Healing the holistic way: Sweet Sue-renity center opens in Rockland
From the outside, the office building at 437 Webster St. in Rockland looks like any other. But inside there are spiritual figurines, pictures of angels, incense burning and candles shining, along with the sounds of meditation.
Near the entrance, the Chinese symbols for harmony, luck, peace and love are painted on the wall.
Sweet Sue-renity Holistic Center officially opened Sunday, and business owner and spiritual healer Suzanne Adduci of Rockland said she is optimistic about the future of her new center.
“I’ve had a lot of positive response,” Adduci said. “People are very happy that I'm in Rockland. If I'm blessed enough that this takes off, well I’ll wait and see what the universe has in store for me.”
So far, Adduci has employed two teachers and is hiring yoga and Zumba instructors.
Despite a spiritual nature, Adduci said the holistic center is not linked to any religion, and everyone is welcome.
Adduci teaches the art of Reiki, a Japanese technique that reduces stress by having a healer lay hands on, or above, the recipient, moving an unseen energy force through the hands into the body.
“Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of a spiritual healing and self improvement that everyone can use,” Adduci said. “It can be used in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. I believe that everyone has the ability to heal themselves and I wanted to provide a safe place for people to come and receive the tools necessary and go on their own spiritual journeys.”
Adduci said she was trained at Finding Inner Peace in Abington in 1999. And although she has had a job in Hingham for the past 24 years, she felt something was missing in her life.
“I couldn’t put my finger on it, but I knew what it was the first time I took a Reiki class,” she said. “Because Reiki is love, and with love all things are possible. It opens up your ear to receive what the universe wants you to have, and the universe wants everyone to be happy. It’s there for the asking. I truly believe there’s no such thing as hopeless, only helpless. Some people just don’t know they have the ability to be well.”
She also offers another form of Reiki — Kundalini — which use healing from the earth or the heavens.
Adduci also teaches one-hour Mindful Monday Meditation classes and offers “ear candling,” which uses linen cones and wax to draw obstructions from the ear passages.
Integrated energy therapy uses a higher, specialized vibration of Reiki to attune to higher powers, and uses different power points allowing a heart-link to the angels.
There is also spiritual drumming and Zumba dancing, which is similar to salsa dancing. There are also belly dancing and yoga classes.
And although they are not a definite yet, Adduci said her center may offer Tarot reading and runes stones readings, which use stones with symbols to do readings bases on how the participant selects them.
Adduci said she hopes her center will offer a place to receive healing and growth.
“If there are enough healers out there helping, it will change the vibrations of the earth so it will be around for many generations of children to come,” she said. “Right now the world isn’t in a good place financially and spiritually, and I want to be one of the people who makes a difference in someone’s life.”
