My life changed when my son was diagnosed with Autism. I began researching ways to help him thrive, however to our surprise, it was my husband and I that needed more help than him.
By studying different therapies and nutrition I found that it was a combination pulled from different areas that worked for us both from a cognitive and physical well-being point of view. We all saw a great change in our family health and happiness. Soon we were engaging those closest to us to share this newly found knowledge and started seeing changes in their mind and bodies as well.
Understanding the impact we were seeing, we decided to build a practice and a retreat that would help other individuals and families that were searching for the same goals.
Diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 8, I learned at a young age that staying in bed, in pain, was not all there was to living. Enrolling in Shorin Ryu Karate-Do significantly increased my overall sense of well being and I was honoured to receive the rank of Shodan, first-degree Black Belt, in 2010.
While traveling to organic farms I learned to cook from Holistic Nutritionists, feeling the direct benefits of joint pain reduction and an increase in energy levels. During this time I was first exposed to yoga. I studied and practiced Reiki and Reflexology through Canmore Healing Earth in 2016 to aid in my own body healing.
When Ayurveda was presented into my life after these experiences everything just clicked -all the puzzle pieces of pain management, increasing energy levels, and building immunity were logically, scientifically and profoundly put together. The results of implementing an Ayurvedic lifestyle have been incredible. I have been studying Ayurveda formally with the California College of Ayurveda since 2016 and am a certified Ayurvedic Health Counsellor. In January of 2022 I will begin an Ayurvedic Clinical Specialist Internship, where I will be accepting clients with a broader scope of practice.
All of my clients' cases and recommendations will be determined with an Ayurvedic Doctor working alongside myself. I am passionate about working with others to apply the science of self-study to bring them holistic health. I am dedicated to empowering individuals with the most appropriate resources, knowledge and therapies to improve their quality of life.
I grew up with an interest in health and fitness at a young age, but my life was turned upside down with a cancer diagnosis at the age of 39 and with two young kids.
I knew it was a wakeup call that things needed to change. I started researching how to improve my health. It was a blessing that I came across info about holistic nutrition, and that is where my life dramatically changed. I completed the course and fast forward almost 14 years later I have consulted with hundreds of people. I teach at the CSNN college I graduated from.
I run a non profit group called healingstrong for people with cancer. I am also partnered with a top nutritional company USANA health sciences. All of these flow seamlessly together.
I am focusing my efforts on helping people that want to prevent cancer, or are in the state of healing with cancer.
I would love to walk the journey with you and guide you to your best body for life.
I am a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, Reiki Master (Usui Method), and, Reflexologist.
I started the study of Energy Medicine over 15 years ago with Reiki. I have been a Reiki Master since 1992. I studied and completed the Usui Method with Donalda Loucks in her home town of Mississauga, Ontario. I also completed Karuna Reiki- Levels 1 and 2.
I have also been studying Shamanism for the past 7 years, alongside a Native Elder as well as through coursework from the Federation for Shamanic Studies. In addition, I completed courses with the Sixth Sun Foundation in Toltec Shamanism.
I studied Reflexology with the Reflexology Association of Canada over 12 years ago. Since then, I have used the knowledge and techniques gained on many occasions to assist people in attaining optimal health. I had excellent results with people who have circulatory problems.
My 15 years in the healing arts has culminated in my undertaking the study of BodyTalk with the International BodyTalk Association. I started as a patient, and after my own health improvements, went on to embrace BodyTalk and become a Practitioner. I continually added to my knowledge through advanced studies in Bodytalk, including taking Traditional Chinese Medicine for Bodytalkers, Lymphatic Drainage, Breakthrough and much more. I conducted BodyTalk Sessions on both people, and their pets!
I love this healing system as it helps my clients to reclaim their health and joy for life!
My love for yoga began as a therapeutic recovery tool after a running injury. While healing and strengthening my knee, yoga created the connection I needed in my life between my mind, my body and most importantly my spirit.
A yoga teacher training program then magically found me which focused on Hatha and Kundalini yoga. I love to create classes incorporating my training as an advanced Reiki Practioner, Holistic Nutritionist and Meditation specialist.
Being of service to my community is one of my core beliefs and I now feel honoured to support others on their own personal healing journey.
Country living has shown me the importance of slowing down to appreciate nature, quiet, home grown food, and the company of those I love. My learning and experience with a natural, whole food diet has shown me how I can feel my best and how to avoid chemicals and pesticides in my food, water, and the air that I breathe. I want to share with others what I have learned and how I experience my surroundings every day.
