Holistic Esthetician, Massage Therapist, Vegan Chef and Yoga Instructor.
My journey to a healthy self began well over a decade ago when I was a rebellious, angry teenager with a face full of acne. I discovered an interest and curiosity in skin health and skin care as well as massage therapy and felt an intense pull to learn more. As a young person, I was deeply troubled and struggled with everything from severe depression, anxiety, addiction, acne, migraines and an eating disorder. By 18, I knew I wanted to help people feel good and because of my own tremendous suffering, I felt an overwhelming empathy and compassion for the struggles of others. I acquired my massage and esthetics’s licenses and shortly after began my work in the healing arts.
Over the years to follow, I delved into all forms of the healing arts in a desperate attempt to relieve my own personal pain and anguish. Buddhism and yoga became my backbone during one of the hardest times of my entire life. Many times, I would drag my lifeless body and spirit to my alter or my mat for fear that I wouldn’t live through the day if I didn’t. It always pulled me thru but still, I was deeply unhappy and living in straight survival mode every single day. I felt like I had tried everything and I was exhausted and disappointed. To look at me, you would never know the depths of my personal pain…I was the picture of health, but on the inside, I was seething with self hatred. Gripped by abuse and addictions, i was completely disassociated from my true self. Eventually the bottom fell out, all of my coping mechanisms began to fail me and I was forced to reckon with myself.
Utilizing the power of Buddhism and yogic practices to keep me alive, I embarked on an intensive journey back to self. Stepping away from conventional Western philosophy and living, I was able to heal my entire being little by little and bring myself to a state of homeostasis for the first time in my life.
While living abroad in a developing country, I was deeply inspired to pursue an extensive career and personal lifestyle of nutrition and wellness. As a teacher and practitioner of Kriya and Vinyasa, a Buddhist and a serious empath, I have a burning desire to inspire others.
Quantum healing takes place on all levels…mental * spiritual * physical.
We all have the tremendous potential to heal our entire being from the inside out. My greatest joy in life comes from not only providing services to support this process but through educating others and empowering them to become their own healers.
