Diploma in Fitness, Health and Nutrition
With a diploma in Fitness, Health and Nutrition, she received high honors from International Correspondence School of Canada in 1988. She has been a Reiki Master since 2000 and she believes healing starts with the spirit and the energy bodies surrounding the physical form. Emotions are our barometer and they show us how far away from our true self we have moved. Emotions are allies in releasing body illnesses and calls for our attention. We are spirit energy in human form having an earthly experience. YOU are powerful healers beyond words.
5 Elements Acupressure
She studied 5 elements Acupressure in 2006 with the Canadian Acupressure College in Victoria BC and received her diploma in 2009. By working with the body’s meridian pulses, and using the 5 elements in nature, the body learns to release trauma, emotions and pain to harmonize the flow of energies. The body knows HOW to heal itself; it simply needs help releasing the blockages to recreate balance of Body, Mind and Spirit. The body stores any unresolved emotions and manifests itself as aches, pains, headaches. It is her purpose to help people understand the body’s language.
