Meet the Internal Wisdom Team
Here at Internal Wisdom, we think of ourselves as a family. We see each other, support each other, and empower one another everyday. We also want to see and support YOU on your journey into wellness.
Rachael Dardano – Owner, Founder and Practitioner
Internal Wisdom founder, Rachael Dardano, is dedicated to teaching lifestyle management and wellness programs for individuals and corporations. 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, Rachael boasts a successful 18-year career in the clinical diagnostics industry. After years of struggling with chronic digestive issues—and eventually cancer— Rachael found her natural calling to integrative health when she discovered the benefits of colon hydrotherapy.
From there, Rachael was inspired to create Internal Wisdom to provide emotional and physical support combined with fully integrated Western and Eastern practices including a focus on the gut-heart-brain connection. Rachael provides an initial assessment of your overall health challenges and goals. She then customizes a program of therapeutic strategies designed to achieve those goals. It may consist of one or many treatments depending on your needs.

Jennifer Jackson – Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)/Tapping Specialist
Jennifer is a graduate from Yale University with a B.A. and M.A. in music. In her first career, Jennifer spent over twenty years teaching music to children in a variety of settings. Throughout life 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 intense insomnia, she found that energy healing was the only thing that worked. She explored
hypnotherapy, polarity therapy, and finally EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), where she found true resonance.
Her focus is on helping people release the subconscious blocks that keep unwanted issues locked in place.
