I experienced two illumination sessions with Rita and many follow-up conversations. Rita is an attentive listener and an astute observer. She offered me a pathway to healing through imagery, energy clearing, movement, sound and creating a new story through which to view myself and my life. She offered me hope and relief in re-wiring my thought patterns so that I could move forward in my life with less anxiety and more ease. Through her words, presence and guidance, she supported me in seeing a future in which I was living life to my fullest and, simply by being myself, helping others along the way. After two sessions, her words and guidance have stuck with me for many months and helped me to create a life with more lightness. I am grateful for her reassurance and confidence in the healing work she offers. It is a powerful gift to experience. She is a gentle power and those who are called to her work will be profoundly impacted. -SW
The illumination work was wonderful as it helped me to experience the burning away of my negative energies. Rita is wonderful. Walter P.
Thank you for putting me back together during our session. I went home rested and began to feel like my normal self. I also regained clarity in my thinking. I really appreciated the generosity of the long session. We will work together again soon. Valerie C. Nurse and Therapeutic Touch Practitioner
Working with Rita helped me get to the core of a key issue in my life in a surprisingly gentle manner. Her highly developed intuitive and energetic skills, together with her caring presence and skillful listening, guided me into an experience of palpable inner shifts that have powerfully impacted my external life.
It is wonderful to work with someone grounded in the massage therapy …very useful work!

I have received what I would consider awesome massages from several massage therapists, and Rita is certainly among those. As a MT, Rita seems intuitively to know the areas that most need work, even when I don't always realize there are knots are sore spots in those muscles before we begin. But what sets her apart from other M.T.'s whom I've gone to is the wonderful way she combines both massage and energy work. My massages with Rita help me clear and release toxins not only from my body, but from my mind, emotions, and spirit as well. I truly believe that working with Rita helps me to better accomplish my own good work in life, and I am so grateful to have found her! Lisa
After working with Rita, I decided to reclaim my voice and the ability to express myself. This has led to an increase of living my life by my own terms. Thankyou Rita!
I have known Rita for over 30 years and have been blessed to have her loving healing methods many times. Rita is an amazing woman, with great wisdom and gifts. I highly recommend Rita, to guide you through true transformation! Dr. Kate Keville
Rita Carnevale is a magnificent healer! I have had the privilege to experience numerous life altering sessions with her.
During one session, she helped me obtain a state of being completely grounded, which was absolute and unlike any I had ever experienced before. It provided extraordinary strength and security for me that still remains to this day!
Another time she performed an illumination of my chakras which brought tremendous understanding and awareness. This knowledge helps me gravitate to situations where life flows effortlessly and prevents me from repeating unhealthy patterns.
The most amazing session was following my father’s death. It had been several months since Dad had passed and I had experienced great difficulty after his passing. I had remained strong and silent but there was a deep sadness and a constant pain in my back. I believed Dad was in heaven and the funeral, gravestone and closing of his business were all handled as I felt he would have wanted but I still could not obtain the closure I desired. Rita executed a session in which she referred to as compassionate touch. I had an immediate intense release of grief. She facilitated communication with my inner child which enabled me to better comprehend my vulnerability and the back pain completely disappeared.
Rita has decades of healing experience and has helped hundreds of grateful individuals. She does not pass any judgement and can be trusted explicitly. Her expertise, desire to help and beautiful heart is second to none!
I have known Rita for many years, through her trance dance classes. She is open and accepting of all in her class, giving everyone (who chooses) a chance to express her or his perspective on what is going on. I have been to many “New Age” types of events, and I’ve seen the danger when a leader loses focus on what the goals should be. Rita always keeps a spiritual focus, while respecting boundaries (her own and those of the class members). She seems to embody the “contradictions” of strength with gentleness, artistic beauty with the practical, empowerment without giving away power, and spiritual with physical – qualities that are important to a dancer. I always feel high at the end of her classes. She is a gift. Larry
I have now received 3 Illuminations with Rita in the last 3 years because I enjoy them and their after-effects so much. When I work with her, I am fully able to give in to the healing work because of the open, non-judgemental space she provides. I feel safe to get honest with myself and release. Rita is spirit itself and spirit runs through her and pours out of her work! Every time I have received an Illumination, my life tends to take a monumental shift within the coming months- and it has always been for the good- one that gets me more aligned with my path and my true, highest self. Thank you, Rita!
