"Maggie Sergio was my surgery coach when I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have surgery. She was a complete God send. She helped me in essential ways: researched a diet to help me strengthen my body for surgery, provided me with meditation exercises and a meditation session to get ready for surgery, and counseled me weekly or as often as I needed it deconstructing my fears; always showing me kindness and love at the scariest time in my life. Maggie has a true calling for this type of work with a heart of gold, always keeping the timeline and what needs to get done at each step of the way to surgery or treatment and then to wellness post-surgery. I enthusiastically recommend her services. She is a fantastic surgery coach, who will help you when you need it the most." - Lisa R. Novato, CA
"The Visual Imagery Program: Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster, was offered to me by the Aurora BayCare Medical Center, Green Bay, WI.
Approximately one week before I had surgery, I received, on loan, the book by Peggy Huddleston and the accompanying relaxation and healing CD.
I also had the good fortune to do a one hour, by phone, workshop on the book with Maggie Sergio. This workshop helped me immensely. I was able to learn how to visualize positive outcomes, how to ask my family and friends to surround me with positive energy, and most important, I learned to create healing statements that helped me focus on the treatment's healing agent to aid in my recovery. I felt that I was mentally prepared and relaxed."

The phone workshop I did with Maggie shortly before my heart surgery was invaluable. Based on her training with Peggy Huddleston, Maggie inspired me to feel that I could truly take an active part in my own healing. With the help of my healing circle beforehand, I felt wonderfully calm and peaceful as I entered into the experience. The surgery went very well, there was minimal pain afterwards, and my recovery continues to go very smoothly.
One aspect I really appreciated was the way Maggie expertly guided me in visualizing different stages of healing. She brought in all the senses so that I could really feel myself in the healing situations I imagined. She helped me be specific about what I said, saw, smelled, heard, felt. Now, when taking my healing walks in my neighborhood, for instance, I can continue to open my senses and get in touch that positive energy.
Maggie is a deep and compassionate listener. I felt completely supported by her positive energy and confidence. I wholeheartedly recommend working with Maggie if you feel in need of loving and wise guidance in any challenging situation.
