I remember being 7 years old and seeing spirits walking through my room at night. I'd hide under the covers, just peaking out - I was so afraid - even though non of it was "scary." I was afraid because I didn't understand.
I've always been able to feel so much in the people around me and I could swear I heard their thoughts. So when I was 8 years old, I made a conscious decision to stop feeling and seeing "spirits" and other peoples energy. And it worked! Well, kind of.
From age 12 to 21, I trained in Martial Arts (Tae Kwon Do) and I loved it! I was blessed with a Grand Master who taught me about the "internal power" we all have.
A back injury at 23, swiftly moved me into the need for personal healing. After several doctors told me "they believed me" but there was nothing they could do to help my back except give me pain killers, I realized it really was time to find my own "internal power" and heal myself.
I began studying the physical body and emotional healing and I began practicing Qigong. After two and a half years of daily back pain, within one week of my Qigong practice I woke up without pain.
And then my real journey began, connecting the dots of the resentment and blockages I had in my body not only from the injury, but from years of suppressing certain emotions (and my intuitive gifts).
I experienced how my emotions directly impacted how my body felt. How my pain came back whenever I ignored what I needed to express, or do for myself.
As my private clients and students grew, another level of energetic understanding began to surface. I was tired and noticing that when I got home at the end of my day, I felt many of the exact same issues in my body and my emotions that I had worked on with my clients that day. For a while I really didn't get the connection. I ignored it and repeated this pattern over and over. Until I hit a breaking point.
Feeling so depleted I began to think about changing careers and I shared my experiences with a colleague who said, "I think you're just taking on the energy of your clients and students and you need to learn how to clear and fortify your energy system."
My journey to China and Qigong.. I got an opportunity to travel to China for 2 short trips, that allowed me to interact with Qigong masters and their healing. These experiences had such a deep impact on how I experienced energy, that I began to dedicate myself to understanding Chinese medicine and medical Qigong and I embraced the cultivation of my intuitive gifts and how to use them, while also keeping myself healthy.
For as long as I can remember I've been attracted to experiencing and understanding how energy moves within us and in every aspect of our live's.
As a Spiritual Intuitive, Master Teacher, Physician of Chinese medicine and a Doctor of medical Qigong (China), for over 20 years I've been teaching people how to elevate their personal frequency and tune into their intuitive wisdom, so they can live a life that's fully integrated with who they truly are.
My greatest joy is working with people who desire a high vibrational approach to their well-being.
Welcome to my studio, I look forward to meeting and working with you!
