"I've had a Manual Therapy healing practice for 35 years. I consistently observe that the path to healing arises from a deep listening & from attaining balance & flow between the physical, emotional & spiritual aspects of our being. My interest in Holistic Health Care began when I put myself through University & Graduate school working as a Massage Therapist. At that same time, from an inspired vision, I designed, developed, & taught a program on Therapeutic Touch for the elderly at the Desert Institute for the Healing Arts. I hold MA Certification in Gerontology, BA in French Literature & Dance, & BA in Interdisciplinary Studies: Pre Med, Life Sciences & Humanities."
