WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO HER
"Being Creative and using my knowledge and experience over the last 26 years of working in the health care field, I have become somewhat of an expert on pain both acute and chronic. I take a wholistic approach and work using a fusion of techniques and blending my knowledge of both eastern and western traditions."
"People often ask me why I don't train other practitioners to do what I do, and to be honest, it is impossible. As an Acupuncturist, Shiatsu Therapist, Therapeutic Laser Therapist, Meditation Teacher and a counselor, I draw on all of my training and knowledge to help people. You can't box that and sell it."
"My mission is to support people who seek to explore and rediscover their true selves, and to support peoples journey to better health. My focus is on finding hidden patterns, making connections and finding solutions to create better health and well being."
