My first ‘client’ was my mother. She suffered from chronic back pain.
Even as a kid, while I massaged her bad back with homemade herbal oils (made by dad) I felt a glow of gratification.
Years later in Chicago, out of curiosity, I signed up for a class on reflexology. It was during this course that I first experienced the power of touch and how it can transport you to higher consciousness. I knew then, that this was my calling.
I followed up with a course in Aromatherapy and then went from learning about herbal oils to massage. I studied CranioSacral therapy through the Upledger Institute and took classes in various other massage techniques like Prenatal massage, Muscle release®, Quantum touch®.
And then, I came upon another major life-changer - Pranic Healing - an energy healing modality like no other.
While I was adding to my toolbox of healing skills I was also practicing.
Life rewarded me with the wonderful opportunity of working at The Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA both as an Ayurvedic spa therapist and a Pranic healer. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. Shelia Patel at the Mind Body Medical Group, I practiced healing therapies on clients from all over the country.
While at The Center, I also certified as a teacher, both in Primordial Sound Meditation and Perfect Health – Ayurvedic Lifestyle.
Effectively using my experience of over 12 years, I combine various techniques into a synergistic plan of wellness, individualized for each client.
Most describe my therapeutic sessions as nurturing, focused and revitalizing. As music and rhythm have a profound effect on me, I integrate rhythmic work into my therapies.
In addition to bodywork and energy therapies, I am a huge proponent of education. While my treatments will ignite the healing process, it is up to each of you to maintain your wellbeing through lifestyle practices. I offer therapy as well as classes, workshops, and individual sessions to support you in living the most harmonious and radiant version of your life.
“My mission is to help those who are eager to participate in their own healing process, find their balance. “
My journey as a healer had an unusual beginning - it began with my dog.
In 2003, my pet developed epilepsy. Western medicine had its limits, so I sought out other methods of healing. In high school, through an interest in martial arts. I became interested in chi and energy and this led to my taking classes offered by Master Stephen Co. I became a Pranic Healer.
Later that year, I went on to take classes with Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui, the founder of Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga.
I began working on my dog with my newfound expertise. The epilepsy the started to get better and the episodes became extremely rare until they stopped. Till today animal healing is very close to my heart.
By 2004, I was a firm believer in energy healing and I decided to study Quantum Touch -I was privileged to study under Richard Gordon, the founder. I was amazed at how by using just energy the technique could move bone and relieve my father’s arthritic pain quickly.
Seeing how these energy therapies initiated healing and transformation in my family members, I started to take on clients and, through practice, was able to bring healing and positive energy into their lives.
I continued to learn and experiment. I learned Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and was able to blend Pranic Healing and NLP at the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, under the direction of Dr. Deepak Chopra.
During this time, I began to perfect a process that merged these two therapies in a complimentary way that creates a powerful synergy for healing the mind and body.
There was a point in my life when I found myself in a doctor’s office overweight at 200 lbs, overworked and on the verge of being put on prescription meds. But Pranic Healing pulled me back from the edge and showed me how to take control of my life in a radiant and positive way. Six months later and fifty pounds lighter I was the healthiest I had ever been.
So, this long journey of learning and healing has led me to a time and place where I would like to empower to take charge of your own healing, become an active participant in your own wellness, craft your own lifestyle practices and unlock your Radiant Prana.
