I love assisting and guiding people who are in physical, emotional, or mental pain through yoga, body work, energy healing, herbs, and aromatherapy locally and remotely. In the near future I plan on incorporating healing retreats to further aid in my tribe's healing journey.
I am a yogini, energy healer, aromatherapist, herbalist, and all around nature lover. Since childhood I always thought of myself as being “different”, on the outside looking in. I would walk barefoot in the woods, always looking down as I viewed everything beneath my feet, and believed in the healing energy of the earth. Pretty much from childhood I used alternative methods of healing. This was especially true after receiving my M.S. in Biology and working in clinical research. I saw on a daily basis how pharmaceutical drugs were studied in regards to side effects, along with this it became apparent to me that more and more medications were being given to people in order to mask symptoms and “address” the side effects of other medications but never really healing the person. This concerned me greatly and I found a need to explore different types of alternative methods of healing.
I started my yoga journey as a result of physical pain in my 20s when I hurt my back and ended up with prolapsed and herniated discs in my lower spine. I went through numerous tests, spent time in various hospitals, only to be told that I could either have surgery or take pain medication and muscle relaxers. Unwilling to do either of these I eventually found yoga. Through the years I found that my practice not only helped me physically but it also allowed me to move beyond just the physical pain and peel back the layers eventually addressing the emotional, mental, and spiritual pain I felt as well, which had ultimately manifested itself as physical pain. Since our bodies are made of energy, I eventually added energy healing, as well as Thai yoga bodywork, meditation, aromatherapy, and herbs into my practice. The use of these additional methods has further aided in my healing. I believe if we allow ourselves to feel and move through our blockages and heal the different layers we can ultimately release them and enter a new space, a place of healing and wellbeing. Through the use of movement, breath, calming of the mind, and healing from the earth I have been able to release my pain and enter a new healing space for myself. You too can find your space of healing.
What I loved about Aromahead:
The courses were extremely thorough yet easy to follow. I learned so much in each and every unit. I especially loved learning about the chemistry of essential oils. It was so very enlightening.
