The desire, alone, to transform anything within us is powerful—always leading to a heightened awareness of ourselves, our relation to others and our connection with the natural world around us. In my own life, I can glance back and view the abundant beauty woven throughout various challenges that I have faced. Collectively, I now recognize and embrace them as my greatest teachers. They have consistently pushed me to search for answers and, in doing so, I am always in the process of reaching further, of being able to both accept and offer more. My trust and understanding is that we all will further recognize the beauty in hindsight and continually grow to love and appreciate the challenging moments that will carry us to an even more amazing being.
How we live (our thoughts, spiritual presence, state of mind, energetic being) and how we eat is as important as, if not more than, what we eat. Consistently choosing nourishing, organically grown, mineral-intense, nutrient-rich, fresh, whole foods, does play an important role, however, in creating and sustaining a functionally balanced mind, body and spirit.
collective conscious expression
It goes by many names. Some call it applied kinesiology. Others call it muscle reflex, truth or bio-energetic testing. I like to call it “collective conscious expression” because, essentially, it is the physical expression, through an instrument, of what the innate or universal intelligence that is interwoven into and a part of everything already knows. While there have been plenty of inquisitive and interpretive challenges along the way, this technique is one of the most interesting to me—and is the foundation to several energy balancing methods and healing science systems; including Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique and Network Chiropractic.
This practice is a valuable tool to assess which nutrients a person is lacking in their diet and which foods may be stirring up a reactive response. It offers us a foundation to begin making dietary changes that will help support better physiological balance.
I love working with plants. Each plant has its own unique nutritional offerings and signature energetic imprint, which blend with our own to help support subtle shifts and foundational healing. Herbal infusions are nature’s multi-vitamin. They are packed with nutrients and are easily accepted and assimilated into our bodies. As part of a colorful medicine bag, these balancing infusions are powerful and I enjoy sharing them with others.
—somatic & bio-energetic balance—
A focus on both structural and vibrational harmony is important for whole-being balance.
Somatic awareness is essential when it comes to understanding and working with the innate intelligence of our bodies. Whether it’s accessing the wisdom in a headache, surrendering to a stretch of full, deep, consciously guided breaths or trusting the directive feelings that emanate from our core; learning to “hear” what our bodies are offering and then making changes through touch and mindful movement allows for more fluid and restorative function.
Energy, or vibrational, healing is the practice of balancing energy fields within and surrounding the body and removing stress and blocks to the flow of this field. We are all an assembly of energy. When the energy body is out of balance, the distraction carries over to the physical body. Likewise, when the energy body is aligned and balanced, the physical body becomes more balanced and can better handle various forms of stress and repair.
I like to weave in various techniques, including B.E.S.T., craniosacral-focused therapy and lymphatic drainage. I love to attend workshops and to learn about different body/energy balancing techniques. Much of my work, however, is very innately guided.
My intuitively and spiritually led, hands-on healing journey began in 2002, when a feline friend developed a condition that a local vet claimed he wouldn’t survive. It was interesting timing, as I was already processing through a handful of other weighty life events. I felt lost and crucially hopeful for guidance outside of the allopathic community. One late, stormy night, I walked down to a pond near our home. I collapsed on the ground and began to weep. I had no idea, really, who I was talking with—who I was asking guidance from, but I knew that I wasn’t alone; and I knew that I was fully surrendered and open to whatever came next. The days and weeks that followed repeatedly leave me without words—yet, the foundation of what I took away from this stretch is that there are no limits to what is possible.
Heat has a powerful ability to relax the body and to help surrender material that is no longer in a person’s best interest—both physically and emotionally. For its healing and regenerative support, due to its deep-penetrating infrared heat, negative ions and amethyst and tourmaline crystals, all body/healing work takes place on a BioMat.
There is much power behind intent, alone. We’re always in the process of creating our lives through what we give focus to. Through a better understanding of universal laws, we’ll travel beyond programmed thinking to give focus to creating good health, and both individual and global change.
Interwoven into all of the above is the “larger picture” purpose to remind us of our true nature and abilities; to remind us of what we are connected to and how to remove obstacles to fully accessing and loving this connection in a way that will allow healing—on all levels.
Each of us is coming through with a one-of-a-kind, individually tailored purpose and plan. Many people walk into a healing space and want/expect to receive some sort of hands-on treatment—all good and well. I enjoy (and find effective) many healing modalities, yet the deepest, most sustaining well-being is simply wrapped up in our own unique, self-guided journey. Through this continually unfolding flow of living and learning, we are always in the magical process of transforming from an already brilliant being to an even more aware, more brilliant version of this same being.
….We are all healers in our own ways. Whether it’s through kind words, a warm smile or touch, good thoughts and intentions; we all have an innate ability to shift our energy—and the energy of others….
