My acupressure journey began as an inspiration, evolved to a seed,
then a decision. A knowing to be made manifest, a path to share with
others, ultimately to be harvested as a deeply fulfilling
satisfaction. It has been a path to wholeness.
Growing up outdoors, a part of the elements, on the back of a horse,
I felt in close rapport with nature. I knew my connection with
nature was my life.
I began my studies at the Acupressure Institute of America in
Berkeley, California, graduating in 1991. Mirroring my spiritual
development was the study of the Spirit of the Points themselves,
allowing completion of Spiritual Dimensions of Healing in 1992.
Embodying nature within became my focus. I continued my education at
the Acupressure Institute, receiving a diploma in Emotional
Balancing in 1994.
My Acupressure journey continued with Chinese Medicine Five Element
focus becoming my passion. Seasonal workshops connecting each season
and its element became my practice.
In September 2005 I attended the SOPHIA Intensive at the Tai Sophia
Institute* in Maryland. This programís focus is becoming the needle:
learning to create movement and balance through oneís very own
presence or being.
My education continues with Sacred Intuitive Healing, further
studies in the sacredness of our relationship with the elements in
Nature; a Shamanic approach to Energywork; and Certification in
Equine Acupressure and Small Animal Acupressure, at the
Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute. As of August 2009, I am
certified with the National Board of Certification for Animal
Acupressure and Massage. As of October 2010, I am certified through
Tallgrass for Small Animal Acupressure, and Board Certified for
Equine and Canine Acupressure with NBCAAM. I look forward to further educational
opportunities, to keep my skills fresh and up to date, to serve my
clients, whether two-legged or four, to the best of my ability.
Acupressure is truly the beacon through which my light shines.
