional interconnectedness was cultivated. Being raised among the fields of fresh produce and black earth with a strong intuition for sensing others personal traumas and internal blocks since childhood, I have sought out alternative methods of healing using natural and spiritual resources in unison. Through my personal experience and application of my discoveries I found my true path and, so, my journey began.
My passion and intrinsic desire to heal and provide peace to the lost and wounded was self-actualized early in life as I was the sole caregiver of my ailing father. Always wanting to touch and lay hands to heal, it was at this time that I truly started applying nutritional and holistic methods to his care. After his passing, I took a position as a Certified Nurse Assistant and spent over 30 years in the health care industry while integrating holistic techniques, lifestyle modifications, and nutrition with a hands-on approach to attune the mind, body, and soul. I am a Licensed Practical Nurse with a career focused in Alzheimer’s and rehabilitation. It is through the process of rehabilitation that I saw the profound role nutrition, spiritual guidance, mental strength and emotional determination play in physical recovery. It was then that I began my intense study of healing the “self” through “oneness”.
I was naturally led to Young Living Essential Oils upon delving deeper into my quest to further understand and apply alternative methods of care and healing. For a decade I have used them to support my own and my family’s body systems. Throughout this experience I felt a connection to my higher power and was driven to become ordained as a Holistic Minister Practitioner. To this day I continue to use the oils in my holistic practices: medicinal remedies, therapeutic techniques, organic nutritional guidelines, and as an herbalist and aroma-therapist.
Now having amassed the knowledge and provided optimal care for the mind, body and spirit of countless lives originally plagued by mental and physical disorders and defects, it is my mission to teach and provide others with my personal and professional experience as a holistic minister, practitioner, and master instructor.
Tim began his Chi Kung training in 2009 and never looked back since his first class. He wasn’t quite sure how to explain how things changed that day but he knew he felt great and needed to continue to explore this curious practice. Throughout his journey he was consistently mystified by the seemingly impossible and amazing things that he learned. He had no choice but to constantly expand his ideas of what was possible and redefine ways to use this knowledge. To his delight and honor, his teacher (Gary McCabe) recognized his passion and took him on as an inside student in order to pass the most profound information of his lineage.
Tim began to show friends and family this art and nearly all of them noticed the benefits and commented on how great they felt after practicing. The next time he saw them he would ask if they are continuing to do the things he showed them on their own. Of those that replied that they haven’t, the number one reason was they didn’t have time. Recognizing that time was the thing that held the most people back, Tim began focusing on developing a system that uses easy to learn, short, and simple techniques and concepts that can be incorporated into a modern daily lifestyle.
He is known for saying “Everything you accomplished to date is because you put your mind to it. You can do the same with health and wellbeing”
Tim currently resides in Northern New Jersey and continues to train with his teacher on a regular basis. He loves music, sunsets, and the wonders of nature and energy. He is dedicated and passionate about sharing his knowledge and thrives to show people how to improve their health and well-being in ways they may have never thought of.
