Hello there! I am glad you are here!
I imagine if you found my page, it is because you are looking for answers and your path led you here.
I, myself, had a lot of questions about my health and every time I reached out to western medicine I hit doors. I found myself on the holistic healing path through my own health quest. I had to take charge of my own health or else what? This led me to discover Vega Testing, a tool to discover and understand imbalances in the body. I deeply connected with this method and decided to embark on the journey to become a practitioner. I enrolled into the Holistic Nutrition Program with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition as well as Herbalism and Female Anatomy, Hormones and Cycle-Tracking (and I have a long list of other courses I want to achieve!). As Anthony J. D'angelo said: "develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow".
Pushing my own body a lot for my personal goals, I developed a deep curiosity about the human body and its ability for healing naturally giving it the environment it needs to do so. It made sense to add bodywork to my practice so I can fully support my patients. When I found Traditional Thai Massage (or when Thai Massage found me I should say!), I couldn't ignore the calling. Everything fell into place to train with Samadhi Thai Massage School in Nelson and I became a Thai Massage Practitioner. I am looking forward to continuing to educate myself to improve my practice and add to what I offer.
When I am not with patients or refining my knowledge, I am out in the mountains, in the forest, rock climbing, ice climbing, back country skiing or trail running, gardening and growing food or connecting with friends and my community.
My goal is to empower you to take control of your health and find trust in your body's capability of healing. I am here for you; listening and understanding your health situation as well as supporting you through your journey is my sincere purpose.
I believe in a Holistic approach.
The word Holistic comes from the Greek word Holos, which means Whole.
A Holistic approach views the body as a whole, not only as parts. It acknowledges body, mind, spirit and emotions to find balance in the quest for optimal health and wellness.
When talking about Holistic Healing, it means taking a big picture of who you are as a whole to find the root cause of what your symptoms might be, and to consider all these aspects in order to heal and bring back balance into your life.
With Wildness, an organism gains internal clarity, thereby presenting a consistent face or purpose to which other organisms can adapt. To be wild, there should be a level of honesty and directness, of spontaneity and instinctiveness. Organisms cannot properly participate in Wildness until they reach a level of internal quality or clarity where they have direct and honest touch with their base information and motivations.
There is a difference between wildness and wilderness. Wildness is the force or quality of interaction, while wilderness is a place where wildness flourishes and has most influence, but wildness doesn't need to occur in wilderness.
By organism, I refer to the human kind. (Lawrence J.Cookson, A definition for Wildness. Ecopsychology 2011; 187-191)
Wildness concept is a path, a way of living that keeps me true to myself, my values and my beliefs.
Wildness is a way of life and I invite you to explore it with me!
