Three questions with Catherine Polisi Jones, founder of NAAD CENTER.

Why did you start your business?

I opened NAAD CENTER as a service to our local community to provide an alternative to allopathic medicine and to teach individuals various ways to self-heal using ancient healing techniques and tools.

NAAD was a natural evolution of my transformation that occurred after I began meditating and studying Kundalini Yoga Meditation, which I now teach at NAAD CENTER each Tuesday 9:30-10:45 am. After much introspection and personal work, I realized that one of my primary purposes here on Earth is to help others learn these ancient techniques so that they can be empowered to listen to their bodies and intuition for guidance in life and health and be the source of their transformation to feel fulfilled, energetically balanced and excited about life.

NAAD CENTER is a therapeutic healing center based in North Stamford that offers ancient holistic therapies, practices, and modalities that have been used for thousands of years to bring the body, mind, and soul back into balance and the ideal healing state. Our collective of practitioners believes the medicine of tomorrow is energy medicine and your body can heal itself when fully empowered and informed.

Our healing practitioners are leaders in their respective fields and work in service to teach our local community to self-heal physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and energetic ailments and be empowered to listen more carefully to their intuitive voice. Using different forms of meditation, breathwork (pranayama), movement, and intuitive and energy therapies, we work collaboratively with clients to bring their bodies back into balance and resonance so that they not only feel their best but also are more connected with others and their experience of daily life around them.
