I have always held the philosophy that in order for one to begin healing, the root cause must be found and addressed. I also recognize that not all disease begins on the physical level. In order to begin healing, consideration must be given to the whole person, on all levels, of mind, body and spirit, as they are all interconnected and interdependent. My own journey has given me a lot of insight into the many challenges one encounters in life. This has inspired me to want to help others, and enables me to bring a high level of empathy, respect and understanding to being a Holistic Health Practitioner.
In addition to many years of independent study, I am a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I chose IIN because it is a highly esteemed school, certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP), and is one of few accredited schools that has a Holistic perspective on healing and bringing optimal heath through balanced nutrition and lifestyle on a bio-individual basis. I am extensively trained in health coaching, and teaching clients to be experts on themselves.
I have been very intrigued by the possibilities of herbals as medicine since I was a teen. I have built my standards on the safe use of herbs and essential oils as medicine by studying the works of respected Professors and authors such as Terry Willard, PhD, ClH, founder of Wild Rose College of Natural Healing, and Robert Tisserand, and Rodney Young, among others.
I am Certified in second degree Reiki in the Usui Sysytem of Natural Healing. While there are many avenues to becoming a Reiki practitioner nowadays, I believe that to preserve and ensure the integrity of the practice, there is no substitute for in person attunement and training by an authentic Reiki Master with Usui Lineage. I received my in person training and attunement by C. Lynn Carr, "Sea", of Experience Reiki NJ. I began offering Reiki to clients at my Salon in 2019. I am aspiring and working towards becoming a Reiki Master later this year.
In addition to independent study, I received certification in Reflexology by Diane Hynes, B.A. CBT AOBTA at Warren County College, NJ.
I have been both musically and metaphsyically inclined most of my life, and I know the effects music and sound have on a person's energy body. I have studied for years independently on the theories of sound healing through choosing appropriate frequencies for specific issues, for resuming healthy function on all levels of Mind/Body/Spirit. I have been most drawn to the use of singing bowls and tuning forks to discover and correct imbalances in a person's energy field.
Holistic Healing is an umbrella term which includes many different healing modalities and theories, all of which take the whole person into consideration, on all interconnected and interdependent levels of mind, body and spirit. There are many different practices that fall under this umbrella, but all share the common perspective that everyone possesses the innate capacity to heal themselves by restoring balance by natural means. I believe the areas of focus that affect one's health and wellness most directly are in nutrition and emotional and mental well being. My area of specialty is in Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching, which addresses health concerns on all these levels, and may be combined with the other energy therapies I am proficient in, such as Reiki, Reflexology and Sound Balancing.
Doctors are lifesavers, they arrest acute physical situations, and put the fires out! Nutritionists help by devising plans for diets to promote and restore health. While both are most valuable, too often, this is where it ends, as their time per client is very limited. How many people do you know that have a chronic illness and have been prescribed medication to manage symptoms for the rest of their life? In some cases, they have been prescribed even more medications to manage symptoms from their medications! Unless their condition is genetic, chances are, there is a root cause for their illness, and a natural way to restore health, which may even eliminate the need for medications. With more in depth exploration into a person's lifestyle, past health history, indigenous ancestral background, key life events or levels of fulfillment in other areas of their life, underlying contributing factors may be discovered that are not obvious. With support and individualized strategies for deconstructing and reforming old patterns and balancing diet, real, lasting change is possible. Enter the health coach! Health Coaches bridge significant gaps in the healthcare system with a client centered, relational approach which focuses upon individualized goal setting strategies and accountability. At IIN, we are are extensively trained on the physiological effects nutrition has on the body, with a strong emphasis on holding space for each client with compassionate, personalized counseling, and that is what sets us apart. Many Doctors' offices are now using health coaches to enhance their practice. Independent health coaches may still work in concert with your doctor. In either case, you may find that you will reduce your health care costs overall, and have an invaluable supportive experience by having a relationship with a health coach.

"Rei" means spiritual Wisdom, "Ki" means Life force. Reiki is a gentle, safe practice of hands on healing which induces a deep, relaxed state that facilitates the optimal function of the parasympathetic nervous system, the body's innate, involuntary agency for healing. It positively affects the whole person by finding and removing energy blockages that are obstacles to mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health. Reiki is not a replacement for traditional medicine, but may be a complimentary catalyst for setting healing in motion and easing of symptoms. Reiki is also a powerful means for letting go of negative thought patterns that no longer serve us, stress reduction, balancing the chakras, and more. Following one or a series of Reiki Treatments, one may go forward with more mental clarity, less pain, and in a state of calm and peace. Services may be done in person, or remotely.
Reflexology is an ancient Chinese Practice which uses pressure points on hands and feet which are connected to areas and organs in the body. Reflexology is not a replacement for traditional medicine, but may be a complimentary catalyst for setting healing in motion and easing pain and symptoms.
Everything living and non living on the planet has a frequency. Certain methods of sound healing, such as singing bowls and tuning forks have frequencies when played, which correlate with the healthy frequencies in all parts and organs in the human body. When there are imbalances in the body, an external frequency which matches healthy frequencies in the body may then resonate and restore healthy function on the cellular level. Blockages or imbalances in the energy body from the past may manifest in the physical body as chronic pain or illness up to the present. These imbalances can be detected with the use of tuning forks, and removed and corrected. Sound healing is not a replacement for traditional medicine, but may be a complimentary catalyst for healing on all levels of mind, body and spirit.
