There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than
any other two-letter word, and that is

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? 

We call UP our friends. And we use it to br ighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car. At other times the little word has real special meaning. People stir UPtrouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special. 

And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP. We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.

We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP! To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions. If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more. When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP

When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP

When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP.

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now my time is UP, so... time to shut UP... 


The Initial Consultation – 1st hour - EAV Testing (computerized health testing protocol) 2nd hour - Holistic Consultation plus Energy Treatment

Vanesssa Meginnis, University Student, St. Catharines

I came to Celebrate Wellness in March 2012, after being sick for over 15 months. I was constantly tired/drowsy, had horrible allergies, my skin was very spotted and dry and I could not concentrate in school. Barbara, using a computerized health testing protocol sourced the root of my problems - the doctors had never found. She came up with pathways to fix my problems. I then had a session with Cyrus who, with an amazing energy treatment and a personalized Bach Flower remedy, helped me relieve stress. He showed me how to relax my mind from exam stress and other aspects in my life. I now feel absolutely amazing and everything has improved tremendously. I am back to competitive sports. I can concentrate on my studies and my skin looks and feels healthy. Thank you so much Barbare and Cyrus! You've really made a change in my life! Stepping through those doors of your clinic was the best decision i ever made.

Gail Kasprick Senior, St. Catharines

I can say that the experience of the products and services offered by Cyrus and Barbara at Celebrate Wellness has been truly excellent. Their care and dedication to my wellbeing has been just fabulous. Cyrus’ workshops and educational evenings are amazing and in a class of their own. I know that I am, just like all the others who walk in feeling unhealthy in body and mind and leave feeling like: “I’ve got my life back!” Thank you both very much. I wish you ever increasing success.


EAV Testing (Computerized Health Testing)

Jane W, Welland, ON

Just wanted to thank-you for the products I purchased from Celebrate Wellness, and your knowledgeable advice on the cold sore virus.

I had suffered for many years from cold sores. When I was under stress or when I would bite my lip these horrible and painful sores would become very prominent. I had tried many other products that were on the market only to have them become larger.

After you did the EAV Testing, you recommended taking a herbal remedy internally as well as topically on my lips. I have not had a cold sore for over a year.  The healing process began when I took the herbal remedy twice daily, and put the Olive Leaf Intrinsic  on throughout the day. 

Smaller sores did develop at the time but were very minor and only lasted a couple of days then they disappeared.  As for the larger sore, it did not become nearly as large as it normally would. I believe the smaller sores were a result of the remedies bringing the virus out of my system. I stayed on the product for a month and finished the product until it was gone. I have been cold sore free since!

Doris Roy, Welland, ON

Thanks to Barb....I am finally CELEBRATING WELLNESS. I have my life back. For almost 10 years, I suffered from headaches. Then I was introduced to Barb. That was the best day of my life. Her infectious smile and kind mannerism were a joy to work with. Her dedication to her patients is truly amazing. I can honestly say that placing my life in her hands was such a great feeling. The information that was provided by her EAV Testing helped me to put my body back on track. Her knowledge and helpful ways were what I needed to get me onto the path of health. I can sincerely say, that I wake up every day with a smile on my face knowing that I no longer suffer from pain because of her. Thank you Barb!!!


EAV Testing (a computerized health testing protocol) iMRS PEMF Beds (Pulsating Electromagnetic Fields) Energy Treatment

Bernadette Cove, St. Catharines

My first exposure to “Celebrate Wellness” was a miracle.  I was new to the city and had suffered a serious eye condition that prevented my eye glands from draining.  Having gone them medical route, including surgery, it did not resolve the condition and actually made it worse.

When I was introduced to the services of Barb DaSilva, I was sold on the fact that she would find a way to help me.  Her EAV testing showed many other problems that I was exhibiting in various body systems and promptly started me on a draining and detoxification program.  With the help of the iMRS beds’ Pulsating Electromagnetic Therapy and Energy Healing, it prompted healing and helped to remove obstacles to allow further recovery.  My eye condition healed after a short time and I began to see a vast improvement in my overall health.

Barb DaSilva has a very compassionate and caring attitude with her patients and is readily available to offer support and answer questions and concerns about your health.  She has helped me open up a whole new way of approaching a natural and holistic lifestyle.  I have radically improved my eating habits, increased my exercising and incorporated more natural beauty products for my skin and hair.

Ms. DaSilva’s skills as a Holistic Health Practitioner are amazing and I would highly recommend her to everyone who desires to improve their life and increase their potential.

I am truly blessed to have found her and have her in my life.


iMRS PEMF beds (Electromagnetic Pulsating Fields)


Hi Barb! I thought I should give you an update on everything since it's further testimony to the PEMF mat.

I had my mastectomy on Monday afternoon and I was given a PCA which is Patient Controlled Analgesic. this is a device that lets me push a button to get a dose of morphine.

I had seen the anesthesiologist the day before and he said that I would have quite a bit of pain after the surgery. When I woke up in the late afternoon, I felt really groggy and I vomited several times, but I had NO PAIN.

I thought maybe it would come later, but no. I recovered so quickly that they stopped my IV's on Tuesday afternoon. I was on a saline / glucose blend which is just for hydration and I was given 3 bags of antibiotic throughout Monday and Tuesday morning.

By Tuesday morning, I felt completely normal. They had put me on a liquid diet to keep me from getting sick, so on Monday night, I was given clear soup, juce and water. I had two spoonfuls of the soup and I got sick.

By Tuesday morning, I felt completely normal and hungry. I was given a "liquid diet" breakfast of porridge, tea and juice. An hour after that I was starving. The nurse got the guy from the kitchen to come and see me and he made some suggestions, including a hamburger and fries. I had that and it was sooooo good.

I was supposed to stay in the hospital until Thursday but on Wednesday morning, the surgeon came to see me and he said I could go home, that there was no reason for me to stay in the hospital.

I had two drains in that had to be removed yesterday. I went back to the surgeon for him to remove the drains and when he checked and re-dressed my incision, he said that the incision is already healed.

He said that it should take two weeks to recover, but I'm already getting more movement in my arm. What I had was a modified radical mastectomy which means that part of the pectorals muscle is removed along with the breast and some lymph nodes. I had 11 lymph nodes removed and tested, and 5 showed cancer in them.

Everything is out now and I should be clear forever, I will need to go for 4 weekly sessions of Taxol and one year of Herceptin, every three weeks.

I am certain that the PEMF mat has been my key to such a quick recovery. I haven't used it since I've been home because of the drains, but I'll start back on it today.

If you have any questions, please feel free.


April Brown

My name is April I am 20 years old, and was diagnosed with Rheumatoid  Arthritis at the tender age of 11. One day I woke up and as I went to stand I immediately fell over. The best way I can describe the feeling is having stones or rocks in every joint in my toes. It was so painful. Since then I have been on and off of SO many different medications such as: Diclofinact, Naproxan, Prednisone, Humaira, Enbrel, Orencia, Methotraxate, and the list just goes on. All of these medicines were supposed to be the miracle. I was waiting for.

I was constantly sick, my immune system was so low I was advised not to even be in the public. I had to wear a mask during cold and flu season if I did go somewhere there was going to be lots of people. My weight was all over the place, I was loosing my hair, my nails stopped growing. Things were just not looking up for me. I was starting to get really discouraged and felt as though this is just how my life is going to be and I need to suck it up. Every time I would go to my specialist they would just say ..Be happy your not in a wheel chair, maybe you should start saving up for one.

Around March of 2011 I decided this is just not the way I want to live my life, I mean eventually I want to have kids! As I started making those little changes everything just fell into place. I met the most amazing holistic healing practitioner Barb from Celebrate Wellness, who has helped me SO much I could not even begin to explain. I will forever be in debt to her. She introduced me to the IMRS mat which has changed my life! I feel closer and closer to being healthier every time I use it. There has been so many times where I would literally crawl into her office from all the pain almost in tears, have a session on the IMRS mat and confidently walk out of there and get into my car as if I had never been in pain.

Since using this intelligent wellness mat I am proud to say that I am off all of my medication, and have gone from getting IV injections once a week and taking 10 pills a day to simply just laying down plugging in and relaxing! I have not had any medication since the beginning of March 2011 and I am 100% confident that I will never need them again. Being able to wake up and not have to remember which pills you have to take next is the best feeling in the world. Words can just not say how much love and gratitude I feel for being able to use such an amazing technology.

I want to thank EVERYONE involved in this amazing company, you have truly changed my life.

Follow up testimonial

After using the iMRS for about 4 months I am proud to say that I have little to almost no pain, and all my joints are healing.  In the first week of February I had an ultrasound on my joints and the results have proven that the iMRS has most definitely assisted in my process of healing and recovering from Rheumatoid Arthritis. About a year prior to this ultrasound I had another one and I had A LOT of damage and erosion in my joints and cartilage was missing from the fluid eating away at it. This time when I got the results my cartilage and erosions had been completely healed.

I will continue to use the iMRS everyday as it is now part of my daily routine. I highly recommend this as a MUST for everyone. I truly never thought I would ever be here now, completely pain free and a year of absolutely NO medicine. I am excited to see where I will be after a few more months of using this technology more and more.

My experience with Cyrus in this Advanced ReikiTECH workshop has been amazing, very powerful and has brought me to a point where dissolving blockages will be making my life great.

Kate Hay

Amazing. I have a sense that my relationship with the universe has changed, deepened, forever. I know my life is forever enriched by this course and Cyrus’ teaching.

Ruth Hay

The ReikiTECH Advanced Workshop has been a wonderful experience. We have been given tools (many) to enhance our Reiki journey in treating ourselves and others. Cyrus works from his heart and practices what he teaches. I feel I am very blessed to have had this opportunity, and will promote these ReikiTECH workshops to others. Thank you once again. God Bless.

Jimi Russell

I have a greater understanding and sense of myself and my energies. This workshop will profoundly enrich and better my life from this day forward.

Gail Kasprick

I thank you Cyrus for sharing your knowledge and wisdom. I could listen to you forever and ever. I feel a feeling hard to explain. A sense of peace and enrichment and a new direction in my life. I will enjoy this daily and share where possible. Thank you. Much love.

Lisa Ellis

I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed from this experience this time. I need some time to feel it, experience what I’ve learned and felt. I loved the teaching methods and I certainly have been telling everyone I know about Cyrus’s great wonderful energy! Thank you.

V. Anne Caswell

First thought: This is real. Time well spent for personal growth. Exceptional. Thank you.

Barbara DaSilva

Thank you for restoring the “truth” of what Reiki is by developing and delivering ReikiTECH in the Niagara Region. The advance workshop was very powerful, the amplified energy is felt immediately and the sense of “being” becomes a natural state. Cyrus, you are transforming the inner environment of others one person at a time. Things will only go UP from here. Thank you.

(Roll your mouse over the word UP in the previous testimonial and read what Cyrus presented at the start of one the weekly CAPE sessions where he generally starts with a joke or two. Laugh and enjoy!)


The ReikiTECH Workshop

Laura Garneau

This experience was truly life changing for me. It was one of such personal growth - but in actuality, just the beginning. I learned so much knowledge, wisdom, while being completely inspired at the soul level. I loved the group experience. Thank you so much.

Karen Campbell

Wonderful! :) Lots of new things to practice. Looking forward to moving forward to learning as much as my body and brain will take.

Linda Campbell

Very exhilarating workshop. I'm looking forward to the next level as I will return for the next one. I experienced very high energy levels.

Annette Hemerik

First of all, I would like to thank Barbara and Cyrus for facilitating this 2 day workshop. This workshop has certainly opened my mind and thoughts about the deeper inner feeling of frustration, pain, integrity and soul. It has been a very positive experience. I know I still will have a long way to go, to battle my inner demons, but Cyrus and Barb you have showed me the first step. I like to finish with a beautiful song by James Taylor. “This is the first day of the rest of my life.”

Jennifer Hampson/Smith, Stay at Home Mother

This entire weekend was incredible. Everything about the 2 days including evenings were outstanding. Thank you Cyrus! Barbara, I’m looking forward to attending Level 2.

Larry Colangelo, Banker

POWERFUL STUFF! Reawakening of things that were always there, but brought forward consciously through energy within me. Thank you Cyrus.

Lucy Colangelo, Entrepreneur

This experience has connected me to me. I feel my own energy more intensely and understand its power, strength and possibility. I am full of gratitude.

Helena Wilkinson, RN

Very professional and knowledgeable. Reinforced my knowledge of Reiki. The most time I spent concentrating on myself with good results and a profound attitude of gratitude and love. Thank you.

Kate Hay, Lawyer

I had the feeling throughout, no, the overwhelming knowledge that I was in exactly the right place at exactly the right time. I strangely feel that I learned a lot that I have always known. Thank you.

Sherry Towers, Manager Finance

I had no previous knowledge of ReikiTECH before coming to this workshop. I found the experience to be excellent. I intend to continue to practice the self treatment and try to live with an attitude of gratitude!

Chuck Ellis

Cyrus has perfected a gift to those on a journey for self awareness, intent and gratitude. He will demonstrate the harmony between self and the limitless possibilities of universal energy. Thank you!

Barbara DaSilva, Canadian, Holistic Practitioner, Owner, Celebrate Wellness, St. Catharines, Ontario

More valuable for my well being than I ever imagined. Finally a teacher who explains “Energy” and teaches with clarity, authenticity and love.

Jimi Russell Canadian, GM

My life will be forever changed for the better. I will appreciate my life and future with more love & gratitude.

Lyse Moreau Canadian, Business Owner

I have surpassed anything I have ever experienced. I thank you for all you have given.

Sharon Sibley Canadian, Sales/Receptionist

I am grateful for the workshop and the lessons I have learned over the 2 days. As always resistance is not the way. Allowing & being is truly the only way to self-awareness. Please write a book. The universe is in need of healing.

Marlea Russell Canadian, Yoga Teacher

This was for me a beautiful gift. I learned different things than in my other Reiki course & both were beneficial. However, I just want to make this perfectly clear. My past drawer had Hope, my present or my Now is with Wow! Namaste.

Ruth Hay Canadian, Retired RN

I am so grateful that I was directed to your Reiki workshop. Although I have been practicing Reiki on myself almost daily, but not always for the length of time that would give me the most benefit. Your teachings have really reinforced my need to do more self treating on a daily basis. I liked very much your approach. Your passion shows through and is so helpful to those like myself who still have questions & like encouragement. Thank you so much.
