BiographyIn 1999, Stephanie and Buck Grizzel were in fear of losing their 3 year old daughter Hayley to anaphylactic attacks which left her gasping for breath. Hayley’s attacks were brought on by a severe allergic reaction to citric acid. Citric acid is a common ingredient found in most foods and is very difficult to avoid. Those were difficult days for the family because they had been warned by the doctor that Hayley’s next attack could be fatal.
As a precaution, the Grizzels had a sign posted in Hayley’s pre-school classroom stating the food items she could not eat. Thankfully, someone saw that sign and was thoughtful enough to tell Stephanie about a clinic in Sarasota, Florida which specializes in severe allergies along with other ailments. That thoughtful person was Yasmini Castillo and that clinic was the Grizzels’ answer to prayer in the form of Dr. Marita Kufe’s BodyTalk Clinic.
In just three treatments, Hayley was no longer allergic to citric acid, and was eating everything she wanted with no ill effects. In a subsequent visit to the clinic, Hayley’s older brother, Geoffrey, was pleased to get relief from his constant sneezing due to environmental allergies.
The Grizzels’ successful visit to the BodyTalk Clinic resulted in many Caymanians heading north to Sarasota in search of this unique muscle testing and ‘tapping’ healing technique. All returned with great results.
Stephanie felt it extremely important to bring this knowledge to Cayman because of the large number of people she knew with various illnesses who would stand to benefit from this simple, non-invasive technique. Stephanie herself became certified as a BodyTalk Practitioner in 2002.
After her certification, Stephanie became the independent owner of Cayman BodyTalk Services which has now become Empyrean. In her practice, Stephanie has worked with clients suffering from a variety of ailments including food and environmental allergies, sinus problems, migraines, chronic fatigue and stress related illnesses, menstrual irregularities, lymphatic drainage, parasites, scarring, thyroid disorders, fibromylalgia, digestive disorders, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, injuries, multiple chemical sensitivity, infections, learning disorders, panic and anxiety attacks, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, vertigo, toxicity, emotional disorders, arthritis, cancer, auto immune disorders (fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis and lupus) along with many genetic diseases. Hayley is now 23 years old and has completed her bachelors in biomedical science, with a goal to become a medical doctor and a certified bodytalk practitioner!
