A Holistic Health Practitioner with an active practice since 1994, I have a fascination with the human body….and the way in which the mind, body and spirit work together when we’re realizing optimal health, and/or experiencing dis-ease. I have a strong belief that a natural and holistic approach to wellness is essential, not only for ourselves but for our animal friends and the earth that we live upon. Vitality and good health IS your natural state of being.
We are not just our bodies nor just our minds, if one is off balance the other is likely affected … and both should be addressed as we journey towards wellness and through this life. We are all built differently…let’s celebrate that!
Stress, Strain and dis-ease affect each person’s physical and emotional condition differently and that can change day to day. This is why, at the beginning of a session, I ask some questions about how you are doing, that day, how you’re feeling physically and emotionally. You may come to me with a symptom of pain or nausea, a feeling of sadness or a diagnosis of disease…my interest lies in not just the symptom or the diagnosis, nor the body part that is hurting…but moreso in how all of these things are impacting upon you, the whole person.
These questions provide the answers to which of my skills and expertise, along with a healthy dose of intuition, would be the best for your session. In this way we can put together a self-care plan to address what you, the whole person, is needing in the way of assistance, towards realizing your natural state of good health. I do not work in opposition to nor as a replacement for your doctors medical care.
My goal is to help you to realize and maintain a state of Wellness…and not to have you continually having to return for sessions (outside of maintenance).
Let’s work together!
