Ever since I was a child, I have been fascinated by the Orient, especially the healing aspects of Acupressure! Watching President Nixon's trip to China made a huge impact on me! As I rode horses, I saw how they responded to alternative treatments, such as Acupuncture and Reiki. As I became friends with the area's holistic veterinarians, I started to learn more about these healing modalities. I realized that I could help the horses and other animals with these techniques, and decided to become trained in Massage Therapy for animals, Acupressure, Reiki and finally Medical Qigong!
While helping animals was a big factor in my new life path, I also saw first hand how it could help people as well through my mother who was disabled at a young age. Through seeing her suffer with chronic pain; and seeing the amazing benefits that she received from what little help I could offer her at that time; I became more enthused about Energy Medicine!
While living in Florida, I became introduced to Qigong; it was during a four day seminar that I had a personal healing! I decided that I needed to learn more about this fascinating technique from the very best teachers I could find! I have been fortunate enough that many Masters have shared their knowledge with me, and I have been fortunate enough to have had a mentor, Grand Master Yuanming Zhang, who has taught me so much of the secrets that few people ever get to have handed to them! With him I have traveled to China and Tibet 4 times between 2012 and 2014, training at his center in China, Tianlonggong.
My practice now includes aspects of all 4 energy medicine modalities, and I have clients from near and far, both people and animals!
