What Clients Are Saying

Meredith has a very special gift; not only is she an amazing healer but she is loving and compassionate beyond words.I saw her for a reiki session after my father passed away from a long and hard battle with cancer. I knew I was in deep need of healing and had never had reiki before and wasn't sure what to expect. Meredith made me feel so comfortable and explained the process to me. As soon as she started working over me I could actually feel my energies shifting. I felt as if she was actually pulling away my hurt and negative emotions.I have also followed her advice on when to Sage and getting over an ex. Meredith is the real deal and I would highly suggest you working with her! - Meg. S Pennsylvania

I’ve been seeing Meredith on and off for years. Reiki with Meredith directly influences my performance inside and outside of the gym. I’m better able to focus and put the small stuff aside. This enables me to stay on track and listen to my body.We don’t emphasize the role that stress reduction and focus matters when it comes to our fitness goals. Meredith’s skill set is perfect for filling this gap. I highly recommend her.

I started unsure of what to expect, but left impressed and with greater appreciation for my own past. It started with Meredith asking me to sit down and to focus on a memory. I had to sift through several memories and selected one from years ago. I was asked to just focus on the memory itself, and within short order, Meredith began picking out details, increasingly finer and finer as the session progressed. Meredith honed in on substantive details, ranging from my prior actions, thoughts, emotions, and intentions. In total, we covered memories from my college years and my time abroad. The detail in which Meredith described what she was sensing from my memories was impressive, akin to a second set of eyes to what I felt and experienced.  Meredith displayed a knack for being able to pick out and describe some of the more complex and nuanced portions of my memories, and did so in a light hearted manner that naturally placed me at ease. Some details became clearer, coming into greater focus because Meredith picked up on them whereas I paid such details little heed when I would recall such memories. If you are seeking assistance in deriving some closure or insight from your past, you should contact Meredith.

I’ve been going to Meredith for Reiki sessions for several months.  Because of a medical condition I have peripheral neuropathy in my hands and feet, which was getting worse.  After just one Reiki session with Meredith, the neuropathy improved significantly.  It is now hardly noticeable.  I see her about every three weeks and find the healing sessions good not only for physical problems but also for relaxation and anti-stress.  Meredith has a real healing gift and I am so glad I found her!

I saw Meredith after coming back from Afghanistan. I had developed anxious responses to previously banal situations, such as crowds and even one on one interactions.  I has never tried hypnotherapy, but decided to give it a shot.  After my first session, I already felt much more relaxed and, more importantly, able to put my feelings into focus.  I haven’t felt as comfortable as I did after that session since getting back. If this peace of mind continues, then I owe Meredith a lot.

Meredith did my reading through the phone and she was simply amazing.  She mentioned my deceased father whom I dreamed about just a couple of days ago.  She also read about my home improvement plans, been thinking about it for weeks but never mentioned it to any body.  Talking about “higher vibrations”! She was also spot on about my main worry and the character description of my entire family. She was also very accurate about her description of my traits and and clarified things about my love life and finances. How can one be so gifted?  Her kind voice over the phone also made me feel comfortable.  Been to a couple of other readings before and they turned out to be quacks.  Meredith is for real and I’ve mentioned her to some friends already.  God bless and thank you, Meredith.  I will be doing the reiki and hypnotherapy sessions next.

Thanks a lot for the Quantum Energy session you did with me by phone yesterday.  It is a very strong gentle healing energy. You helped resolve some issues from past-lives and in my present life that I’ve been working on for years, and some I didn’t even know about. For instance when you were working on my throat area, I could feel the energy concentrating there.  You found a dark spot in the back of my neck which proved to be a psychic attack attachment from years ago, almost like a psychic knife.  You gently removed it — it had penetrated my auric field as well over time.  Beyond that, there were suggestions regarding diet and health, including cutting out eating late at night.  That’s a lot, a huge amount of focused directed energy on your part, and very insightful.

This was the first time I went to a medium. My overall purpose for going was pretty generic. When Meredith said bring questions I wanted to ask, I couldn’t come up with anything specific so I didn’t have anything specific with me when we met for my session. I was really trying to asses if I was on a good path in terms of taking care of other people in my life, decisions I was making about my life, nothing very specific. The session took on its own course. The things that were pressing on my mind seemed to be easily picked up and dealt with. But what really took my breath away was the incredible presence of my departed brother. He died almost 15 years ago.; In life he was one of my best friends, someone I could easily talk to about anything without being judged. He passed suddenly and unexpectedly. For me it was one of those events that shook me. I meant to call him the weekend before he passed, but for one reason or another did not, a regret that stayed with me all these years. So when Meredith said there was this spiritin her mind’s eye from the day before, persistent for me to get there on the day of the session, I had no idea it would be my brother. I wasn’t even thinking about him. The energy I felt with his presence was one of the most emotional and incredible feelings I have ever experienced.I still get the same feelings now when I think of him and as I had in the session. The things passed on to me from him were comforting for me and my sister-in-law. He wanted me to pass on a message to his family. Meredith sent a follow-up email to me after the session, providing additional information for one of my sisters. Nothing special about that, but what was significant to me was Meredith spelled my sister’s name correctly. I only mentioned my sisters real name once in the session, most people can’t pronounce it correctly much less get the spelling correct.Most people address my sister with her nickname.  It is a foreign name and not common in the least.  I was already impressed with Meredith’s abilities but the name spelling was just the icing on the cake. Overall the session was very positive and uplifting for me.

Meredith was extremely professional the duration of her reading. Having never had one before, I was surprised at how efficiently she explained the process and put me at ease, before delving right into the questions I had. She surprised me by bringing up contact with some relatives I had only heard of in family stories, upon checking up with my mother (who was very excited to hear about the contact) was amazed at all the support and love from family members I had only met when I was an infant. I was left with a gratifying sense of peace and direction, and of purpose after the reading. I feel thatby her connecting with my family, helped guide me at a very turbulent period in my life where I was looking for a finger pointed in the right direction. I would definitely do a reading again with this intuitive.

  I told Meredith nothing whatsoever about me beforehand and did not react to anything she said, so I didn’t give any cues at all, and she literally told me what was going on in my life to the specific level of where my aging mother’s physical weakness was.  She knew quite a bit about me, including things about my late husband and even referred me to someone else for further work.  It was uncanny, but perfectly natural at the same time.  She’s the real thing!

I saw Meredith after my ACDF surgery. After the first session, I felt lighter, like I had gotten a message on the inside. I am looking forward to several more visits.

I went being skeptical of psychics. I didn’t say anything really but my name. Meredith was beyond amazing. She is the real deal no doubt about it! I’m so glad I found her! If your looking for the real deal, don’t mess around, just go see her!!

You can’t top that.

Meredith came to my house in order to cleanse it before I started working from home on my new business. I knew there was some bad energy leftover from old relationships, and I needed a fresh start.She arrived right on time, and I got to spend an hour to myself while she rid my house of all the bad energy. She took care to cleanse me before I went in - and seal the front door of all bad energy.Her efforts have enabled me to spend time in rooms that I never wanted to use before, and have helped me create a happy home and home office.She is tremendously intuitive and focused and kind. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again!

When a person can zero in on something like she did, it just confirmed to me the power and insight she has in her readings.

My friend and I went to see Meredith to get some insight on family matters and just life in general, nothing specific.  She was able to accurately describe each member of my family to an amazing details. She’s very friendly and very positive. It was fun receiving an intuitive reading from her. She’s such a beautiful young lady and truly gifted. I highly recommend her.

I’ve seen Meredith for 2 different services, and she was very pleasant and friendly for both.  I originally went to her for pre natal hypnosis, I was really scared and nervous about delivering my first child, I had 2 sessions for that and she sent me home with recordings of our session to continue to listen to so I could only become more and more at ease.  While there were minor complications during my delivery, I remained absolutely calm rather than potentially hysterical, and I’m certain our sessions helped significantly!  The second service I’ve had with Meredith was not too long ago, I saw her for an intuitive reading to get guidance on where my life/family’s life was heading, there was a long patch of difficulties and meeting with her was a wonderful source of reassurance and prevented me from taking drastic actions to alter the course of our family.  There were several things she’d mentioned during my reading that have come true, and some of the things that came true, I had no way to influence them to become true.  I wouldn’t hesitate to send friends her way!

Meredith McDonough at Vital has made a believer out of me. I came to her for hypnosis because I was experiencing nearly a month of incessant muscle twitching in my eyelid and arm. My physician advised me that I was suffering from general stress, most likely due to work. (I do have a stressful job I guess but who doesn’t these days?) Anyhow - Dr’s advice was to “work out at the gym more often”, (gee thanks) and further advised that when it came to muscle twitching, there was no real medical diagnosis as to the cause, nor many treatment options available. To be fair, my own research confirmed what the Dr. said, so the treatment plan I got, was essentially “Be patient, it will go away on its own. Maybe.” I decided to try an alternative approach, and luckily found Meredith. After 3 sessions, I am no longer experiencing the muscle spasms, and I feel so much less stressed out. What she’s done is help me identify the root causes of the stress, and deal with it, head on. The results have been impressive. My family and friends have even commented on the positive change in the way I carry myself. The effects have spilled over in other positive ways, especially much more restful sleep.

Meredith also does readings and I went to see her to get some insight on my concerns with my daughter.  She got us set up for the reading and I was asked to say my daughter’s name 3 times.  Meredith closed her eyes and guessed/stated 1yr from her age and then she paused and then she mentioned her wrists.......this nailed it for me.  My daughter was having some stressful situations and had cut her wrists!

I had a wonderful Quantum Energy Healing by Meredith McDonough over the phone. She intuitively pinpointed every current and ancient issue in my body, gave them light and energy, and left me feeling amazing. Highly accurate, gentle, and transformative. Recommended! She knew where a missing tooth was, adhesions in my right shoulder from surgery when I was 5, etc. Astonishing! She was clear, gentle, efficient and professional. Medicine of the future, move over. This is the way!
— Linda, OH
Meredith’s reading was personal and professional. Her insight into the challenges in my life was amazing and extremely helpful. During my reading Meredith gave me several suggestions to help me see my goals come to fruition and they have been spot on. In the course of a few days my outlook has improved and I have seen myself come more into balance with my hopes and dreams. At this moment I feel anything is attainable and things that were once out of reach seem possible again. I thank Meredith for her compassionate words of wisdom. I would definitely recommend seeking Meredith’s guidance to anyone who is dealing with personal struggles or those wrestling with dramatic changes in their life!
