About Ellen Lewinberg


Ellen Lewinberg | Bioenergy Therapist, Cancer Touch Therapist, Instructor

Bioenergy Therapist
– an alternative therapy

Prior to becoming a Bioenergy therapist, Ellen worked for 30 years as a psychoanalyst. During this time, she studied EMDR, EFT and Reiki, and occasionally used the techniques in her practice.

Ellen has always been interested in energy healing and a health crisis in 2002 gave her the impetus to study alternative approaches to dis-eases and Bioenergy therapy more intensively. Between 2003 and 2012, she studied with Jeannette McCollough, Bill Bengston, Judith Schutz, Zoran Hochstatter, Bradford Keeney, Joan Beattie, Kurt Peterson, Mbali Creazzo and others. She introduced bioenergy techniques to her psychoanalytic clients and found the clients improved significantly, to the extent that they could then end their therapy.

In 2010, Ellen closed her psychoanalytic practice in order to devote herself full time to energy healing. Although the work Ellen does today is a reflection of her studies, she also feels that because each client is unique, they contributed immeasurably to her learning. The alternative techniques she uses now are tailored to the needs of each client, based upon her formal learning and her clinical experience. Every person has a unique life journey and each person needs to be treated differently.

Ellen has treated such diverse dis-eases as arthritis, liver problems, heart issues and depression. She specializes in working with individuals with cancer. Ellen has found that her work can lead an individual to transition to better functioning in their lives and improved physical, mental and spiritual health. Sometimes the work leads to a gradual and peaceful end to a person’s time here. She has received many letters from families of patients about the value of her work during their loved ones transition.

Ellen offers, individual, group and remote Bioenergy therapy for all types of conditions and for the recuperation from chemotherapy and radiation. She also runs Bioenergy clinics once a month and teaches Bioenergy Therapy at workshops around the world.
