"I have learned that when energy work is combined with body work, the efficacy is very profound. My first training was a mentorship with a Jaine monk from Bombay India in 1973. Shanti taught me Shiatsu, Reflexology, lymphatic drainage and the basics of Chinese medicine: eg. listening to the pulses, balancing jitsu and kyo energy, and assessing the qualities and quantities of the elemental energies of fire, air, water, earth and wood. In 1973, this was at the forefront of the awareness of the wholistic approach to healing in the United States and I feel very fortunate to have been in the very beginnings of that movement.
As my experience accumulated, I learned Swedish, Touch For Health, Polarity and other modalities. I am continually learning and studying, currently pursuing a certification course in Visionary CranioSacral Work. I have achieved level four and plan to continue through the seven levels to certification. In recent years, I am also offering PEMFT (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy).
Fascinated with lasers since high school, I was delighted to learn that modern technology had developed the laser for healing purposes and jumped into the training in 2004. The use of low level lasers has now been approved by the FDA for wound healing after surgery and scar tissue reduction. In the years that I have been using LLLT, I have seen the combination of the laser with energy work produce results that were akin to miraculous. Wound healing is accelerated, pain evaporates and sprains have healed in two days instead of the expected six weeks.
I am fascinated with the body's ability to self heal when given the necessary building blocks and the right triggers. And I am honored to have been led to this path of learning the different tools and triggers to help our body, mind, spirit to heal."
