“Not a day has passed since I began the Menla program in October 2006 that I have not reflected on and benefited from my experience with Menla. I write this letter in gratitude for the teachings, and to encourage anyone contemplating enrolling in this fine program to do so.
I have worked as a Family Nurse practitioner since 1991 in a variety of settings. In the last 17 years I have experienced the changes that our Healthcare system has undergone, found myself longing to be renewed in ways that usual Continuing Medical education programs were not providing. I found a gap between my professional practice and my inner life, needing to be reconciled. I saw increasing stress levels in myself, my co-workers and my patients that inspired me to enroll in the Menla programs.
I recommend the program highly to anyone in the healthcare field, or caregivers of those in need. Despite the eleven hour one way drive to Avon Connecticut, I fully intend to take part in the Menla Level II training when they occur.

— Barbara Weaner, APRN

People are talking about Malou. What are they saying? Read to find out!

I began seeing Malou one and a half years ago to treat my scleroderma. Due to this disease I’ve had wounds on my arms, legs and hands that wouldn’t heal for seven and half years.  During that time, I have been going to a wound clinic every week to have my wounds debrided and dressed.

I was referred to Malou and decided to try the ONDAMED approach. After several treatments with the ONDAMED machine, some of my wounds have started healing for the first time in years which has been quite exciting.

The wound doctor and nurse at the wound care center witnessed that a couple of wounds closed where Malou treated them and they were shocked. The doctor saw where a couple were healing and he was fascinated by the improvement having witnessed my slow healing process.   A wound on my elbow closed up after three to four treatments with the ONDAMED.

I have a neuropathy in my feet and legs for several years now which burns and tightens those areas making it extremely difficult to walk.  It is also so painful that it keeps me up at night.  After a few treatments with the ONDAMED the tightening, burning and pain have begun to dissipate and I was able to take a half mile walk for the first time in months.

This disease effects my health in so many areas but Malou has me feeling better in general. I feel less flu-like, have less stress and experience less pain. The treatment calms down my whole nervous system so that my body has a chance to reboot so I can handle all my medical challenges.

Malou is so comforting and caring. She has the kind of disposition where just being in her presence is very calming. Getting that kind of support is wonderful. She’s also very knowledgeable and is constantly learning to expand her knowledge. This combined with her clinical experience and being a very loving human being makes her an excellent healer.

I’ve had this disease for 42 years and I’ve tried many approaches to treat it. It’s amazing to have something for such an extended period of time and then to see Malou and to have a noninvasive treatment work so quickly.  I look forward to my sessions with Malou and consistently feel re-energized and less stressed at the end of the session.

— Carol M.

My wife Carol has been suffering with scleroderma for 40 years. Over the past nearly eight years, she  has been treated for chronic, non-healing, various ulcers on her lower legs and feet. She has also developed vascular insufficiency ulcers affecting her hands and elbows.

Carol has been seen continuously in wound clinics during the past seven plus years on a weekly basis. Her wounds have improved, but not healed.

Since she began seeing Malou (who has treated her with the use of ONDAMED) Carol has had significant improvement in several of her wounds and has essentially healed a number of them. Clearly, Malou has had a beneficial effect on Carol’s condition.

As I have been present at each of Carol’s several hundred wound clinic appointments, I can testify to the success of Malou’s approach.

I started suffering from anxiety when I was ten years old. I played soccer and every time I had a game, I would get nervous to the point where I couldn’t eat or drink and would throw up. I experienced the same problem when I had the opportunity to do exciting things, like go on vacation or even a trip to the zoo. Over time, my nerves got worse, to the point that my nervousness became who I was. I would be sick for several hours before every new event. If I was on vacation, I was nervous the whole time. It was a very hard time for me. My anxiety was holding me back from being able to enjoy life. I started to see Malou when I was 14 years old and started to improve immediately. The sessions were relaxing and I enjoyed going every week. After a few months I noticed that I felt calmer throughout the week and I was getting less anxious and sick for each big event. Now during sports, my performance has improved and I am able to have fun. I still get nervous but it is a healthy nervousness. Overall, I feel calmer and more grounded even when I am dealing with stressful things, like sports or tests. I am thankful for the help that Malou has given me so that I can be happier in my life.

I started Ondamed treatments to keep an autoimmune condition in remission.  My symptoms included extremely low energy, depression, lack of joy, along with a low white blood cell count.  I experienced frightening muscle freezes and cramping.  These muscle freezes sometimes happened when I was driving and more frequently at night.  I would be unable to relax, to ‘unfreeze’ the constricting spasm.  When I was driving, I would pull over to the side of the road, waiting until the muscle finally relaxed.  It was painful and scary.  I was fortunate enough to find Ondamed just when I realized I was in real danger of manifesting a rheumatoid auto immune condition.

Within two sessions, I enjoyed a boost in energy.  And it wasn’t isolated to just the immediate time of the treatment.  I started walking again every morning as I did before the auto immune disease started.

I am in weekly treatments for Ondamed, and love my sessions.  I have not had a muscle spasm since starting treatment.  My white blood cell count is improved, but it is too early to know yet if the condition is in total remission.

I love Ondamed, it is a pleasure to get the treatment, and I am committed to healing and enjoying maximum health.  This is a wonderful and enjoyable modality, and I hope others can find the relief I have been so blessed to receive.  Malou has a wonderful, healing energy, and I love our weekly sessions and appreciate her intuition.

My experience with Ondamed started 8 months ago, when by happenstance I met Malou at a friend’s home over tea and she explained Ondamed as an energy therapy that stimulated the connection between right and left brain. I recently had received a diagnosis for my 13-year-old son of Non-Verbal Learning Disability — a weakness in understanding non-verbal communication and facial expressions. This led to significant anxiety (social and general) in middle school which needed medical treatment.

My son has generally had weekly treatments over this time frame and has made amazing progress in the ability to control anxious feelings, and it has helped his sleep pattern. I felt confident enough in the effectiveness to be able to recommend this to another parent who is raising anxious teens and wanting to avoid medications.

What this means in practical terms is that my son got on an airplane for the first time in 4 years, and felt confident enough to attend a political rally in a large crowd – things that would have been impossible a year ago. He has been able to transition from a small private middle school to Hall High School this fall, and I am sure that only happened in part because of this therapy and Malou.

As a scientifically trained Internal Medicine physician in practice 23 years, I look for the scientific/ medical/ cellular explanation on how this works. I understand Porges’ poly-vagal theory behind anxiety and depression, and the intersection with the autonomic and vagal nervous system, and have seen my own medical patients respond to forms of energy medicine such as transcranial magnetic therapy at Hartford Hospital. My medical students are learning about mindfulness and meditation in their curriculum, and this is incorporated into Ondamed. I personally tried this treatment to see what if feels like and I can only describe it as a “brain massage” or reboot.

For sure, other opportunities to improve the vagal tone through energy exist at Menla Holistic Health, including the Tibetan Vibrational Bowls, which I have also tried this year and find to be energizing and calming.

“I’ve had a wonderful experience as a client of Malou’s. I’m 56 years old and have been seeing Malou for the past year for counseling. Prior to that, I had been going to different counselors off and on since my mid 20’s. I had just returned to Connecticut from a 2-month long vacation in California last March 2012, and I was completely exhausted, mentally and physically. All I could think was, I’ve got to see Malou. I had met her briefly about 6 years ago during an evening program offered by St. Francis Hospital. She led a guided meditation for the second half of the program, from which I came home feeling completely energized and clear-minded. I walked into my home office that evening and efficiently processed through a few piles of paperwork that had built up over several months, which I previously had been unable to make decisions on. I wanted to see Malou after that, but at that point in my life, I felt too timid to call and make an appointment with her. So, when I came home from California last year feeling depleted, I did a google search and found her name and number.

Within a few months of seeing Malou, I felt like for the first time in a counseling relationship that I was actually healing. I had some long-held traumatic experiences and beliefs (which turned out to be misperceptions) from childhood that still plagued me even though I had been through many years of therapy with other counselors. Malou’s peaceful demeanor combined with her deep listening, kindness and compassion allowed me to open up. She recognized and acknowledged I was suffering, and that was what I needed to start healing. Malou is also extremely adept at guided meditation and her use of it during my counseling sessions has been so helpful in fully feeling whatever I’d been hanging onto, and then it naturally cleared away. I’m seeing changes and growth in myself since I’ve been a client of Malou’s. I laugh more, life is much funnier. I can feel my instinctual promptings more, instead of my scared mind telling me what to do. I don’t ruminate about the past as much; sometimes I’m actually in the present moment. I don’t feel bursts of anger or aggression in traffic or difficult situations as often; there’s just not as much to get mad about. I’m growing from the inside out. I have more compassion and love for myself and others.”

“Malou has assisted me greatly in bringing together all aspects of my life into harmony and success while keeping sight of the importance of maintaining a spiritual perspective. Her instructions are sometimes subtle yet have brought about noticeable improvements to my inner and outer world. I recommend Malou for those interested in a range of topics including spiritual, health, career and effectively serving others in alignment with ones own gifts and talents.

— Daniel K.

“Malou is the most accomplished clairvoyant/healer and intuitive counselor that I have had the good fortune to know. I have personally benefited from her healing abilities and intuitive consultations over the years and with Malou’s guidance I have been able to get to the core origins underlying many of my own issues/limitations and bring them into the light of awareness, where they have dissipated and vanished ie healed. I have also been honored to study healing with Malou for over 15 years, and work together to bring healing to our clients. The depth of understanding of the root cause of our various individual suffering and the skillful means with which Malou applies that understanding continues to amaze me and so I continue to benefit, learn and work with her.

Malou is also the most skilled teacher and practitioner that I know with the Ondamed machine. The Ondamed technology is the most sophisticated Pulse Electro/Magnetic Field { PEMF} therapy device in the biofeedback/medical market place today, and is used by many doctors in the USA and Europe. This technology is very effective for a wide range of physical disorders. Malou offers her expertise with this powerful tool combined with her own proficient healing abilities during her in-office sessions, depending upon the needs of each individual client, with no additional charge. I have also personally benefitted from Malou’s skillful use of the Ondamed machine to eliminate inflammation and muscle pain and correct specific nutritional imbalances.”

— Tom A.

“My experience with Malou was both transformational and stabilizing. I gained a more objective understanding of my emotional states, which helped me to learn to regulate my responses so I could more productively work with painful emotional experiences both present and past. Malou’s gentle and supportive style created an open and trusting environment in which I was able to explore life’s challenges with a heart of compassion and openness. Malou brings a wide range of tools into the therapeutic process, creating an individualized plan and approach, which we created together. Since working with Malou, I have experienced improvement in all aspects of my life – my relationships with my family and co-workers, my overall sense of peace and well-being ,my spiritual practice, etc. I have worked with a variety of therapists over the past 20 years, and I have never before experienced such rapid and sustained results.”

William Work, M.D., of California, and his dedicated staff incorporated ONDAMED® into their practice at the end of 2009. Since then, they have continued to implement this type of treatment with much success. They documented one such case involving a patient with Myasthenia Gravis, an autoimmune disorder affecting muscle strength and movement. They reveal the results of their study below.

In a case study performed by William Work, M.D., and his staff, they discovered that by using the ONDAMED Biofeedback System, a patient made a full recovery from Myasthenia Gravis symptoms.

The patient initially came to his office complaining of severe muscle weakness throughout her entire body, marked facial muscle deterioration on the right side, including a drooping eyelid, loss of facial expression on right side, extreme fatigue, trouble sleeping, incontinence, and equilibrium/balance issues. The patient was extremely fatigued during the daytime and would be unable to get her rest at night, and was also falling down frequently. Her symptoms were affecting her daily life and her quality of life.

By her fifth therapy session, she was sleeping more soundly. By her second month of intervention, or eighth session, she had achieved six full hours of undisturbed sleep and was no longer napping during the daytime. Around this time, her energy levels improved, as did her outlook on life. She was transforming into a happier person.

After 17 full sessions with ONDAMED, she achieved 100% mobility in her face and now walks around symptom free and has a much improved quality of life. After 3 years, the patient is still reporting same results with monthly maintenance sessions.

While traditional medicine offers much in the clinical sense, it lacks the valuable healing effects of the psyche. Biofeedback combined with focused field stimulation provides the answer for many patients suffering from chronic symptoms of pain, inflammation and a generalized decreased quality of life. The patient’s immune system is altered and strengthened, lymphatic flow is improved and even body tissues are positively affected, including soft tissue, cartilage and bone.

ONDAMED may be the answer for patients suffering from Myasthenia Gravis, giving them their life back, one therapy at a time.



I am a 68 year old female who was diagnosed with both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis about 12 years ago…I have had both of my knees replaced and have lived with chronic pain, fatigue, anxiety and depression from many years.  I did not sleep well and would often need to take breaks at a stressful full time job to rest in order to get through the day.

I began seeing Malou Dusyn about 2 years ago for weekly treatments with her Ondamed machine.  It merely involved me relaxing in a stressless chair for an hour and listening to restful music as the machine analyzed the weak areas of my body and worked at helping to strengthen me in many ways.

After a fairly short time, I was sleeping better and had more energy to get through my day.  I also was able to be more active which helped my chronic pain and in general made me feel more “normal”.  Of course there are challenges to being an older person with pain issues and physical limitations but I feel I am much more able to deal with them on a daily basis because of my work with Malou.  I would love to say that I am a health nut and eat only what is good for me and lost weight etc etc…but really I am just a regular person who has faced difficulties that have been helped by my experience with Ondamed.

My anxiety and sleep problems are greatly lessened, I feel less depressed and more able to face the challenge of the day with energy and optimism.  I do feel strongly that I had been in a pretty dark place after my last knee surgery and today I am able to move through my day without a cloud of doom over my head or the fatigue that could sometimes feel crippling.  Thank you Malou and Ondamed.

— Sandy M.


Being 70 years old now, I have had treatments with the Ondamed apparatus for about the last four years, and every time I did receive one, I experienced renewed energy, better sleep and less anxiety throughout my work day.

The significant healing I received from the Ondamed treatments occurred after I visited an ENT doctor for voice hoarseness in November, 2012. I had been suffering from this condition ever since I had surgery in 2004 for Zankor Diverticulitum; in short a herniated eusophagus. Apparently, the larynx was irritated during the surgery and I hadn’t fully recovered from that irritation.

The November, 2012 visit to the ENT specialist revealed that I had three polyps on my larynx. This was discovered and recorded by a television scope placed on the end of a thin wire and inserted through one of my nostrils down into the area of the larynx. The doctor played back the recording several times so that I could actually see the presence of the polyps. As a result, the ENT specialist wanted to see me in another three months to keep an eye on the polyps to insure that they would not enlarge. If so, a biopsy would have to be taken to determine whether the polyps might be cancerous or need to be removed.

After Ondamed treatments for next three months, I returned to the ENT specialist for my scheduled appointment. He again inserted the TV scope through my nostril into my throat to view the larynx. After he paused for several minutes, and fearing the worst, I asked him whether the polyps became enlarged since my last visit. He replied “They’re gone!” He had no explanation for it. I told him about the Ondamed treatments I received, and he could only reply to “just keep on doing what you’ve been doing.”

The before and after recordings of my larynx are very telling. One shows the definite presence of the polyps that prevented the larynx from completely closing during speech, and the other shows a completely clear larynx free of any obstructions.

Needless to say, I am very thankful for the healing that Ondamed has to offer.
