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 Technique®,
And then, I came upon another major life-changer - Pranic Healing - an energy healing modality like no other. I took classes with Master Co and other senior Pranic Healing instructors in both healing as well as spirituality. I continued to practice both bodywork and energy healing in both my private practice as well as other places of employment. I also had the opportunity of teaching at massage schools. Out of service to the community, we offered free Pranic Healing at our healing clinics in the Chicagoland area.
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 and overseas.
While at The Center, I also certified as a teacher, both in Primordial Sound Meditation and Perfect Health – Ayurvedic Lifestyle. This has rewarded me the opportunity of hosting the Chopra Health Retreat at Civana, Carefree, AZ.
Through the course of over 25 years, I have learned to effectively combine various techniques into a synergistic plan of wellness, individualized for each client.
Most describe my therapeutic sessions as nurturing, focused and revitalizing.
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.
Recently, I developed an interest in Dolores Cannon’s work and in QHHT. Dolores has had an amazing personal journey. She has 40 years’ professional experience as a hypnotherapist and has authored 17 books, covering everything from history to the metaphysical. I found myself relating to her belief that our mind is the most powerful thing there is and we have the capacity to make the change we wish to experience, including healing the body.
After many hours of watching her YouTube videos, I was intrigued by what she was accomplishing and signed up to study and practice QHHT (completed level 2 certification which involved more than 25 practical sessions). My previous experiences as an energy practitioner and my years at the Chopra Center opened my eyes to
how profound this work really is.
I look forward to using these therapies to helping you journey within, find answers and realize your full potential.
“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. Animal healing is still very close to my heart today.
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 the technique could move bone using only energy 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 Deepak Chopra Center for Wellbeing.
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 over fifty pounds lighter,
I was the healthiest I had ever been.
This long journey of learning and healing has led me to a time and place where I would like to empower you 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.
