Touch for Health
Touch For Health® kinesiology is a holistic wellness approach using a system of setting goals and clearing stressors, causing an imbalance within the whole person; spiritual, emotional, and physical. This is achieved through the balancing of posture and subtle energies through dialogue, muscle testing, and touch reflexes to connect with the body’s natural capacity to rebalance using principles of acupressure, neuorlymphatic points, neurovascular holding points, meridians, acupressure holding points, nutrition, and more.
Certified Life Coach, LCTI
Life Coach Training Institute trains that coaching starts from the heart. Life coaching is an intentional relationship where a coach supports a client in developing vision and goals for their life and uses multiple strategies to empower the client to use their personal power to discover their own solutions. My goal as a Life Coach is to help every woman I work with see their potential and the real change that can occur in their lives as they take responsibility for their choices, fulfill their potential and reach their goals as I challenge, stretch, push, and hold them accountable all the while communicating an affirmation of "I believe in YOU! You are a Winner! You are Exceptional!"
Certified through International Coach Federation (ICF) and International Association of Certified Coaches (IACC).
Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing, heart-centered energy therapy that uses gentle, intentional touch that helps balance spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being. Healing Touch is a collection of standardized, noninvasive techniques that clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields. Healing Touch helps create a coherent and balanced energy field, supporting one’s inherent ability to heal. It is safe for all ages and works in harmony with standard medical care. Research suggests Healing Touch is beneficial in reducing stress, calming anxiety and reducing symptoms of depression, decreasing pain, strengthening the immune system, deepening spiritual connection, supporting cancer care, and supporting resiliency.
Lymphatic Technique with Essential Oils Training: In this hands-on cleansing technique, the client releases toxins through their lymphatic system. I apply essential oils and massage oil along with pressure to the skin to soften, activate, and move lymphatic fluid. This helps release emotional and physical obstacles and assists the body in achieving optimal health.
