What has brought you to this work?

Years ago I was constantly feeling sick and tired. Physically and emotionally. It was really difficult for me to just get through the day. One day I said "enough is enough" and decided to take a step towards a more holistic & natural approach to my health. I went to see a holistic practitioner (Iridology) for advice. It literally changed my life! I started to gain more energy, my focus & concentration improved, I lost weight, and my acne prone face cleared up. I began to share my experience with my family & friends and started to take formal courses in Nutrition and Iridology.

When I first started practicing Iridology & Nutritional Consulting it allowed me to help people understand what their "physical" issues are. But I have always felt that something was missing. I began to research energy healing and took courses in Therapeutic Touch, Jin Shin Acupressure and Reiki. Since I have been working with these modalities I feel that a whole new world has opened up to me. I learned how to help others & myself heal our bodies through their emotions. These subtle, yet powerful healing energies, can dig deeper and discover the "emotional blockages" are that are part of the physical ailment.

I continue to research and study the natural health field and have helped several people in the past 15 years make the change to better health. I focus on the root causes of conditions, integrating my holistic practices and nutritional guidance to promote healing and prevent disease. I am very dedicated to helping others to achieve optimal health and well-being. I feel very privileged to bring this gift of healing to clients.

What services do you offer and how do they assist others?

Jin Shin Acupressure
Refined over thousands of years, this eastern art employs light, gentle touch to stimulate the movement of energy in the body and release energy blockages. Jin Shin is also referred to "acupuncture without needles". It is a close relative to Qi Gong as it is based on the five element theory and the use of the meridian system. By placing the fingertips at two different meridian points at a time, the energy is pushed through the body to release blockages stored in the body that cause discomfort and ultimately, illness.

The body contains energy pathways that feed life into all cells. When one or more of these paths becomes blocked the damming effect can lead to discomfort, pain and if left unchecked, the manifestation of other more serious conditions. Benefits include: decreases pain, tension, anxiety, fatigue and stress; improves sleep; balances breathing; strengthens immune system; promotes clear mind; helps body heal itself; and can also heighten the effects of other healing modalities.
I am a master practitioner using the traditional Usui Japanese style of Reiki.

Reiki is a form of energy healing through the universal divine. Each healing is unique to the individual. Placing the hands at certain chakras on the body brings in vibrant Reiki energy healing to reduce stress and relax the body, which ultimately proves to be healing.

Depending on your body’s needs, I can also offer a unique blend of two ancient alternative health practices of Jin Shin Acupressure and Reiki to provide the optimum holistic energy healing.
Iridology & Nutritional Consulting
Iridology is performed by analyzing the iris (the coloured part of the eye) along with the sclera (the white of the eye). This is a non-invasive and painless procedure.

The iris is a very complex external structure of the human body. It is connected to every organ and tissue by way of the nervous system. The patterns of the fibers that make up the visible aspects of the iris are unique to each individual. Health conditions that develop over time can be analyzed by changes in the iris, sclera, and pupil. These changes are not only a function of genetics alone but also of the way a person eats, drinks, thinks and feels.

Iridology analysis isn’t only for people who have health concerns. Having a reading done can tell you things you are pre-disposed to as well as provide a base line for you to have for the future. Iridology is an invaluable and preventative tool for maintenance of health.

What philosophy do you live by?

I believe that each one of us deserves to be treated with love, kindness and respect. Effective listening, empathy and accountability are imperative in creating trustworthy and compassionate relationships. In this fast-paced world today, I feel it especially necessary for us to be more gentle with ourselves and others. Pray and meditate daily. Reach out and spread joy & laughter. "For it is truly in giving that we receive".

I’ve always felt an importance of living a life so as to leave the world a better place. Even a small contribution can make a huge difference. Helping family, friends and clients to achieve vitality, balance and well being is something I feel very privileged to offer.
