Rachael Dardano – Owner and Practitioner
Internal Wisdom Hydration and Wellness Center’s founder, Rachael Dardano, is a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners Association and a Certified Colon Hydrotherapist graduate from the International School of Colon Hydrotherapy. She had a successful career for over 18 years in the clinical diagnostics industry before entering into her natural calling of integrative health. She is dedicated to teaching lifestyle management for individuals as well as bring wellness programs to the corporate level.
Rachael graduated from the University of Phoenix in 1996 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration after doing her basic classes for nursing. After years of her own suffering with gastrointestinal health issues, and recognizing the increased need for intestinal health support in the community, she focused on creating a comfortable, stress free environment that bridged the gap between allopathic and traditional practices in support of the whole person.
Her own health journey began in childhood. She suffered with constipation and severe allergies her entire life. With a history of childhood sexual trauma that was suppressed for years, her health continued to decline in her early twenties with weight gain and body aches. After the birth of her three daughters, including twins, her body and spirit depleted, creating the opportunity for cancer to manifest at the age of 32. This caused her to nearly bleed to death from a hemorrhage. She survived the hysterectomy, but the constipation, weight gain, allergies and itching from eczema increased and manifested into a miserable life. As director of a large blood bank at the time, she had emotional difficulty as well as memory and word issues. Remembering names and simple words were increasingly challenging. Thankfully, she was introduced to cleansing through colon hydrotherapy. During her cleansing journey, she lost over 45 pounds in 2007 through gut repair work, nutritional supplementation and stress management techniques and is now cancer free.
Rachael was inspired to create a center where emotional and physical supportive methods are combined and fully integrated with Western and Eastern practices. With that, Internal Wisdom was born in 2010 in Fair Oaks, California. It was quickly realized that the vision was bigger than that location and was therefore relocated to Folsom, California, where Internal Wisdom has been since 2013.
Rachael works with men and women looking to powerfully take charge of their health. Overwhelmed and exhausted, most of her clients find they are unable to manage the stress of daily life. Rachael works with your healthcare provider to support your digestive care, rebuild a healthy gut, and ultimately make the connection that our emotions and food affect our overall health. Through careful listening and powerful self-guided insight, our programs support people to become empowered to create a thriving, healthy lifestyle. She also conducts seminars and workshops in addition to individual sessions.
Internal Wisdom is a “wellness sanctuary,” where mind, body, and spirit are equally supported; a place where the intuitive nature of each person is cultivated for innate healing. Internal Wisdom exemplifies a strong commitment to the support of each person and a goal to help every client get the best of life.

Jennifer Jackson – Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)/Tapping Specialist
Jennifer graduated from Yale University with a B.A. and M.A. in Music and spent over twenty years teaching music to children in a variety of settings. Throughout this time she cycled in and out of debilitating periods of chronic insomnia, and was always looking for the magic cure.
In 2011, following a particularly stressful period in her life coupled with some of the most intense insomnia she had ever experienced, she found energy healing, which changed her life forever. She quickly became certified in hypnotherapy, polarity therapy, and finally EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), where she found her true calling. She has since opened a mind-body healing practice focused on helping people release the subconscious blocks that keep unwanted issues locked in place. While she enjoys working with a variety of clients, she specializes in helping insomniacs regain healthy sleeping patterns and has developed the Beyond Insomnia Program — the program she yearned to have during her own struggles with sleep.
Jennifer still loves teaching and speaking to crowds and regularly presents talks on how to end insomnia without sleeping pills to the community. Last year she spoke at a regional conference of EFT practitioners and is working with her mentor on becoming an official EFT trainer, where she will train others to become certified practitioners.
Outside of her practice Jennifer enjoys singing, dancing, playing the piano, and community theater. She has done the musical direction for several shows at Imagination Theater in Placerville, and she and her husband love performing in shows together. She is very excited about joining the Internal Wisdom Team and looks forward to working with many new and interesting people.
