Professional Endorsements

We are fortunate to have very esteemed members of the professional medical community who have provided guidance and counsel throughout the development of our mind-body relaxation programs, as well as those that now recommend our programs to their patients.

Bernie Siegel, M.D.

“I am happy to endorse the Circle + Bloom™ program. Guided visualization and mind/body programs can be applied to fertility issues just as well as patients experiencing more serious health concerns.”

For many, Bernie needs no introduction. He has touched many lives all over our planet. Dr. Siegel, who prefers to be called Bernie, not Dr. Siegel, was born in Brooklyn, NY. He attended Colgate University and Cornell University Medical College. He holds membership in two scholastic honor societies, Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Omega Alpha and graduated with honors. His surgical training took place at Yale New Haven Hospital, West Haven Veteran’s Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. He retired from practice as an assistant clinical professor of surgery at Yale of general and pediatric surgery in 1989 to speak to patients and their caregivers.

In 1986 his first book, “Love, Medicine and Miracles,” was published. This event redirected his life. He is now very involved in humanizing medical education and making the medical profession aware of the mind/body connection.

Dr. Inna Berin, The Fertility Institute of New Jersey and New York

“I personally reviewed Circle + Bloom’s programs and I am very impressed with the content and quality. My practice, The Fertility Institute of New Jersey and New York, has incorporated the programs into our services. We believe that success in reproductive medicine requires an inseparable combination of technology and compassion, and successful fertility treatment must focus both on the scientific and human elements. The Circle + Bloom programs are a valuable added component of our fertility treatment services.”

Juliette Aiyana, L.Ac., Aiyana Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs

“Circle & Bloom is wildly popular with patients in my acupuncture office who are undergoing fertility treatment. Meditation and creative visualization are powerful tools of healing and relaxation. Once my patients hear the mediation during an acupuncture treatment they request it to be played during subsequent visits. Many of them purchase the downloads and tell me that they absolutely love using them at home on a regular basis. Circle & Bloom meditations offer patients another way to integrate body, mind and spirit in their journey toward welcoming a new spirit into their own bodies and lives.”

Dr. Josiane Caggiano

“I am completely convinced Circle + Bloom is a winner. The program is very insightful; very well done. Congratulations!”

Dr. Josiane Caggiano has been a practicing certified psychoanalyst and hypnotherapist for over 25 years. She frequently advocates the use of imagery, relaxation and hypnosis for a variety of symptoms. She lives and works in New York City. She can be reached at, or by telephone at 212-772-3256.

Dehan Chen, M.D., Valley Fertility Center

“I am happy to see mind-body science and innovative stress reduction exercises have been tailored for the fertility community. I am excited to incorporate Circle + Bloom’s programs in our practice.”

Dehan Chen, M.D., graduated from Harvard University receiving the Harvard College Scholar Award in 1989 and an A.B. degree in 1991. He received his medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1995. Dr. Chen completed his OB/GYN internship and residency at New York Presbyterian Hospital.
