Because everyone’s wellness journey is unique, my mission is to provide support for wellness in all dimensions of ourselves - mind, body and spirit. Therapeutic Massage, Reiki, Aromatherapy, Sound therapy and Spiritual coaching are some of the ways I can assist you on your wellness journey.
I am a Highly Sensitive Person. I was born this way. It wasn’t until well into adulthood, two hospitalizations and a diagnosis of Major Depressive Disorder, that I found an understanding of why I was different than most. While therapy helped me to realize that this is who I am and to develop some healthy life skills, the energetic portion of the equation was not recognized by western medicine. So to learn energetic healing and life skills, I went on a spiritual quest. I found reiki, meditation, aromatherapy and sound therapy. Now I bring this knowledge to you, to help you heal interdimensionally - mind, body and spirit.
I am there to assist your body to receive what it needs to heal. My intention for every session is that whatever needs to happen comes forward for your highest good. Just for clarification, what is for our highest good is not always pleasant. Sometimes what comes forward is difficult but necessary for our journey. I am there to hold space for your journey.
I am a healer, but not in the sense that I can heal you. I am a healer in that I can bring all the knowledge that I have to help you heal yourself.
I believe that healing happens on a quantum level. Quantum physics teaches that there is no difference between energy and matter. All body systems, from atomic to the molecular level, are constantly in motion-creating resonance. Different organs resonate at different frequencies. For example, the brain has a frequency of 70-78 MHz and the liver at 55-60MHz. The human energy field (HEF), that surrounds and flows through our physical bodies, is an electromagnetic field. Our HEF has energy centers throughout our bodies, these are our chakras. Each chakra is connected to a biological system. We also have meridians and extraordinary vessels that flow through our bodies, each connected to a biological system. An energetic dissonance coming from outside or inside our bodies can cause a disruption in our frequency and if left untreated can cause disease.
There are tools I can use to help with an energetic dissonance, such as tuning forks. These set a frequency that when applied to your body provides a coherent energy pattern that allows the disturbed resonant patterns to return to their original, harmonic and vibrational state. The same principle applies to crystals/rocks.
Reiki interacts with the HEF connecting it to universal energy through the practitioner. This universal energy flows through everyone, everything, everywhere and every time. Universal energy operates at a high frequency to help bring our bodies to a homeostatic vibrational state.
I believe that healing is interdimensional. We are not one dimensional beings. Wholistic healing occurs when all dimensions are functioning at their optimum vibrational state.
